Tehran: West’s Attempts to Arm Terrorists in Syria Hinder Holding International Conference

TEHRAN--Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hussein Amir Abdullahian has stressed that the West’s attempts to send weapons to terrorists in Syria is not a good start to hold the Geneva international conference on Syria.

In a statement to the Iranian News Agency IRNA on Saturday, Abdullahian said that “the Western countries’ attempts to arm terrorists in Syria is no good start for holding the proposed international conference on Syria,” pointing out that the Syrian government has spared no effort to fight terrorism and attain reforms.

Abdullahian affirmed that launching national dialogue, halting violence and giving up the decision to send weapons to armed groups in Syria can guarantee the success of the International conference to find a political solution to the crisis in Syria.
