The “axis of resistance” will not allow the enemies of Syria to inflict the same miseries on the Arab country as they did on Libya, the head of the Center for Strategic Research of Iran’s Expediency Council said.

“Enemies of the Syrian government and nation want the country to suffer what Libya went through,” Ali Akbar Velayati said in a meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem in Damascus on Saturday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

He noted that in Libya, those who created the chaos have lost control of the situation. Libya has been grappling with violence and political uncertainty since the oil-rich country’s former dictator Muammar Gaddafi was deposed in 2011. Velayati emphasized that the “axis of resistance” (a term used to refer to anti-Israeli and anti-terrorism coalition made up of Iran, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon’s Hezbollah) will not let such plots and schemes materialize against Syria. The top Syrian diplomat underlined that Syria owes its victories in the battle against terrorists to the support of the Islamic Republic.
