Pres. Rouhani: US aggression in region has no result but destruction, annihilation

Pres. Rouhani: US aggression in region has no result but destruction, annihilation”

"Today we are witnessing how all worldwide principles are violated and certain states and their allies carry out airstrikes against Syria under false pretexts", Rouhani was quoted as saying on Saturday in a Farsi report by the president's website.

In a phone conversation with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Rouhani said, "This aggression was not just against the Syrian territory but against the whole region's stability".

The plots of enemies against the Iranian nation have always been foiled through people's persistence and wisdom, he said, adding: "This time, the enemies meant to disrupt the affairs in our country through economic plots but they were not successful and I appreciated unity and integrity of all powers, institutions and media in confronting the recent plots".

The strikes, which hit the capital Damascus as well as two locations near the city of Homs, came following a suspected chemical attack on the Syrian town of Douma last week.

"Without a doubt, the guidance of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution have helped the government", Dr Rouhani added.

Rouhani also said that presence of the foreign forces in Syria without Damascus' permission runs contrary to worldwide law.

He noted that no foreign country can decide about the future of Syria, saying that it is the Syrians who should decide for their country.

Seven Iranians were killed in an air strike on a Syrian military base on Monday, which Iran and Russian Federation said was carried out by the Zionist warplanes.

The Russian military said Saturday that the US, Britain and France fired 103 cruise missiles, including Tomahawk, at Syria but that Syrian air defense systems managed to intercept 71 of them.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the "unilateral" military aggression against Syria before the launch of an investigation into last week's alleged chemical attack near Damascus clearly showed that the United States was making up excuses to disturb the peace process in the region and support terrorists.

Iran's Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi expressed the country's readiness to dispatch medical aid to Syria if needed.

For his part, Assad praised Iran's support for Syria.
