Medvedev, Ahmadinejad oppose Foreign Interference in Syria

(DP-News - agencies)

MOSCOW- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke out on Wednesday against foreign interference in Syrian internal affairs, the Kremlin said.

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made the remarks during their phone conversation.

The Kremlin said the two leaders had discussed the "dramatic situation" in Syria and both pressed for a peaceful settlement to the crisis by Syrians themselves.

Medvedev and Ahmadinejad discussed the “dramatic situation” in Syria in a telephone conversation, where both presidents “urged the resolution of the current crisis by Syrian people using only peaceful means and without any foreign interference,” the Kremlin said in a statement.



“The sides agreed that the main goal today…is to prevent a civil war in the country, which may destabilize the situation in the whole region,” the statement said.

They also pointed out the importance of continuing political and socio-economic reforms in Syria and agreed that the main goal is to prevent a civil war in the country, which may destabilize the situation in the whole region, the Kremlin added.

According to the press service, Medvedev also had discussed the Syrian issue with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and King of Saudi Arabia Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz by phone.



Earlier in the month Russia and China vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Syria that called on President Bashar al-Assad to step down. Thirteen of the council’s 15 members voted in favor of the resolution to help stop the violence in Syria.

Russia said the resolution was “unbalanced” and reflected “tendencies that are cause for our concern: attempts to isolate the Syrian leadership, reject any contacts with it and impose a political settlement formula from outside.”



Syria has been the scene of continuous anti-government protestsfor almost a year. According to the UN, more than 5,400 people have died in the unrest. The Syrian authorities said that over 2,000 military and law enforcement officials were killed in clashes with well-armed militants.

class war

To Sirius: it would be nice to believe that people power will prevail in Syria and Iran but this will hardly happen with the help of the western capitalist countries which are at the doorstep of depression and are sharpening their knives for the coming inter-imperialist struggle for access to markets and resources. nor will it happen with the help of Iran, Russia or China. only an international working class movement against the respective elites of the belligerent sides can end the suffering of the Syrian people and rid us of the prospect of world war and nuclear annihilation, by overthrowing the system that produces these atrocities.

Iran will soon be in the same situation

It's obvious that Iran's position is based on what will be happening sooner rather than later in that country. The government will face a similar revolt and they want the world to do nothing about that. The power belongs to the people, and the people want Siria's government out.
