Syria And Iran Alliance


Recommended Posts

According to the Indian Express...


Iran and Syria, both locked in rows with the United States, said on Wednesday they would form a common front to face challenges and threats.


‘‘We are ready to help Syria on all grounds to confront threats,’’ Iranian Vice-President Mohammad Reza Aref said in Tehran after meeting Syrian Prime Minister Naji al-Otari.Otari told reporters: ‘‘This meeting, which takes place at this sensitive time, is important, especially because Syria and Iran face several challenges and it is necessary to build a common front’’.


Syria’s ambassador to the US stressed that it was not an anti-American alliance and said Syria was trying to improve its relations with Washington.


‘‘Today we do not want to form a front against anybody, particularly not against the United States,’’ Imad Moustapha said. ‘‘Syria is trying to engage constructively with the US... We are not the enemies of the US, and we do not want to be drawn into such an enmity,’’ he added.


Washington recalled its ambassador to Syria for urgent consultations on Tuesday to show its deep displeasure with Damascus after Monday’s killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri.


Russia said on Wednesday said it will sell a new air defence missile system to Syria, overriding Israeli concerns, but insisted the weaponry was only for close-range use and would not upset the balance of military force in West Asia

The Arab League chief said Syria will "soon" take steps to withdraw its army from Lebanese areas in accordance with a 1989 agreement, but it was not clear whether that meant Syria would completely leave Lebanon as demanded by the international community.

Hell yeah. why shouldnt they make this alliance? It seems like the USA wants to conquer the world and take the oil. USA is taking part of every war. What the f*** are they thinking! " There are some nuclear weapons in Iraq". None were found. The first political department they attacked was oil department. There were seven departments and USA gave back six, except oil.... and the bombs they are using are made by uranium. This means some Iraqi children might have high radiation dose when they born.
