UNITED NATIONS - Iran is ready to help international envoy Kofi Annan's bid to bring peace to Syria, but if some countries do not want Tehran at a meeting of global powers then "that's their problem," Iran's UN Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee said on Wednesday.

The meeting, called by Annan, will take place in Geneva on Saturday to work out a way to end the worsening conflict in Syria and bring about a political transition.



The United States, Britain and France objected to any Iranian participation because of stalled talks over Tehran's nuclear program.

"A very important fact that cannot be ignored by anybody is the influence and constructive role that the Islamic Republic of Iran has in the region," Khazaee told reporters at UN headquarters in New York.
