Damascus, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Bashar al-Jaafari said that the presidential elections entitlement is a sovereign Syrian affair, and no country has the right to interfere in it, stressing that holding elections as scheduled is a clear message to enemies of Syria that it will not yield to any pressure or blackmail.

Al-Jaafari, in an interview with the Iranian Tasnim News Agency, added that attempts of enemies to disrupt the presidential elections will not be able to undermine Syria’s independent decision and will not affect the faith and determination of its people in exercising their constitutional right and their national duty.

Al-Jaafari hailed support offered by friends of Syria to the country in its war on terrorism over the past ten years.
