Full support to and solidarity with Syrian people

Syria had been “prey” for big powers for hundreds of years as it is situated at a point of strategic importance in the Middle East. The colonial subordination which began in the middle ages had shackled the whole territory of Syria even after the end of World War II.

Thanks to the undaunted resistance of the Syrian people, foreign aggression forces withdrew in April 1946 and Syria achieved independence.

The Syrian people splendidly celebrate April 17 as a national holiday.

It is 75 years since foreign aggression forces were withdrawn from Syria, but enormous difficulties and obstacles still remain in the way of its people.

They are shedding blood even at the moment due to the vicious schemes of the hostile forces and reactionary forces at home and the reckless military attack of Israel, which seeks hegemony in the Middle East.

Last year alone the Israeli army made 39 rounds of air raids on Syria, killing about 220 people. On January 22 this year it carried out a missile attack on Hama province of Syria, killing four civilians including children.

The international community provides active support to the Syrian people.

The Iranian foreign minister at an event in February said his country would offer assistance to Syria continuously in various fields and express support to the efforts to ensure security and stability in Syria including the anti-terror war.

Russia also voiced full support to the independent and just struggle of Syria, a sovereign state and UN member nation, in the joint statement published with Syria in March, saying all the measures taken by the Western countries have nothing to do with the war on terror in Syria.

The Korean people will continue to side with the Syrian people in their efforts to achieve the country’s stability and build a peaceful and prospering state.
