Assad stresses importance of enhancing Syria-Iran relations

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad received Iranian Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi in Damascus today.

Assad said that enhancing economic cooperation between Syria and Iran and all the countries that insist on defending their sovereignty and independence is one of the most important ways to resist Western projects that are based on sanctions and coercive economic measures as a means of besieging peoples and restricting them to Western hegemony policies, SANA reported.

The meeting was also attended by Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade Mohammad Samer al-Khalil, who heads the Syrian side at the Syrian-Iranian Joint Ministerial Economic Committee, and Syrian Ambassador in Tehran Dr. Adnan Mahmoud.
