Syria welcomes Geneva agreement between Iran and P5+1 countries
An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that Syria welcomes the agreement which was struck in Geneva between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the P5+1 countries.
The source added that Syria considers the agreement as "historic" and it maintains the interests of the Iranian brotherly people, adding that the agreement recognizes the right of the Iranian people to use the nuclear power for peaceful purposes.
Syria believes that reaching such agreement is evidence that political solutions to the crises of the region are the best means to ensure the security and stability of the region far from foreign intervention and threats to use force, the source said.
In a statement to SANA, the source added that the agreement paves the way for international efforts to free the Middle East of all weapons of mass destruction, particularly after Syria's accession to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), and Israel remains the only obstacle preventing this objective from being achieved because it is the only side that possesses nuclear weapons and rejects to put its nuclear facilities under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"Syria congratulates the Iranian brotherly people and their wise leadership on this historic achievement which reiterates Iran's role in the stability and security of the region," the source concluded.
Information Minister: Agreement means victory of dialogue over threats
Meanwhile, Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group countries "is a victory for the logic of dialogue and political work over the logic of threats, ultimatums, challenges and wars".
Speaking to the Syrian TV by phone, al-Zoubi said the agreement will yield fruits once it is signed and will reflect on each sincere international effort seeking stability and security in the region.
He referred to countries and entities which felt threatened and panicked by the agreement, citing Saudi Arabia and Israel, which proves these sides' preference for the logic of force, threat and interference over the logic of dialogue that is evident in their coordination regarding the events in Syria.
Iran and the P5+1 group struck an agreement on Iran's nuclear program that recognizes Iran's right to enrich uranium and continue its activities in the Iranian nuclear facilities after long negotiations held in Geneva.
