Ahmadinejad calls for dialogue in Syria
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calls for dialogue between the Syrian government and the opposition and urges the government to respect people's rights, MNA reported.
"We are of the opinion that that nations and governments should resolve their problems with each other (through dialogue)," Ahmadinejad tells Portugal's Radiotelevisao Portuguesa when asked about Iran's position toward uprisings in Syria.
Ahmadinejad adds, "Governments and nations should respect rights and freedom."
However, the president warns that foreigners "have no right to interfere" in the internal affairs of countries.
The president goes on to say that "resort to military solution and intervention by NATO will not solve any problem, and actually democracy and freedom do not come out of the mouth of gun."
