Iran ready to cooperate with other states in Syria reconstruction: FM Zarif
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif calls the establishment of a ceasefire in Syria a top priority in efforts to end the crisis there, saying Iran is ready for cooperation with other states to help reconstruct the violence-torn Arab country.
Speaking at an international conference on Syria in Brussels on Wednesday, Zarif said Iran has already begun its cooperation with Syria in rebuilding the country and is ready to interact with other countries in this area.
Senior representatives from 80 countries attended the two-day conference co-hosted by EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
Zarif further described aid delivery to Syrian civilians as a matter of great urgency, saying if relief operations take place without preconditions and political motives, not only will they improve the conditions of the displaced, but will also facilitate efforts to achieve peaceful solutions to the conflict.
