Iran and the «Arab Peace Initiative» on Syria

Abstract

Based on Iranian and Arabian sources, the article analyzes the formation of the «Arab peace initiative» on Syria, which was supposed to put an end to the 2011 Syrian crisis by regional states. The participation of Iran, the closest ally of Syria in the Middle East region, its reaction and the evolution of the approach to the «Arab initiative» as it is being implemented, is examined. An analysis is given of Iran’s perception of the achievements and difficulties associated with the implementation of the provisions of this «Arab initiative», and Iran’s criticism of the departure from the initial interpretation of the «initiative» by Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
