Prime Minister, Dr. Wael al-Halqi said

“Western countries and Arab regimes backing terrorists will pay a heavy price for their support to terrorist groups who are shedding the blood of the Syrians”.

During his meeting with an Australian solidarity delegation currently in Syria, al-Halqi pointed to the importance of such visits to convey the reality of what the Syrian people have been facing, hoping that the delegation will convey the true image as they experienced it first-hand to the public opinion.

Premier al-Halqi highlighted the political, military, ideological and economic dimensions of the war waged against Syria due to its support to resistance, indicating that Syria remains committed to its support to the Palestinian cause and its right to restore the occupied Golan.

The Syrian army is fighting terrorists coming from 83 countries, indoctrinated with extreme views that preach killing and violence, the Prime Minister affirmed.

He stressed that the Syrian economy has proved its resilience in the war that has targeted all its components, despite systematic sabotage of infrastructure, schools, universities and factories that have all failed to break the will of the Syrian people.

The delegation members, for their part, expressed regret over the participation of Australian citizens alongside the armed terrorist groups in Syria, affirming that they are determined to convey the reality of what they saw in Syria and the normal life they witnessed in Damascus.
