A delegation headed by Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani would arrive in Sri Lanka and Vietnam to discuss about the Syrian situation among other bilateral and international issues, MEHR News Agency reported today.

It said the Speaker had left for Vietnamese capital Hanoi already. Heading a parliamentary delegation, Larijani will also make a visit to Sri Lanka.

Speaking to reporters before departure, Larijani said the aim of his visits is to expand bilateral relations in various fields and to promote parliamentary cooperation with the two countries.

Larijani added that the current global developments will also be discussed with the Vietnamese officials, noting the airstrikes carried out by the US, UK and France against Syria, which came after a suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma last weekend.

“One of the key issues to be discussed with Vietnamese and Sri Lankan officials is the Syrian situation because, to our utter surprise, international mechanisms were all ignored in the attack, which can cause adverse consequences for future conflicts. Therefore, it is needed to talk with officials of Vietnam and Sri Lanka on this issue and hope that the talks would be helpful for establishing peace in the international scene,” Larijani said.

    Syrian situation??? USA attacked Syria without asking us and despite that Iran want our involvement in this matter. My3 should explain Iran that USA even didn't ask us join them in that coordinate attack on Syria.

    What can we do other than sympathise with you. We are all non -white third world at the mercy of the White Christian first world. Only Russia,even though it is white,has the potential to defend us.

    Iranians are white Aryans and no Arabs as many believe. How will Iran bring peace if it wages brutal wars of aggression in several countries (Yemen, Syria and others). With its support in Syria, Russia is at the end of its power, as it is almost financially bankrupt. Neither Russia nor Iran are democratic countries but dictatorships in which human rights are trampled on.

    Please don’t waste your time and our money hosting you, we are running without a government ... sorry can’t help

    Iran helped us in difficult times. But I don't think he would find friends in the current government. What we have is a US puppet government. We even brought a UN resolution against us to please the west.

    Speaker said "To our utter surprise, international mechanisms were all ignored in the attack .... " fair enough US,UK and FR had patients and sympathy I say that you are still alive to travel and talk with third world corrupt governments. The chemical attacks carried out by your government ....... did that by-pass any international mechanisms in place against your government using chemical weapons on your own people ?
