GENEVA, November 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Diplomats from Russia and the US, along with representatives of the United Nations, will meet once again in Geneva in order to discuss the preparation process for the Geneva 2 peace conference.

Russia will be represented by Foreign Minister Deputies Mikhail Bogdanov and Gennadiy Gatilov. The United States delegation will be headed by Wendy Sherman, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. The United Nations are to be represented by Lakhdar Brahimi, the United Nations and Arab League Special Envoy to Syria.

Previous talks have failed to find an understanding regarding the Geneva 2 conference. One of the major disputes is whether Iran should be invited to the talks: US and western countries oppose this, while Russia believes Tehran should participate. However, the recent progress in P5+1 talks on Iranian nuclear issue may change this stance.
