A senior Iranian official has expressed the importance that terrorists cannot be turned into politicians because of the peace talks being hosted in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana.
“In [finding] any political solution to [the crisis in] Syria, the yesterday terrorists must not become the today politicians,” Iranian Parliament speaker’s special advisor on international affairs, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, said in a Saturday meeting with Syrian Ambassador to Tehran Adnan Mahmoud.
He did highlight however that the efforts of the peace talks on Syria are a “suitable opportunity” to rid the country of terrorism.
He also emphasized that Iran backs the sovereignty of the war torn country.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran backs territorial integrity and independence of Syria and regards national dialogue and people’s vote as the best political solution to the Syrian crisis,” the Iranian official pointed out.
