Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says last week's Vienna talks on Syria were a positive step toward the resolution of the lingering crisis gripping the war-ravaged Arab country through political means.

The top diplomat made the comment in a meeting with Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad in Tehran on Wednesday, Fars News Agency reported.

"The meeting was a positive move on the path to a political solution."

He said the Islamic Republic's policy on Syria is based on "clear, logical and unchanging" principles.  

"We believe that the Syrian people should decide their future, and others can only act as a facilitator in the political process in Syria to help resolve the crisis."    

Mekdad thanked Iran for its positions on Syria, saying, "The Islamic Republic of Iran's support for the Syrian people will be recorder in history."
