Iran: What Assad has accomplished is unique in its kind


TEHRAN — Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad met on Tuesday with Ali Akbar Velayati, advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution on International Affairs, to discuss bilateral relations as well as international and regional issues.

During the meeting, which was also attended by the Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Bashar al-Jaafari, Velayati stressed the strategic relations between the two countries, as well as the need for special focus to promote relations between Iran and Syria.

Syria has been at war with foreign-backed militant and terrorist groups terrorists since 2011.

“The confrontation with the enemies in Syria continues, and the alliance of the countries of the Resistance Front in recent years has made it possible to take effective, successful and unprecedented measures against the continued domination of foreigners in this very sensitive region, coveted by the United States and Britain in the past.”

The veteran politician added that the formation of the resistance front which has achieved great successes has given the Islamic world hope that with the resistance the aggressors can be humiliated.

“What the Syrian president has done in recent years against the cowardly invasion of some countries in Syria with the leadership of the United States, the Zionists and some reactionary countries in the region, is unique in its kind,” he noted.

He then reiterated that this couldn’t be achieved without the support of Iran, Russia, Hezbollah and most importantly the resistance of the brave Syrian nation.

“The resistance front will undoubtedly achieve the final victory,” the former foreign minister remarked.

Elsewhere in his remarks, the advisor to the Leader said, “The Yemeni resistance has defeated the occupiers and will soon force them to retreat. We will soon be witnessing an independent, powerful country and a strong supporter of Islamic values.”

Saudi Arabia which has been bombarding Yemen since March 2015 is pressing allies to supply additional missiles for its U.S.-made Patriot air defense systems as its conflict with Yemen’s forces once again intensifies.

Riyadh has asked both the United States and certain European states to provide additional munitions for its Patriot systems, The Wall Street Journal reported on December 7.
The request comes as missile and drone attacks from Yemen into Saudi Arabia have spiked in recent months, with more than 20 drone strikes and 10 ballistic missile strikes landing in both October and November of this year, according to the report, which cited a Saudi government official.

‘Regional states that cooperated with hegemons against Syria now seek get close to Damascus’

Velayati also said certain Arab states that colluded with the Western hegemons to topple the Syrian government now want to reestablish contacts with Syria.

This shows that the Islamic world has realized that reliance to aliens is a thing of the past.

The advisor to the Leader was indirectly referring to a move by certain Arab countries to approach Syria. The recent visit by the UAE foreign minister to Damascus and his meeting with the Syrian president is an example.

There are even talks of readmitting Syria to the Arab League.

‘Lebanon will overcome problems’

Velayati also predicted that Lebanon will leave behind these difficult days created by U.S. sanctions on Beirut.

“Undoubtedly, the Lebanese people also will overcome the problems created by the United States and its mercenaries in the region and will continue to resist as the flag bearer of Lebanon’s independence and territorial integrity.”

In late October, Saudi Arabia also cut economic and diplomatic ties with Lebanon under the pretext that Lebanese Information Minister George Kordahi had criticized the Saudi war on Yemen.

However, Kordahi resigned on Dec. 3, saying he was putting the country before his personal interest to help end a dispute with Saudi Arabia brought on by his comments.

Velayati reiterated that Lebanon is among the countries of the Resistance Front that can be a model for the whole world with its positive effects in recent years, which is unique in contemporary history.

For his part, Mekdad thanked Tehran for its support to the Syrian people and government and pointed to the key importance of Damascus-Tehran relations, saying a meeting between the presidents of the two presidents can mark a turning point in relations.

“The relations between the two countries are very important and the meeting (between the two presidents) will take place after the necessary preparations are completed,” Mekdad pointed out.

Syria’s chief diplomat also said, “The interaction and cooperation between Iran and Syria is a message for future generations to understand the strategic dimensions of this strong relationship and not allowing foreigners and adventurers to interfere.”

Explaining about the latest development in the region including Syria, Mekdad described the continuous aggression of the Zionist regime against his country and the illegal military presence of the U.S. in Syria coupled with Washington’s sanctions on Damascus as a violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of that country and the main source of insecurity and economic pressure.

The Syrian foreign minister stressed the need for the United States to withdraw from the region, saying that Washington has no future in the region and must leave the Syrian territory.

In a report on Oct. 26, Al Jazeera reported that the United States will not be withdrawing its roughly 900 troops from northeast Syria any time soon, despite mounting speculation it would do so following its much-maligned August pullout from Afghanistan, according to officials with knowledge of the Biden administration’s plans.

  1. Actually the reality for those that still believe in truth and God’s rule of law is what Iran has achieved is very very unique – actually amazing.. US now understands that it really can’t start a war with Iran and what basis it has in ME must be closed soon or else. When Gen. Soleimai’s replacement Ghaani says we will “crush your teeth” he means it and Iran can do it not just with rockets but with EW and other secret weapons and that’s why US has removed its aircraft carriers from PG. As soon as Israel and US start something the Persian Gulf will be closed for business, US will loose a great bulk of its navy around those areas and of course Israel will be maimed. Enough is enough, US has resorted to stealing oil and destroying countries in order to survive and also help expand the the Zionist state and start another attempt at establishing its satanic NWO. It’s got to a point where they have even brought about the Plandemic in order to kick start the NWO by digitizing the economies and everyone on the planet. US is indeed an evil empire. But now who stands against all this – not Russia, not even China… Iran and its resistance coalition. The sling which David used at the time was a technological weapon, this time around it will be EW and Plasma Technology. You can laugh now, but you will see this happen. Enough is enough!

  2. Here comes a comparison that really bears no comparisn:
    . ((And by the way; The birthday of the “Tet offensive” in the Southern half oóf Vietnam falls on the Chinese.Vietnâmese New Year, just when Potin et. al. will attend the Winter Olympics in and around Bĕijing, A very convenient location for a common cooperation cammand in case of international provocations from Atlantis and Palestinian (i.e. Zionist) declining powers — Shoygu speaks Chienese, Turkish and Japanese, among his other qualities.))

  3. . Isn’t it interesting –and most instructive– to compare the Syrian self.defence war to what the US of North A pretended to support and defend in the Southern part of Viet Nâm:
    . The latter war was supposedly against foreign (Nortern) intruders and invaders (even though the Southern political elite was dominated by Northern catholics quislings who had been relocated to Saigon). The US of North A secret services had helped those Northern quislings to massacre local Southern rural leaders by the tens of thousands in the South. Only then — and after US of North A army, navy and air force entered the war permanently under prostitant Lyndon Flintstone Johnson — only then did Northern regular army forces come soutn to support the Vietnâmese peasant, proletarian and intellectual rebels there (at a time when the quislings had also started killing off religious leaders of Cao Dai priests and certain Buddhist leaders,)

  4. And then of course chemical warfaire and napalm burning of babies on the grandest scale ever by any “Us” government after Dresden, Tôkyô, Hirôshoma, Nàgasaki and Pyongyang.
    . In Syria, on the contrary, a government that had to some degree been dominated by Muslims from the small Alawite minority turned more and more liberal, democratic and inclusive. So of course the US of North A and pertly Israêl had to send in fanatic head-cutters from tha Arab world, Russia’s Chechnya, — and even from Chinese Xīnjiāng. And when they had a hard time fighting the legal Syrian
