Iran, Russia, China, Syria envoys to Lebanon discuss Syria unrest
The four ambassadors met at the Iranian Embassy in Beirut on Friday at the invitation of Roknabadi.
During the meeting, the diplomats reiterated that the foreign-sponsored armed conflict against the Syrian government has only caused death and destruction in the country, and called for an immediate end to the crisis through a political solution.
The ambassadors stated that the armed terrorist groups operating in Syria have failed to achieve their objectives, and lauded the resistance of the Syrian Army and government as well as the Syrian nation against the terrorist acts of the militants.
The envoys also expressed hope that all regional and international players would adopt a logical approach toward the political issues of the region and help thwart sedition and bloodshed targeting regional nations.
The Syria crisis began in March 2011.
The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
Militant groups, supported by certain Western states and their regional allies, such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, have been trying to topple the Syrian government for over 20 months.
Several international human rights organizations have accused the militants of committing war crimes.
