DUBAI - Iran's deputy foreign minister told the UN special envoy for Syria that a recent increase in breaches of Syria's ceasefire could harm peace talks, Iranian state news agency IRNA said on Tuesday.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian was speaking to envoy Staffan de Mistura, who arrived in Tehran after holding meetings with Syria's foreign minister in Damascus on Monday.

"One of our main concerns in Syria is the increasing activities of armed groups in recent days and the increase in breaches of ceasefire that can harm the political process (of peace talks)," he said.
