Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has reiterated Tehran’s support for Syria in its battle against terrorism.
“Iran will continue to back Syria in its battle against terrorism,” Zarif said during a Wednesday phone conversation with Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem.
The Iranian foreign minister also congratulated Muallem for the Syrian army’s breaking of years-long ISIS siege of the eastern city of Deir ez Zor.
He also highlighted the significance of boosting the Tehran-Damascus relations in all fields.
For his part, Muallem voiced his country’s gratitude for Iran’s continued support, and vowed that the Syrian army would not rest until the country is liberated from the scourge of Takfiri terrorism.
On Tuesday, Syrian army forces, backed by allied fighters from popular defense groups, reached the eastern city of Deir ez Zor and broke a nearly three-year-long siege imposed by ISIS.
