Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has called on all parties in Zimbabwe to resolve their differences through dialogue and avoid using violence and force.
In a statement on Thursday, Qassemi said the Islamic Republic of Iran is closely observing all developments in Zimbabwe, and calls on all parties involved in the recent developments to settle the country’s recent problems only through dialogue and peaceful means.
He also urged them to refrain from resorting to violence and force and act democratically within the framework of the African country’s Constitution based on the will and interests of the Zimbabwean nation.
Qassemi pointed to efforts being made by African bodies, particularly the African Union and the South African Development Community (SADC), and certain African leaders to resolve the problems created in Zimbabwe, and expressed the hope that the efforts would bear fruit as soon as possible.
“We hope these efforts would lead to the restoration and establishment of peace, stability, and the rule of law in the friendly country of Zimbabwe,” he added.
