Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani has expressed the Islamic Republic’s concern over escalating tension between Syria and Turkey, urging an immediate end to the ongoing conflict.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is concerned about tension in relations between neighboring and Muslim states, including Turkey and Syria, and is ready to take major steps for the restoration of peace in the two countries’ relations,” Larijani said.

He added that the growing unrest in the region is detrimental to the interests of regional countries and the principle of unity among Muslim states.

Tensions between Ankara and Damascus escalated after a mortar shell fired from Syria killed five people in the southeastern Turkish town of Akcakale in Sanliurfa Province on Wednesday.

Larijani also called for Turkey’s humanitarian efforts to release 48 Iranian pilgrims abducted by insurgents in Syria.

Iran’s Majlis Speaker has also expressed gratitude for the Libyan government’s efforts to secure the release of the Iranian nationals who had been abducted in the North African country.

Larijani hailed the efforts of the Libyan government that had played an effective role in the release of the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) members.
