MOSCOW, November 18. /ITAR-TASS/. External players should stop support to militants in order to cease violence in Syria, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said at a meeting with Russian counterpart Mikhail Bogdanov on Monday.

“We think that the end to supporting armed groups in Syria is the major condition for the political settlement in Syria,” the Iranian diplomat said, adding “Only the Syrian people can achieve this goal.”

He expressed hope that the consultations at the Russian Foreign Ministry would be successful. “We’ll always hold very useful meetings,” he said.

The consultations will focus on the situation in other Middle East and North African countries, Abdollahian said.
