TEHRAN, Iran, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), announced that, Saudi Arabia and Qatar cannot play any role, in the imminent Syria peace talks, Tasnim news agency reported.
In an interview with Tasnim on Saturday, the spokesman for IRGC, Ramezan Sharif, ruled out the possibility that Syrians would allow Saudi Arabia and Qatar to participate in the upcoming talks for peace in Syria.
The Saudi and Qatari regimes have been spearheading logistical, financial and media supports for terrorist groups, that have been wreaking havoc on Syria for six years, Sharif was quoted as saying.
However, Turkey can begin to play a positive role, by reviewing its previous policies and respecting Syria’s legitimate government, and abandon the policy of disintegration of Syria.
On Wednesday, Iran’s defence minister said that, Saudi Arabia should not be part of the Syria peace talks.
“They (Saudi Arabia) are seeking to topple the existing government in Syria. No talks should be allowed with those who are eager to do it. We must give them a decisive answer,” Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan was quoted as saying, by Tasnim.
Dehqan also said, the western coalition has no real intention to fight terrorists either in Syria or in Iraq.
“It’s them (western coalition), who have raised terrorists and they are interested in keeping them there,” Dehqan said.
“Maybe the coalition forces would like to see terrorists weakened, but certainly not destroyed, because those terrorists are their tool for destabilising this region and some other parts of the world,” he added.
Russia, Turkey and Iran are in talks, to resume peace talks between the Syrian government and the opposition, in Kazakhstan. Russia has proposed Saudi Arabia to join the negotiations.
