Deputy Foreign Minister: Tehran believes in reforms in some Muslim countries, including Syria

Thursday, 21 June 2012

Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said, “Contrary to what the US, Zionist regime and some Arab countries believe, Syria has passed the stage of security crisis. Tehran believes that reform in some Muslim countries, including Syria, is no exception in the Islamic Republic’s foreign policy… Iran has not pursued a double-standard toward Syria, Yemen and Bahrain; Tehran has always called for reforms and urged governments to respond to the peoples’ demands. Iran has also always condemned all kinds of foreign interference in these three countries… Syria faces major discriminatory pressure from outside countries, because of its important geopolitical role in the region, while the situation in Bahrain is much more discriminatory.” Regarding the Moscow summit on Syria and Iran, and Tehran’s active presence and role there, Amir-Abdollahian said that Iran, China and Russia would support the political solution proposed by UN Special Envoy to Syria Koffi Annan. “Since the Russians and the Chinese are well-informed about the West’s anti-Syrian plots, the output of the Moscow Summit will be in favor of the Syrian nation and against the demands of the West.”
