17 December, 16:16

    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, DECEMBER 17 - Iran will always be ''at the Syrian population's side against terrorism'', President Hassan Rouhani was quoted by Syrian state news agency SANA as saying on Wednesday.

    Rouhani's remark came during a visit to the Iranian capital by Syrian prime minister Wael Al-Halqi. Halqi conveyed a message to Rouhani from President Bashar Al-Assad on what he called the ''two countries' shared intention to deal with conspiracies by the US, Israel and the West and their regional pawns, who provide material, moral and political support to terrorist organizations.'' Iran is the closest ally of the Syrian regime, which calls all the armed groups of the opposition ''terrorists'', and not only the jihadist organizations like the Islamic State (ISIS) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat Al-Nusra.
