Ahmadinejad to visit Syria on Thursday


An anonymous diplomatic source told Syrian newspaper Al-Watan in an interview published on Monday that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will head to Damascus on Thursday on a one-day visit to meet with his Syrian counterpart, Bashar al-Assad.

The source added that the visit confirms the continuous coordination between the Syrian and Iranian leaderships.

Another unnamed source told the daily that the trip is in line with Ahmadinejad’s statements issued last week during which he reiterated Tehran’s support for Syria and Lebanon, as well as for all resistance movements fighting Israel. (Now Lebanon)
