No Place for Occupiers in Syria: Iran’s President

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Reaffirming Iran’s support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi urged that all occupiers must leave the Arab country.

In a message to his Syrian counterpart on Monday, Raisi congratulated the Syrian Arab Republic on its national day.

"I am confident that by using the many capacities and abilities of the two countries, we can take valuable steps towards developing relations in an all-round way and also establish a foundation for regional cooperation and expansion of peace, stability and development in the region in all fields,” the Iranian president added, according to his official website.

"As in the past, the Islamic Republic of Iran will stand by the government and nation of Syria as a friend and brother and always supports the independence and territorial sovereignty of Syria and emphasizes the withdrawal of the occupiers from Syria,” he noted.

The primary national holiday in Syria is Independence Day, celebrated on April 17, which commemorates the evacuation of the last French troops in Syria, officially ending the French Mandate for Syria.
