DAMASCUS - UN Syria peace envoy Kofi Annan was heading for Tehran on Monday following what he described as "positive" talks with Syria's President Bashar Assad, his spokesman Ahmed Fawzi said.

Iran remains one of Assad's main allies as his international isolation grows. Syria is in the 16th month of a crackdown by Assad's forces against a militant opposition in which more than 15,000 people have been killed.
