BRUSSELS, October 14. /TASS/. Russia and Iran can play a leading role in the resolution of the ongoing conflict in Syria, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said on Wednesday.

"The role of Russia [in the crisis settlement] could be extremely important, Mogherini said.

We all agree also with Russia that we need to invest a lot in the UN-led process that is why the talks [UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Syria] Staffan de Mistura held yesterday in Moscow [with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov], I believe, are very important in this respect," she said.

"Russia is and can be a key player when it comes to putting pressure, convincing the regime in Syria to participate in the political process, in the talks, to sit around the table. As well as the role of Iran is crucial in this respect," she added.

"If we want political situation to move inside Syria and the political process to start immediately, we need to involve the actors that have an influence on the regime. That’s why both Russia and Iran are crucial," Mogherini said.

She also said that Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries should be also involved.
