Iran PressMiddle East: Kamal Kharrazi, former Iran Foreign Minister and Head of Iran's Strategic Council on Foreign Relations arrived in Damascus on Sunday to meet with senior Syrian officials.

Abbas Araghchi, the secretary of Iran's Strategic Council on Foreign Relations accompanies him on the trip.

“The reason behind US continuous and successive failure is its lack of knowledge of the Middle East and its cultural heritage along with its underestimation of peoples’ ability to resist,” Kamal Kharrazi said.

Iran considers the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to be an important country in the region and influential in the Islamic world, Kharrazi noted, adding that neither Iran nor Saudi Arabia can exclude each other.

"The joint Iranian-Syrian experience shows that the most significant component of power in our world is the ability to resist in front of the scheme of global hegemony and to confront the policies of the arrogant and greedy practiced by world powers," Kharrazi stressed.

The director of the Diplomatic Institute at the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry, Imad Mustafa, said that the joint meeting point between Syria and Iran is to support Palestine and stand by it.
