CAIRO, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Saudi Arabia comes against Iran’s involvement in the Geneva II Peace Conference, Arab mass media report on Monday.
Tehran’s delegation will be able to arrive in Geneva only if a transition government, which will be formed in Syria, agrees. Any invitation at the Geneva conference should be approved by the transition government, mass media quote an official of the Saudi Arabian King’s Office as saying on Monday.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham said Tehran was planning to take part in the Geneva II Peace Conference on Syria.
“Iran will take part in the conference without preconditions,” the spokesperson said.
Earlier, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Amir Abdollahian confirmed that an invitation from U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had been received.
The Geneva II Peace Conference will be launched in Montreux, Switzerland, on January 22.
