Iran repeats backing for Assad and rejects peace talks with Syrian ‘terrorists’

Iran broke the international unity over Syria on Saturday by restating its support for Bashar al-Assad’s regime and declaring that any rebels deemed “terrorists” should be excluded from peace talks.

The 15 members of the United Nations Security Council unanimously approved Resolution 2254 on Friday, setting out a plan for “political transition” in Syria.

The idea is that Mr Assad’s regime will open talks with rebel groups next month with the aim of forming a “credible, inclusive and non-sectarian” government within six months. This new administration would then hold “free and fair elections” to decide the country’s leadership by mid-2017.
