Amir-Abdollahian was referring to the renewed violence in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta, an area where militants have been using to launch mortar attacks on the Syrian capital Damascus, causing a critical humanitarian situation. Iranian deputy FM Araghchi said Friday that Iran was working closely with Syria in order to bring calm back to this area.
Meanwhile, Russia has called for a UN Security Council meeting to be held on the situation in Eastern Ghouta.
Eastern Ghouta is included in a deal between Turkey, Russia and Iran to establish de-escalation zones in Syria.
