My column for this week was devoted to discussing the consequences of the ongoing war in Ukraine, its rapid developments and its political, economic and security consequences, as well as the possibilities of the dawn of a new world order, especially after the emergence of a the American-West insistence on prolonging the war against Russia, even if it would lead to the complete destruction of Ukraine and made millions of its people among the displaced in neighboring countries and as refugees.

However, the most important and prominent event that topped the political scene in the region and the region, is the unexpected visit of President Bashar al-Assad to Tehran and the symbolism of the warm reception that Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei gave to President al-Assad. , in the presence of the Iranian President and Foreign Ministers of the two countries, in addition to the presence of the Supreme Commander of the Revolutionary Guard, General Esmail Qaani.

There is no doubt that President al-Assad’s visit to Tehran at this particular time constitutes an extraordinary and very important event, especially after the escalation of resistance operations within the Palestinian territories against the Zionist enemy and in connection with the high frequency of threats. against the leaders of the resistance axis as a coherent unit, both in Palestine and in Lebanon and Yemen, in addition to the developments of the Russian military operation in Ukraine and its indications for the transition to the stage of placing points in the letters of a new world order.

President al-Assad’s visit to Tehran is of extraordinary importance and a historic moment compared to President al-Assad’s previous visits to Iran.

In the past, the visit took place in very difficult conditions of Syrian internal and economic security, in addition to its fierce fight against fierce terrorism, which destroyed several Syrian regions before the success of the Syrian Arab Army in liberating and regaining control over 90%. of Syrian territory.

As for President al-Assad’s visit to Tehran today, it coincides with a tangible change on the regional and international stage, which is now looking at Syria as a victorious country over terrorism and the US project aimed at dismantling, dispersing and relocating resistance communities. in the region.

With Syria’s determination and victory, the views of Arab and Western countries to change, accepting the defeat of the US-Zionist project in Syria, and they were fully convinced that the reality of Syria’s victory must be recognized and that it was able to overcome of dark conditions and the need to deal with it with a realism that transcends what preceded it, and to look for ways. The goal is to restore diplomatic and security relations with Assad’s Syria, given the importance of its geopolitical location in the region.

President al-Assad’s visit to Iran comes after a period similar to a visit to the United Arab Emirates, which at the time was seen as a strategic shift in Arab relations with Syria, and talks on Syria’s imminent resettlement in its headquarters in the Arab League, accompanied by a malicious campaign to distort the results of President al-Assad’s visit to the Emirates, sometimes talking about the UAE mediating to hold Syrian negotiations with the Zionist enemy over the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, and other times, the UAE urged Syria to abandon its strategic alliance with Iran, in exchange for sponsoring Syria’s reconstruction and facilitating its return to the Arab League.

President al-Assad, and from Tehran in particular, said: Restoring what the war has destroyed in Syria is easy and within Syrian capabilities, but if the foundations and principles are destroyed, it is very difficult to restore them. And Iran, as he unequivocally denied everything that was said about the existence of a dispute between Syria and Iran and was a statement that shocked all those who tried to drive a wedge between the two allies.

The information received indicates that a long and closed meeting between President al-Assad and Khamenei, in the presence of General Qaani, took place with the political and military developments in the region to develop a new strategy of confrontation, in light of increasing the forces of the axis of resistance, which is accompanied by high confidence in the readiness for any confrontation with the Zionist enemy, in addition to the developments of the Russian war in Ukraine, as well as to discuss scenarios of the next phase within and regional.

The second long meeting took place between the Syrian and Iranian presidents, in the presence of the accompanying delegation, which shows a close coordination at all economic and political levels and the translation of the transition of Syrian-Iranian relations, from bilateralism to a relationship that is made de facto strategic, even fatal, between the two countries, which means the completion and further consolidation of the path of victory.Syria, considering it the main center that could make the legendary stability a great loss for the American-Western project in Region.

President Assad, and from Tehran, considered that Iran’s approach to dealing with regional and international issues is not only in the interest of Iran and Syria, but is in the interest of the region and its liberation from American domination, thus contributing to its defeat. destructive projects.

On the other hand, Khamenei declared: “President al-Assad has kept his head above the peoples of the world more than ever before.” Now it is no longer what it used to be, as Syria’s position has become among the most influential and respected countries. , as an effective regional power with its special status, which qualifies it to play a leading and decisive role in the future of the region.

Iranian support for the resistance forces can not be spent only in the context of supporting armed resistance factions; however, political, economic and military support, as well as the bearing by Iran of all the burdens arising from this support, served the region and his peoples who wanted to free themselves from the continued domination of Western American colonialism, which led to the survival of its peoples at a low level of development, knowledge, and progress.

It should be noted that the visit of President al-Assad comes in the light of the rounds of the Iranian-Saudi negotiations, the positive results of which have not been felt so far. The visit also comes in connection with the failure to make any progress on Iran’s nuclear dossier. and the ongoing negotiations in Vienna, which means readiness to enter the region in a new turn, the consequences of which in the future can not be predicted, not only for Iran, but for the whole region and its allies, with Syria at the forefront of these countries.

The timing of Al-Assad’s visit to Tehran contributed to laying the foundations for the next confrontation and opening a new phase between the two countries, moving from normal bilateral relations to long-standing strategic relations, based on the determination to continue close cooperation. at all levels. .

After the visit, not as before, because it came at a time of accumulation of elements of force for the axis of resistance, and because it is a visit that will bring with it many surprises in any future confrontation, and it is expected that he will is adopted and translated soon, not at the level of relations between the two countries, but at the level of restoring balance in the region, restoring Syria For its pioneering role, as an important regional player for the formation of the strategic and qualified scene. to translate this role.
