A senior lawmaker in Damascus said the involvement of Syria’s key allies in international talks in Vienna on the Arab country’s crisis is of vital importance to the future of his nation. “The presence of Iran and other Syrian allies in the Vienna talks guarantees safeguarding Syria’s sovereignty,” Jamal Rabe’eh told Fars News Agency on Sunday.

He noted that the presence of Iran and other allies of Damascus also ensures that the Syrian people will be able to preserve their right of self-determination despite US pressure. In early September, Rabe’eh said Syria “welcomes Iran and Russia’s military assistance” in the campaign against terrorism.
