During the meeting, Zarif briefed Mikad on what took place in Vienna last week regarding the crisis in Syria, stressing the need to continue coordination until the crisis is resolved, and asserting that the Syrian people are the ones who will decide their future, while other statesí task is to facilitate inter-Syrian dialogue.
