Syria's insecurity to jeopardise entire region: Ahmadinejad
Tehran: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday that insecurity of Syria will jeopardise the whole region.
"If Syria becomes insecure, the security of other regional countries will be jeopardised, and this will threaten the entire region," reported Xinhua citing Ahmadinejad at a meeting with Essam el-Haddad, advisor to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.
Ahmadinejad called for stepped-up efforts to resolve the ongoing unrest in Syria through understanding and dialogue.
Any new government born out of war and conflict in Syria would mean the continuation of insecurity for a long time to come, the Iranian president said.
El-Haddad, for his part, said Egypt calls for fundamental measures to end the ongoing bloodshed and conflict in Syria as soon as possible.
Countries, such as Iran and Egypt, shoulder the responsibility to settle the crisis in Syria and prevent foreign interference in the country, he added.
