Syria’s Assad congratulates Rohani on election victory

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has congratulated Iranian president-elect, Hassan Rohani, for securing the highest number of votes in the country’s 11th presidential election.

In his letter, the Syrian leader offered “heartfelt congratulations and best wishes” to Rohani on behalf of the Syrian nation for gaining “the trust of millions of the brotherly Iranian people,” Syria’s official news agency, SANA, reported.

President Assad further underlined the Arab state’s determination to boost bilateral ties and cooperation between the two countries. 

He also stressed the need for “confronting the plots of hegemony and aggression against the national sovereignty in our region in a way that reflects positively on the peoples of both friendly countries as well as the peoples of the region and the whole world.”

Foreign-backed militancy in Syria, which broke out in March 2011, has claimed the lives of many people, including large numbers of Syrian soldiers. 

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly voiced its opposition to any foreign interference in Syria’s internal affairs, calling for inclusive dialog and national reconciliation as well as free elections as keys to the settlement of the crisis in the country.

In a similar congratulatory note, Chairman of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq Ammar Hakim also felicitated Iran’s president-elect, expressing the need for the expansion of bilateral relations between Tehran and Baghdad.

Rohani won Iran’s June 14 presidential race, gaining 18,613,329 votes, or 50.7 percent of a total of 36,704,156 ballots.

Rohani currently represents Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in the country’s Supreme National Security Council, is a member of the Expediency Council and the Assembly of Experts, and is also president of the Expediency Council’s Center for Strategic Research.

I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world.
