UN's peace envoy to Syria, Al-Akhdar Al-Ibrahimi, said that Iran is an important country of the Middle East and that he will be happy to hold talks with Iranian officials.
The Algerian diplomat made the above remarks in an interview with the Arabic-language news network Aljazeera on Sunday.
'Iran is an important regional country and I will be happy to talk with Iranian officials,' Ibrahimi added.
Commenting on the present situation in Syria, he noted that speaking about military intervention in Syria will ruin the peace process in that country.
Ibrahimi denied that he had said that 'it was too soon to speak about the ouster of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.'
He pointed out that speaking about any kind of military intervention in Syria will make his mission in Syria to fail and also ruin the entire peace process in that country.
