DAMASCUS, (SANA) – President Bashar al-Assad on Monday received a delegation of Jordanian political activists, lawyers, doctors and engineers headed by Assistant secretary General of the Arab Lawyers' Union Samih Khreis.
The meeting tackled the situation in the region in general and Syria in particular, with the delegation members voicing the Jordanian people's support for the Syrian people in their current ordeal.
They affirmed that honest Arabs will not leave Syria alone in the face of the conspiracies against it, and that the Syrian blood was shed in defense of all honest Arabs and that it will write Syria's coming victory.
The delegation members said that targeting Syria isn't new or surprising since it's a country that has been bearing the burden of Arab causes for decades, lauding Syria's firm stances in adherence to Arab dignity, rights and Arab causes which put it in a position of honorable confrontation with the enemies of the nation.
For his part, President al-Assad thanked the delegation members for their national stances in support of the Syrian people, affirming that Syria will remain the beating heart of Arabism and that it will not relinquish its principles no matter how much pressure is exerted upon it and regardless of the conspiracies that not only target Syria, but also all Arabs.
Members of the delegation stressed in TV interviews after the meeting that President al-Assad assured them that the crisis in Syria will pass and the situation is going towards Syria's inevitable victory.
They asserted that Syria, under the leadership of President al-Assad, will emerge out of the crisis stronger than before, pointing out that the relations between the Jordanian and Syrian peoples are deep-rooted and the conspiracy which is hatched against Syria is also hatched against Jordan.
