In turn, Fattouh conveyed the greetings of the Palestinians to Syria that has always been standing by Palestine and its cause.
Fattouh affirmed the importance of constant communication and coordination between Syria and Palestine and all States supporting the Palestinians cause and struggle to realize their rights and establish an independent State with Jerusalem as its capital.
