Iran warns West not to enter into new issues in Syria
Western countries should not enter into new issues in Syria, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Tuesday, ISNA reported.
Mehmanparast added, "some western powers try to create and toughen tension in and amongst the countries through suspicious aims. Iran recommends the West to learn lesson from its previous mistakes and interference in different countries and not to enter new issues to complicate the problems in the region."
He continued, "situation in Syria will be eased if foreigners allow."
"Iran has frequently announced that any military meddling in the countries of the region, North Africa and Persian Gulf neighboring states is not legal and cannot help resolve the problems." Mehmanparast said regarding comments of British Foreign Minister William Hague on military attack over Syria.
Syria has been in unrest since mid March when anti-government protests broke out in the southern province of Daraa and spread to other cities. The Syrian authorities blamed the unrest on "armed groups and foreign conspiracy" and stressed that it would track down gunmen who have intimidated people and damaged public and private properties.
