Saudi troops in Syria very dangerous: Iran official

Iran's top security official has warned that a potential troop deployment by regional countries to Syria would be a “very dangerous” decision.

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani made the remark at a meeting with visiting Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Tehran.

Saudi Arabia has expressed readiness to contribute special forces to a US-led coalition that is purportedly hitting Daesh in Syria. Bahrain and the UAE have also hinted at similar deployments.

“Although claims made by these countries are by no means proportionate to their military capabilities, the potential presence of ground troops without the legitimate consent or request of the Syrian government amounts to an interventionist and highly dangerous decision with unfathomable security repercussions for all the regional countries as well as Europe,” Shamkhani said.

Any military incursion would be “a step backward and disregardful of all the efforts that have been undertaken to resolve the [Syrian] crisis,” he added.

“There is no military solution to Syria’s crisis; and the establishment of calm and stability in this country is only possible through inter-Syrian dialog as a means of realizing the Syrian people’s will and demands,” the Iranian official said.

Addressing the Greek premier, the Iranian official said, “Greece has been on the forefront of... the issue of Syrian and Iraqi refugees... and clearly feels the several security and economic problems resulting from it.”

Greece has been serving as the entry point for more than a million refugees who have been fleeing war and misery in the Middle East for more than a year now.

Tsipras, for his part, asserted that Athens was leading an “independent policy” vis-à-vis the Syrian issue.
