Iran stressed the diplomatic approach should replace the current situation in Syria and said the ongoing crisis in Syria was a plot devised to ensure the security of the Zionist regime.
“All who believe in supporting rights of the Syrian people and claim to be advocate of establishing democracy in different countries including Syria, should realize that the best way to meet demands of the Syrian people is to hold a referendum in a peaceful and stable atmosphere which is free from violence,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said during his weekly press conference Tuesday.
Mehmanparast stressed that the democratic approach should also be used in other regional states such as Bahrain.
In the meantime, Iran’s Ambassador to Lebanon Ghazanfar Roknabadi said the trend of the developments in Syria proved that “a plot had been hatched to create a crisis in Syria in order to ensure the security of the Zionist regime (Israel).”
The Iranian ambassador made the remarks in a meeting with Lebanese Coptic leader Archbishop Louis Urshalimi on Monday.
Stressing the necessity of strengthening stability and solidarity in the regional countries particularly Lebanon and Syria, the Iranian ambassador said the Islamic Republic does not spare any effort to facilitate unity among nations fighting against the occupying regime of Israel.
Urshalimi, for his part, said the situation in Syria is progressing toward stability but certain media outlets are trying to portray a distorted picture of the developments.
Urshalimi stressed the necessity of a political solution to the crisis in Syria and said the continuation of conflicts has no result but more devastation.
