BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:35 A.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and the Chairman of Iran’s Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security Alaa’eddine Boroujerdi discussed the recent independence referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan during a meeting in Damascus on Thursday.

During the meeting, the Syrian President rejected any attempt by the regime in Iraqi Kurdistan to “undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Iraq.”

Furthermore, both parties stressed that confronting the dangers facing the countries of the region, especially the threat of terrorism, requires the consolidation of the factors of unity and harmony among all the components of the region’s peoples, according to the Syrian agency.

President Assad affirmed the importance of strengthening political action in order to fortify the position of the axis fighting against terrorism in order to stand up against the other axis which seeks to spread chaos and terrorism in a bid to carry out its scheme.

For his part, Boroujerdi hailed the victories achieved by the Syrian Army and its allies, adding such victories represent the beginning of the demise of the terrorist organizations. He noted that the terrorist groups are used as “a spearhead to impose the projects of the West and Zionist entity at the expense of the interests and future of the Syrian people and the peoples of the region.”

Bourojerdi and the accompanied delegation also affirmed Iran’s determination to continue supporting Syria not only in its war against terrorism, but also in its battle for reconstruction, saying Tehran is ready to do everything in this regard through expanding the prospects of economic cooperation in various fields to serve the interests of the two brotherly peoples.

East Exon Barsani-Oilistan will go to get independence. I am afraid. They may prevent that for YPD East-Oilistan. No more.
