Talks in Switzerland between Syrian government and the opposition to end the country's three years of  crisis are unlikely to be successful, Iranian President "Hasan Rouhani" said today, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Rouhani said "because of the lack of influential players in the meeting, I doubt about the Geneva-2 meeting's success in fighting against terrorism ... and its ability to resolve the Syria crisis".

He stressed "the Geneva-2 meeting has already failed without it even being started".

United Nations Secretary-General "Ban Ki-moon" retracted an invitation to Iran after opposition coalition said on Monday it would withdraw from the peace talks scheduled for Jan. 22 if Iran took part.
