Iran’s foreign minister meets Syrian opposition head
Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has met with Head of the Syrian National Coalition Moaz al-Khatib in the German city of Munich.

Salehi and Khatib held the 45-minute meeting on the sidelines of the 49th annual Munich Security Conference on Saturday.

Salehi also met with UN-Arab League Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi to discuss the latest developments in the Arab country.

The Iranian foreign minister called for concerted efforts by all countries to help cease the ongoing violence in Syria and prevent the destruction of the country’s infrastructure by the foreign-backed militants.

Salehi underscored the importance of national dialog as the best solution for the crisis.

In separate meetings with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi and Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Miqati, the Iranian foreign minister discussed the major regional developments and elaborated on Iran’s six-point plan for the Syrian crisis.

On December 16, Iran unveiled the details of the six-point plan to resolve the ongoing crisis in Syria, which calls for an immediate end to all violent and armed acts.

The plan calls for sending humanitarian aid to Syrians following the end of all conflicts, lifting all economic sanctions imposed against the country, and facilitating the return of displaced Syrians to their homes.

It also urges talks between the Syrian government and the representatives of all Syrian groups regardless of their political and social tendencies in order to form a national reconciliation committee.
