Syria’s President Bashar Assad stressed the role played by the member states of the BRICS group in creating a sort of balance in the international relations, blocking the Western hegemony and in their attempts of meddling in other states’ domestic affairs.

The Syrian president made the remarks as he received Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of South Africa Nomaindia Mfeketo and the accompanying delegation, SANA reported.

Talks during the meeting focused on the developments in Syria, where Mfeketo expressed her country’s support for solving the crisis in Syria without any foreign interference and asserted the importance of halting support provided by some states to the armed terrorist groups.

She also stressed South Africa’s standing by the Syrian people in facing the terrorist groups.

Talks also dealt with the importance of the mutual benefiting from the experiences the two countries have gone through, as President Bashar Assad considered that benefiting from South Africa is very important on different levels because what had happened there years ago is taking place now in Syria even if it is manifested in a different way, noting that the West does not want partners but rather countries dependent on it.

The meeting also tackled the friendly relations binding Syria and South Africa, where the cooperation in the cultural and scientific domains, particularly in exchanging university student missions, was asserted in a way that helps the youth of the two countries create a clear vision of what is going on in the world as well as enabling them to perform an active role in building a bright future of their countries.

The meeting was attended by Presidential Political and Media Advisor Bouthaina Shaaban, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad, Director of Africa Department at the Foreign and Expatriate Ministry, Mohammad Khafif and the Syrian Ambassador in South Africa.
