Baku-APA. Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi said Monday night that Iran’s stance has never changed regarding the Syrian issue, which supports a domestic solution to the Syrian crisis and opposes any foreign intervention, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Salehi stressed at a press conference here after discussing the issue with his Egyptian and Turkish counterparts that the Syrian crisis should be solved from within Syria, a way that he dubbed a "Syria-Syria solution", while adding that "we cannot seek to impose a solution forcefully on Syria."

He reiterated that "we once said that Syria has to respond to its people’s demands, and we haven’t changed our policy in this regard."

"We have to be patient to reach a peaceful solution," said Salehi, describing the group participating in the meeting as having "more agreement than differences."

"I feel optimistic, and coordination between the participant countries are going to work out a peaceful solution," he said.
