MOSCOW, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is disappointed with the decision taken by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to revoke an invitation to Iran for an international peace conference on Syria dubbed Geneva II, because this step weakens international effort for resolution of crisis in the country, spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday.
“We stated many times that all key countries that exert influence on developments in Syria should participate in upcoming Geneva II talks,” he said.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran can play major role in promotion of peace process in the Syrian Arab Republic, including in attaining agreements to this effect between the parties to Syrian crisis,” Lukashevich added.
