Iran welcomes formation of new government in Syria

Tehran, SANA-Iran on Monday welcomed the formation of a new government in Syria, led by Premier Wael al-Halqi.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham expressed hope that following the June presidential election in Syria and formation of the new government, the country would “successfully weather an imposed crisis in an atmosphere of rapport and national unity.”

She also praised Syria for its steadfastness in the face of a foreign-fuelled crisis that has  gripped the country for over three years.

“With people’s support and steadfastness as well as the solidarity between the army and the people, Syria could withstand the terrorist invasion that was sponsored by certain foreign countries during more than three years of crisis in that country,” Afkham added.

Earlier on Sunday, a new government was sworn in before President Bashar al-Assad who provided the ministers with his instructions, wishing them success in their missions.
