Syrian PM: Syria's success to follow Iran nuclear deal
Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi says Iran's success in working out a nuclear deal with the six world powers will be followed by the victory of the Syrian nation in the course of the crisis in the Arab country, PressTV reported.
Speaking to reporters upon his arrival at Tehran Mehrabad International Airport on Friday afternoon, Halqi expressed confidence that Iran's success in its nuclear dossier will lead to further victories in the region, including the triumph of the Syrian nation.
The Syrian prime minister noted that his trip to Tehran is mainly aimed at conveying Syria's congratulations to Iran over the achievement of the Islamic Republic's nuclear deal.
Iran and the six major world powers sealed an interim deal in Geneva on Sunday morning to pave the way for the full resolution of the West's decade-old dispute with Iran over the country's nuclear energy program.
In exchange for Iran agreeing to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the United States and its allies have agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against the country.
Halqi expressed gratitude to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and the Iranian nation over their support for Syria, and noted that the Syrian nation will soon celebrate its great victory in Damascus, representing the triumph of the resistance movement.
From the outset of the crisis in Syria in March 2011, Iran has been urging a diplomatic solution to the conflict and has strongly opposed any foreign intervention and the militancy in the Arab country.
Over the past months, the Syrian army has managed to inflict major losses on militant groups. The army has also conducted successful clean-up operations against the foreign-sponsored terrorists across the country.
