    Iran will receive an invitation to participate in the upcoming multilateral talks on the Syrian political transition, US State Department spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Kirby said that the US government anticipates Iran “will be asked to participate” in the talks, but “whether they come or not, that is up to the Iranian leaders.”

    “We do expect, in this case, that Iran will be invited to participate,” Kirby said concerning the multilateral talks on Syria scheduled in Vienna at the end of the week.
