Mr. Velayati underlined that the recent gains proved that war on terrorism and extremism can achieve accomplishments without the support of the US and the West.
“Certainly, the Syria of today under the leadership of its president is much stronger than the start of these atrocities and divisions,” reiterated the top foreign affairs’ advisor of Iran’s Leader, “the pro-terrorists states who advocate extremism along with their regional allies like the Zionist regime, are no longer a threat for this resistant people and government.”
