Iran, Russia discuss solutions for Mideast

TEHRAN, Aug. 07 (MNA) – Iranian deputy FM and Russian special envoy for the Middle East and Africa discussed the latest developments in Yemen, Libya and Syria.

During a joint meeting of Iran and Russia attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Special Envoy for the Middle East and Africa Mikhail Bogdanov in Tehran on Thursday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian reaffirmed the Islamic Republic’s support for a political and win-win solution to the ongoing conflicts in the region.

“During recent negotiations between the Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif and Kuwaiti and Qatari officials, it was stressed that the regional issues, including those in Bahrain, Yemen, Syria and Iraq, have no solution but a political one based on a win-win approach,” Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said, pointing to Iranian high-ranking officials’ positive approach towards improving relations with neighbors, particularly the regional countries.

Amir-Abdollahian said that the Islamic Republic’s policy to promote ties with its neighbors provides regional countries with an opportunity to remove obstacles and settle conflicts in the region and boost cooperation in favor of regional countries.

Underlining US dangerous plots in the region, he criticized certain regional countries for pursuing a military approach to the current conflicts in the region.   

The Russian official, for his part, stressed the need for further consultations among regional countries, especially Iran and Saudi Arabia, to reach understanding on regional issues.

“The resolution of issues in the region, including those in Syria and Yemen, is impossible without Iran’s participation,” Bogdanov reaffirmed, stressing that the persistence of insecurity would further empower terrorists, including ISIL militants.

Regarding Yemen’s developments, Bogdanov expressed Russia’s defiance to any foreign military intervention which is in opposition to recognized international rights.
