Tasnim – Syrian Minister of Awqaf (Endowment) Mohammed Abdul-Sattar Al Sayed highlighted the US government’s failed policy toward the Iranian nation and said Washington’s measures against Tehran have gotten nowhere.
Speaking at a meeting with Iranian Ambassador to Damascus Javad Torkabadi, Sattar, who was accompanied by a number of Syrian religious scholars, offered his congratulations over the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution’s victory.
Iran’s Islamic Revolution, which changed regional equations, has led to the victories of the Resistance Front, he said.
The Syrian minister further pointed to US measures against the Islamic Republic and said every action that Washington has taken against Tehran has failed because the Islamic Republic is on the path of the guidelines of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.
He further expressed his gratitude to the Iranian people and government over the country’s support for Syria in its campaign against Takfiri terrorism.
Conflicts erupted in Syria back in 2011, when a small group of opposition forces took up arms against Damascus.
Soon, however, a mix of international terrorists and paid mercenaries mingled with and then largely sidestepped the armed Syrian opposition groups, effectively turning the Arab country into a battlefield for foreign governments opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
But the Syrian military, with advisory military help from Iran and Russia — and a Russian aerial bombardment campaign — has retaken control of much of the country, and the conflict is generally believed to be winding down.
