Iranian MPs Head to Syria to Meet Assad
Tehran – A member of Iran’s Majlis says an Iranian parliamentary delegation has left Tehran for Damascus to hold talks with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on the latest developments in the Arab country.
Mansour Haqiqatpour, who sits on the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Iran’s Majlis said “During the visit, the latest developments in Syria and solutions to the current situation in the country will be discussed.” He added on Saturday the team is headed by chairman of the committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi and two other members.
Haqiqatpour noted that the committee is also scheduled to discuss the ongoing crisis in Syria this week. Last Wednesday, spokesman for the committee Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said that the delegation will travel to Damascus under any circumstances, even if a military attack is launched against the Arab state. Naqavi Hosseini stated that the mission aims to assess the situation in Syria, and to voice Tehran’s support for the Syrian government and nation following US war threats against the Arab country.
