Tehran, YJC. A high-ranking parliamentary delegation has left the country for Syria and Lebanon.

On Saturday morning a delegation of three lawmakers, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the Boroujerd representative to Majlis and Chairman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Fathollah Hosseini, and Javad Karimi Qudoosi, left Iran for visits to Syria and Lebanon.

Providing comments on the objectives of their trip, Boroujerdi said "The aim for this delegation by going to Syria and Lebanon is the opposition of the Islamic Republic of Iran to all sorts of attack on Syria and the massacre of the country’s people, as well as the condemnation of chemical attacks, which are a serious threat not only to the Syrian people, but to the whole world.”

He then asserted "According to information received which show that terrorists are equipped with chemical arms, there was the possibility and it was a serious threat that due to defeats on the military stage they might resort to chemical weapons.”
