Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has said that ceding the region to terrorists will not settle the crisis in Syria.
He made the remarks on Tuesday in a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Mohammad Jihad al-Laham on the sidelines of the 4th World Conference of Speakers of Parliaments in New York, sponsored by the Geneva-based Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).
He said the Islamic Republic of Iran deems it a duty to support the government and people of Syria until the stage is set for dialogue and peace will be ready.
The Syrian speaker hailed Iran’s stand against terrorism in Syria and said, “The resistance movement will be victorious because it is based on ethical principles.”
Al-Laham also criticized UN special envoy and international mediators for not observing impartiality in the Syrian crisis and said, they speak of peace but they act differently.
