MOSCOW, December 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Iran’s participation in the Geneva II Peace Conference would be logical, State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Alexei Pushkov said.
“Iran’s participation in the Geneva II conference garnered more and more support because everyone realises that whatever the attitude is this is the region’s most important state. The settlement without Iran is more problematic,” the lawmaker said.
He said the European Union states shared his view. “The U.S. has big doubts while Saudi Arabia and Israel have negative positions,” he added.
“Iran should be involved in the process due to the fact that very important agreements on the fate of its nuclear programme were achieved,” Pushkov said.
“The Geneva II conference will be ‘downsized’ because the country plays a big role in the settlement of the situation in Syria,” he said.
