The Jerusalem Post reports: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani expressed in a letter to Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday his country’s willingness to aid in the post-civil war reconstruction of Syria, Iran’s Tasnim news agency reported.

“We hope to swiftly witness the achievement of a final victory,” Rouhani continued. “Just as the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has stood beside the Syrian nation in its struggles and opposition to terrorism, we are also prepared to stand with you in every way possible as regards to Syria’s reconstruction.”
