TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian deputy foreign minister underscored that the Syrian people’s resistance against foreign-backed rebels has given their Army an upper hand in the ongoing crisis in the country.
In a meeting with a group of Syrian political and social activists in Tehran on Sunday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that Syria has passed the hardest conditions ever through the last years.
Amir Abdollahian pointed out that “the Syrian enemies have already been defeated and the International Geneva II Peace Conference proves it”.
The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
The UN has set January 22, 2014, as the date for an international peace conference on Syria. The conference will open in the Swiss city of Montreux on January 22, before moving to the UN office in Geneva on January 24.
