The council, at the end of its one-day meeting called on all UN Security Council members to exercise more pressure upon the Syrian regime to abide by resolution 2139 in order to alleviate suffering of the Syrian people.

They said relations with Iran should be based on good neighborliness, non-interference in internal affairs, respecting of sovereignty of regional countries and refraining from use of force. On Iran's nuclear program, the ministerial council called for compliance with the interim agreement signed between Tehran and the P51 group in Geneva on November 24, 2013 in order to brush aside the concerns over the controversial program.
