The Patriotic Party Delegation led by Chairman Doğu Perinçek met with Syrian President Bashar Assad for the purpose of discussing the topics such as developing economic cooperation and solidarity between the two countries and ceasing ethnic and religious conflicts and terrorism in the region.
The two leaders are discussing about building a resistance front against the imperialist agression in the middle east and the independence of Turkey and Syria.
Syrian President Bashar Assad said in his speech that Turkish delegation's visit to Syria in such a difficult period gave a great brotherhood message to the Arab world and entire world public opinion.
President Assad said, "Today, I'm verry happy for your visit. We did not have any coordination with any Turkish delegation for two years. Actually they did not come to visit us. Your visit in such a difficult period is a significant step. Some of us had began to think that Turkey became an hostile country. However, your visit gave the message to the entire world that Turks and Arabs are brothers forever. Turkey's seperation is no doubt Syria's seperation."
President Assad described Turkey and Syria as the heart of the world. "The Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Gulf is the heart of the world. But we need strong personalities to manage this region. We cannot work with closed-minded people. How can a visionless guy who is not even representing all of Turkish society can lead such a project around the world," President Assad said in his meeting with the Patriotic Party delegation led by Doğu Perinçek.
The Chairman of the Patriotic Party Doğu Perinçek said in his speech, "Thank you very much Mr. President. We've been looking forward to this meeting with a great enthusiasm. We also offer respect for Mrs. Asma Assad. Turkish people love her as the symbol of the modern women
The Patriotic Party delegation and Syrian officials reached a consensus on collaborating in security, economical, social and cultural issues in their two-hour meeting.
