Syria Ties to Broaden Further

Syria Ties to Broaden Further

Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani commended the recent successful parliamentary elections in Syria, saying the Islamic Republic will continue to broaden its “close and extensive” cooperation with the Arab state.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s strategy is [based on] close and extensive cooperation with the government and nation of this country [Syria] with a view to establishment of stability, peace and security in the region,” Larijani said in a message of congratulation to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Monday, Press TV reported.
He noted that the high turnout of the Syrian electorate despite “widespread political, psychological and security pressures” and “futile attempts” by terrorist groups to prevent a massive public participation indicated the Syrians’ strong support for President Assad.
The top Iranian parliamentarian said the Syrian people regard Assad as the symbol of their country’s resistance and independence, despite all-out aggression by terrorist elements and their regional and international supporters.
Larijani expressed confidence that terrorist and extremist groups will soon be defeated in Syria.
The Syrian electoral commission announced late Saturday that the National Unity coalition, comprising the ruling Ba’ath Party and its allies, had won 200 of the 250 seats in the People’s Assembly.
