Advisor: US Major Obstructer of Peace in Syria

Senior Advisor to the Iranian Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that Washington is after materializing its malevolent agenda in Syria, adding that accordingly the US prevents different groups from reaching an agreement with the Syrian government.
In a Sunday meeting with Syrian Ambassador to Tehran Adnan Mahmoud, Amir Abdollahian said the US is only seeking its own malevolent goals in its game with the Syrian Kurds, adding that Washington is the main hurdle to dialogue and concord between the Syrian government and the Kurds.

“The Kurds are a part of the reality of the Syrian society with an effective role and political participation in the country. The Americans are only seeking their own malevolent goals in their game with the Syrian Kurds and are the main hurdle to dialogue and concord between the Syrian government and the Kurds,” he added.

During the meeting, the Iranian official voiced hope for the realization of stability and security in all parts of Syria under the guidance and wisdom of the country’s president, authorities and the people.

He also highlighted Iran’s all-out support to Syria.

Amir Abdollahian deemed the continued presence and concentration of terrorists in Idlib and the interventions of US military in parts of Syrian territory a threat to regional peace and security, voicing Iran’s support for the efforts of the UN special envoy for Syria.

“We believe that the UN must end the US’ unwelcome military presence in Syria. We consider any military act in Syria without coordination with the Syrian sovereignty in violation of the UN charter,” he added.

The Syrian ambassador, for his part, highlighted that Iran, with its strategic deterrent policy against enemies, has proved its good intentions to the world.

“The US’ economic terrorism against Iran has hit a dead end, as we are witness to Iran’s achievements in various fields despite certain expectations,” he added.

The two sides then reviewed the latest regional and international developments and exchanged views on common political issues and the importance of regional cooperation.

Earlier this month, Turkey and the US reached an agreement on the establishment of a joint operation center in the Northern part of Syria, in the wake of Ankara’s threats to launch an operation against the US-sponsored Kurdish militants to push them away from the Turkish border.

“Talks between Turkish and the US military delegations regarding establishment of a safe zone in the North of Syria were concluded,” the Turkish Defense Ministry said in a statement.

However, a source at Syria's Foreign Ministry said that the US-Turkey agreement amounted to “blatant aggression” against the country’s territorial integrity and was a “flagrant violation” of the international law and the UN Charter.

“This agreement has very clearly exposed the US-Turkish partnership in the aggression against Syria, which serves the interest of the Israeli occupation entity and the Turkish expansionist ambitions,” the source said.

Turkey considers the US-backed Kurdish militants operating in Northeastern Syria as terrorists. The Turkish government has, since 2016, launched two military operations inside Syria against the Kurds and has threatened a third if they fail to leave east of the Euphrates.

Damascus has repeatedly called on the US and Turkey to end their illegal military presence and activities on Syrian soil.

Also on Sunday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani lashed out at superpowers, particularly the US, for meddling in the internal affairs of the Middle East and Latin America, stressing that the two regions are having problems because of trans-regional interferences.
