U.S. plans to establish domination over Syria - Ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that the United States plans to establish domination over Syria, but Iran will continue to support Damascus against foreign conspiracies, MNA reported.

Ahmadinejad made the remarks during a meeting with Faisal Meqdad, the Syrian deputy foreign minister who visited Tehran on Tuesday as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's special envoy, MNA reported.

"Today, it has become clear to everyone that the hegemons are seeking to deal a blow to Iran, Syria, and the line of resistance. And they intend to save the Israelis through chanting the slogan of advocating people's freedom and human rights," Ahmadinejad stated.

"Through chanting empty slogans of defending people's freedom, the Americans plan to establish domination over Syria, Lebanon, Iran, and all other countries, and we should be vigilant and strong in the face of their plots," he added.

The Iranian president also criticized the stance that the Arab League has adopted toward Syria, saying that certain Arab countries which have never held elections are advising the Syrian government to respect democracy.

"So far, the Arab League's credibility has been due to the membership of Syria in it," he said.

"Today, those who are setting policies in the region are the people whom the Westerners would have disdained if they had not had oil and wealth," Ahmadinejad commented.

Damascus has put up resistance against the Israel, he said, adding, "When the Persian Gulf Arab countries met with Syria's resistance, they got angry and began to oppose the country because they had planned to compromise with the Israel and provide it with money."

The crisis engulfing Syria is a plot hatched by the hegemonistic powers, Ahmadinejad stated.

"I am very glad that Syrian officials are properly handling the affairs with self-confidence and through reliance on the people, and I hope that the situation in Syria would improve day by day," he added.

Ahmadinejad went on to say that the Syrian president and other Syrian officials will definitely manage the developments in the country properly and will implement any necessary reforms.

And the enemies will be left empty-handed with the grace of God, he stated.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Ahmadinejad commented on the relations between Tehran and Damascus, saying that the Islamic Republic of Iran sees no obstacles in the way of the expansion of ties with Syria and will make every effort to support the country.

He added, "The Syrian people's enthusiastic presence on the scene has disturbed the enemies' equations and will definitely help improve the situation in the country."

Meqdad thanked the Islamic Republic for the stance it has adopted toward the developments in Syria and briefed Ahmadinejad on the measures that the Syrian government has taken so far to cooperate with the Arab League and the United Nations.

The enemies had assumed that they can overthrow the government through plunging the country into turmoil, he stated.

The situation in Syria is improving, Meqdad added.
