The Syrian leader added that this confirms the importance of continuing cooperation in order not to allow the United States to rebuild the international terrorist system.
"The steadfastness of the Iranian nation in the principles and foundations laid down by the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini, which has continued through his determination, has paved the way for great triumphs of the great nation of Iran and the regional people, especially the people of Palestine," said President Al-Assad.
According to Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei "Syria today is not what it was before the war, although there was no destruction then, but Syria's respect and prestige are greater than before, and everyone sees this country as a power."
