TEHRAN, Sep. 16 (MNA) – The three presidents of Iran, Turkey and Russia agree on preserving Syria’s territorial integrity and all oppose foreign interference in the country, President Rouhani said at a joint press conference with president Erdogan and president Putin.

At a joint press conference alongside President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey and Russian President Veladimir Putin on Monday evening in Ankara, which was held after their Fifth Round of Tripartite Summit to discuss a political solution to Syrian conflict within the Astana Format, the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said “it was a very constructive summit and all the three countries have a united stance to preserve Syria’s integrity.”

Rouhani said that all the three presidents agree on Syria’s territorial integrity and “we oppose foreign interference.”

The Iranian president condemned the illegal US presence in northern Syria, warning that “the US pursues dangerous objective of disintegrating Syria.”

He also slammed the US illegal recognition of Syria’ Gloan Heights as part of the occupying regime of Israel.
