Following the defeat of terrorists in Nubbul and Zahraa, Iranian deputy FM said on Thursday, they left the table of talks in Geneva.
“After the siege on Nubbul and Zahraa was broken, terrorists who were seeking to gain the upper hand in negotiations saw their equations screwed up and left Geneva talks III,” told Hossein Amir-Abdollahian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Countries at a live political show of IRIB on Thursday.
He touched upon the presence of the official Syrian delegation in Geneva and described it as a proof to show that the Syrian government is still pursuing a political solution to the crisis while at the same time it continues its war on terror as its main objective of prime importance.
“The opposition side sabotaged the talks many times and set conditions to pose pressure upon the official delegation of the Syrian government but all their plots were foiled finally,” underlined the Iranian diplomat.
The deputy foreign minister recounted that “the terrorists had pre-conditioned their attendance in Geneva upon the removal of siege over terrorist-conquered areas,” and highlighted that “the terrorists were pursuing their unsuccessful battlefield objectives to be fulfilled in Geneva.
Answering a question about his latest visit to Moscow, Amir-Abdollahian said that it was to coordinate the stances of Tehran and Moscow toward Geneva talks over the Syrian crisis, Yemeni crisis, Iraqi crisis and issues in North Africa especially in Libya.
“We keep consulting with the Russian side especially in terms of dealing with crisis in Syria,” reiterated the Iranian senior diplomat.
