|Conference on Syria opens in Tehran today||
TEHRAN – A conference on the Syrian crisis will be held in Tehran on Sunday to discuss the latest developments in the Arab country, the chairman of the Iranian Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee announced on Saturday.
The chairmen of the foreign policy committees of the parliaments of the countries that are “friends of Syria” will attend the conference, MP Alaeddin told reporters at a press conference in Tehran.
About 30 parliamentary delegations from a number of Latin American, African, and Middle Eastern countries will participate in the conference. Russia will also be represented at the meeting.
Boroujerdi said that the conference will be held as part of the Islamic Republic’s policy to help promote peace in Syria, which is in the front line of the campaign against the Zionist regime.
Most of the world’s countries believe that there is only a political solution to the Syrian crisis and disapprove of the policy of boosting terrorism in Syria which has been pursued by the United States, he said, adding that the Islamic Republic, as a victim of terrorism, is opposed to this phenomenon and supports the campaign against the menacing issue of terrorism.
Commenting on the June 3 presidential election in Syria, the MP said that in view of the fact that the Syrian constitution has been amended, various parties are now allowed to engage in political activities and participate in a free election.
