BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad met with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Damascus, today, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

The talks reportedly touched on a number of topics, including the upcoming Russian-Iranian-Turkish peace summit that is going to be held in Tehran.

According to SANA, President al-Assad and Zarif asserted that the pressure exerted by some Western states on Syria and Iran will not dissuade them from defending their principles, their people’s interests, and the security and stability of the entire region.

The two sides said that these policies against Syria and Iran show the West’s failure in achieving the plots they had devised for the region.

Assad and Zarif voiced their satisfaction over the level of relations between the two countries; they both agreed to continue consultations and coordination on all levels, particularly in light of the rapidly shifting regional and international variables.

The Iranians are true friends to ordinary Syrian citizens having helped President Assad of Syria slow down the progress of ISIS and other foreign jihadis until further help arrived in from the Russians in Sept 2015. I salute the Iranians sacrifice and hope to visit both Iran and Syria in the near future.
