Parliament Speaker:

Damascus (IP) – Iran's Parliament Speaker said that the way to deal with the economic war is to increase relations between Islamic countries.

Iran PressMiddle East: In a meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad in Damascus, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf said: "After a decade of US-backed terrorists and the Israel regime's hard fighting against Syria and the Axis of Resistance, now the enemies have changed the battlefield and we are witnessing an economic war."

"In such a situation, the obstacles in front of traders, economic activists, craftsmen, and all private sector activists must be removed so that we can win the economic war by promoting trade relations," he added.

Referring to the Israel media propagations against Iran, Syria, and other countries of the resistance axis, he underlined that the only way to deal with this economic war is to increase ties between Islamic countries, especially the Axis of Resistance countries.

Faisal Mekdad also noted that the relations with the Islamic Republic are rooted in the hearts and souls of the Syrian people, and urged escalating relations between the two countries in all areas.

Noting that the Axis of Resistance in the region is getting stronger every day, he stressed that in such circumstances, trade and economic relations between the two countries should reach the highest possible level.

Iran's Ghalibaf visited Syria on the official invitation of the country to negotiate with senior Syrian officials on bilateral, regional, and international economic cooperation.
