Iran’s deputy foreign minister says the situation Syria is “very complicated” amid growing concern a wider regional war could erupt.
It comes after Israel targeted Iranian sites in Syria earlier this month.
Mr Araghchi told newsmen in London that Iran’s presence in Syria was not aimed at creating a new front against Israel, but to fight terrorism.
He deplored the suffering in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta where Syrian bombing in the past few days has killed scores of civilians.
Mr Araghchi added that Iran-backed militia such as Lebanon’s Hezbollah – which has also fought in Syria on the side of the Syrian government – existed to confront Israel.
Mr Araghchi also refused to confirm that Iran had sent a drone into Israeli airspace from Syria earlier this month.
He said the drone belonged to the Syrian army.
