      U.S. Welcomes Decision to Disinvite Iran from Geneva II

      The United States welcomed on Monday the decision of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to rescind his invitation to Iran to attend an international conference on Syria this week.

      “We are hopeful that, in the wake of today’s announcement, all parties can now return to focus on the task at hand, which is bringing an end to the suffering of the Syrian people and beginning a process toward a long overdue political transition,” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement quoted by The Associated Press (AP).
