Geneva peace conference on Syria starts in 2 days, Iran is also invited

 

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon delivered speech about the coming Geneva peace conference ando spoke about the expectations from the conference. 

According to the UN officil web-site, Mr. Ban Ki-moon has welcomed the decision taken on Saturday by the opposition National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Armed Forces to participate in the conference whic, according to the source, aims to peacefully resolve the ongoing conflict.

“This is a courageous and historic step in the interest of a negotiated political solution to a three-year conflict that has caused so much misery and destruction,” Mr. Ban said in a statement.

“I look forward to the opposition’s expedited formation of a delegation that broadly represents the diversity of the Syrian opposition, including women,” he added.

The Geneva Conference on Syria, which will be chaired by Mr. Ban, will open on 22 January in Montreux, Switzerland. It will then move on 24 January to the Palais des Nations in Geneva where the Joint Special Representative of the UN and the League of Arab States for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, will facilitate the talks between the two Syrian parties.

The conference seeks to achieve a comprehensive agreement between the Syrian Government and the opposition for fully implementing the decision of an earlier Geneva conference in 2012, which called for the creation of a transitional government that would lead to the holding of elections.

As Iranian IRNA writes, Ban Ki-moon also invited Iran to participate in the Geneva II conference on the Syrian crisis.

“As I have said repeatedly, I believe strongly that Iran needs to be part of the solution to the Syrian crisis,” the UN chief especially said about Iranian participation.
