The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the Venezuelan people and Government, congratulates the Syrian people for the exemplary democratic day celebrated yesterday, May 26, 2021, which resulted in the significant and unquestionable triumph of the brother President of the Syrian Arab Republic, Bashar Al Assad.
It is the victory of peace and national sovereignty over the cruel war imposed against the brotherly Syrian people, which, under the leadership of President Al Assad, has resisted with admirable dignity and patriotism the attacks and ambition of the imperialist forces and terrorist groups that tried to defeat him, without success.
Neither the war, nor the economic aggression through inhumane and illegal sanctions, nor the health crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemic, prevented such an impressive popular triumph from taking place. The massive electoral participation constitutes a strong message of popular rejection of the alleged agendas of the imperial powers.
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reiterates its firm support for the sister Arab nation and its willingness to deepen and expand bilateral cooperation to contribute to the mutual welfare of both peoples and the consolidation of sovereignty and self-determination in both nations.
