Syria is at the forefront of resistance axis in the fight against terrorism and Zionism

Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency - Faisal Mekdad the Syrian Deputy-Foreign Minister and former Permanent Envoy to the United Nations has come to Iran and had a joint meeting with Ali Larijani the Iranian parliament's speaker.

Iranian Parliament speaker after Mohammad Jawad Zarif Khansari and Ali Akbar Velayati met with the Syrian official in the Islamic Consultative Assembly on Monday. Ali Larijani said Tehran and Damascus must improve economic and regional cooperation and added that the Islamic Republic would undoubtedly continue its support for Syria.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran’s policy is to fight terrorism and establish security in the region" Larijani said in a meeting with Mekdad on Monday.

Syria and Iran are strategic allies. Syria is usually called Iran's closest ally.

Iran and Syria have had a strategic alliance ever since the Iran–Iraq War, when Syria sided with non-Arab Iran against its fellow Baath-ruled neighbor but enemy Iraq and was isolated by some Arab countries.

The two countries shared a common animosity towards the late Iraqi president Saddam Hussein and coordination against the United States and Israel.

Larijani added that some regional countries and global powers are responsible for the ongoing crisis in Syria, saying, "The US and its regional allies have created numerous problems in the region".

In 2003, Mekdad became the Permanent Representative of Syria to the United Nations, a position he held until 2006, when he was appointed as Deputy-Foreign Minister.

The Syrian deputy foreign minister, for his part, said countries in the Muslim world and across the region must make comprehensive efforts and boost their unity to counter terrorist groups.
