Damascus, SANA – Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi on Saturday met the Arab-European delegation currently visiting Syria to show support for it.
During the meeting, al-Zoubi said the Syrian people proved to be more resilient than the entire world imagined, stressing that the global conspiracy against Syria was very violent, as since the very beginning of what they dubbed “revolution” there were acts of violence that sought to topple the Syrian state.
The Minister noted that over 50 members of Syrian mass media establishments have lost their lives in the line of duty and many more were injured, and that mass media infrastructure sustained considerable damage, yet Syrian journalism persevered and remained committed to its duty.
He asserted that Syria’s positions and its refusal to abandon the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance, as well as its refusal to submit to US conditions, were the main reasons that led more than 80 states to take the decision to destroy Syria.
Members of the delegation stressed the need for people from around the world to visit Syria and witness firsthand the reality of what is happening in it and relay it to the world, asserting that their visit seeks to support the Syrian people, leadership, and army in the face of terrorism.
