The Latest from Iran (18 November): A Move on Syria

0655 GMT: In addition to its drumbeat of propaganda over the Gaza conflict, the regime is making a high-profile move on Syria this weekend.


Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has announced a meeting in Tehran today, involving almost 200 people, between the Syrian regime and opposition groups to focus on "national dialogue".

Salehi said Syrian Minister of National Reconciliation Ali Haidar will attend as the representative of President Assad. He added that foreign ambassadors representatives from Brazil and other states "seeking to help resolve the crisis in Syria" had  been invited.

State news agency IRNA props up the regime line this morning with headlines on "Israel Army Artillery Targeting Syria" and "America and the West are Silent Against Zionist Atrocities".
