TEHRAN, Oct. 12 (Press Shia Agency) – Iran’s Parl. speaker said the recent developments in Syria has brought certain countries together to disrupt the current regional equations in their own favor.

Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani made the remark on Tuesday to a gathering in Qom, adding “today, the surrounding countries are gripped with security crisis, and the situation in Syria in the past few days has changed in a way that certain countries in the region have now become all the more determined to disrupt the regional equations in their own favor.”
