Former UN-Arab League Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi says the peace plan proposed by Iran to help resolve the deadly crisis gripping Syria is “worth discussing.”
In a Sunday interview with the Washington-based al-Monitor website, Brahimi pointed to the four-point peace plan devised by the Islamic Republic to help end more than three years of Takfiri violence in Syria and said, “I think it is worth discussing it with them.”
“Discussing it (the four-point plan) does not mean taking it all as it is. But I think it is one of the elements you can discuss,” added Brahimi, who resigned from his post as the joint UN-Arab League special envoy to Syria on May 13.
Iran’s proposed peace plan stresses a political settlement to the crisis in Syria, the territorial integrity and independence of the Arab country as well as its people’s right to self-determination in a democratic election.
Brahimi once again underlined the significance of Iran’s role in any “political solution” to the ongoing turmoil in Syria and said the Islamic Republic “must be part of the solution.”
