“Those who advocate terrorists in Syria and Iraq and fan the fuel of violence in our region should notice that someday the terrorists would be back and put in danger their advocatesˈ security,” Sarmadi stressed in a meeting with Irish Deputy Foreign Minister Berry Robinson in Tehran on Wednesday.
Referring to the three years of political crisis in Syria, the official added that today all “regional and international players acknowledge the fact that Syrian crisis has no military solution”.
Robinson, for his part, stressed that the Syrian crisis should be resolved through non-military ways.
Ireland is against spread of terrorism and violence and believes that the crisis in Syria has no military solution, he added.
Media reports in June said that the foreign-backed militants fighting against the Iraqi government in the Western parts of the Arab country are receiving monthly salaries in cash from Riyadh and Doha.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants fighting against the Iraqi government in the city of Fallujah in Anbar Province in Western Iraq receive a monthly salary of $700 from the governments of Riyadh and Doha, the Iraq Al-Qanoun news website quoted member of Fallujah Liberation Council Maki Al-Issawi as saying.
The ISIL terrorists launched their offensive by seizing the North’s main city, Mosul, in June and have swept through the Tigris river valley, North of Baghdad. They have boasted of massacring hundreds of troops and civilians, including women and children, captured in their advance.
The terrorists have been joined by other factions, including former members of ousted dictator Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party.
