An Iranian Parliament member warned that disastrous consequences will happen if Syria’s integrity is not maintained.
“During the last five years, the Syrian resistance front didn’t allow the Takfiris [extremists] and their allies to reach their goals,” said Mohammad-Javad Abtahi, an Iranian lawmaker, according to a Farsi report by ICANA.
“While the plotters of Syrian war imagined that Damascus would fall soon, the Syrian people defended their legal administration, not letting this malicious objective to be achieved.”
He then referred to the Syrian new Constitution draft, prepared by Russia, and said, “Syria’s integrity must be regarded as an inviolable principle.”
“This principle has apparently been stressed in the Constitution proposal. Deep down, however, the draft paves the way for Syria’s disintegration by giving Kurds and some other ethnic groups cultural autonomy.”
“In no circumstances should Syria become the subject of other powers’ ninetieth century-like political deals,” he emphasized.
“The disintegration is the strategy the US pursues in the Syrian war,” Abtahi noted. “We are worried about its effects on the Middle East.”
“Iraq and Turkey’s disintegration will follow Syria’s; it finally leads to the repetition of disastrous conflicts such as Yugoslav wars.”
He went on to say that Tehran has always supported Syria’s integrity.
“We are holding on to our boundaries while they are shaping their own future.”
