Syria Welcomes Agreement Between Iran and P5+1 Countries

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that Syria welcomes the agreement which was struck in Geneva between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the P5+1 countries.


The source said Syria considers the agreement as "historic" and maintains the interests of the Iranian brotherly people, adding that the agreement recognizes the right of the Iranian people to use nuclear power for peaceful purposes.


Syria believes that reaching such agreement is evidence that political solutions to the crises in the region are the best means to ensure security and stability, rather than foreign intervention and threats of force, the source said.


In a statement to SANA, the source said the agreement paves the way for international efforts to free the Middle East of all Weapons of Mass Destruction, particularly after Syria's accession to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC).


The source added that Israel remains the only obstacle preventing this objective because it is the only side that possesses nuclear weapons and still refuses put its nuclear facilities under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).


"Syria congratulates the Iranian brotherly people and their wise leadership on this historic achievement which reiterates Iran's role in the stability and security of the region," the source said.
