ظریف: خشونت در سوریه پایان پذیرد

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is set to take part in an upcoming conference in Vienna, Austria, aimed at exploring ways to end over four years of deadly violence in Syria.
“Based on invitation for the Islamic Republic of Iran to participate in this summit, the foreign minister will be present in Vienna at the head of a high-ranking political delegation for talks on the situation in Syria,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham announced on Wednesday, Press TV reported.
The Iranian delegates will also hold talks with their Russian and European counterparts on other issues of regional and international significance, Afkham added.
The conference is officially scheduled to be held on Friday, but diplomatic sources say a number of preparatory meetings would be held on the eve of the international event.
The talks are an expansion of discussions held last week in Vienna between the United States, Russia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia that did not reach any substantive conclusion.
Lavrov, US Secretary of State John Kerry as well as several top European and Arab diplomats will also be present in the discussions.
 Lavrov and Zarif spoke on Wednesday about preparations for talks on the Syria crisis, the Russian Foreign Ministry said, Sputnik reported.
 “In developing the last contacts, Sergei Lavrov and Mohammad Zarif exchanged opinions on the preparations for a meeting this week in Vienna of ‘foreign players’ and other key countries in the region to discuss ways of coordinating efforts in the fight against terrorism and action in intra-Syrian political talks soon to be launched,” the ministry said.
It was the second phone conversation between the two men in as many days.
 Two conferences were previously held in an attempt to resolve the Syrian crisis in the Swiss city of Geneva, one in 2012 and the other in 2014. However, both events ended in failure while the absence of Iran, an important regional player.
Iran was not invited to the first one, and while the country primarily received an invitation to take part in the second Geneva conference, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon later rescinded the invitation under pressure from the United States, Saudi Arabia, and the foreign-backed Syrian opposition.
The Islamic Republic has on numerous occasions insisted that a political solution is the only way out of the chaotic situation of Syria.
Tehran has drawn up a four-point peace plan on the Syrian crisis, which calls for a national unity government, a ceasefire, fighting terrorism and constitutional reforms in the violence-torn Arab nation, according to Zarif.
