No deal on Iran role at Syria talks, Saudis invited

Negotiators have failed to reach agreement on whether Iran should be invited to Syria peace talks in Geneva next month, international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi said Friday.

"On Iran, we haven't agreed yet. It's no secret that we in the United Nations welcome the participation of Iran, but our partners in the United States are still not convinced that Iran's participation would be the right thing to do," Brahimi told reporters. He added, however, that Saudi Arabia was on the list of three dozen nations invited to the talks.
