Iran: Doubled Efforts to Free Militant-Ruled Regions Only Solution to Syrian Crisis
“The solution to (crisis in) Syria is comprised of doubled efforts to free the regions occupied by the terrorists to return security and tranquility to citizens and pursue the path of Syrian-Syrian talks to reach a national consensus,” he added.
Shamkhani stressed that any foreign military interference in the Syrian crisis is unacceptable since it will weaken the legitimate ruling system, will prolong the crisis and will spread terrorism and insecurity.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 230,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. According to reports, more than seven million Syrians have become internally displaced.
