all partyLebanon’s foreign minister has called on “influential parties” involved in Syrian crisis not to set any pre-condition for attending in the upcoming Geneva II conference.

“All players should take part in the conference” aimed at ending the conflict in Syria, Adnan Mansour

told al-Alam in an exclusive interview in Tehran.

“If any party planning to attend the conference, it should not oppose the participation of other group, because the conference would get nowhere,” he said.

Mansour added that his country took “an impartial role on Syrian crisis” that “it spared the country from much more hazardous damage.”

Referring to his country’s non-interventionist policy in Arab state’s internal affairs, he said that “Lebanon is unwilling to turn into a conduit for arms shipment against Syria.”

“Military hardware and armed men move in and out of Lebanon, but it doesn’t mean necessarily that the move in endorsed officially by the government,” he stressed.

“Since Syria is a member of the United Nations, Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), Beirut has adopted no hostile approach towards Damascus and totally rejects such moves.”

Mansour warned that “the ongoing Syrian crisis threatens regional stability.”

Asked about the possibility of a shift in Iran’s foreign policy in light of the upcoming administration in Iran, Mansour said, “The Islamic Revolution of Iran was born in 1979 according to some principles … and I doubt if the Islamic Republic withdraws from the principles, because a withdrawal from the principles signals a change in the mechanism on which the revolution is founded.”

Mansour, who met with President-elect Hassan Rohani during his recent visit to Tehran, added that “the Islamic Republic firmly stands by all freedom and justice seeking nations.”
