Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif asserted that allowing the terrorist organizations to join the Syrian-Syrian talks in Geneva will discredit the UN organization. In a joint press conference with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier in Tehran on Tuesday, Zarif hailed the start of the Syrian- Syrian dialogue as “positive change”, saying,” Tehran asserted from the beginning of the crisis in Syria that the solution for it is not military and the Syrian people are the ones who determine their own fate.”
Zarif warned of the dangerous repercussions of supporting terrorism in the region, pointing out that the countries which support terrorism will be the first affected from its results in the region. He affirmed his willingness to participate in the conference on aid for Syria that will be held in London on February 4, adding that Iran has a role in the humanitarian aid for the Syrian people.
For his part, Steinmeier called on all sides to implement what will be agreed on in “Geneva3” to find a solution for the cisi in Syria, stressing that Iran has active role in the Syrian –Syrian dialogue.
