Newscast Media TEHRAN—Iran has called rumors that Tehran embraces an overthrow or regime change of Syria "sheer lies" and has pledged its steadfast support for the Syrian people and Bashar al-Assad, Fars News Agency reports.


According to FNA, Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Wednesday that Iran's stance on Syria is "clear and transparent", and stressed the recent claims that Iran has consented to the fall of the Syrian president are "untrue".

"Supporting the Syrian people and Bashar Assad's reforms has always been at the center of Iran's attention," Abdollahian underscored.

He pointed to the meeting of the so-called Contact Group on Syria in Cairo, and reminded that the group has agreed on "political solution to Syria, cessation of hostilities and stop of arms shipments to rebel groups, negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups, and democratic decision-making about the future of Syrian by the country's people and through election".

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is serious about defending Syria's national sovereignty as (part of) an axis of resistance against the Zionist regime and will stay on the side of that nation," Boroujerdi said in a meeting with head of the Syrian parliament's Foreign Affairs Commission Fadiya Daib and head of the National Security Commission Mohammad Sobhi Abu al-Shamat here in Tehran.

Iran's Ahmadinejad is currently in New York attending his last UN General Assembly meeting as president. When asked in an interview yesterday by Al-Monitor whether he will retire from politics after his presidency he replied, "Of course, I cannot be away from a political atmosphere. Wherever I am, politics will follow me."
