TEHRAN – Iran is trying to facilitate talks between the Syrian government and its Kurdish population, chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee has said.

Speaking to IRNA on Thursday, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh said the Kurds and the Syrian government have already held some rounds of talks, adding that the situation is ripe to push the negotiations forward.

Elsewhere in the interview, Falahatpisheh warned that a war in northern Syria would trigger humanitarian crisis, especially as there are about 100,000 terrorists in Idlib.
