Iran supports Syria’s decision about the destruction of its chemical weapons arsenals.
After the British Foreign Secretary William Hague has signalled the support of the UK administration for Russias proposal to put the chemical weapons arsenals on Syrian soil under an international control by the United Nations (UN), although William Hague has lied again in his speech at the British House of Commons in regards of the Russian chemical weapons plan for Syria, it is really no surprise that Iran has repeated its support for the initiative by Moscow in terms of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles.
Further, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has underlined in a new statement that the Iranian administration in Tehran supports the decision by the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus to join the international convention on the prohibition of chemical weapons.
The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, made his new statements in a speech at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit on Friday. Iran’s President also pointed out in his speech in regards of the Syrian conflict and Russia’s initiative to place the chemical weapons of Syria under an international control that any use of force in Syria “must be neutralized.”
Of course, it is to hope that the conflict in Syria will soon come to an end and that the units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) are able to crush all foreign-backed terrorists and Al-Qaeda-affiliated jihadist groups soon, and to restore security and safety in entire Syria again.
However, it is probably more a dream than it might be the situation that the conflict and battles on Syrian soil will end soon. It is to fear that the conflict and crisis will last longer that many are able to accept. Not to mention that even in case the foreign-backed terrorists and al-Qaeda-linked Islamist forces are crushed and eliminated by the units of the Syrian Army, this does not mean a complete end to the terrorism in the Arab country. Terrorism and violence will now be present in Syria for many years.
While the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani also mentioned the nuclear energy program of Tehran in his speech at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit on Friday, there is till now no more information available about further remarks by the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran in regards of the proposal by Russia and the intentions by the Syrian governance and President al-Assad to join the international convention on the prohibition of chemical weapons. In terms of the Iranian nuclear energy program, Iran’s president said in his speech on Friday that the administration in Tehran remains committed to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
In the meantime, it might be interesting that Russia’s Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov has confirmed that the Russian administration in Moscow will increase its naval presence in the Mediterranean Sea and this means that there are in future more Russian naval ships in front of the Syrian coast. According to the announcement by Russia’s Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov, Moscow will build up its naval presence near the Syrian coastal waters and it is the talk about ten Russian battleships.
Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov said in his announcement about the Russian decision to increase its naval presence in the Mediterranean Sea that the “task” would be “crystal clear.” Of course, Admiral Viktor Chirkov spoke about the protection and security of the Russian state and that this is the clear task of the Russian navy.
According to the Russian Admiral, this is “a general practice of all fleets around the world, to be there when a tension level increases.” The Russian Navy Commander added in his announcement that “they are all going to act on operational command plan of the offshore maritime zone.”
The increase of the amount of Russian ships near the Syrian coastal waters happens to perform the task set. The Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov also stated in his new announcement that there are currently over 80 Russian warships and naval support vessels in ocean waters across the world near coastlines.
