Al-Moallem Briefs Venezuelan Delegation on the Ferocious Campaign Facing Syria
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Walid al-Moallem on Wednesday explained to the Venezuelan Deputy Foreign Minister Temir Porras the background and the dimensions of the ferocious campaign targeting Syria which is linked with foreign plots.
Al-Moallem said during his meeting with Porras and the accompanying Venezuelan delegation that Syria has confronted this campaign with its people’s awareness, national unity and their support to the comprehensive reforms announced by President Bashar al-Assad in the political, economic and social fields.
Minister al-Moallem said that the media war launched against Syria is based on misleading and incredibility.
Al-Moallem briefed Porras on what is taking place in Syria, highlighting the wide popular participation in the ongoing national dialogue sessions to reach a common ground for work during the forthcoming stage that is based on enhancing the independence of national decision, sovereignty of law, the building of a state of institutions, justice and equality and rejecting all forms of foreign interference.
Minister al-Moallem hailed the statement issued by the foreign ministers of the ALBA countries during their meeting in Caracas on September 9, 2011 in which they expressed their support to Syria at the international forums against the campaign facing it.
In turn, Porras stressed Venezuela’s support to the reform steps taking place in Syria, reiterating his country’s solidarity and that of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean with Syria, people and leadership, in these circumstances.
The meeting also dealt with the means of boosting the Syrian-Venezuelan relations in all fields.
Later, Porras discussed with his Syrian counterpart Fayssal Mikdad the situation in Syria and the whole region.
Venezuela supports Syrian people’s aspiration to live in peace
Parras underlined his country’s rejection of the ferocious media campaign against Syria and bids aiming at destabilizing the country through armed terrorist groups, reiterating his country’s support for Syrian people to live in peace without foreign intervention.
“We came to Syria to express our support and solidarity with the Syrian people, and to express our resentment of the media war against Syria which adopts independent policy based on sovereignty and the respect for people.” Porras said at a press conference following his meeting with Mikdad.
He added “I came here to convey a message that Venezuela and ALBA countries and your friends in Latin America can be trust-worthy to prevent that campaign from continuation.”
Mikdad, for his part, said that Mr. Porras came to Syrian upon directives of President Hugo Chavez to reiterate the Venezuelan people’s support to Syria in the face of terror attacks launched by the armed terrorist groups.
“Syria will overcome the crisis stronger… Syrian peoples’ destiny is to continue struggle to regain the Arab nation’s rights and face all challenges in this region.” Mikdad added.
