China congratulates re-elected Bashar al-Assad

Chinese President Xi Jinping has congratulated Bashar al-Assad on his re-election as President of Syria, while praising the “traditional friendship” between the two countries, the Chinese news agency reported on Tuesday.

Iran and Russia, the main allies of the Syrian regime, have already hailed the victory of the outgoing president, who was surprisingly re-elected for the fourth time on Thursday, receiving more than 95% of the vote. China has continued to support the Syrian regime since the outbreak of the country’s civil war in 2011, and has joined forces with Russia to block any UN Security Council resolution on the issue.

Xi Jinping’s message to his Syrian opponent on Monday was quoted by China’s official news agency as saying that China “strongly supports” the defense of Syria’s national sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity. He pledged China’s help in rebuilding the Syrian economy and fighting the Kovit-19 epidemic.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Tuesday that a decade-long war in Syria had claimed nearly half a million lives, killing tens of thousands of victims in the regime’s prisons, most of them tortured.
