BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad received his Sudanese counterpart Omar Al-Bashir at Damascus International Airport on Sunday.
Following the arrival of Al-Bashir, the two presidents headed to the People’s Palace, where they held a session talks on bilateral relations and developments in Syria and the region.
During the talks, President Al-Assad and President Al-Bashir affirmed that the circumstances and crises affecting several Arab countries require finding new approaches for Arab action that are based on respecting the sovereignty of states and non-interference in their internal affairs.
The Presidents said that what is happening in the region, and particularly in Arab countries, requires investing all energies and efforts in serving Arab causes and confronting the plots that contradict the interests of the countries’ regions and peoples.
President Al-Bashir said that weakening Syria means weakening Arab causes, and what happened inside the country during the past years cannot be separated from this reality, adding that despite the war, Syria continues to adhere to the standards of the Arab nations.
He voiced hope that Syria will recover its vitality and role in the region as soon as possible, and that its people will be able to decide the country’s future themselves without any foreign interference, affirming that Sudan supports Syria and its security.
