Iran, Syria urges for common ground for regional security, stability.
Iran and Syria Thursday asserted importance of creating a common
ground to achieving stability and security in the region.This came
during talks held between visiting Syrian Foreign Minister Waleed
Al-Muallem, who arrived here earlier today, and Iranian officials topped
by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over regional issues including the
situation in Bahrain.Al-Muallem and Ahmadinejad discussed the
"major regional issues" and underscored "necessity of
adopting appropriate means in the direction of peace and stability in
the region," state-run news agency (IRNA) said.It quoted
Ahmadinejad as saying that "lack of security in the region is not
in the interest of anyone, and the circumstances in the region double
the importance of vigilance against conspiracies and discord of
dominating powers." Ahmadinejad, who said Syria and Iran share
common views over regional and international issues, called on people of
the Middle East to be "vigilant against conspiracies and plans by
enemies of humanity." Secretary General of the National security
Council Saeed Jalili, during his meeting with Al-Muallem, said the
developments in the region were "popular movements about which
America and the zionist entity feel very worried." Al-Muallem,
during the two meetings, asserted "leading and very important role
of Iran in the region." He said Syria "sees Iran as a big
regional power with a key role in assisting peoples of the area."
The "enemies seek discord between the peoples and countries of the
region," said Al-Muallem.He said Tehran and Damascus could
"together employ the developments in favor of peoples in the
region." Al-Muallem also met with his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar
Salehi over the situation in Bahrain.
