TEHRAN, Oct. 8 (Xinhua) -- Iran will not accept any pre- condition for attending peace talks on Syria, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said on Tuesday.
"If our presence (in peace talks on Syria) will help find a solution, setting pre-condition for inviting Iran to the talks is not acceptable, and we do not accept any condition," Afkham was quoted as saying by official IRNA news agency.
On Monday, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said the United States might agree with Iran's participation in a potential Geneva II talks over Syria if Tehran backs the "Geneva I Communique" which called for a transitional government in Syria.
"The Islamic republic has always underlined dialogues between the conflicting sides in Syria as the only way for putting an end to the horrific crisis in Syria and is ready to contribute to this procedure," said Afkham on Tuesday.
"Declining to invite Iran for developing a political process ( for Syria) is depriving the talks from Iran's constructive role," she added.
The United States and some Western countries have accused Iran of supporting the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the civil war and called "Iran as a part of the problem."
In June 2012, powers and some neighbors of Syria, including Iraq, Turkey and Persian Gulf states, agreed in Geneva with a transitional government in Syria as a means for a diplomatic solution to the conflicts in the Arab state.
Later Geneva II talks was suggested by Russia and the United States in an attempt to develop mechanisms for implementing earlier agreements.
