Three-Way Talks on Syria Crisis in Tehran

The foreign ministry hosted on Tuesday a three-way meeting to discuss possible solutions to end the crisis in Syria.
The meeting was attended by deputy foreign ministers of Iran, Syria and Switzerland, which represents the EU in the talks, said Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian, Fars news agency reported.
Another trilateral meeting is scheduled to be held today with the participation of deputy foreign ministers of Iran, Iraq and Syria, he said.
"The talks would be focused on examining ways to dispatch humanitarian aid to Syria and to find mechanisms to bring all parts of the country under the cover of international assistance," the senior diplomat added. The talks also aim at exploring political solutions to combat terrorism and help promote peace, instability and security in the region, Amir Abdollahian noted, adding that the meeting will also address the "catastrophic situation in Yemen."  
The Syrian deputy foreign minister, Faisal Mekdad, had already met with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday.
In the meeting, Mekdad expressed gratitude on behalf of Damascus for the Islamic Republic's support of the Syrian government and nation.  He also gave a detailed report of the latest developments in his country, especially in the Yarmuk refugee camp, and updated the minister on his government's recent talks with Syrian opposition figures in Moscow.
Representatives of the Syrian government and some opposition groups held talks in Moscow in February and April in an effort to find a way to solve the conflict.
