Tehran, Damascus fighting terrorism in same front: Syrian speaker

Damascus, Jan 5, IRNA – The speaker of the Syrian parliament said that Iran and Syria are both fighting in the same front against terrorism that is backed by the US.

Hamoudeh Sabbagh in a meeting with a delegation from Iran's parliament (Majlis) on Thursday evening said that the two countries are fighting to eradicate terrorism and to establish peace in the region.

Acknowledging Iran's support for Syrian government and people in the war against terrorism, he said, 'Syria's priority is annihilation of terrorism, boosting national conciliation and reconstruction in post war era.'

The Syrian lawmaker also condemned the US interference in Iran's internal affairs, saying that Washington has always acted in accordance with the demands and interests of the Zionist regime.

'The US has always played a negative role in the Middle East, so the interventions by Washington in Iran's unrest was not surprising, as the country has made a habit of meddling in internal affairs of other countries and violation of international law,' the lawmaker said.
