Moscow, Dec 21, IRNA -- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said on Wednesday that Iran, Russia and Turkey cooperate for establishment of a lasting ceasefire in Syria to bring about a political solution to the crisis in the country.
Zarif made the remarks during a joint press conference with his Russian and Turkish counterparts at the end of troika talks on Syria in Moscow.
