Gen. Ali Mahmoud Abbas made the remark in an address to the Moscow International Security Conference, adding that the conference is of urgent importance to confront projects of hegemony and colonialism.

“The doors of Syria are always open to everyone who comes as a friend while those who target our land, our history, and our future with aggression and destruction, they will find before them people who reject humiliation and make every sacrifice for the sake of the dignity of their homeland,” he stated.

The general added, “We call on the international community to exert pressure to lift the unjust coercive measures imposed on Syria by the United States and some Western regimes.

“We stress the necessity of ending the American and Turkish occupation of parts of the Syrian territories in order to extend the state’s control over them and to be able to invest their national resources that are subject to looting and theft,” he went on to say.
