|Iran and Turkey consult about helping Syrians||
TEHRAN – Hossein Amir Abdollahian, the Iranian deputy foreign minister, and Feridun H.Sinirlioglu, the undersecretary of the Turkish Foreign Ministry, in a meeting in Tehran on Tuesday exchanged views on the ways to help the war-stricken Syrian people.
They studied ways to help bring back stability and security to Syria and put an emphasis on cooperation between regional countries in this respect.
Amir Abdollahian, the deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs, said Iran and Turkey should focus on the campaign against terrorism and extremism, send humanitarian aid to the Syrian people and help find a political solution for the Syrian conflict.
He went on to say that some countries which have been arming militants and pushing for a military strike against Syria have in fact been promoting violence, extremism, terrorism and the killing of civilian people in the country.
Such countries must bear the repercussions of their acts, he noted.
Sinirlioglu, for his part, highlighted the need for cooperation between the two countries to help find a political solution to the civil war in Syria.
Both sides also strongly condemned terrorist acts in Iraq and stressed the need for a secure election in that country with a high participation of people and political parties.
H. Sinirlioglu paid an official visit to Tehran at the invitation of Morteza Sarmadi, the second-ranking official at the Iranian Foreign Ministry.
