Iranian President Raisi arrives in Syria for two-day visit


Iranian President, Ebrahim Raisi has embarked on a two-day official visit to Syria, accompanied by a delegation of political and economic officials.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad invited Raisi to Damascus, where he was welcomed by Syrian Economy Minister Mohammad Samer al-Khalil upon arrival at the airport.

The two leaders will hold meetings to discuss ways of strengthening bilateral ties and sign political and economic agreements.

“The importance of this trip, in addition to its political, security and economic dimensions, is the manifestation of the victory of the political will of the resistance.

“Also the success of the administration’s diplomacy in completing the regional convergence process,” Iran’s Foreign Minister, Amir Abdollahian, was quoted as saying by Iran’s IRNA news agency.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and Defense Minister Mohammadreza Ashtiani are among the officials accompanying Raisi on the trip.

Raisi expressed his belief that the Syrian government needed to be strengthened following the civil war that began in 2011, and that Iran’s stance of resistance had been proven effective.

He emphasized the importance of enhancing relations between Iran and Syria in the political, economic, and security areas, stating that such growth would benefit both nations and the region as a whole.

Iran has been a supporter of Assad’s government throughout the civil war.
