Afkham also noted that incorrect and bigoted policies towards the crisis in Syria are even affecting the efforts of the UN and other organizations.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham has dismissed the recent comments of US Secretary of State John Kerry regarding Iran’s role in Syria as distortion of facts on the ground in Syria.
“Since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, Iran has announced that the only path to ending the war and crisis in Syria goes through the organization of Syria-Syria talks and political agreement,” IRNA quoted Afkham as saying on Wednesday.
She was reacting to comments by Kerry that the US hopes Russia and Iran would play a positive role in Syria and support a political transition aimed at ending the turmoil in the country.
She also noted that incorrect and bigoted policies towards the crisis in Syria are even affecting the efforts of the UN and other organizations.
Afkham added that any plan that does not give priority to a serious fight against Takfiri terrorists and other extremist groups in Syria is doomed to failure.
