The Foreign Minister of Iran, Mr. Ali Akbar Salehi, warned in a recent statement that the ongoing crisis and conflict in Syria is able to engulf the entire region and, thus, the Syrian conflict is already threatening the security of some neighboring countries of Syria, while some of these neighboring countries like e.g. parts of Lebanon and Jordan are deeply involved in the conflict in Syria.
The Iran Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said this statement at the current international conference dubbed “Scholars and Islamic Awakening” in the capital Tehran yesterday. The Foreign Minister of Iran said the following statement to the listeners at the international conference in Tehran:
“What is currently going on in Syria as an important country in the region is a threat which would pose a serious challenge to calm and security in the entire region.”
The Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi stated further that the Islamic Republic of Iran has called for an end of the conflict and war in Syria since the beginning of the crisis in this important country of the region and that Iran is still calling for the restoration of calm in Syria. Iran further, according to the statement by Ali Akbar Salehi, supports the process of democracy and the people`s role in the social and political decision-making. Some might wonder if they support the same things on their own soil, too. At least, according to the usual Western propaganda, they don`t.
Iran`s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi also expressed regrets that some so-called governments have supplied arms and ammunition to the armed terrorist groups and groups of religious fanatics and jihadists in Syria to massacre Syrian civilians and to topple the Syrian government in Damascus.
Of course, the Iranian Foreign Minister Salehi stated again, that the Islamic Republic of Iran opposes any foreign intervention in Syria and after all, the Iranian leadership is sure aware of the fact that they are probably the next target of some foreign powers when Syria lost – what will hopefully not happen.
The Iranian Foreign Minister also called on the participants in the conference (Scholars and Islamic Awakening in Tehran) to prepare the important and necessary grounds for the beginning of so-called broad-based negotiations and dialogue between the Syrian government in Damascus and the so-called opposition.
The Iranian Minister persuaded both parties to join these negotiations although Mr. Salehi should know that there are many more “parties” involved than just the Syrian government and the staged external “opposition”.
