“We stress the importance of implementing the previous agreements among the guarantor states -Russia, Iran and Turkey- on Syria and announce our support for the political resolution in the country along with combating terrorism till eliminating it completely” said Raisi during the summit of heads of Astana guarantor states held Tuesday in Tehran.
He added “we reiterate Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity , as well as the right of Syrians in determining their country’s future without any external interference and we hope that this meeting will achieve the aspired-for outcomes that enhance Syria’s stability”.
