rm its firm support for the Syrian people, regardless of the challenges and conspiracies.

The Foreign Minister added that Syria is fighting alongside the Palestinian people and is being exposed to aggression from the United States of America and the Zionist entity because it stands with truth and justice and with the Palestinian people in their struggle.

try supports Syria’s sovereignty over all its lands and condemns the illegal presence of foreign forces, and also condemns the Israeli attacks on it.

According to the Iranian Ambassador, the priority in Iran’s foreign policy is to strengthen relations with its neighbors, respect their national sovereignty, and provide peace and stability in the region.

Akbari said that the conspiracies carried out by Zionism and the forces of arrogance recently to sow sedition and internal wars in Islamic and Arab countries are aimed at diverting public opinion from the Palestinian cause.
