PARIS (AFP*) – The head of the Syrian opposition , Ahmad Jarba, lent his support to the President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran ( NCRI opposition in exile), Maryam Rajavi, at a meeting in Paris, according to the NCRI.

During this meeting, which occurred Friday Ahmad Jarba, the head of the Syrian opposition, who was visiting France, “welcomed the solidarity and fraternity between the Iranian Resistance Iran and the Syrian revolution,” according to a statement of the NCRI.

“We’re in the same camp as the Iranian people; we are fighting against a common enemy to achieve a common goal. Mullahs ruling Iran enjoy no legitimacy. The fate of the Syrian people and the Syrian revolution is bound with the fate of the Iranian people and their legitimate representative, namely the Iranian Resistance led by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi,” said Mr. Jarba, according to the statement.

Mrs. Rajavi condemned the “total support” provided by the Iranian government to the regime of Bashar al- Assad and his policy of repression, according to the NCRI.

“At this meeting  it was stressed that the military, logistics management, and deployment of combat forces by the thousands is under the command of the Quds force of the Revolutionary Guards ” (The elite Iranian forces), said Afshin Alavi, of the NCRI.

Shiite Iran is one of the key allies of Syrian President Bashar al- Assad in his fight – which has lasted three years – against the majority Sunni rebels seeking to overthrow it.

Tehran strongly denies that its troops involved in the fighting in Syria, but acknowledges the presence of military advisers. The Hezbollah, very close to Tehran, has however acknowledged fighting alongside the soldiers of the Syrian army.

According to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights (SOHR) , more than 162,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began in March 2011.
