According to SANA, Zarif asserted that his country will continue to provide support to find a solution decided by the Syrians themselves away from any foreign interference.

“We as foreign parties should play the role of the facilitator and should pave the way to the help the Syrians to reach the hoped-for solutions by themselves,” Zarif said.

He called for facilitating the return of the displaced Syrians to their homeland after the Syrian Government has created all the suitable circumstances for their return.

Bassil, for his part, reaffirmed the importance of finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria and eliminating terrorism from every inch of the Syrian territories, calling for facilitating the return of the displaced Syrians to their homeland.

“Most of the Syrian territories are safe today, and the displaced Syrians want to return to their homeland which entails helping them to do that,” Bassil added.
