January 17, 2022

Iran has called for lifting of embargoes on Syria and addressing the refugee issue to resolve the crisis in the country.

The demand was made by Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian at a meeting with the visiting UN Special Envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen in Tehran. He said without considering the issue of refugees and the sanctions efforts for ending Syrian crises cannot go forward in the right direction.

He blamed the illegal presence of US forces as well as the Israeli attacks on Syria for disrupting the political settlement of conflict in Syria.
