Syria Talks Constructive

Syria Talks Constructive

A lawmaker believes the recent international peace talks on Syria were a positive step toward the settlement of the conflict gripping the Arab country.
International participants in Saturday’s talks in Vienna outlined a plan for a political process in Syria leading to a “free and fair” election within two years.
“The outcome of yesterday’s negotiations in Vienna on Syria was constructive and could help avert a global crisis,” Avaz Heydarpour, a member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told ICANA on Sunday.
“The course of events in the region is heading in a dangerous direction. If effective solutions to defuse the conflicts are not worked out, a major world war would be inevitable.”
The lawmaker also said, “In addition to military measures by countries such as Russia in Syria against Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the so-called Islamic State militant group], a political process should be pursued and the people should be able to decide [their future].
“Military action by itself cannot resolve the Syria crisis … Some reforms such as changing the constitution, formation of a parliament and holding an election need to be implemented.”
