Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is due to confer on Tehran’s Syrian initiative and its recent nuclear agreement with the world powers during his regional tour, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

“During the visit, Iran’s new plan to help settle the problem in Syria as well as the dimensions and results of the nuclear talks will be discussed,” Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maziyeh Afkham said.

She underlined Iran’s principled policies on the crisis in Syria, and said respect for the Syrian nation’s legitimate right of self-determination, opposition to the meddling of foreigners who seek to take revenge from Syria due to the Damascus government’s independent policies and support for the resistance front, and opposition to the instrumental use of terrorism for achieving political goals are among Tehran’s policies.

Afkham also said that Iran’s four-article plan to settle the crisis in Syria has been compiled based on the aforementioned policies and is being updated now, adding that the plan will be presented after consultations with the Syrian government and other influential actors.

In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian announced that Tehran would present an updated version of its plan to the UN to settle the crisis in Syria.

“Iran’s updated initiative on Syria will be presented to the UN secretary general,” Amir Abdollahian said in an interview with al-Mayadeen news channel.

Yet, he dismissed reports on the details of Iran’s updated plan as media speculations, and said, “The plan will be declared and presented to the UN secretary general after precise consultations between Tehran and Damascus.”

Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 230,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.

Last year, Iran proposed a four-article plan to end the crisis in Syria.
