Moscow, Dec 20, IRNA — Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov underlined that Iran should play an active role in the upcoming talks between Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent US Security Council members plus Germany).

“Elimination of Iran from the Geneva II conference is unconstructive and only creates problem in the way of implementation of the existing agreements,” Gatilov wrote on his personal weblog on Friday.

The Russian deputy FM said that the Syrian government has determined its official delegation to the Geneva II conference scheduled to be held on January 22 in Montreux, Switzerland and it will announce the names to United Nations and Arab League Special Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi.

“We are waiting for the Syrian opposition to declare their readiness to attend the Geneva II conference on Syria without any precondition,” Brahimi said.
