Iraqi National Security Advisor Discusses Cooperation with Syria’s Assad
Iraqi Security Advisor Falih Fayyadh visited Damascus on Sunday where he met with Syrian regime president Bashar al-Assad to discuss joint efforts in combatting terrorism and closer cooperation to encounter the ongoing challenges.
Assad stressed that both Baghdad and Damascus had to remain independent in making decision and survive the current crisis.
“Events at the regional and international levels require that Syria and Iraq move forward in protecting their sovereignty and independence of their decisions in view of the plans weaved by external enemies on a divide and wreaking havoc” Sputnik quoted Assad.
He noted that, regardless of the challenges and their complexities, it is ultimately at the hands of the people of Iraq and Syria to decide on the fate of their countries. Source
