Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian revealed, in statements he made upon his arrival at Damascus airport today, Saturday, that his country is interested in relations with Syria and will continue to stand by it in the next stage.
The minister also indicated that the bilateral agreements between the two sides “will be implemented in the interest of the two peoples” and that Iran “will stand at this stage by Syria’s side, as it stood with it during its war on terrorism.”
Abdullahian also went to the Syrian capital from Beirut at the end of his visit and the talks he held with senior officials there.
Damascus is the third leg of the Iranian foreign minister’s tour, which he started earlier this week from the Russian capital, Moscow.
Abdullahian had visited Damascus a while ago, during which he met President Bashar al-Assad and Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad, at the conclusion of the Iraqi Neighborhood Conference held in Baghdad.
