Following the US aggression against Syria, Yemeni Prime Minister Habtoor said it was a violation against the sovereignty of the Arab country and it was an aggression against all Arab and Islamic nations. For that reason the Yemeni Prime Minister considered the US military attack a signal of the hostility of the current American administration that aims to destabilize the whole region. Moreover Habtoor expressed solidarity of the Yemeni leadership, government and people with Syria and expressed his condolences to the Syrian people for the victims of the US strike.
Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad appreciated Iran’s support for the Arab country. He thanked the Islamic Republic of Iran for its political and economic support for Syria that greatly helped the Syrian people in their resistance against terrorist groups. For his part, Boroujerdi, who is visiting Syria at the head of a parliamentary delegation, underlined that Iran will always remain on Syria’s side in the fight against terrorism as “the future of Syria is vital for regional stability.” The recent victory in Aleppo is so important for the stability in the area and Iran has remained a close ally of Syria and supports its legitimate government in the face of foreign-backed militancy.
