Syria is taking part in the forum with a parliamentary delegation headed by Dr. Abdul-Salam al-Dahmoush, member of the People’s Assembly.

The MP said in a speech that the Syrian people highly appreciates the stances of the friendly people of Russia in support of Syria through the crisis, support he said “is not uncharacteristic of Russia which has long fought for its sovereignty.”


He applauded the deep Syrian-Russian relations that he described as unbreakable, noting that Syria is in the grip of a fierce war in which terrorists from as many as 80 countries are fighting the Syrian army and people.

“What Syria has been facing over three years is a terrorist war that targets the human and social values of the Syrian people, damaging infrastructure and service institutions, a war financed admittedly by Western and Arab states,” he said.

He called for setting binding frameworks for all countries and governments based on respect for international law, the sovereignty of nations and the non-interference in their internal affairs.

Speaking to SANA reporter in Moscow, Russian officials condemned the terrorist acts rocking the Syrian cities and towns, saying that a primary goal of the forum is to lobby parliamentarians round the world to support Syria in its battle against terrorism.
