Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem lauded Iran’s support for his country’s stability, and stressed that nothing can ruin the good and strategic relations between the two nations.
“Nothing can undermine Iran-Syria profound and strategic relations,” al-Moallem told the Lebanese daily al-Akhbar on Thursday.
He called on certain regional states to avoid supporting anti-Damascus terrorist groups.
Also in similar remarks in August, Moallem praised Iran’s unsparing efforts to unite all the four elements of the anti-terrorism front (Iran, Iraq, Syria and Russia).
He lashed out at the UN for its inaction to confront the evil phenomenon of terrorism and extremism spreading in the region.
“It has now been clarified that the Takfiri terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Al-Nusra Front are more dangerous than the other terrorist groups in region, including Al-Qaeda and Taliban,” he said.
The top Syrian diplomat underscored that the anti-terrorism front’s elements are preventing spread of the ISIL’s activities to other world countries.
