Tehran: "Geneva 2 #Peace Conference `Must not Pander to Extremist's and Adopt a Realistic View' for #Syria"

#AceWorldNews says Tehran, who are not due to take part in the #Geneva2-Peace-Conference next week, says the gathering must not redistribute power towards radical factions among the country’s opposition. “Participants in the Geneva 2 forum must adopt a realistic view and remember that their decisions should not lead to the strengthening of extremist movements in Syria,” Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahi said. Iran, which has strongly supported the regime of President Bashar Assad throughout the conflict, was invited by the US to participate “on the sidelines” of the talks, but turned down the offer.
