Bashar al-Assad ‘stronger than 4 years ago’

TEHRAN, Aug. 05 (MNA) – Adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Republic and a member of Expediency Council has told a meeting in Tehran Syrians would not ‘give in the ruses’ by the US and ‘reactionary regimes' of the region.

Ali Akbar Velayati who was speaking at the 2nd International Conference on Constitutional Revolution on Wednesday, said that Iranians especially in Azerbaijan had been resisting the excessive demands of the enemies, and now “they are in the path to progress guided by the Leader of the Islamic Republic wise leadership.”

Velayati added that Iran would not be indifferent to the fate of other countries in the region, and apart from the necessity of solidarity with the regional countries, its national security mandated that Iran should help these countries ‘without any reservations.’

On Syrian crisis, Velayati denounced US Secretary of State’s regional visit especially to Qatar as producing no outcome, since “Syrian people would not give in the ruses of the US and reactionary regimes of the region.”

“They always support and foster terrorists; definitely, Assad is even stronger than 4 years ago; and will resist against ISIL and former Baathists now fighting his army; Iran supports the public will in Yemen, Iraq and Syria,” he added.

Velayati, who is also the Secretary-General of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening, also touched upon nuclear deal with world powers; “the negotiations had been under the sagacious vision of the Leader since the beginning, and without his wise positions and guidelines, it would not have progressed; now, after the deal, the most important issue is its implementation; western powers had not lived to their promises during the history; we would negotiate with them; we, however, would not be overzealous in facing the realities,” he emphasized.

“It is quite unparalleled in the history that a country sits on the table and negotiate six world powers; if not for the people’s resistance, such achievements would not be possible to strike; Iran is the first country enjoying the status of recognition of its nuclear program in the United Nations,” he concluded.
