Velayati: Political, military balance in change in Assad’s interest


Head of the Strategic Research Center of the Expediency Council Ali Akbar Velayati underlined that Syria’s political conditions are changing in the interest of that country’s government and nation.

‘The political and military balance is changing in favor of the government, nation and allies of Syria,’ Velayati told reporters on Sunday.

He reiterated that Iran, Russia and Syria are following a single objective which is fighting against terrorism.

‘Positive results have arisen from this unity in theory and practice despite the fact that a complicated way is still ahead,’ Velayati added.

He said that the Iranian government is of the opinion that victory belongs to the Syrian government and nation, adding, ‘Given the legitimacy of the Syrian government and the country’s oppressed people, we are duty-bound to help them.’
