Iran says 'terrorists in a new mask' must be barred from Syria peace talks

MOSCOW - Iran considers it important that "terrorists in a new mask" should not sit down for talks between the Syrian government and the opposition, Deputy Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said on Thursday.
Amirabdollahian, on a visit to Russia, criticized Saudi Arabia for insisting on including "terrorists" in the list of Syrian opposition groups for the Syria peace talks in Geneva.
The talks are due on Friday.
