Iran willing to help political solution in Syria
Deputy-FM for Arab and African Affairs has announced Iran’s willingness to help find a solution to Syrian crisis.
Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Ramzy Ezzeldin Ramzy, the Deputy Special Envoy of the Secretary-General of the United Nations for Syria Staffan de Mistura met and discussed latest developments in Syrian crisis.
Mr. Ramzi believed that Syrian crisis was in a critical point which required immediate political solution. He also highlighted the role of the Islamic Republic of Iran as a major contributor to the peace process. “Currently, we welcome and need Iran’s initiatives for a way out of the ongoing crisis in Syria,” he told Amir-Abdollahian.
Deputy-FM for his part said that Syrian crisis would find a solution if only the international players in Syria came to terms with the realities on the ground in the country. Amir-Abdollahian emphasized on serious evaluation of Syrian government role in the region, fighting terrorism, and avoiding using terrorism as a mere instrument of vested interests, inviting real representatives of Syrian people, and also avoiding politicization of humanitarian aid as contributing factors to the possible solution.
“Tehran has always emphasized that there is no military solution to Syrian crisis; however, the warring factions in the country had violated the ceasefire several times in Khan Tuman and Aleppo, with some countries clearly supporting terrorists in Syria to maximally use the situation as a trump card on the negotiation table,’ Amir-Abdollahian concluded.
