France says opposed to Iran attending Syria conference

AFP – France said Friday it is opposed to having Iran attend a peace conference on Syria despite Damascus’s ally Russia wanting Tehran’s presence at the event expected in the first half of June.

Foreign ministry spokesman Philippe Lalliot said: “We do not want Iran. The Syrian crisis is contagious and affects the entire zone. Regional stability is at stake and we cannot see how a country (Iran) that threatens this stability can participate in this conference.”
