Syrian Opposition Rejects Annan’s Call for Iranian Role in Talks

Syria’s main opposition group rejected United Nations envoy Kofi Annan’s call for an Iranian role in resolving the country’s crisis, describing it as an accomplice in President Bashar al-Assad’s aggression.

The Iranians “cannot be part of the solution unless their positions change radically,” the Syrian National Council said in a statement posted on its Facebook page today.
