Iran condemns killings in Syria
Azerbaijan, Baku, April 28 / Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Iran condemns the ongoing unrests and killings in Syria, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said, Fars reported.
Amir-Abdollahian noted that some countries that supply weapons to Syria, have their own interests in that country. He also said these countries were supporting terrorist groups in Syria.
"They are responsible for the deaths of innocent people," Amir-Abdollahian said.
On Friday, the Syrian capital was Friday hit by blasts that killed at least 11 people and wounded 30, according to state media.
The opposition has reported a large number of defections from the Syrian army since the pro-democracy uprising started in the country in March 2011.
The persistent violence casts a shadow over the durability of a ceasefire, which is a major component of a plan proposed by UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan to end the bloodshed in Syria.
The Syrian government and opposition have traded accusations for the repeated violations of the truce that came into effect on April 12.
Reporting in Syria is curtailed by a government prohibition on foreign journalists, making independent verification of reports difficult.
