Iranian Parliament’s Vice-Speaker: Iran Does Not Officially Recognize the Geneva-2 Talks

Vice-Speaker of Majlis (Parliament) Hojjat al-Islam Mohammad-Hassan Abu-Torabifard on Tuesday said that Iran does not officially recognize the West’s Geneva 2 talks on Syria and does not insist on attending it.

According to IRNA, he said: “Vigilance of the Syrian and Muslim nations has cost the US and the west consecutive failure.”

Abu-Torabifard said Iran has proposed two basic principles as the key to Syria problem, including (1) the stopping of arms shipment to rebels and the exit of foreign fighters’ and (2) non-interference in the country’s internal affairs as well as the Syrian nation’s right to decide their fate.

The MP added: “Our country might not be physically present in the talks but our political strategy and idea on the betterment of Syria’s conditions do dominate the outcome of the meeting.”

He concluded that the two principles can be the only acceptable and workable solutions.
