Iran: Any military action on Syria is playing with fire
Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Middle East and North of Africa Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Tuesday that any military action on Syria is tantamount to playing with fire, IRNA reported.
He told reporters in Moscow that such irrational action will bring unpredictable consequences.
Military action on Syria would engulf the entire region as well as the international community, he said.
He said that the Islamic republic of Iran backs reforms promised by the Syrian president in the context of the new Constitution which was approved by referendum.
The new Constitution grants multi-party democracy authorizing political parties to take leadership of the country and the helm of political structure through democratically held elections.
"We believe that the current political solution is the best option to resolve Syrian problems," he said.
Slaughter of Syrian people from any sides is among Iran's red line, he pointed out.
'The Islamic Republic of Iran is opposed to the interference foreign forces in the Syrian domestic issues.'
On developments in Bahrain, he said, "We assess the current situation in the country is very critical."
Unfortunately, the people's legitimate demands led to carnage of revolutionary people in Bahrain, he said.
Amir Abdollahian said that the number of martyrs in this small Persian Gulf littoral state is 97 times more than the martyrs in Egypt revolution.
On the current turmoil in the energy market, Amir Abdollahian said that Iran seeks restoration of peace and stability in the Persian Gulf region, the passage for transfer of energy to the global market, a reference to the Strait of Hormuz under permanent surveillance of Iranian Navy.
"We regard oil as a strategic commodity which leaves serious impact on global equations," he said.
Iran never interfere in domestic affairs of other states, Amir Abdollahian underlined.
Amir Abdollahian arrived in Moscow on Monday to confer with the country's high ranking officials on issues of mutual interest, the Middle East and global developments.
