    Iran has said it is ready to call for the withdrawal of foreign fighters in Syria.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was asked if Iran would use its influence over Lebanese Hezbollah fighters in Syria.

    “Iran is prepared to call for the withdrawal of all foreign forces. We are prepared for everybody with influence to push for (the) withdrawal of all non-Syrians from the Syrian soil,” Zarif replied.

    Iran has also shown it is open to diplomacy over its nuclear programme.

    The country’s top negotiator has said a framework deal on nuclear talks was possible this week. It will resume negotiations with the United States, Russia, France, Britain, China and Germany in Geneva on Thursday.

    Meanwhile the head of the UN nuclear watchdog, Yukiya Amano, said he is considering an invitation to visit Tehran, which would also be a sign of progress in the long stalled talks.
