Grand Mufti of the Republic Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun affirmed that preserving Syria preserves the Arab and Islamic nations and is the way to reclaim Qods, calling on the Syrian opposition to engage in dialogue.
During a ceremony held in the Syrian Embassy in Lebanon on Friday to honor the delegation from the goodwill committee of the World Assembly for Rapprochement among Islamic Doctrines, Hassoun said that Syria is paying a great price for the sake of Palestine and for the unity of the Arab and Islamic nations.
He said that this meeting is a gesture of tolerance and reconciliation and reuniting the nation in the face of the chaos threatening it.
In turn, Syrian Ambassador in Lebanon Ali Abdelkarim stressed that Syria has always been a model of coexistence, and that the aggression against Syria targets its civilized heritage and the unity of Muslims, asserting that Palestine will remain Syria’s compass and that victory is inevitable.
For his part, Secretary General of the World Assembly for Rapprochement among Islamic Doctrines, Mohsen al-Araki, said that defending Palestine and the rights of the Palestinian people is the duty of all Muslims, as is uniting the nation to face global tyranny and Israel.
