Lavrov said last week Russia wanted to include Iran in the conference because the country could have influence on the Syrian government.
Calling Iran part of the problem and not part of the solution was “thoughtless," he said.Lavrov said Russia saw no alternative to the peace plan brokered by the UN-Arab League joint special envoy Kofi Annan and suggested making it more “detailed” and “specified.”
Lavrov was scheduled to visit Iran today to discuss the country’s nuclear programme and the situation in Syria. — Xinhua.
