Syria talks open door to Tehran
(01-13 19:11)

US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov called for “localized ceasefires'' in Syria ahead of peace talks later this month in Switzerland.
Kerry also said Iran was 'welcome' at Syria talks if Tehran agrees to transition.
Lavrov and UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi also said Iran should take part in the talks, following talks in Paris.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will travel to Moscow Thursday for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a diplomat said.
"Zarif will meet the Russian president as well as Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during his one-day trip to Moscow on Thursday,'' Iran's ambassador to Moscow, Mehdi Sanaei, told the official IRNA news agency.—AFP
