President al-Assad to Catholicos Aram I: Terrorist war made Syrians more steadfast and committed to their identity and civilization
President Bashar al-Assad received on Wednesday Catholicos of the Holy See of Cilicia of the Armenian Apostolic Church, His Holiness Catholicos Aram I Keshishian, and the accompanying delegation.
During the meeting, Catholicos Aram I offered congratulations to President al-Assad and the Syrian people over the liberation of Aleppo city after years of suffering from crimes committed by terrorists.
His Holiness offered his sincerest hopes and prayers for the liberation of the entirety of Syria from terrorism so that peace and security would prevail in Syria as soon as possible.
For his part, President al-Assad affirmed that the terrorist war that has been targeting Syria and the entirety of the Syrian people for years has failed in achieving one of its most dangerous goals which is undermining the Syrian people’s unity and harmony, asserting that this war has made Syrians more steadfast and more determined to remaining committed to their identity and civilization which is based on diversity and plurality, something what has been a defining attribute of Syrians’ history throughout centuries.
