TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Former Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi gave a lecture titled "Iranian Foreign Policy" at the National Library of Damascus, during which he emphasized the great role of Iran and Saudi Arabia in the region.
In the seminar attended by ambassadors and political, cultural, and religious figures, Kharrazi emphasized that Iran and Saudi Arabia cannot remove each other.
"The Islamic Republic of Iran considers the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia a great country in the region and influential in the Islamic world, and Iran or Saudi Arabia cannot delete each other," he said, according to SANA news agency.
Kharrazi also stated that the United States' successive failures in the Middle East were due to its lack of understanding of the region's culture and history and its underestimation of peoples' resistance.
"The continuous and successive failure of the United States is due to its lack of knowledge of the Middle East region and its cultural heritage, as well as underestimating the ability of peoples to resist," former Iranian top diplomat said during his lecture.
“the joint Iranian-Syrian experience shows that one of the most important components of power in our world is the ability to resist against the global hegemonic system and to confront the policies of arrogant and greedy powers."
Additionally, Imad Mustafa, Director of the Diplomatic Institute at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, noted that Syria and Iran's shared support for Palestine was a point of convergence.
