FNA – Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf underlined his country’s continued support for the Syrian government and nation.

In a message to Speaker of the People’s Council of Syria Hammouda Youssef Sabbagh on Wednesday, Qalibaf congratulated her on reelection as the top legislator of Syria.

“I would like to express my sincere congratulations on the occasion of the beginning of the new term of activity of Syrian Parliament and your re-election as Speaker of the People’s Council of Syria.”

“I am confident that in the new term, like in the past, strategic relations between the two countries in various bilateral, regional and international fields will continue under your wise management and cooperation and interaction of lawmakers of the two parliaments,” Qalibaf said.

“I take this opportunity, while emphasizing Iran’s continued support for the Syrian government and people, to stress the significance of parliaments of the two countries for the development of economic cooperation between Iran and Syria. I request you to send my warmest greetings to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad,” he added.

In relevant remarks in July, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi underscored Tehran’s firm resolve to continue military cooperation with Damascus until expulsion of all terrorists from Syria.

“This cooperation is crucial in the new era when the Syrian government and nation is engaged in fighting against foreign aggression and terrorism led by the regional and trans-regional states,” Mousavi said.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is present in Syria at the invitation of the Syrian government and nation and the recent (military) contract is in line with this issue and God willing, these agreements and extensive political, military and economic cooperation with the Syrian government and nation will continue more than ever and until the end of the terrorist groups’ occupation,” he added.
