Prolonged Syria Crisis Benefits Israel

Prolonged Syria Crisis Benefits Israel

The deputy foreign minister said the continued crisis in Syria serves the interests of the Israeli regime.
Hossein Amir Abdollahian made the remarks in a meeting with Director of Middle East and North Africa at Britain's Foreign Office Edward Oakden in Tehran on Thursday, adding, "Improvement of the humanitarian conditions and promotion of political solutions are the necessary options in dealing with the challenges facing Syria," IRNA reported.  
The official elaborated on Iran's stance toward regional developments, particularly in Iraq, Syria, Bahrain and Yemen, and called it a "realistic" approach to hold consultations with Tehran on regional challenges.
The deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs said Iran's position on political, security and social processes in the region is based on the principles of backing the fight against terrorism, opposing foreign military intervention and promoting political solutions and national dialogue.    
The British diplomat, for his part, said his country attaches great importance to regional developments, calling for consultations with Iran to help restore peace and stability in the region and confront common threats, such as terrorism and extremism.  
Oakden added, "The region is experiencing very critical and fragile conditions; and terrorism will threaten the whole international environment if not curbed."
