Assad: West trying to change trend of Syria's victories
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, April 12, IRNA -- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Thursday that victories by his country's army in the fight against terrorism have prompted western countries to try to change the trend of events.
"Whenever the Syrian army achieves victory in the field, some western countries raise their voices and intensify their movements in an attempt to change the track of events," President al-Assad said in a meeting with top advisor of Iran's Supreme Leader Ali-Akbar Velayati in Damascus.
Velayati said that Syria's resistance against terrorism has been turned into one of the most intensive wars against the phenomenon.
The will of the Syrian nation in face of all the financial and arms support of the foreign countries for the terrorists can be adopted as a model by other nations in case of facing such a war, he said.
He also congratulated taking control of the Eastern Ghouta from the terrorists to the President and people of Syria.
Both sides in the meeting emphasized that recent allegations by Western powers were the result of the liberation.
The US has accused Syria of conducting an alleged chemical weapons attack near Damascus.
Velayati, who is also the secretary general of the Global Association of the Islamic Awakening, visited Syria to participate in a conference on Quds.
The two-day conference that began on Tuesday in Damascus was hosted by Syria's Ministry of Religious Endowments (Awqaf) and a number of Iranian institutions. Scholars from 15 countries also participated in the conference.
