Iran, UN-Arab envoy want political solution for Syria

Oct 26 2013, 12:46pm CDT | by IANS

Tehran, Oct 26 (IANS) Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and UN-Arab League joint special representative to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi Saturday called for finding a political solution to the ongoing Syrian crisis.

Tehran, Oct 26 — Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and UN-Arab League joint special representative to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi Saturday called for finding a political solution to the ongoing Syrian crisis.

Brahimi, who arrived in Tehran Saturday, expressed hope that with the help of Syria's neighbours, "we could mobilize all parties to solve the Syrian issue", Xinhua reported.

"What is happening in Syria is a humanitarian crisis," said Brahimi, adding that "crimes against Syrian people by all sides should be stopped".

Also, Zarif said "conflicts in Syria can only be solved by the Syrian people ... and we can only offer assistance" for political solutions.

About Iran's role in the upcoming Geneva II talks on Syria, Brahimi said participation of Iran is "natural and necessary".

"If invited to the Geneva II talks, Iran will attend the conference with the aim to find a political solution" to the Syrian problem, said Zarif.

On Oct 7, US State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said the US might agree with Iran's participation in the conference if Tehran backs the "Geneva I Communique," which called for a transitional government in Syria.

The US and some western countries have accused Iran of supporting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the civil war and called Iran "part of the problem".

Iran has said that it will not accept any precondition to its attending the Geneva II meeting.

Being the main regional ally of the Syrian government, Iran has condemned foreign intervention and "terrorists' involvement" in the Syrian conflict.

(The Hill) Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Friday urged the Obama administration not to consider reducing its demands in negotiations to end Iran’s nuclear program. An Associated Press report cited diplomats who suggested the U.S. might allow Iran to keep nearly half of its centrifuges and reduce its stock of uranium gas. Meadows said that the U.S. shouldn’t settle for anything less than Iran discontinuing use of all of its centrifuges used for nuclear production. ...

Pro-Iranian Rebels On Verge Of Taking Over In Yemen

Sep 22 2014 12:51pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Pro-Iranian Shia rebels in Yemen, who have overrun the American-friendly Yemeni government, has announced  a ceasefire with government forces. The group has already sacked both the Defense and Finance ministries in the capitol of Sanaa.  If Yemen falls to the pro-Iranian rebels (probably will), Iran will then have a strategic footfold in that region, and could pose a major problem for the United States, as they could restrict shipping lanes between the G ...
