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.

Obama, ISIS, Kissinger and Clausewitz: American Military Force in Religious Conflicts

Sep 9 2014 6:59am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

It took Henry Kissinger to articulate the sense of chaos and anarchic violence that is spreading across the world: The World Order is crumbling. Beheadings, mass murder of civilians, international borders vanishing, and the inability of political institutions to manage conflict are smashing the carefully constructed post-WWII universe. There's a reason, and historical precedent, and neither bodes well for a swift return to m ...

Plane with Americans aboard grounded in Iran

(NBC NEWS) A charter flight was grounded in Iran with as many as 100 Americans on board Friday due to a “bureaucratic issue,” according to the U.S. State Department. The Boeing 737, which routinely flies contractors from Afghanistan to Dubai, was delayed by three hours, but the airline did not refile a flight plan with Iranian authorities, according to a U.S. official.
