Syria: UN Envoy has invited Iran for Geneva 2-Conference.
Even before higher-ranking officials from Russia and the United States will meet in The Hague (Netherlands) next week in order to discuss several important topics for the preparation of the upcoming international conference on Syria in Geneva (Geneva 2), the UN Envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, invited Iran to take part in this conference in Geneva in order to find a political solution for the conflict and crisis in Syria.
And this might be a slap in the face for Washington, which was not interested in the situation that Iran will participate in the conference on Syria in Geneva, although a conference on Syria without all the major players in the Middle East is neither balanced nor useful.
However, the invitation by the UN Envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, for Iran to participate in the Geneva 2-conference means nothing so far. It remains to be seen what will be the outcome of the meeting of the higher-ranking US and Russian officials next week.
In a telephone call with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamed Javad Zarif, the UN Envoy to Syria has invited Iran to participate at the upcoming Geneva 2-conference on Syria in order to find a political solution to the Syrian conflict. According to the reports, Lakhdar Brahimi has expresses his desire to continue the political negotiations and consultations with Iran in terms of Syria and the ongoing crisis in the Arab nation.
The UN Envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, also stated in this telephone call that the role of Iran is very important in order to solve the conflict in Syria as well as the other issues in the region. As a key player in the Middle East, any conference on issues in the region without the participation of Iran would be useless and sure not balanced.
Brahimi described the important role of Tehran to find a solution for the conflict in Syria, while the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamed Javad Zarif underlined the interest of Tehran in a close cooperation with the United Nations (UN) and its envoy.
Iran believes that the Syrian Government will remain in power.
Further, the Iranian administration has yet again affirmed its full support for the Syrian government in the capital Damascus as well as for the Syrian people.
The Advisor to the Supreme Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, Ali Akbar Velayati, said in a new interview in terms of the Syrian conflict and the stance of the Iranian administration in the capital Tehran, that Iran “strongly believes that the Syrian government will remain in power.”
Ali Akbar Velayati also said in his new interview with AP that the international community shall finally condemn the continued sending of arms and money to the armed terrorist groups in Syria as well as the international community should also condemn the terrorist acts of the armed terror groups on Syrian soil against the Syrian civilians.
The Advisor to the Supreme Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, Ali Akbar Velayati, also added that Tehran will never hesitate to help the people in Syria and the Syrian government in Damascus in the protection of its rights and in defending its territorial integrity.
Also the spokesman of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Abbas Araqchi, spoke about Syria and said that Tehran strongly demands the condemnation of the sending of weapons and funds to the armed terrorist groups in Syria by the international community.
In a weekly press release by the Foreign Ministry in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mr Araqchi was cited with the words that the international community as well as the international organizations have to denounce the massacres and terrorist acts perpetrated by the foreign-backed terrorist groups in Syria.
