President Hassan Rouhani said Iran is ready to help Syria in its reconstruction  effort.
"Just as [Iran] stood by the Syrian people in their fight against terrorism, the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to employ all in its power for Syria's reconstruction." Rouhani said in a message to his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad on Saturday, ISNA reported.
He congratulated the Syrian president on the occasion of Evacuation Day, Syria's national day commemorating the evacuation of the last French soldier, the country's proclamation of independence as well as the end of the French mandate in Syria on April 17, 1946.
Rouhani said the Syrian people had made sacrifices in the past to gain independence and drive hostile powers out of their country.
The Syrians are now making tireless efforts to thwart enemies' plots, save their country from terrorists and gain new victories, he said.
