Iran’s ties with Russia will help resolve Syrian crisis: lawmaker
A senior Iranian lawmaker said Wednesday that Astana talks on Syrian reconciliation are an important step toward a peaceful settlement of the Syrian crisis.

He added that since the beginning of the conflict in Syria Tehran had considered it to be fueled by the United States, their Western European allies, and several Middle Eastern countries, which had sought to change the power in the country.

“Three meetings in Astana have already taken place, and we believe that they are fruitful and valuable steps on the road to the peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran, said during a video link-up between Russian and Iranian lawmakers organized by the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.

“We made a decision to create a military committee of Russia, Iran and Iraq in Baghdad and Damascus. The operation of this committee is possible because Russia and Iran are carrying out policies aimed at finding the political solution to the Syrian conflict,” the Iranian parliamentarian stressed.

According to Sputnik news agency Boroujerdi expressed Tehran’s gratitude to Russia for its contribution to the creation of the Russia-Turkey-Iran trilateral format.

According to the lawmaker, Iran is concerned by the intensification of terrorists’ activities in the Middle East.

He expressed hope that the relations between Russia and Iran on the international arena would continue, which would contribute to solving complex global issues.
