Tehran, SANA – Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem discussed on Tuesday with Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hussein Amir Abdollahian bilateral relations, counter-terrorism efforts, and the latest developments in the region.

“We have discussed issues of mutual concern…viewpoints were identical on the topics discussed,” al-Moallem said after the meeting, adding that any upcoming initiative will be done in coordination with the Syrian leadership and officials.”

For his part, Abdullahian described talks between the two sides as “positive and constructive”; affirming that Iran defends and strongly supports its allies as well as it goes ahead in its policy which backs the Syrian government and people.

“The only solution to the crisis in Syria is the political one,” Abdullahian said, adding “Those who were seeking to change regime in Syria reached to an outcome that they were mistaken.”

On combating terrorism, Abdullahian said that Syria’s resistance against terrorism is great; adding that Iran’s support to Syria in this domain prevented the terrorists from achieving any success in the region or expanding the map of their terrorism.

“Anything relevant to the Iranian initiative concerning crisis in Syria will be discussed and coordinated with the Syrian officials,” Abdullahian said, affirming that this initiative will bring good to Syria and reflect the opinion of the Syrian people.
