Countries hostile to Syria defend terrorists - Assad

Syria's President Bashar al-Assad said on Sunday during a meeting with Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani that states hostile to Syria are still defending terrorists, despite them hiding behind civilians.

"Countries hostile towards Syria continue defending terrorists that use civilians as live shields," Assad's press service stated after the bilateral meeting.

Earlier in the day, Larijani insisted that the latest events in Syria showed that the Axis of Resistance, a political alliance between Iran and the Syrian government, is pursuing good objectives.
