Zarif: London conference on Syria good opportunity to outline Iran plans

The Syria Donors Conference is an ample opportunity for the Islamic Republic of Iran to put forward its plans for addressing the crisis in Syria and helping the country, says Iran’s Foreign Minister.

‘The conference will provide Iran with an opportunity to express its position on the Syria crisis,’ said Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Zarif arrived in British capital Wednesday evening to participate in the Syria Donors Conference 2016.

Iran’s top diplomat urged that the human crisis in Syria and the issue of Syrian refugees should be addressed appropriately.

‘The Conference will let the Islamic Republic to mention the aid it has provided and is providing for the Syrian people,’ he added.

Zarif also said that he will hold talks with other participants and he will visit British officials and people from research institutes on the sidelines of the event.

‘We will use the opportunity to study not only the best ways for implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action, but also we will hold talks to survey the regional situation and ways to achieve peace in Syria and Yemen and end the conflicts,’ he said.

The Syria Donors Conference 2016 is going to be inaugurated on Thursday morning in London.

The Iranian Foreign Minister will also take part in a meeting organized by the London-based think-tank Chatham House.
