Beirut, March 8, IRNA – Former Secretary General of the Arab League Amr Moussa has said that presence of Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt is necessary for settlement of the Syrian crisis.

Speaking in an interview with the As-Safir of Lebanon, the veteran Egyptian diplomat said the three countries should be part of any political solution to the ongoing crisis in Syria.

He further stressed that working out a solution to the Syrian crisis also needed the participation of Russia, the US, Turkey and even that of the United Nations.

Noting that big powers acted incorrectly at the beginning of the Syrian crisis, Moussa said bullying powers led by a number of western countries are usually well in triggering and fueling conflicts but fail to resolve tensions.

He said during the past two Geneva conferences, the world has witnessed the inefficiency of big powers in finding a solution to the situation in Syria.

The Vetaran Egyptian diplomat noted that the Syrian crisis had many negative impacts on the entire region, its neighboring countries in particular, including the spread of terrorism and destruction as well as insecurity, unrest and chaos.
