Syrian community in Cuba, Sweden and Slovakia commemorates Independence Day

The Syrian Community and students in Cuba have affirmed that the steadfastness of the Syrians have thwarted all conspiracies targeting Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity

“The struggle for independence in the past and confronting the war and global terrorism imposed on Syria today is one battle, as in the past the Syrians struggled for independence and today they are confronting a terrorist, economic and military war targeting all Syrian people,” the Syrian community said in a statement on the 77th anniversary of Independence Day.

The developments taking place in the region and the whole world, especially the new Arab and international stance towards Syria, confirm the right of Syria to defend its land and sovereignty, according to the statement.

In turn, the Syrian Expatriates Union in Sweden and Europe organized a festive event on the Independence Day attended by a number of heads and members of the Syrian associations in Sweden.

Also in Slovakia, the Syrian students stressed that commemorating this great occasion proves once again that the sacrifices in the past and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army today to confront terrorism, occupation, challenges and Western coercive measures are a continuous struggle.
