This morning, Salem al-Meslet said that the latest remarks made by the head of the Iranian regime on Syria represent “flagrant defiance of the international community’s efforts aimed at finding a political solution to the conflict in Syria. Rouhani’s remarks reveal “political blindness and utmost contempt for the aspirations of the Syrian people and their suffering under oppression, murder and atrocities practiced by the Assad regime,” Meslet added.
He also said that Rouhani’s remarks “are part of his country’s strategic unwavering support for the Assad regime.” Rouhani confirmed yesterday the continuation of military support provided by his regime for Assad to ensure his survival in power.
Meslet points out that Iranian support for the Assad regime is not limited to lying and political hypocrisy, but involves taking part in the planning and executing of terrorist attacks against the Syrian people.
“Rouhani’s remarks prove once again that the Iranian position on finding a political solution to the Syrian conflict is nothing more than an explicit denial of reality and the right of the Syrian people to revolt to regain freedom and dignity. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
