Iranian Parliament Speaker Condemns Sanctions on Syria

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf denounced the latest round of American coercive economic measures against Syria, saying the new sanctions indicate Washington’s failure to push ahead with its military plots against the Arab country. “Enemies of Syria, Iran and the resistance axis were desperate because of their failure in their terrorist and military war against Syria, so they moved to impose economic and coercive unilateral sanctions, and this is evidence to their failure in their plots,” Iranian Parliament Speaker said on Monday in a meeting with Syrian Ambassador to Iran Adnan Mahmoud, SANA reported. Syria has always been and will remain on the front line of the resistance axis, he added, reaffirming Iran’s continued support for the Arab country.
