Zarif wants cooperation of Mullah regime with Arabia over Syria

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran and Saudi Arabia should be able to work together to help end conflicts in Syria and Yemen, after successfully cooperating over Lebanon last year.

Addressing the World Economic Forum on Wednesday, Zarif said:"I do not see any reason why Iran and Saudi Arabia should have hostile policies towards each other. We can in fact work together to put an end to miserable conditions of the people in Syria and Yemen and Bahrain and elsewhere in the region."

"Iran and Saudi Arabia were able to actually stop impeding the process of the presidential election in Lebanon. We have a success story," Zarif added.

Zarif on Tuesday announced that Iran rejected the US participation in Astana talks in Syria although the Russian foreign minister extended an invitation to Washington to take part in the talks to resolve Syria conflict.
