Iranian Foreign Ministry reiterates Iran’s principled stance towards Syria


Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham expressed Wednesday her country’s principled and supportive stances towards Syria in its war against terrorism and adopting the political solution to the crisis in it.

“Our stance towards the developments in Syria is crystal-clear and transparent,” Afkham said in a weekly press conference, reiterating that the irresponsible support to the armed terrorist groups in Syria led to the spreading of terrorism in the region.
