TEHRAN, July 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Tehran is ready to offer a platform for talks between the Syrian government and the opposition, Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Sunday.

It has influence in the region, and we should not ignore it. Tehran should participate actively in the search for a solution,” Annan said. this position was not shared by several Western countries, which spoke against involvement of Iran in the international conference on Syria.
