Iran: it’s a duty to back Syria

Iran reiterates its support for the Syrian government on Sunday, saying it’s Iran’s duty to do so.
The remark was made by Ali Akbar Velayati upon his arrival in Damascus.
As adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Velayati said it’s the West that have been inflicting the civil war on Syria.
But Tehran is determined to back Damascus on its fight against terrorism.
Though the United States and its allies do not see Bashar al Assad as Syria’s legitimate leader. They back the opposition and rebels which aim to oust him.
Yet Russia and Iran recognize Assad as the legitimate Syrian authority.
