GENEVA, January 20, /ITAR-TASS/. An invitation to Iran to participate in the Geneva-2 peace conference on Syria has not been sent out so far, Corinne Momal-Vanian, head of the news service of the European Office of the UN at Geneva, told Itar-Tass.
"At this moment, there is no invitation for Iran," she said.
It has become known to an Itar-Tass correspondent that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will leave for Genva by air on Monday night and is expected to arrive in Switzerland in the morning of January 21. Diplomatic sources who are familiar with the state of affairs told Itar-Tass that they do not rule it out that a decision regarding Iran "will be made on Monday in the course of the day".
A Geneva-2 international peace conference on Syris is to begin in the Swiss city of Montreux on January 22. It will be attended by the Foreign ministers of about 30 countries, the UN Secretary-General, the Heads of the League of Arab States and the Islamic Cooperation Organization, and by delegations from the Syrian government and the opposition.
