Senior diplomats from Iran and the United Nations have stressed the importance of finding a final solution to the Syria crisis through the promotion of political dialog.

In a Saturday phone call, Iranian foreign minister’s senior assistant on special political affairs, Ali Asghar Khaji, and the United Nations special envoy for Syria, Geir Pedersen, discussed the latest developments in the Arab country.

The two sides also underlined the need for adherence to the political process in Syria and continuation of the Syrian Constitutional Committee’s activities to solve the war-ravaged country’s woes within the framework of respecting its national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In a meeting with Pedersen in Tehran back in February, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said a political solution is the only way to solve the Syria crisis, voicing Tehran’s readiness for cooperation with Damascus toward the goal.

Zarif expressed the Islamic Republic’s full readiness for any cooperation aimed at solving the Syria crisis in line with respect for the Arab country’s sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity.

During his visit to Tehran, the UN envoy also held talks with Khaji.

In September 2019, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres announced the creation of a Constitutional Committee on Syria that could pave the way for a political solution to the country’s conflict.

Composed of 50 members from the Damascus government, 50 opposition members, and 50 independent figures chosen by the United Nations, the committee is mandated, within the context of a UN-facilitated Geneva process, to draft and prepare for popular approval constitutional reforms paving the way for a political settlement in the post-war Arab country.
