Reaching political solution on Syrian issues needs a realistic view, Zarif said on Friday on the side lines of the 9th round of Astana peace talks.
He expressed hope for the political process to be based on respecting sovereignty, territorial integrity and integration of Syria and also preventing the intervention of foreign countries.
‘Since the start of Syria peace talks in the past 14 months, the meetings have been held at the ministerial level,’ Zarif said, adding that the summit would be convened in the near future, aimed at evaluating the achievements of the gatherings.
Establishing truce and creating de-escalation zones were important steps in ending war in Syria, he said, adding that Astana talks were a successful international process.
He also referred to sending humanitarian aid to war-torn areas as another part of the Astana talks.
