Iran FM says mercenaries wreaking havoc on Syria
Iran Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi says foreign-backed “mercenaries” are spreading chaos in Syria. - “It is clear to everyone that those committing atrocities in Syria are mercenaries who have come from outside Syria and have been armed and are fighting against the Syrian government,” Salehi said Wednesday in a joint press conference with his Omani counterpart Yousef bin Alawi. “All power plants, silos, factories, institutes and organizations serving people have been destroyed by these terrorists,” the Iranian minister added. Salehi noted that people are the ones suffering from the problems caused by the the Syrian crisis in the past two years. “However, the [present] conditions are such that the people are currently standing against the mercenaries, and wherever the government retakes an area [from militants] the people support it themselves,” he said. The minister added that the “real opposition” in Syria is seeking a peaceful solution to the crisis in the country.
