`Iran to back Syrian govt under any circumstances`

Last Updated: Monday, July 30, 2012 - 17:32

Tehran: Iran`s Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said Iran will continue to support the Syrian government under any circumstances, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported on Monday.

"As with the past, under any circumstances the Iranian nation and government will remain on the side of the Syrian government and nation," Larijani said in a meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem in Tehran on Sunday.

"A big global and regional conspiracy" has been hatched against Syria because they are upset over the "progressive positions" of the Syrian people and government, said Larijani, adding that the "prospects" are in favour of the Syrian government and people.

For his part, Muallem appreciated the support of Iran and said that "Syrians will never forget the brotherly support of the Iranian people”.

Muallem arrived in Tehran on Sunday and also held talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi, Secretary of Iran`s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The talks focused on the recent developments in Syria as well as bilateral relations between the two countries.
