A senior lawmaker met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Monday where he discussed the latest developments in the Arab nation and the region. Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said Iran will remain, as it has always been, steadfast in its support for Syria, vowing to keep up efforts aimed at achieving a political solution determined by the Syrians that preserves the unity and sovereignty of Syria, IRNA reported. The Syrian president said the region in general is going through a phase of redrawing the entire international map, adding that the escalation of aggression against Syria is an attempt in that direction.  “The fact that hostile countries have shifted to a stage of direct aggression after the fiasco that has befallen their agents and elements will only increase the Syrians’ determination to eliminate terrorism in all its forms, and uphold their sovereignty and their right to shape their own future,” he was quoted as saying by SANA news agency.
