BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad expressed his gratitude towards Russia, Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah for their military and economic support at the opening of the Conference of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, in Damascus, Sunday.

Referring to the ongoing Syrian civil war, Assad was optimistic. He said that Syria and its allies had been achieving “one feat after another over the days and weeks,” despite the fact that they were fighting against “the fiercest terroristic organizations supported by the strongest and richest countries in the world.”

He went on to express his gratitude towards Syria’s allies who have provided military, economic and political support to the country during the ongoing multi-sided conflict. He hailed Syria’s allies as a “significant part of the achievements” in the country’s war against the western-backed opposition and rival factions.

In regards to Russia, Assad said it had contributed to protecting the sovereignty of Syria and had “never stopped supporting the Syrian army or offering whatever it needs for it to carry out its tasks in combating terrorism.”
