|Syria is the red line of resistance: Iranian general||
TEHRAN -- Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has said that Syria is the red line of the resistance movement against the Zionist regime.
Jazayeri made the remarks during an interview with the Persian service of the Mehr News Agency published on Wednesday when asked about his view about discussing developments in Syria during the XVI Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement, which is scheduled to be held in Tehran from August 26 to 31.
Jazayeri stated, “The Syrian issue is a very important issue, and (Syria) is regarded as the red line of the resistance. Therefore, any negotiation about it should be held within the framework of the interests of the resistance and the Syrian people, who are being targeted by terrorists, the hegemonistic governments and regimes, and (the governments that) are subservient to the West.
“The hegemonistic bloc is openly and impudently taking subversive and terrorist actions against the Syrian nation and government. Given this, freedom-seeking countries should seriously support Syria against its enemies.
“It should be noted that the psychological operations of the Western bloc and Syria’s subservient neighbors against the Syrian government and people are (being carried out) in such a way to portray themselves as the winner of this war, while circumstantial evidence indicates a victory of the Syrian government and people.
“This great victory will be fondly remembered in future history. (And) of course, media outlets in the Islamic Republic of Iran should pay special attention to this important issue and prevent other countries from being influenced by the suggestions and the media psychological operations of the enemy.
“The enemy is seeking to declare Syria the loser and the countries supporting Syria sure losers, and this can definitely affect the extent to which and the way the… country of Syria is being supported. Hence, this great lie should be exposed so that the world will know about the defeat of the United States and global Zionism and reactionaryism in the region at the hands of Syria’s resistance.
“Therefore, no passivity should emerge at the summit of the Non-Aligned (Movement) in regard to the governments supporting terrorism because these countries are the allies of the United States and must be held accountable for the killing of human beings and the destruction of Syrian cities.”
