DAMASCUS, (ST)- Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Faysal al-Mikdad has stressed that the Palestinian cause will continue to be Syria's main cause, despite the huge western pressure and the terrorist war targeting the country.

 On his part, Azzam reviewed the aggressive practices of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinians and their lands, including the policies of land annexation, settlement building and house demolition.

He affirmed the Palestinian people's support for the Syrian people, army and leadership, expressing hope that Syria will recover from terrorism as soon as possible, because "this will undoubtedly serve the interests of the Palestinian cause".
