Envoy Meets AssadEnvoy Meets Assad

Hossein Jaberi Ansari, a senior assistant to the foreign minister, called on Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in Damascus on Monday to discuss the latest developments in the war-torn country.

Condemning the US-led attacks on Syria, the envoy said, “Victories of the Syrian Army and its allies against terrorists pushed the US-led coalition to carry out the military attacks,” Fars News Agency reported.

He reiterated that Washington, Paris and London were worried about the continuation of such victories and their expansion to other areas in the war-ravaged country.

Jaberi Ansari also briefed Assad on Tehran’s political efforts aimed at helping end the war in Syria.

The Syrian president said that the recent US-led military strikes against his country will not be able to stop the country’s war on terrorism.

He underlined that Syria’s battle against terrorism will continue until control is restored all over the Arab country’s territory.

On April 14, the US, France and Britain carried out missile attacks on selected targets in Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma, near Damascus, that reportedly took place on April 7.
