TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- Iranian Foreign Minister Muhammad Javad Zarif said Monday the United States is an "irrelevant occupier in Syria," stressing that peace will be achieved in the war-ravaged country only through respect for its territorial integrity and people?.
"U.S. is an irrelevant occupier in Syria—futile to seek its permission or rely on it for security," Zarif said in a post on his official Twitter account, after the U.S. gave the green light to Turkey to launch a military operation in northern Syria. "Achieving peace & fighting terror in Syria will only succeed thru respect for its territorial integrity & its people."
