Three-Way Consultations on Syria

Three-Way Consultations on Syria

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem was in Iran to exchange views on the latest developments in the crisis-hit Arab country with senior Iranian officials, including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
Accompanied by his deputy Faisal Mekdad, the Syrian minister arrived in Tehran on Tuesday for a one-day visit, Fars News Agency reported.
A trilateral meeting among Iran, Syria and Russia was also scheduled to be held on the same day to take stock of the current situation in the war-ravaged country.
Prior to the meeting, Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian met his Russian counterpart Mikhail Bogdanov, who is also the special representative of the president of the Russian Federation for the Middle East and Africa.
Amir Abdollahian in his recent comments on Syria had said, "Fortunately there has been a shift in the positions of regional players toward Syria… Although certain states previously considered war to be the best strategy to solve the crisis in Syria about four years ago, now most of them believe that concentration on a political approach would be the best solution."
The deputy minister also said Iran had consulted with United Nations special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura on the conflict, saying the envoy will convey the views expressed in the meeting at a planned United Nations Security Council on the issue.
