A senior Iranian lawmaker says the ongoing 12th summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Egypt is an opportunity for Iran to present its plan for resolving Syria crisis. “The summit is a proper opportunity for Iran to present its six-point plan for the resolution of the Syria crisis,” said Chairman of Iran Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi on Monday. The OIC summit, in which Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will take park, has been underway in the Egyptian capital city, Cairo, since February 2 and will run until February 7.
The Iranian lawmaker pointed out that Iran’s six-point plan has already been presented to the Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, adding that the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN-Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi have expressed optimism about the effectiveness of Tehran’s initiative.“In view of the political agreements achieved, the Cairo summit is a good opportunity to break Syria deadlock and put an end to the crisis and the military conflict in the Islamic country,” Boroujerdi said. On December 16, Iran unveiled the details of the six-point plan to resolve the ongoing crisis in Syria, which calls for an immediate end to all violent and armed acts. The plan calls for sending humanitarian aid to Syrians following the end of all conflicts, lifting all economic sanctions imposed against the country, and facilitating the return of displaced Syrians to their homes. It also urges talks between the Syrian government and the representatives of all Syrian groups regardless of their political and social tendencies in order to form a national reconciliation committee.
