Alaeddin Boroujerdi, Chairman of Iran’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said Islamic Republic of Iran opposes the imposition of any solution to Syrian government and people. Iran has always agreed and would agree with diplomatic solution to Syrian crisis though inter-Syrian dialogue.The inter-Syrian dialogue in Astana is not the first round of negations between Syrians and there had been similar talks in Damascus and Tehran in the past. Diplomatic solution does not include Daesh and al-Nosrah front and they should be confronted through military ways.
Syrian rebel groups have announced they are freezing discussions about joining peace talks sponsored by Russia because of “breaches” in a four-day-old cease-fire by the Syrian government. In a statement, the rebel groups said that any territorial advances by the army and Iran-backed militias would end the effort to restart peace talks as well as a fragile cease-fire brokered by Russia and Turkey that went into effect on December 30. “The regime and its allies have continued firing and committed many and large violations…threatening the lives of hundreds of thousands of people,” said the statement signed by about a dozen mainly moderate rebel groups operating under the umbrella of the Free Syrian Army.
An ongoing Turkey-backed military operation in northern Syria will not target Aleppo, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım has said, in an indirect message to Damascus after four Turkish troops were killed in an attack by the Syrian government on Nov. 24
