Iran reiterates need for resolution of crisis in Idlib with minimum human losses

The Iranian foreign ministry dismissed speculations that the country’s military troops will participate in the Syrian army’s military operations against the terrorists in Idlib, and said Iran will only have advisors in the war torn state.

“Iran’s policy is supporting Syria’s territorial integrity and we hope that the country will be purged of terrorists soon,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi told reporters in Tehran on Monday.

He underlined the necessity for considering humanitarian issues in military operations against the terrorists in Idlib, and said, “We insist that the problems in Idlib will be resolved in a way that no damage and harms will be inflicted on the people and we have discussed this issue in contacts with Russia and Turkey.”

Qassemi dismissed any possibility for the partnership of Iranian soldiers in the military operations in Syria, and said, “We have declared many times that we play an advisory role in Syria.”

In relevant remarks earlier this month, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif announced that the Syrian army and its allies would make their utmost efforts to reduce harms to civilians during the imminent military operations against the terrorist groups in Idlib.
