EghtesadOnline: President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday vowed to help the Srian government fight terrorism and restoration of security in the region.
Rouhani made the remarks in a meeting in Tehran with visiting Speaker of the Syrian People's Assembly Hadiyeh Khalaf Abbas.
Rouhani dismissed the Western media speculation about re-mapping the Middle East, saying that Iran believes that border changes will not help restore peace and security in the region, according to IRNA.
The Syrian people are witnessing a difficult time, Rouhani said, adding that what will remain in the history will be the way the Syrian nation stood up to foreign intervention.
'We are certain that the Syrian people will be the ultimate victorious,' the president said, expressing hope that the negotiations between the Syrian government and the opposition groups, who are committed to the country's independence and the will of the nation, will yield fruit at the earliest.
The Syrian speaker, for her part, hailed Iran's support for the Syrian people, saying, despite all the enemies' plots, Iran has always remained a big supporter of the Syrian nation.
Khalaf Abbas said that it is only the Syrian nation that can determine the destiny of the country and that the US and other world powers should help stop terrorism if they are really seeking to help the Syrian people.
