Western aggression only strengthens Syrian resolve to defend sovereignty – Assad

The US, UK and French missile strikes on Syria earlier in April will “only increase the Syrians’ determination to eliminate terrorism in all its forms, and uphold their sovereignty and their right to shape their own future,” Syrian President Bashar Assad said, as he accepted a top Iranian MP in Damascus. During the talks, the two sides confirmed the joint will of Syria and Iran to continue to strengthen strategic relations between the allies, Syrian SANA news agency reported. On Sunday, Syrian military bases in the country’s Hama and Aleppo Provinces were reportedly hit by missiles launched by an unidentified party.
