Iran To Hold Summit on Syria
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian was quoted by IRNA news agency yesterday saying that on Thursday Iran is going to host a regional summit in Teheran about Syria. Those who will attend, he said, will have a "reasonable" perspective about the outcome.
"A consultation meeting on Syria will be held in Tehran on Thursday with the participation of those countries who have realistic stances on this country."
Rest assured that the Saudis will certainly not attend the summit, neither will Qatar nor Turkey.
This is not simply another publicity stunt by Iran.
There is no doubt that Iran supports the Assad regime as do China and Russia who will most probably attend the summit. In arranging and hosting the summit Iran is trying to suggest that ousting Assad is not the only and certainly not the best option available.
With that, I agree.
