Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus Wednesday, and called on regional countries to “fight terrorism and extremism.”
“I say to the other [regional] players and to our neighbours that now is the time to care about the truth, answer the aspirations of the Syrian people and work to fight terrorism, extremism, and sectarianism,” the top diplomat said.
He did not give details on his discussions with Assad on finding a solution to Syria’s four-year war, only describing the exchange of views as “good.”
An Iranian foreign ministry spokesman had said a new Iranian peace plan was based on “respect for the Syrian people’s legitimate right to reforms and to decide their own future.”
