Russia has indicated that the Geneva II conference on Syrian crisis will not bear any result if Iran as well as the Syrian opposition did not participate in the dialogue. “The United States says that some of the Syrian opposition does not want Iran to sit at the negotiating table. But if the Syrian authorities are given the right to choose the [conference] participants by the same principle they may also veto and the event will not be representative. That won’t do,” one of the Russian officials involved with the process was reported as saying to the international media. Meanwhile, top officials from Moscow have maintained that just because opposition in Syria hates Iran, it does not mean that Iran will not be invited. Iran on the other hand has expressed its desire to help bring stability in Syria.
