Syria, Iran on road to peace   

Kuwait Times - 24 April, 2012
Author: Labeed Abdal

Sending 30 unarmed military observers to Syria to report on the implementation on the full cassation of armed violence by all parties was a very good move by international bodies, to prevent the widening of the conflict in such a big country as Syria. The observers also checked on the implementation of a six-point peace plan proposed by UN-Arab League, after the adaptation of the resolution number 4042 by the UN security council.

Furthermore, the involvement with the specialized team to implement a ceasefire by Kofi Annan, special envoy, and Ban Ki Moon, Secretary General, secured the approval for more forces in the field. Truly this gave us relief, making the chances to limit the dispute higher.

Also, the restart of negotiations with Iran was a vital step. Major countries also started lately in talks held in the Turkish capital of -Istanbul to move forward with more constructive and cooperative efforts to lessen the tension .

Serious cooperation from Iran with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), should be the way to make it clear to the world that there are no nuclear weapons and the program is civil in purpose.

Those two boiling issues in the region, with some timely involvement by the United Nations and major countries of the world, and more sincere diplomatic dialogue and problem solving tools, can defuse the tension and re-direct us down the road of international peace, security and stability. -
