Iran Promoting Political Solution to Syrian Civil War

Iran, a close ally of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, is trying to promote a political solution to the Syrian civil war.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs, said on Sunday that the Islamic Republic had prepared a four-point plan to end the conflict, which he had discussed with the UN-Arab League envoy to Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi.

The details of the Iranian plan were not disclosed, but Amir-Abdollahian said it deals with the questions of sovereignty, territorial integrity, independence and the will of the Syrian people and uses mechanisms such as democracy and elections.
