Iran Says Ready To Facilitate Talks Between Syria Government, Opposition


Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says that Iran has already established contact with a large segment of the Syrian opposition.


“The Islamic Republic of Iran has already been in contact with a large segment of the Syrian opposition and has held consultations with them. Now, we are also ready to facilitate talks between the opposition and the Syrian government,” Salehi said.

“Regional countries and those interested in regional peace should always work hand in hand to find a way out of the crisis… in order to ensure that the final outcome will be to the benefit of the Syrian people, the region, and the international community,” he added.

Salehi announced that Iran is ready to host negotiations between the Syrian government and the country’s opposition, saying, “The Islamic Republic of Iran is ready to hold a meeting with the Syrian opposition and invite them to Iran, and we are ready to pave the way for negotiations between the opposition and the Syrian government.”

He added, “We believe that the Syrian issue should be resolved through a Syrian-Syrian solution, and nothing, no rule, and no government should be imposed on Syria from outside.”

    The “WEST” would be well advised to heed Iran’s inputs to the Syrian crisis. If they had paid attention to Iran’s ideas for both Iraq and Afghanistan much agony might have been spared.

    To be sure Iran never was a supporter of Saddam, bin Laden or the Taliban; Perhaps Hilary Clinton could answer as to why this factor was overlooked?? Will she make the same mistake in Syria??
