Iran, Algeria Review Latest Regional Developments

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian and Algerian top diplomats Ali Akbar Salehi and Mourad Medelci in a meeting in New York discussed the latest important regional developments, specially the Syrian crisis.

Salehi and Medelci discussed regional developments, specially the Syrian crisis, and exchanged views on ways to solve the current problems in Syria, on the sidelined of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York on Tuesday.

The Iranian senior diplomat expounded on results of his visit to Cairo and Damascus and his efforts to end violence in Syria.

The Algerian foreign minister, for his part, expressed pleasure with Iran's recent efforts and contacts in the region in connection with Syrian crisis, and called it important and in direction of interests of the region and the Islamic world.

The two foreign ministers also expressed pleasure with close ties between Tehran and Algiers and cooperation in all fields, and discussed ways to strengthen mutual cooperation to the interests of both countries.

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.

Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.

In October 2011, 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 increasing unrests in Syria.
