TEHRAN, November 11./TASS/. Iran has not made a final decision as of yet on its participation in a meeting on Syria due in Vienna on November 14, the Lebanese Al Mayadeen television quoted the Iranian Foreign Ministry as saying on Wednesday.
The foreign ministers of Russia and Iran, Sergey Lavrov and Javad Zarif, discussed in a telephone conversation on Wednesday the situation in Syria ahead of a meeting of the Syrian Support Group in Vienna on November 14, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"Within the framework of discussion on the regional agenda, an exchange of opinions continued on the ways of settlement in Syria. Ahead of a next session of the Syrian Support Group in Vienna on November 14, the ministers emphasized a need for constructive approaches and efficient co-ordination of international effort in fight against terrorism and towards an early launch of an intra-Syrian political dialogue," the ministry said.
"It was stated that the dialogue, just as the Vienna statement by the participating countries of October 30 provides for should be carried out under the auspices of the United Nations between the government of Syria and a credible delegation of the Syrian opposition, while the external actors, including the members of the Syrian Support Group, should help the parties to achieve agreements, and not substitute for the intra-Syrian or anticipate their results," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
The telephone conversation was initiated by Russia.
