Iran: Ceasefire in Syria within a week
Iran’s Deputy FM Amir-Abdollahian told the reporters after the meeting of the ISSG on Friday that an immediate ceasefire will be reached in Syria within a week.
Two subjects were clearly discussed in the meeting of the ISSG, the first of them ceasefire in all areas except those held by terrorists, told the reporters Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs, at the end of the meeting of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) in Munich on Friday.
He said that it was unanimously agreed upon to establish ceasefire within a week or even if it was possible less than 3 days.
The second agenda of talks was humanitarian helps to be reached to besieged areas, said Amir-Abdollahian underlining that food and medicine are the top priorities.
He recounted that there were serious challenges in the meeting as there are still disagreements over issues like the list of terrorist groups and “some parties are still insistent on their wrong policies.” However, we are still hopeful to reach ceasefire in areas not under terrorists and deliver humanitarian aids to the civilians affected by war, reiterated Iranian diplomat.
Also political solution was highlighted again and the next round of Geneva talks to be scheduled by Staffan de Mistura, the UN special envoy for Syria, is stressed to be attended by all sides involved, recounted the Iranian deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs.
He also said that Saudi FM Jubair, during the meeting, accused Russians of bombarding all oppositions of Assad, which was responded by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Viktorovich Lavrov who reiterated that Russian airplanes just bombard terrorists specially ISIS and Al-Nusra.
