Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says despite suffering from foreign-sponsored terrorism for the past seven years، his country is moving steadily towards victory، a day after the Russian military announced that government troops were in control of 85 percent of the whole Syrian territory.
The Syrian leader made the remarks in a meeting with the participant in the third International Trade Union Conference (ITUC)، which was held in the capital Damascus with the participation of organizations from some 60 countries.
The conference kicked off at Sahara Tourist Complex in the Damascus countryside on Monday with the aim of discussing ways of solidarity with the Syrian nation despite persisting militancy in the country and the economic blockade imposed by the West and its impact on the Syrian people.
President Assad further stressed the important role of popular organizations and social groups in raising awareness about the realities of the Syrian crisis among the international community and the dangers of terrorism، which is spreading across the globe.
He also denounced the “immoral economic embargo” imposed against his country by “certain superpowers” that seek to control other nations، saying the sanctions are in blatant violation of international and humanitarian laws. -PressTV
