Syrian FM appreciates Iran’s help for fight against ISIL
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem appreciated Iran for helping his country in its ongoing fight against terrorism and also efforts to work out a political solution to the Syrian crisis.
Muallem made the remarks in a meeting with Head of Majlis (Iranian parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi in Damascus on Wednesday.
Boroujerdi, heading a high-ranking delegation, is in Syria to meet the senior Syrian officials and discuss bilateral talks with them.
During the meeting with Muallem, Boroujerdi underlined Iran’s support for Syria, and said, ‘We welcome quadrilateral coalition between Iran, Syria, Iraq and Russia in the ongoing fight against the ISIL.’
‘This coalition is a positive step forward and anyone who claims to be fighting terrorism should adopt a positive stance towards the coalition,’ the senior Iranian legislator added.
