Britain: Iran must back Syria transition to attend peace talks

Iran must clarify that it supports the formation of a transitional government in Syria if it is to attend this week's peace talks in Geneva, Britain said on Monday.

"Iran must now clarify that they accept the basis of the (UN) secretary-general's invitation. This makes it clear that the only basis for anyone to attend Geneva II is to implement in full the June 2012 Geneva communique, calling for mutually-agreed political transition," a Foreign Office spokesman said.
