Iran not to allow foreigners to decide for Syria: Minister

Jun 22 2013, 10:00pm CDT | by

Tehran, June 23 (IANS) Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi has said that his country will not allow any foreign nation to decide for the Syrian people, after a "Friends of Syria" meeting in Doha pledged to arm the Syrian rebels.

Tehran, June 23 — Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi has said that his country will not allow any foreign nation to decide for the Syrian people, after a "Friends of Syria" meeting in Doha pledged to arm the Syrian rebels.

"The Islamic republic will not allow, as it has proved, any foreign prescription to be imposed on the Syrians," Xinhua quoted Salehi as saying.

He said Iran was against arming Syrian opposition groups as such a move will "prolong the crisis, sabotage and bloodshed".

Iran and the West have accused each other of meddling in Syria's two-year-old conflict.

At a joint press conference with visiting Lebanese Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour, Salehi said both regional and non-regional states should help Syrians find a solution to the crisis themselves.

Earlier, the Friends of Syria meeting in Doha demanded Iran to stop its interference in Syria.

The meeting, attended by nations supporting the Syrian opposition, also urged Lebanon's Hezbollah Shiite movement to stop fighting alongside forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The Strangest Disaster on the Planet Right Now

SYRIA-UN-LEBANON-ASSAD
Who even knows what to call it? The Iraq War or the Iraq-Syrian War would be far too orderly for what's happening, so it remains a no-name conflict that couldn't be deadlier or more destabilizing -- and it's in the process of internationalizing in unsettling ways. Think of it as the strangest disaster on the planet right now. After all, when was the last time that the U.S. and Russia ended up on the same side in a conflict? You would have to go back almo ...
