Tunisian Envoy Stresses Opposition to Foreign Meddling in Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tunisian Ambassador to Iran Mohammad al-Hasayeri said that Tunis, like Tehran, believes that foreign interference in Syria will further complicate the situation in the Arab country.

"The problem in Syria has complicated at present and Tunisia believes that reforms can play an effective role at the present juncture," Hasayeri told FNA on Monday.

"We share Iran's view which stresses opposition to foreign meddling in Syria because foreign interference will only complicate the problems," the diplomat reiterated.

He noted that the Syrian people should decide their fate, and stated, "I believe that resolving the problem in Syria by outside actors is impossible. That is the reason why the issue has become so time-consuming and failed to yield result."

In related remarks, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said yesterday that the Zionist regime of Israel is behind the current plots against Syria, and called on the regional states to act wisely in their policies towards developments in Syria.

It is surprising that when the Zionist regime seeks sabotage and lawlessness in Syria, certain governments in the region put seal of approval on such conspiracy, Salehi stated, speaking at a joint press conference with visiting Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem here in Tehran on Sunday.

Salehi further advised countries in the region to adopt rationality in dealing with the issue.

It is not possible to foresee the unpredictable consequences of such measures which might engulf other countries in the region too, he warned.

The remarks by the Iranian foreign minister came after media reports said Saudi Arabia and Qatar in collaboration with the US and Britain have set up a secret command center in Turkey to supply the terrorists in Syria with military and communications aid to seize control of Aleppo city from the Syrian government.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

In October, calm was eventually restored in the Arab state after President Assad started a reform initiative in the country, but Israel, the US and its Arab allies are seeking hard to bring the country into chaos through any possible means. Tel Aviv, Washington and some Arab capitals have been staging various plots in the hope of stirring unrests in Syria once again.

The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Bashar al-Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.?
