Iran has called for the inclusion of Iraq and Venezuela in the Egyptian-proposed contact group on Syria, saying that Baghdad and Karakas can contribute to the success of the quartet.

During an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in the Saudi city of Mecca in mid-August, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi put forward a proposal for the establishment of a quartet group, comprising Iran, Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, to help resolve the Syrian crisis.

On Tuesday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian along with representatives from Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey attended a meeting in Cairo to exchange views on the situation in Syria.

The Iranian diplomat also welcomed Egypt's proposal to hold the second round of the talks at the foreign ministerial level as a positive step toward the promotion of common points on resolving the unrest in Syria.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are behind the unrest while the opposition accuses the security forces of killing protesters.

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, adding that there are reports that a very large number of the insurgents are foreign nationals.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Tawfiq al-Jarrad, a political analyst from Damascus, to elaborate further on the issue.
