Syrian President Basher Assad, who met an Iranian parliamentary delegation in Damascus on Sunday, said Syria's crisis was the result of Western and regional states trying to crush the country's role in the "resistance" against Western and Israeli domination in the region.

"What is happening right now is not just a plot directed against Syria but the region as a whole, of which Syria is a foundational stone," he was cited as saying by state news agency SANA. "The Syrian people will not allow this plan to reach its goals, no matter the cost."
