“Any military intervention in Syrian crisis by third-party countries is unacceptable, and extremely weakens legitimate government and state institutions supported by the public, and will definitely spread insecurity and terrorism in scopes unimagined of before; recent shift of priorities to that of a sort of cooperation with Syrian government and opting for political means proves Syrian upper hand and its principled positons in respecting to the will of people and democracy in the country,” he told al-Muallem.

Leader’s representative to the Council also pointed to political attempts as necessary to solve current crises in the region; “the road trodden by Iran in the nuclear issue demonstrated that dialogue would be a good alternative to violence and coercion; regional cooperation is necessary to tackle the contributing factors of instability, and a responsible position toward these crises by countries in the region would prove effective in addressing the major threat of the Zionist regime, who has been most benefited from spread of terrorism,” Shamkhani asserted.

Walid al-Muallem provided the meeting with a report of the current situation in the field, and taking ground against Takfirist groups, believing that diplomatic path was the most important option now available; “Syrian government had dialogues with unarmed opposition groups interested in Syrian territorial integrity,” said al-Muallem, expressing gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran’s government and people for supports for Syrian people and government.

“A change of approach in part of some countries toward support of terrorists and effective confrontation with the ISIL and other terrorist groups are prerequisite to any long-term sustainable solution to the crisis in Syria,” he told the meeting.
