Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said that the participants of the “Friends of Syria” are against violence in the country, adding that they are in favor of a democratic solution to the three-year conflict.
Lartijani went on to note that the upcoming pre3sidential elections shows that the Syrian government is looking for a peaceful solution to the conflict and will submit to Syrian people’s will.
For his part, Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi, noted that the presence of these countries in the second conference “shows that many other countries have joined the peace caravan and many people support the Islamic Republic of Iran’s policies on the Syrian crisis.”
Iran held the first ‘Friends of Syria Conference’ in the presence of the chairpersons of the foreign policy commissions of Iran, Algeria, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Russia in March this year.
“Most of the countries believe that the Syrian crisis only has a political solution and… the policy of strengthening terrorism pursued by the US and its allies has today turned into a serious and potential problem,” the Iranian official added.
