|Tehran meeting meant to bring calm to Syria: official||
TEHRAN – Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has said that the aim of the Tehran meeting on Syria is to support international efforts meant to bring calm to the crisis-hit Arab country.
Tehran will host a foreign ministerial meeting on Syria on Thursday. Foreign ministers from a number of influential regional and extra-regional countries will attend the meeting for consultations on the Syrian crisis.
Syria has been gripped by unrest triggered by armed protests against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Iran says a foreign conspiracy, fueled by the United States and its allies, intends to undermine Syria, which is on the front line of the resistance movement against the Zionist regime.
Amir-Abdollahian said, “The Tehran meeting will be held with the aim of supporting extensive regional and international efforts meant to help the Syrian people find a way out of the current crisis.”
“(The countries attending) the meeting believe that a national dialogue between the opposing sides in Syria is the best way to bring calm to Syria and pave the way for achieving a mutually agreed solution,” he added.
