Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast says the Islamic Republic will use all its capacities to resolve Syria's crisis and establish security in the region, Press TV reported.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the influential countries in establishing security in Syria," Mehmanparast said on Saturday.

He added that the security of region and all regional countries depends on the security of Syria and said, "We believe that in case of [adopting] an unrealistic approach towards the issue of Syria, not using influential countries with complete capacity to resolve the crisis in this country and also not taking necessary actions in various international summits to stop the violence, no result will be achieved and these summits are doomed to failure."

The Iranian official said Tehran supported the UN-Arab League joint envoy's plan, adding that in the current situation, the best solution to resolve Syria's crisis is that all countries and governments also support Kofi Annan and his six-point plan.

In March, Annan presented a set of concrete proposals to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during two rounds of talks in Damascus.

Mehmanparast said grounds for dialogue between the Syrian government and the opposition in an atmosphere away from foreign interference and violence must be provided so that they could make their demands clear.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. The violence has claimed the lives of many people, including security forces.

The West and the Syrian opposition accuse the government of killing protesters, but Damascus blames "outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups" for the unrest, asserting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
