Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, on Wednesday stressed that the Syrian people are victim of a violent colonial policy.
He asserted that he will assess the Iranian proposal on the inclusion of Venezuela in the ‘Contact Group’ to solve the crisis in Syria.
President Chavez said in a press conference, “We will study the Iranian proposal and see how we can contribute to reaching a solution to the crisis in Syria.”
Iran proposed that Venezuela, a member of the Non-Aligned Movement, and Iraq, as current president of the Arab League, join the coming meetings of the contact group on Syria which encompasses Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, in addition to Iran.
Following the Cairo meeting, Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdullahian stressed that his country welcomes the goal of the meeting as it is based on immediate halt of violence, maintaining Syria’s integrity and sovereignty and rejection of any foreign interference.
