Larijani pointed to rule played by western powers in supporting terrorism; “we are confident that Syrian people will be the ultimate victor of this battle; we will never forget the support coming from Syrian government and people for Iran during war with Iraq; we deem fighting terrorism in Iraq and Syria as one contributing positively to man’s future on the planet,” he asserted.

On parliamentary relations, Larijani told the press about his ‘good meetings with Dr. Laham’ which discussed improvement of bilateral relations and exchanged data; “we wish success for Syrian people and government in fight against brutality of the beasts of the ISIL; we will always remain a supporter of Syrian government under any condition,” he said.

“I am now in Tehran to talk about and boost bilateral ties; we are attacked by terrorist Takfirists supported by the western hegemonic powers and which is their foster child; Iran and Russia are in the frontline of support for Syria; we have support by Iran and BRICS group on our sides,” Al-Laham told reporters.

On western sanctions, Syrian parliament speaker believed that sanctions sought to mount pressure on public welfare in the country. Laham criticized what he described as a systematic lack of will to fight terrorism in the region, despite many resolutions passed [by the UN] and the general consensus, now “we see mere passive reactions sporadically in the media,” Al-Laham lamented.
