Syria: developing ties with Iran key to resist western plots


( MENAFN ) Syrian President Bashar al-Assad demanded deepening ties with Iran, especially in fighting the plots hatched by the foreign countries and also in the economic sector.

"The development of economic cooperation with Iran and all the countries that insist on defending their sovereignty and independence is one of the most important ways to confront Western plots," President Assad said in a meeting with Iranian Road and Urban Development Minister Abbas Akhoundi in Damascus on Friday.

"The Western powers are resorting to sanctions and coercive economic measures as a means to impose restrictions on nations and obliging them to bow to their hegemonic policies," President Assad said.

For his part, Akhoundi, congratulated the Syrian president and people on the continuous achievements made by the Arab country's Army and its allies in the fight against terrorism.
