President Bashar al-Assad received on Sunday a Lebanese delegation, headed by chairman of the Lebanese Democratic Party Talal Arslan, including clergymen, dignitaries of al-Muwahhidun sect, political and party figures, and Lebanese economic and social actors.
During the meeting, President al-Assad considered that the members of the delegation and the leaders that comprise it represent the true face of Lebanon, and represent the majority of the Lebanese who believe in the necessity and importance of the relationship with Syria ,as they were loyal to it and stood by it during the years of war.
President al-Assad noted that the relations between the two countries should not be affected by changes and circumstances, but should work to strengthen them, stressing that Syria will stand with the Lebanese people and support them at various levels.
President al-Assad pointed out that the leaders who possess correct and clear vision can, through the mutual relationship with the people, lead them to the correct goal and stability and protect them from the obstacles they face at different times, in light of the attempts to dismantle the social and national structures in the region.
His Excellency stressed that the battle that leaders must fight is the battle to protect minds from being targeted, which is to abolish identities and abandon them.
