Iran: Truce contributes to resolve Syrian crisis through political solutions
Baku, Azerbaijan, March. 1
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
After establishing truce in Syria, there is better prospect of resolving crisis through political solutions, an Iranian official said.
Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has called on international community to contribute for the continuation of the ceasefire in Syria and serious fight against terrorism, ILNA news agency reported.
Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks at a meeting with Head of Middle East and North Africa Division of Switzerland Wolfgang Amadeus Bruelhart discussing the regional developments.
He further touched upon crisis in Yemen and called for ending conflict and sending humanitarian aid to the Arab nation.
Speaking about crisis in Yemen, Amir-Abdollahian said Tehran backs the idea of national dialogue aimed at ending the conflict in Yemen.
In turn, Wolfgang Amadeus Bruelhart said his country is interested in cooperation with Iran in the regional issues.
The first major cessation of hostilities in the five years of Syrian crisis was agreed in late February as part of a US-Russian plan. However, both pro-government and anti-government forces have reported several breaches of truce over the past week.
More than 250,000 have been killed in the Syrian crisis with hundreds of thousands displaced.
