Syria developments taking positive turn for nation, government: Iran MP

Syria developments
Senior Iranian lawmaker Seyyed Hossein Naqavi-Hosseini says the situation in Syria is changing in favor of the Syrian nation and government.

Naqavi-Hosseini, a spokesman for the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said on Monday that the situation in Syria is taking a turn in favor of the Syrian nation and government and to the detriment of the terrorists and armed opposition groups.

The Iranian lawmaker added that the plan proposed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has created “a new climate” for the future of the Arab country.

In a key speech on Sunday, Assad said his government is always ready to hold talks with the opposition and political parties and will call for a “comprehensive national dialog” after the terrorist activities end in the country.

The Syrian president added that the country’s constitution would be put to referendum and a general amnesty would be announced.

“The efforts made by UN-Arab League Joint Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi seeking the prevalence of political resolutions over military approaches to the crisis in the country, heeding Iran’s six-point plan, has achieved considerable successes,” Naqavi-Hosseini added.

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

The plan also urges the dispatch of humanitarian aid to Syrians following the end of all conflicts, the lifting of all economic sanctions imposed against the country, and the facilitation of the return of displaced Syrians to their homes.

Naqavi-Hosseini said the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee believes that the US and its regional and western allies must cease sending arms to the terrorist groups in Syria and submit to political solutions to the Syrian crisis.

“Supporting and strengthening terrorists and the armed opposition will have no result but the massacre of innocent Syrian people,” Naqavi-Hosseini said.
