LONDON, September 8. /TASS/. The West should include Syrian President Bashar Assad, Iran and Russia in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization, Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz told journalists on Tuesday during his visit to Tehran.

"In my opinion the priority is the fight against terror," Reuters quoted Kurz as saying. "This will not be possible without powers such as Russia and Iran. We need a pragmatic common approach in this respect including the involvement of Assad in the fight against Islamic State terror," he added.
