Sheikh Naim Qassem, Deputy Secretary General of Lebanese Hezbollah Party, has underlined the importance of Syria’s return to the Arab League and the participation of President Bashar al-Assad in Jeddah Summit due to Syria’s key role in the region.
“If President Bashar al-Assad hadn’t gone to the Arab Summit, it would have been an ordinary summit and not of interest, and this means that the role and position of Syria and its presence and confronting conspiracies against it is a major role that cannot be dispensed with,” Qassem said during a party in Bekaa region on Saturday.
He added “All the conspiracies that have targeted Syria for 13 years with the aim to destroy it, and to change its political stance have completely failed and we are facing a new phase.”
Qassem continued, “We affirm once again that rights must always triumph, and we will always support the rights,” reaffirming that the resistance has proven once again that it can change the equation and impose its conditions in the region.
For his part, former Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs of Egypt, Ambassador Hussein Haridi, said that President Bashar al-Assad’s speech at the Arab Summit on Friday in Jeddah yesterday touched on Arab reality and highlighted the challenges facing the Arab nation.
“What President al-Assad put forward about the need to stop foreign interference in Arab affairs is unanimous among Arab leaders,” Haridi said in a statement to SANA correspondent in Cairo.
He pointed to the warm welcome that Syria received during its participation in the activities of the Arab Summit.
Haridi added, “There is a state of Arab optimism about the Syrian presence towards finding solutions to the crises the region is experiencing, away from foreign interference.”
