Damascus, SANA- Speaker of the People’s Assembly, Hammouda Sabbagh, received on Tuesday President of the National Assembly of the Republic of Abkhazia, Valery Kvarchia and the accompanying delegation.
During the meeting, Sabbagh discussed with Kvarchia means of developing Syrian-Abkhaz parliamentary relations through the friendship committees at the People’s Assembly and the Abkhaz National Assembly.
Both sides hoped ties of friendship and bilateral cooperation would increase at all international forums to serve the common interests.
Sabbagh briefed the visiting delegation on the conspiracy and the universal war to which Syria is exposed on all political, military and media levels, in addition to the unilateral coercive economic measures imposed on the Syrian people.
For his part, Kvarchia stressed that the delegation’s visit to Syria largely contributes to pushing forward the relations between the two countries in all fields, pointing out that his country will go along with the presidential elections scheduled during this month through a delegation from the National Assembly.
Kvarchia announced that his country will continue standing by Syria and supporting its just causes, especially in the war against terrorism.
During the meeting, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, Daur Kofi and a number of members of the delegation affirmed their confidence that Syria, which faces terrorism with determination, will inevitably defeat it completely, appreciating the warm reception that the delegation has received since the start of its visit to Syria.
Following the meeting, the Syrian and Abkhaz sides signed an “agreement to boost and develop joint parliamentary work.”
