DHAKA: Iran on Tuesday offered to use its good ties with Damascus and Ankara to help resolve the row between the two countries over Syria’s downing of a Turkish warplane.
Syria’s shooting down of the jet last Friday was ‘a very sensitive issue’ that also concerns Teheran, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman said, just ahead of an emergency Nato meeting on the incident.
‘We will use our good relationship with the two countries to resolve the issue’, Ramin Mehmanparast said in his weekly news briefing, reports The Straits Times.
He hoped ‘key players in the region’ would be able to contain the incident and prevent other countries from being dragged in.
