MOSCOW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) - Russia has not invited Iran to take part in the Geneva-2 conference, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Monday.
“It’s the matter of the U.N. Secretariat to send invitations,” Lukashevich said.
He recalled that Russia and the United States had initiated the international conference on Syria (the Geneva-2). Organisational aspects are in Russia’s competence, Lukashevich added.
The diplomat said the second round of tripartite consultations (Russia, the U.S. and the U.N.) would take place in Geneva on June 25 to discuss preparations for the international conference on Syria.
Lukashevich said he is hopeful that the meeting “will clarify prospects for the conference”.
