BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – Iranian Vice President Ishaq Jahangiri stated on Thursday that the assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani did not change the Islamic Republic’s pro-Syrian policies.

According to the Fars News Agency, Jahangiri’s comments came during his first phone call with the new Syrian Prime Minister Hussein Arnous on Thursday.

“Iran will not hesitate to take any action to ease the pressures imposed on Syria,” Jahangiri told Arnous .

He added, “The assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani has not brought about any change in Iran’s pro-Syrian policies.”

The Syrian Prime Minister Hussein Arnous had discussed with the advisor of the first vice president of Iran and the head of the Iranian Economic Relations Development Committee with Syria and Iraq, Hassan Dinai, the necessary steps to strengthen economic cooperation in the face of U.S. sanctions.

It should be mentioned that the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that the first package of U.S. measures against Syria in implementation of the so-called ” Caesar Law ” reveals “the American administration’s violation of all international laws and norms.”

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi also expressed his country’s condemnation of the development and implementation of the Caesar Law against Syria, considering the U.S. law “in violation of international laws and humanitarian principles.”
