A top Iranian Foreign Ministry official says Syria has left behind the “critical security crisis.”
“Syria has passed the critical security crisis,” Amir Abdollahian, the deputy foreign minister for African and Arab affairs, said in a meeting with German lawmaker Rols Muetzenich representing the German Social Democrats.
Abdollahian said the shipment of arms to Syria and support to terrorists in Syria by certain countries have exacerbated the situation in the Arab country.
‘Iran, Germany can help resolve issues through consultation’
Amirabdollahian also said Iran and Germany, as two countries with great regional and international clout, can help settle crises through “consultation”.
Currently, alleviating the sufferings of people in Syria and pushing for a political settlement to the conflict are vitally important, the senior Iranian diplomat noted.
The diplomat also said it is necessary to push for national dialogue and democratic election in Syria.
‘Germany seeking Iran’s help to settle regional problems’
Muetzenich said in the light of positive political climate created about Iran at the international stage Germany is seeking to develop its ties with Tehran.
The German MP was indirectly referring to the interim nuclear agreement signed between Iran and the major powers and a rapprochement between Iran and the European Union since Hassan Rouhani won presidential election in Iran last summer.
Muetzenich, the foreign policy spokesperson and deputy parliamentary leader for foreign policy, defense and human rights in his parliamentary faction, said Berlin is also seeking help from Iran for a settlement of important regional problems including the Syrian crisis because Germany is of the opinion that the role of Iran is more important than the outcome of certain conferences about the region.
The fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran insists on political solution to the Syrian crisis is “very important” and similarly Germany is pursuing political solution to the conflict and also putting an end to the humanitarian crisis in the country, the German parliamentarian noted.
