Iranian TV: Tehran says Arab deal on Syria 'acceptable'

TEHRAN - Iran welcomed as "acceptable" an Arab peace deal signed by Syria on Monday that aims to end nine months of unrest against the rule of Syrian President Bashar Assad, a senior official told Iran's Arabic language Al Alam news channel.
"Whatever is accepted by President Assad is an acceptable act in Iran's view," Iran's deputy Foreign Minister Amir Abdollahi told Al Alam television.
"Of course some modifications could be considered in the plan ... However, many of Iran's standpoints have been considered in the deal," he told the station.
