During the meeting, Kassem confirmed that the Lebanese-Syrian relations "are not discretionary but stipulated in Taef agreement to be special".

"We thank Syria once again for its support to the Resistance, the Army and the people," he added.

Kassem also stressed the importance of "solidarity in face of the Israeli violations and the Zionistic-American project to occupy the region".
