Iran backs Annan's peace plan on Syria: spokesman
Tehran, July 24 (Xinhua-ANI): Iran supports six-point peace plan of the UN-Arab League joint envoy for Syria Kofi Annan as a means to move out of the Syrian crisis, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Tuesday.
Talking to reporters during his weekly press briefing, Mehmanparast dismissed some media reports that Annan's peace plan on Syria has failed.
Annan's six-point peace plan emphasizes political and diplomatic settlement of the crisis in the conflict-torn Arab country.
Mehmanparast said that foreign interference in internal affairs of Syria is a main factor to hinder the implementation of Annan's plan.
Syria has been witnessing violent clashes since March 201 when anti-government protests broke out in the country. The unrest has claimed the lives of some 12,000 people, including a large number of government troops, according to the most recent UN tally. (Xinhua-ANI)
