Iran’s FM, Arab League chief discuss settlement of Syria crisis

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Arab League Secretary General Nabil El-Araby in a meeting on Thursday discussed the ways to help settle the prolonged crisis that has engulfed Syria since 2011.

In the bilateral meeting, held on the sidelines of the 17th Ministerial Conference of the Non-Aligned Movement in Algiers, Zarif and El-Araby conferred on the latest developments in the Middle East region.

They mainly explored avenues for the settlement of the Syrian crisis, with an emphasis on Iran’s positive role.

Tehran has always insisted that a political approach would be the sole solution to the three-year-old crisis in Syria, saying that campaign against terrorism should be top on the agenda of any regional or international conference on Syria.

Syria’s war that started in 2011 has killed over 130,000 people so far and forced more than 2 million to flee abroad. Another 4 million have been displaced inside the country.
