‘Zionist regime sowing discord among regional countries’

iran’s foreign ministry spokesman ramin mehmanparast

Iran Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has warned against Zionist regime’s schemes to create rift among the regional countries.

According to Press TV, Mehmanparast told reporters on Thursday in the Armenian capital city of Yerevan: “Creating discord among the regional countries is a sedition followed by the Zionist regime of Israel and the regional countries must be careful not to be entrapped by such sedition.”‌

The Iranian diplomat called for regional cooperation as the best solution to resolve the regional crises, noting, “This is while, expansion of relations among the regional countries is not to the benefit of some of the transregional countries and currents, and the Zionist regime is one of these currents which sees its interests in creating tension and rift among regional states.”‌

Touching upon the Syrian crisis, Mehmanparast pointed out, “We defend the rights of the nations and we consider democracy and election as good criteria for settling the crisis in Syria.”‌

He added: “The clashes must end in Syria and elections must be held. Iran respects the votes of the Syrian nation.”‌ 

Mehmanparast said: “Unfortunately, the Western countries do not favor holding elections in Syria, because they are afraid of the outcome of the votes in the country. They merely seek their own interests in this country.”‌
