TEHRAN – A conference on the Syrian crisis will be held in Tehran on Wednesday to study the latest developments in the country, the chairman of the Iranian Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee announced on Tuesday.
The chairmen of the foreign policy committees of the parliaments of Islamic countries will attend the conference, MP Alaeddin Boroujerdi told reporters at a press conference in Tehran.
He expressed hope that the meeting would make a positive contribution to the efforts to reach an agreement for the next step in exchanging views on developments in Syria.
MPs from Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, and Algeria will participate in the conference. Russia will also be represented at the meeting.
Some MPs from the two revolutionary countries of Cuba and Venezuela have also been invited to attend the conference.
Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani will also attend the conference.
In February, Boroujerdi, at the head of a parliamentary delegation, made a trip to Damascus, where he submitted the proposal to the Syrian parliament to hold the conference.
Boroujerdi said his talks with Syrian officials revolved around the recent developments in the country.
He went on to say that many regions in Syria, including Aleppo, have been recaptured from the militants, and Damascus enjoys an acceptable level of security.
The MP said the course of developments in Syria will cause pro-terrorist countries to change their position toward the Syria conflict.
