President Bashar al-Assad sent on Wednesday a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appreciating the latter’s welcoming of retaking Palmyra city from ISIS by the Syrian army and its allies.

The President called in his letter for the UN organizations and agencies concerned to put efforts to support the Syrian government in the restoration of the ancient city of Palmyra being a cultural icon classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This could be the most appropriate moment to accelerate the collective war against terrorism, said the President, renewing Syria’s readiness to cooperate with all sincere efforts aimed at combating terrorism.
