Regarding inquiries into the stance of the Islamic Republic of Iran concerning its participation in the Geneva II conference on Syria in Montreux, Switzerland, the response of the Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations, Ambassador M. Khazaee is as follows:

“The Islamic Republic of Iran appreciates the efforts of the UN Secretary General and his special envoy, Mr. Brahimi, in seeking a political solution for the Syrian crisis. Iran has always been supportive in finding a political solution.
However, the Islamic Republic of Iran does not accept any preconditions for its participation in any conference. If the participation of Iran is conditioned upon its accepting the Geneva I communique, Iran will not participate in the Geneva II conference.”
