|Iran says its support for Syria is ‘legitimate’||
TEHRAN – Iran’s permanent ambassador to the United Nations has said that Tehran’s support for the Syrian government is “legitimate”.
In an interview with the U.S. television network, PBS, Mohammad Khazaee said Tehran’s support for Syria and its “dealings with the Syrian government” are “very legitimate,” Press TV reported.
He added that the Syrian government has its UN seat and has “been recognized by the international community.”
The Iranian diplomat noted that everyone should feel obliged to “help the people of Syria” to lead their country out of the ongoing crisis.
“We do not dictate anything to the Syrian people…. This is also what we advise other countries to do,” Khazaee said, adding, “I don’t believe that based on any international law and regulations, any country has the right to decide about the kind of government in another country.”
He said the upcoming peace conference on Syria must seek to “stop the bloodshed” in the Arab country and “pave the ground for the Syrians to decide for their future.”
