Iran urges int’l support for an end to Syrian crisis

Tehran, March 17, IRNA — Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian called for an international effort to help resolve the crisis in Syria by facilitating dialogue among the opposing factions.

“World countries and regional organizations must help devise a political solution in Syria based on a democratic process through Syrian-Syrian dialogue,” Amir Abdollahian said during a meeting with UN-Arab League Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi in Tehran on Monday.

He underlined the need for a serious campaign against regional terrorism, particularly in Syria, and voiced Tehran’s support for Brahimi’s efforts to help resolve the crises across the Middle East and Syria.

“The key to resolving the Syrian crisis is border control measures to stop arms trafficking and the infiltration of foreign-backed militant groups,” he added.

Brahimi, for his part, hailed Iran’s efforts to help find a peaceful solution for this issue, calling for the expansion of Iran’s relations with regional countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, as a “highly effective and constructive” strategy.
