FM Zarif condemns United States destructive role in region

Zarif also stressed that cooperation between Russian, Iran and Turkey in the Astana process was producing results.

According to the statement, they expressed their determination to increase tripartite coordination on the basis of the joint statements issued by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Russian and Turkish counterparts Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, respectively, in November 2017 and April 2018. Russia, along Turkey and Iran, is one of the guarantor states of the Syrian ceasefire.

The three ministers reiterated their commitment to a peaceful resolution of the seven-year war in Syria, and dismissed criticism from some other nations that the Astana negotiations, which the three nations kick-started, were somehow harmful for the UN-sponsored negotiations in Geneva.

The agreement between the three countries is aimed to promote peace in Syria as the recent airstrikes by the USA and it's allies has brought cause for concern. "We discussed the preparation to the ninth worldwide meeting on Syria in Astana which we will hold in the middle of May", he said.

The so-called Astana process the three countries are pursuing on the issue of Syria has been rejected by almost all of Syrian opposition groups and the UN. He noted that the White house statement of support for the territorial integrity of Syria is "just words".




Russian, Iranian and Turkish foreign ministers on Saturday talked up their successes in brokering a political solution to the Syrian conflict at a meeting in Moscow.

"We have already said that the illegal attack on Syria on April 14 that the United States, Great Britain and France carried out before experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had even started their work, caused a setback in efforts to advance the political process", he said.

Meanwhile, Russia says the attack was staged to discredit Assad. It surrendered its chemical stockpile in 2013 to a mission led by the OPCW and the UN.

"This is the only efficacious worldwide initiative", Cavusoglu said.
