Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said that the Islamic Republic is honored to support Syria and considers it as equal to supporting the entire resistance front.
He mentioned resistance of Syrian president and people as the main reason behind the defeat of the United States and its regional mercenaries.
The leader added, “Through resistance and cooperation of Syrian people, Syria managed to stand fast against a big coalition consisting of America, Europe and their allies in the region and emerge triumphant from this crisis.”
Ayatollah Khamenei said that the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue to stand by the Syrian nation.
Bashar Assad for his part, lauded Iran’s unbridled support for his country, saying that the Syrian war was similar to the eight-year Iraqi imposed war against Iran during 1980-88.
He added, “Iran and Syria are two nations with identity and ideology and although current achievements were gained through much suffering, they are certainly a result of steadfastness of the resistance front.”
