Iranian MPs Stress Support for Syrian Nation, Gov’t

Iranian parliamentarians in a statement on Sunday underlined their full support for the people and government of Syria, and called on Damascus to continue resistance against enemies’ plots.

In the statement signed by 245 Iranian lawmakers, the Iranian parliamentarians expressed pleasure in the failure of the plots hatched by the arrogant powers and Israel as well as the reactionary Arab regimes’ all-out support for extremist and violent groups.

They said that the Zionist regime of Israel is plotting against Syria because of Damascus’s support for resistance movements in the region, but ensured that “resistance can defuse all conspiracies”.

The Iranian MPs also called on the Syrian nation to decisively block any foreign interference in the Arab country, and stressed that they support reforms in Syria and any solution that will result in people’s participation in deciding their fate.

Earlier this week, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani reiterated Tehran’s support for the Syrian people and the reforms plan initiated by President Bashar al-Assad, and said Damascus needs time to implement the reforms.

Larijani made the remarks in a meeting with Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Omar Ibrahim Ghalawanji in Tehran on Wednesday, saying that Syria must be provided with adequate opportunity to implement its reforms.

“The West seeks to apply political pressure and propaganda against Syria to dismantle one of the legitimate resistance pivots against the aggressive policies of the Zionist regime through collaboration with some of the region’s reactionary countries,” he added.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed by the gangs who are clearly armed, financed and taking logistically support from Washington, Tel Aviv, Ankara, London, Berlin, Paris and certain Arab regimes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.

In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of increasing unrests in Syria.
