Damascus, (SANA)- Speaker of the People’s Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham said those who call themselves an opposition and the tools implementing the conspiracy against Syria are rejecting the political solution and going for the ballot boxes because they do not have a popular base.


During a meeting on Thursday with a Brazilian delegation including party, cultural, media and human rights figures, al-Laham said those sides are seeking support of the colonialist countries and encouraging aggression on Syria as they aim to make personal gains at the expense of the homeland and the Syrian people.

He stressed that Syria’s steadfastness in the face of the conspiracy has been bolstered by the culture of co-existence among its social spectra and it having its own national independent decision.

The Speaker added that the fact that the Syrian army reflects the diversity of the Syrian society that is opposed to terrorism and extremism has supplied it with extra power to face the takfiri terrorist mercenary groups which come from over 80 countries from all over the world.

He slammed the Saudi regime which he said is the hub of world terrorism and extremist thinking for supplying the terrorists in Syria with funds in coordination with the U.S. administration.

While lashing out at the Saudi support for terrorist groups, al-Laham hailed the role of the BRICS countries, which include Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, in standing by the Syrian people and resisting world imperialism.

For their part, the Brazilian delegation members considered that the Syrian people’s struggle against and victory over imperialism is a victory for all the peoples who fight for freedom all over the world.

They expressed the Brazilian government and political forces’ rejection of foreign interference in the Syrian issue, stressing the Syrians’ right to solve their problems by themselves.

The delegation handed the logo of the Brazilian Workers Confederation to the People’s Assembly Speaker in expression of their appreciation of the Syrian parliamentary institution in backing the issues of workers.
