Iran and Russia have denounced foreign efforts to incite civil war and disintegrate Syria, saying they endanger the peace and security of the Middle East.
In a phone conversation with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the solution to the crisis in Syria was the implementation of reforms by the people and without foreign intervention.
“Given their common views and positions, Iran and Russia must make more effort to help establish peace in the region and prevent foreign intervention,” Ahmadinejad said.
Medvedev, for his part, said certain trans-regional powers seek Syria’s disintegration which is a threat to Middle East security.
The Russian president added that Iran and Russia can cooperate to peacefully resolve the crisis in Syria.
