President al-Assad congratulates Putin on winning presidential elections
President Bashar al-Assad sent a cable to Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulating him on winning the presidential elections with more than 70% of votes.
In the cable, President al-Assad said having this exceptional trust from the Russian people is a natural result of President Putin’s distinguished patriotic performance and serving the Russian Federation’s interests with the utmost competence and faithfulness, in addition to being a natural result of the cooperation between Russia and the countries of the world which share its positions and its belief in the sovereignty and independent decision-making of states.
His Excellency said that under President Putin’s leadership, the Russian Federation stood against terrorism in words and actions, contributing commendably with the Syrian Arab Army in vanquishing Takfiri terrorist forces in most of Syrian territories, which has rid other parts of the world of this blight.
President al-Assad said that President Putin was honest in his positions which leave no room for hypocrisy and ambiguity, asserting that Russia’s positions in international forums and circles reflect the pulse of your people and of all peoples that aspire to realizing justice among countries on the basis of equal dignity for all countries whether small or big, contrary to the forces of hegemony and colonialism that attach no importance to the dignity of countries and peoples.
