MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. Administration has begun to perceive Russia’s arguments on the importance of including Iran in the circle of participants in consultations on peace settlement in Syria, although no final decision on the issue has been taken yet, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told Bloomberg news agency Thursday.

“We think regional players should by all means attend the Geneva-2 forum as they have strong influence on one or another party to the Syrian conflict,” he said.

“Iran surely falls into this category of countries and it has made known its principled support of the Geneva communiqué,” Bogdanov said.

He recalled that the U.S. had raised objections against Iran’s inclusion in the untangling of the Syrian crisis. “The Americans claimed then Iran was part of the Syrian problem and not at all a clue to resolving it.”

“However, we can see now these tough approaches have undergone a certain change,” Bogdanov said.
