"Moscow and Tehran will actively help Syria and Iraq in their fight on terrorism and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL),” Amir Abdullahian asserted after his meeting in the Russian capital on Tuesday with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Bogdanov, who is also the special representative of the Russian president for the Middle Eastern and African Affairs.
The Iranian diplomat emphasized that Iran and Russia provide real support for Syria and Iraq in their fight against terrorism.
Referring to the two countries' efforts to come up with a solution to crisis in Syria, Abdullahian said the four-article plan proposed by Iran to resolve the Syrian crisis, and the ideas developed by Moscow come with common principles.
He added that Syria's political future has to be decided by the very people of the war-stricken country.
The Iranian deputy FM also voiced doubts over the sincerity of the US-led coalition against Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and asserted that Washington is not serious about the campaign against the group.
