شمخانی

Tehran (ISNA) - Russian President's Special Envoy on Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev met with Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani, discussing the latest regional and international developments.

During the meeting both sides stressed on further boosting of relations between Iran and Russia in defense, security, political and economic fields, exchanging views on the latest regional developments, especially Turkey’s military offensive in northeast Syria.

Referring to US’ mysterious plan to revive Daesh and developing insecurity in West Asia, Shamkhani emphasized the need for vigilance and cooperation among regional countries to confront with measures that could lead to instability and insecurity.

Noting that double standard in terrorism is unacceptable by any country, he said, “Solving tensions in Idlib must be among top priorities in fight against terrorism”.

Reiterating Iran’s disagreement with Turkey’s military operation in Syria, Shamkhani insisted, “Any action that leads to intensify insecurity and escalates the crisis in the region must be halted immediately”.

“Regional unrest must be resolved only through diplomacy between Syrian-Syrian and Yemeni-Yemeni parties,” he went on to say.

He stressed that any offensive and imposing war against regional countries would be an action in line with destructive policies by US and Zionist regime in the region.

Addressing the recent attack on Iranian oil tanker in the Red Sea, he named sowing insecurity in international waterways as one of the main reasons for regional crises, saying, “Iran will give a harsh response to those seeking insecurity and unrest in the region”.

Lavrentiev, for his turn, admitted that Iran-Russia cooperation can prevent development and revival of terrorism and will provide stability and security in the region.
