      UN Cancels Iran's Invite to Syria Peace Talks


      United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced on Monday that he had cancelled an offer for Iran to attend Syria peace negotiations after Tehran declared it does not support the June 2012 political transition deal that is the basis for the talks.

      "He (Ban) continues to urge Iran to join the global consensus behind the Geneva communiqué," Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky said, according to the Reuters news agency.
