Shamkhani urges int’l community to support Iranian-Russian-Syrian anti-terrorism efforts
Tehran,– The trilateral meeting between Iran, Russia and Syria demonstrates their commitment in fighting terrorism, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said on Thursday.
“The continuation of support for the Syrian government and people is aimed at establishing stability and security in the country,” Shamkhani said during a meeting with the Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.
He lauded the courageous policies of Russian President Vladimir Putin in launching an all-out fight against terrorism in Syria, saying that “the approach adopted by the United States and its western and regional allies to the crisis in Syria shows that they are trying to create a margin of safety for the Zionist regime.”
Shamkhani, who is considered the higher coordinator of the Iranian political, military and security actions with Syria and Russia, described such actions taken by the US and its western and regional allies as diplomatic and media displays performed to affect the public opinion and achieve electoral and political ends.
He denounced comments and intrusive measures by some parties in addressing the crisis in Syria and insisted that no one but the Syrian people should decide their fate.
“Nobody but the Syrians themselves has the right to decide about the governing system and the future rulers of Syria,” he said.
The Iranian official asserted that the close, effective and increasing cooperation between Iran, Russia, Syria and the resistance pivot is the main factor of the defeat and annihilation of terrorism networks in the region.
“The international community should accept the reality and support priceless efforts made by Iran, Russia and Syria to fight terrorism,” Shamkhani said, urging the international community to mobilize all its capacities to punish and limit those states that boost Takfiri terrorists by their public and covert support.
Shamkhani underlined the continuation of ongoing efforts to replace dialogue with bloodshed.
“Unfortunately, some countries manipulate the political dialogue as a delay operation in order to boost terrorist groups to make up for their crushing defeats,” he added.
Shamkhani highlighted the necessity for stopping activities made by certain states to boost terrorist groups and involving them in negotiations.
