On the eve of the visit he stressed the importance of solid relations between Damascus and Tehran especially in this hard time; he also noted that both countries had a common position rejecting the American war and supporting resolution 1441.

Diplomatic sources in the Syrian capital also emphasize that Damascus would host discussions of how to reach a peaceful implementation of resolution 1441 and the elimination of consequences of the American war for Iraq and the whole region.
