Jul 30, 2012
TEHRAN, (SANA)- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran underlined that Iran is a brotherly country to Syria and stands by it in the face of conspiracy till right wins over unjust.
Meeting Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem, President Ahmadinejad expressed confidence that Syria will win thanks to the wise leadership of President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian people’s support to his leadership.
Al-Moallem, stressed Syria’s determination to foil the conspiracy to which it is exposed, and to fight the armed terrorist groups which perpetrate terror acts, kill civilians, attack private and public properties, supported by Arab and western countries which supply them with weapon and money.
Al-Moallem also met the Secretary of the Iranian Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili and the Speaker of the Iranian Shura Council Ali Larijani, briefing them on the current situation in Syria.
Jalili and Larijani, for their part, underlined the importance of continuing coordination and consultation between the two countries, expressing confidence that Syria will win its war against the conspiracy to which it is exposed.
Earlier, al-Moallem discussed during a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salihi the bilateral relations and the current situation in the region, particularly in Syria, expressing Syria’s determination to come out of the crisis stronger.
Al-Moallem stressed that Syria has agreed on the six-point plan of the UN Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan, most importantly, halting violence by all sides.
Foreign Minister also hailed the stances of Russia and China which stand by the international law and the UN convention and their assertion on Syria’s territorial integrity and non-intervention in its domestic affairs.
Al-Moallem: Syria Possesses Defense Capabilities Sufficient to Defend Each Grain of Its Soil
Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Moallem, stressed that Syria possesses defense capabilities sufficient to defend each grain of its soil, stressing the Syrian people’s steadfastness in the face of the crowd of countries that are ferociously conspiring against them.
„The Syrian people are determined to face the conspiracy hatched against them and achieve victory over it,“ al-Moallem said in a joint press conference with Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi in Tehran on Sunday, stressing that the Syrian army will continue facing the armed terrorist groups on the ground.
He highlighted the Syrians‘ steadfastness throughout the crisis despite the inhumane siege imposed by the US, the EU countries and the states of the so-called Arab League which targets the Syrians with their living.
Al-Moallem: The Syrians‘ Determination to Face the Conspiracy Is Now Stronger
He said what has increased the Syrians‘ steadfastness and rallying around their leadership was that they have exposed the dimensions, parties and tools of the conspiracy and Israel’s involvement in it along with some Arab states.
Al-Moallem stressed that Syria is facing a systematic media instigation, referring also to the scheme behind the terrorists bombing of the National Security building which claimed the lives of four military leaders.
He cited in this regard what his Iranian counterpart told him when offering condolences over the leaders‘ martyrdom when he said that Iran get out stronger after the assassination of Iranian leaders during a meeting at the Republican Party building.
„Today I say to you that Syria is stronger and our determination to face this scheme is stronger, and we have proved this on the ground since the Wednesday when they planned for what they called „The Great Battle for Damascus“,“ said al-Moallem.
He continued that despite the groups of terrorists who were mobilized for the battle, „they were defeated in less than a week and the battle failed, so they moved to Aleppo where they will certainly fail.“
Al-Moallem: Syria Committed to a Middle East Free of Weapons of Mass Destruction
Minister al-Moallem reiterated Syria’s position proclaimed since 2003 on calling for establishing a Middle East weapons of mass destruction free zone when it submitted a draft resolution regarding this issue to the Security Council which is still there but not put to the vote because of the US obstruction.
He said that Syria has been facing for more than a month now an intensive campaign by the US, western and some Arab countries about possession of chemical weapons.
„Whether or not we possess unconventional weapons, Syria has repeatedly declared its readiness to establish a region free of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction,“ al-Moallem stressed.
„The truth is that Syria is a country of confrontation as part of its land is under the occupation of Israel which possesses nuclear capabilities acknowledged by the US,“ al-Moallem added, pointing out at the Pentagon Israel is said to have over 200 nuclear bombs.
He noted that in 1968 Syria joined the 1925 Geneva protocol on the prohibition of biological weapons proliferation and is committed to what it signed.
„As with regard to the convention on prohibition of chemical weapons, we are ready to sign it if signed by Israel. This is fair and legitimate and Syria is a responsible country that respects international legitimacy and the rules of international law in this regard,“ said Minister al-Moallem, adding that Syria wants welfare to prevail the region.
Asked on the plan of the UN envoy Kofi Annan, al-Moallem reiterated Syria’s full abidance by the plan being „a reasonable plan and an appropriate means to resolve the crisis in Syria.“
He cited two essential points in the plan: the preventing of foreign interference in Syria and the stress on the political solution.
With regard to the implementation of Annan’s plan, the Foreign Minister made clear that the Syrian government has offered all it could and pulled out its forces from the Syrian cities.
He highlighted the fact that the implementation of the plan will guarantee preventing interference in the Syrian internal affair by such countries as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.
„This is an important point in Annan’s plan to prevent disrupting security in Syria as the opposition still up to this moment can engage into serious dialogue with the government,“ said al-Moallem.
Al-Moallem added that the conspirators are so fierce that even when security and stability are restored to Syria, the conspiracy will not end, and that Israel is the mastermind of the conspiracy and regrettably there are some Gulf states supporting Israel in implementing the conspiracy, which is why the international activity against Syria has not ended.
Answering a question, al-Moallem said, „the terrorist groups which come across the borders from Turkey to Syria are from various nationalities: Egyptians, Libyans, Iraqis and others,“ pointing out that a number of the Iraqi terrorists arrested in Syria belong to Al Qaeda.
He added, „There are others who came to Syria as journalists and later the authorities discovered they were not journalists, and many of those who were arrested in Syria took up arms and fought against the Syrian Arab Army and the government,“ pointing out that those who surrenders their weapons and whose hands are clear of blood will be pardoned immediately, and as for those who want dialogue and have demands, their demands will be studied and the legitimate ones will be addressed.
The Foreign and Expatriates Minister said „what we want from Lebanon is to remain safe and united and to help us prevent the infiltration of terrorists through its borders.“
On the statements of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in which he laid the responsibility of bloodshed in Syria on the west and some regional countries, Minister al-Moallem said these statements come from a man with considerable experience who is well-informed of what is going on the Syrian, regional and internal arenas .
Al-Moallem described his talks with his Iranian counterpart as very productive, stressing that the viewpoints of the two countries were identical on the regional issues and the conspiracy hatched against Syria to serve the interests of Israel.
For his part, the Iranian Foreign Minister stressed that the Israel is behind what is going on in Syria and that some states are rushing madly against Syria to weaken its position and hinder its development.
Salehi pointed out that an international conspiracy is targeting Syria, saying that some sides are looking for pretexts and reasons for the developments and events in Syria, while he believes that the only reasons for these developments is that Israel is inciting against Syria.
Salehi added that the Syrian leadership has met most of the legitimate demands of the Syrian people.
He pointed out to the reformative laws issued by the Syrian government regarding political pluralism, elections and media laws, calling on all sides to give the Syrian leadership enough time to implement these reforms.
Salehi said „we are working to achieve security and stability in this region which is full of problems, and the wrong acts undertaken by some states prove that a conspiracy is targeting Syria … they naively believe that they can replace the government if they created vacuum in Syria, which is a naive misconception and they certainly should reconsider and pay attention to the internal situation in Syria and decide accordingly.“
He voiced certainty and confidence that the Syrian people will be victorious, as victory comes from righteousness.
