Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs, Hossein Amir Abdullahian, hailed Syria's cooperation with the UN investigation mission, stressing that the "mechanism of solving the crisis in Syria is merely political based on a comprehensive national dialogue."
Meeting the UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Jeffrey Feltman, Abdullahian said that some sides' support to the political opposition in coincidence with their support to the takfiri terrorist gangs in Syria is a "strategic mistake."
He expressed Iran's support to the UN political initiatives for holding an international conference on Syria.
For his part, Feltman expressed hope that the upcoming international conference on Syria will succeed , describing the current situation in the region, particularly in Syria as "dangerous".
In the same context, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Abbas Araqchi, warned against the repercussions of any wrong interpretation of the situation in Syria as it will complicate the situation in the whole region.
In a statement, Araqchi reiterated that dialogue and the political understanding on a peaceful solution are the only way to solve the crisis in Syria, stressing that settling the crisis through military means is impossible.
In response to the U.S. Defense Secretary, Chuck Hage, on Washington's preparations for a military action on Syria, Araqchi said, "talks about a military attack on Syria, without a Security Council's resolution is very dangerous and could lead to tensions."
He pointed out there are documents that prove that the terrorist groups in Syria are the side which used the chemical weapons.
