France’s Macron: No “Efficient” Solution in Syria Without Iran

The French president underlined the role of Iran in the Syria peace process, saying no “efficient” solution could be found to the six-year-old crisis in war-torn country without the Islamic Republic.

“If we do not resolve the Syrian problem with Iran around the table, then we will not have an efficient response, because Iran today is among the powers that have an influence on the ground,” Macron told reporters in New York on Tuesday, Press TV reported.

Macron pointed to Paris’ efforts to set up an international contact group on Syria to revive the UN-led peace talks in the Swiss city of Geneva.

“Noting the US refusal today, I want that the contact group advances and that the United Nations and France can serve as intermediaries with Iran,” Macron said.
