Iran’s political plan to settle the Syrian crisis will enter the operational phase after consultations with Russia, Hossein Amir Abdollahian said.
Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that Iran’s plan for the establishment of peace in Syria will be implemented after consultations with Moscow.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s political plan to settle the Syrian crisis will enter the operational phase after consultations with Russian officials in the next few days,” Amir Abdollahian said on Tuesday.
He said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was informed of Iran’s plan during a visit by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to Damascus last month, adding that Assad welcomed Tehran’s constructive views and presented some proposals.
Amir Abdollahian said that Tehran and Damascus also agreed to hold more talks on the details of Iran’s plans, and added that the plan focuses on the Syrian people’s role, preventing a power vacuum, fighting terrorism, helping refugees and sending humanitarian aid to Syria.
He also dismissed media reports that Iran has withdrawn from its past position on Syria.
