    Geneva II conference on Syria


    by PressTV

    On Wednesday the 22nd of January, a group of countries will be sitting down with different Syrian groups in the Swiss city of Montreux in the hope of bringing the crisis in Syria to an end.

    Over the past few weeks, whether or not Iran should be among those present at the talks has been a matter of much debate.

    Syria has been gripped by deadly crisis since March 2011 with the Western powers and their regional allies-- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey-- supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

    According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced due to the violence.

    In this edition of the show we look at Syria’s current state, and how Iran can help end the carnage.
