Damascus, SANA – The Iranian Embassy in Damascus held a reception ceremony Sunday marking the 39th anniversary of the victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution at Damascus-based Dama Rose Hotel.
In his speech during the ceremony, the Iranian Ambassador in Damascus Javad Turk-Abadi underlined the solid Syrian-Iranian relations and means to boost bilateral cooperation serving the interests of the people of both countries.
He reaffirmed his country’s intention to participate in the rebuilding of Syria so that it would enjoy growth and prosperity, stressing Iran’s calls to make the intra-Syrian dialogue a success away from any foreign intervention.
Ambassador Turk-Abadi stressed Iran’s commitment and its key role in providing support to Syria and Iraq to fight terrorism, expel takfiri terrorists and preserve national sovereignty.
For his part, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad hailed Iran’s supportive attitudes and its standing by Syria to confront the terrorist war waged on the country and foil the US-Zionist scheme to turn al-Quds into a capital for the Israeli entity.
Mikdad expressed gratitude to all strugglers and free people around the world for their support to defeat terrorist groups and achieve victory in Syria, side by side with the Syrian Arab army and its allies.
He added the Syrian military achievement represented by the downing of an Israeli warplane can be considered as a strong indication of Syria’s determination to defeat its enemies, adding that anybody intends to commit acts of aggression against Syria will suffer the same fate.
