Tehran, SANA Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham stressed that some countries which are part of the international coalition for countering terrorism have been supporting terrorists in Syria and Iraq financially and military.
In a statement on Thursday, Afkham added that other countries in the coalitions didn’t shoulder their international responsibilities in countering the terrorist organizations, hoping that prospective political changes could occur in Syria and Iraq.
