UN, Damscus Dialogue ‘Vital’ For Syria, Says Iran’s FM


By Tamer Aboalenin

A UN solution on the Syrian crisis must go through constructive dialogue between the United Nation and the Syrian regime, said Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi late Monday.

Speaking to KUNA, Salehi said that his meeting with former UN Secretary-General and UN-Arab League joint special envoy on Syria Kofi Annan was fruitful, adding that the meeting focused on Annan’s mission to end violence in the Arab country.

“Tehran is willing to play a role that will lead to security, stability, and peace in Syria,” said Salehi, who stressed that it was important to provide the Syrian government with much needed time to implement reforms.

The government had just recently run a referendum on the constitution, which was a good step, said the Iranian chief diplomat, adding that Tehran was all for solutions that would come within Syria and without “foreign interference”.
