UN to convene Syria peace talks on January 22

The "Geneva 2" peace conference aimed at ending the conflict in Syria will take place on January 22, the spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a statement on Monday, ending six months of wrangling over a date for the talks.
"We will go to Geneva with a mission of hope," said the statement, which did not say who would attend and made no mention of whether Iran would be invited, a question that has divided the United States and Russia in the past.
