MOSCOW, August 17./TASS/. Iran supports Russia’s stance on Syria, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said after talks with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
"Our states have a common position on the settlement of the Syrian crisis," he said. "The Syrians must themselves decide their fate, their future, while the foreign states should only make this easier," the Iranian diplomat added.
"We believe that the only way to settle the Syrian crisis is political," he confirmed. "We have a common view on this issue with the Russian Federation, and this similarity of positions will continue," he said.
