Damascus, SANA- Mrs. Asma al-Assad received on Tuesday Mrs. Anna Kuznetsova, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation and an accompanying delegation.
Kuznetsova is on an official visit to Syria in the framework of dialogue and continuous coordination between Syria and Russia on the official, parliamentary and social level.
Talks during the meeting dealt with the international disturbed situation and its impact on the Syrian and Russian societies.
Mrs. Asma considered that the modern war is a war that targets identity, culture, principles, values and beliefs, not only a military war, particularly as dominance on the coming generations and mentality of the youth is the deepest goal of the West.
“Immunizing the youth by preserving the concepts of family, society and ethics in the face of liberal modern concepts, represented by the breakup of everything valuable, is the most important target for the free peoples,” Mrs. Asma said.
She added “We are now in front of an opportunity for solidarity, intensifying efforts and exchanging expertise between Syria and Russia in the domains of culture, society and humanity, particularly as relations between the two countries are built on mutual respect and common principles.”
Mrs. Kuznetsova, for her part, affirmed that her visit to Syria comes to deepen the strongly and brotherly ties between the two states and as an extension to the circle of files that the two states would work in the parliamentary and cultural domains.
“Syria and Russia are struggling for the welfare and peace… and they are standing in one front… the basis of cooperation between the two states is friendship, dignity and the mutual confidence,” Kuznetsova added.
