Syrian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Jihad Al-Laham in a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Ali Larijani in New York praised Tehran’s tough position against extremist and terrorist groups in the region.

"The resistance movement will be victorious because it is based on ethical principles," Al-Laham said at the meeting on the sidelines of the Fourth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament on Tuesday.

Larijani, for his part, said Iran truly supports the government and people of Syria until the ground is prepared for dialog and peace.

Larijani warned that action needs to be taken against the militant groups in Syria, reiterating that allowing the terrorists to continue their combat against the Damascus government will not soothe the crisis in that country. "Even granting the key of the Middle East to the terrorists would not resolve the crisis in Syria."

The Fourth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament is held at United Nations Headquarters in New York from August 31 to September2, 2015. This summit of Speakers of Parliament from across the world is a unique forum for dialogue and cooperation between parliaments at the highest level. The overall theme of the Conference will focus on peace, democracy, and development seen through the parliamentary lens; FNA reported.
