The Latest from Iran (7 November): Posturing on Syria

0630 GMT: The deputy head of armed forces, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri has declared, “The strategic stance of the Islamic Republic of Iran on Syria is opposing intervention of foreign players in the internal affairs of this country.”

Jazayeri did not refer to the Islamic Republic's own intervention in Syria, through economic and military assistance --- including the despatch of Quds Forces personnnel in an "advisory" capacity --- to Damasus. Instead, he called for a "Syrian" solution while ruling out “interventionist” proposals offered by foreign parties: “The people of Syria consider it more likely to achieve stability through the government, while the Syrian opposition’s potential to enter terrorist groups into Syria has diminished and the armed insurgents’ inability to topple the government has been clearly proven."
