Spokeswoman: Iran Concerned about terrorists' CW Possession in Syria

TEHRAN - Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham welcomed Syria's decision to join the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), but said Tehran is concerned about the possession of such weapons by the terrorist groups in Syria,according to FNA.

"It is obvious that Syria's joining the CWC is a positive step but there are concerns about the reluctance of other countries and the Zionist regime to join this Convention," Afkham said in her weekly press conference in Tehran on Tuesday.

She underlined Tehran's demand for the dismantlement of all Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) in the region, and said, "Certain measures should be adopted to obviate these concerns."

Afkham said that "the dangers of the possession of such weapons by the Takfiri and terrorist groups is still a more serious concern" which should be paid attention and obviated.
