President Ahmadinejad in Damascus, Syria

Nasrallah, Assad and Ahmadinejad meet in Damascus

President Ahmadinejad delivered a speech while visiting President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus. This is part of what he had to say:

“The news indicates that they (the Israelis) are about to repeat their past mistakes. President Assad and I know it, the Syrian and Iranian people as well as the other people of our region know it, … if The Zionist entity wants to repeat its mistakes once again [go to war] such a move will lead to its inevitable demise. This time all the people of the region, particularly the people of Syria, Iran, Lebanon and Iraq, and all others will stand against this entity” -President Ahmadinejad

According to Professor Joshua Landis @ Syria Comment: "Interestingly, Lebanon and Iraq are singled out as members of the resistance front. Ahmadinejad is promising that Iraq will be among the nations that will respond to Israeli aggression."

During President Ahmadinejad's visit with President Bashar al-Assad, it was formally agreed to waive visa requirements between Iranian and Syrian citizens.
