Blair: Tehran Must Be Part of Syria Peace Process

Former British prime minister, Tony Blair, emphasized the need for the participation of Iran in any peace process aimed at putting an end to the deadly crisis in Syria. “I think now where we are, because of everything that has happened, you have to get an agreement in which the faction that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad represents, and … Russia, Iran, yes, they are going to have to be part of this process,” Blair said, addressing a Council on Foreign Relations forum in New York on Friday, Press TV reported.  “There is no other way out of that.” Blair made the statements one day after UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced that a third round of talks on Syria crisis would be held in New York. However, Ban stopped short of announcing a specific date for the negotiations. Two conferences were held on the Syria crisis in October and November in Vienna.
