Iranian president Hassan Rouhani says the world has realized the fact that the Syrian government and people are involved in a battle against terrorism.
In a meeting with Syrian Prime minister Wael al-Halqi in Tehran, Rouhani said the crimes in Iraq further revealed the nature of the Takfiri militants and exposed the enemy's plot against Muslims. The Iranian president hailed Syria’s resistance against foreign-backed militants over the past 4 years. He stressed that dialogue is the only solution to Syria’s problems. Halqi, for his part, thanked Iran for its support for Syria. He said Damascus is ready to consider any initiative for national reconciliation in Syria, provided that they respect the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
