IRNA – Iran hailed recent agreements reached on the Syrian city of Idlib by the Russian and Turkish presidents hoping that the agreements would lead to good results.
“We hope that the upcoming events and agreements that are a success in diplomacy will lead to good results in Idlib and we will witness a new Syria,” said the spokesman of Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.
Commenting on the agreement reached on September 17 by Turkey and Russia to establish a “demilitarized zone” in Idlib, Bahram Qasemi said that Iran has always been involved in and informed of latest developments in Syria.
‘We have always been informed of ongoing developments and constant consultations between the three countries (Syria, Russia and Turkey) and nothing has been done without the other two knowing about it,’ Qasemi said speaking on the sidelines of a local ceremony in Tehran.
Welcoming the agreement made by Turkey and Russia in Sochi to create a demilitarized zone in Idlib, he said, ‘The summit between Turkish and Russian leaders and the agreement made about how to solve Idlib problem is an important step in expunging the remnant of the terrorists in Syria.’
The agreement can help put an end to the life of terrorist groups and restore peace in Syria through providing the required needs and considering all humanitarian aspects, Qasemi added.
‘Stopping any kind of violence and bloodshed as well as removing terrorism from the zone are one of the most fundamental principles of Iran’s Foreign Policy,’ Qasemi said.
He also hoped that the Sochi meeting can solve the problems of Syrian people and remove the violence-seeking forces from the Arab country, in line with positive framework of Astana talks and the Tehran summit.
