Iran Underlines Respect for Syrian Nation’s Right in Geneva II Conference

Politics - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham reiterated Tehran’s support for the Syrian nation’s right to determine the political future of their country, stressing that all participants in the international event should pursue the same approach.

The Syrian nation’s right to determine its fate is an important issue that should be considered (in the upcoming Geneva II conference),” Afkham said on Sunday.

She underlined that Iran as a country that supports political solution to the Syrian crisis declares that it will make all-out efforts to help resolve the Muslim country’s problems through diplomatic means.

Iranian officials have repeatedly underlined that Tehran is in favor of negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups to create stability in the Middle Eastern country.

In November 2012, Iran hosted a meeting between the representatives of the Syrian government and opposition to encourage them to start talks to find a political solution to their problems. The National Dialogue Conference kicked off work in Tehran mid November with the motto of 'No to Violence, Yes to Democracy".

The meeting brought together almost 200 representatives of various Syrian ethnicities, political groups, minorities, the opposition, and state officials.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
