The regime’s media talked about a Syrian-Iraqi-Iranian economic bloc
On the second day of Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi’s visit to Syria, he met a delegation from the Palestinian factions present in Damascus, in the presence of Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian.
Raisi stressed, during the meeting that was held in the Syrian presidential palace yesterday (Thursday), that his country “always considers the Palestinian issue a priority in its foreign policy.” He stressed that “resistance is the only way for the Islamic world to advance and confront the Israeli occupation,” and that “the initiative, today, is in the hands of the mujahideen and Palestinian fighters in the arena of confrontation.” He said, “We see the demise of the Zionist entity very soon, whose effects are visible.”
Raisi visited, on Wednesday evening, the shrine of Sayyidah Zainab, in the countryside of Damascus, and delivered a speech in the courtyard of the shrine, in a popular and official ceremony, after he met a group of families of the dead Shiite militias from the countries of Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iran and others.
Sources of the Syrian regime shed light on the economic dimension of the visit, as the official Tishreen newspaper called, in an editorial yesterday, to “review the scene again,” describing Raisi’s visit to Damascus as an “event.” And it stated that its extensive data “summarizes the integrated vision to move towards creating balances of power that impose itself, and that Syria, then Iraq and Iran, are the solid foundations of a regional bloc that complements the broader dimension of the emerging new pole with its economic identity, which is based on political consensus in the approach of peace and harmony, in that the economic blocs Regionalism will be the real strategic choice, ”noting that today, realism “dictates the recognition that the economy leads politics.”
Tishreen, the spokeswoman for the regime in Damascus, considered the meetings of the Syrian-Iraqi Supreme Committee in Damascus, which took place two days ago, and the meetings of the Syrian-Iranian committee, “reassuring beginnings for the birth of a cohesive, integrated economic region interconnected by the flowing arteries of economic life.”
