Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Saturday that the Syrian people are the only one who determine their future, not the external states, calling on all who have influence and have the desire to reach a solution to help the Syrians launch a constructive dialogue.
“The talks which were held during my visit to a number countries concentrated on the necessity for halting violence in Syria and reaching a solution as there was a consensus on the importance of confronting terrorism and extremists,” Zarif said at a press conference with his Senegal’s counterpart Mankeur Ndiaye in Tehran.
“The viewpoints of all states I have visited were identical that the international conference on Syria, Geneva 2, is very important,” Zarif said, describing the talks held during his latest tour as very constructive.
The Iranian foreign Minister concluded his tour to a number of regional countries on Friday which covered Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Russia.
