Will killings be stopped in Syria? With Geneva II talks officially coming to an end this Friday, many say the talks have already failed, meaning killings will continue. Even though on June 30, 2012 an action group conference now known as Geneva I was held but Geneva II is the first time the two sides are officially meeting after Syrian conflict started back on March 2011. Iran has always insisted that Syrian conflict should be resolved through amicable ways like negotiations and by Syrian people by ballot. UN secretary General, Ban Ki Mon invited Iran to attend Geneva II but rescinded his invitation under pressure by the West, Saudi Arabia and other countries supporting and arming Syrian opposition. Syrian opposition insists that Syrian President Bashar Al Assad leave power. Syrian government says that not dealing with terrorism in Syria is the main obstacle for reaching any agreement. Some Iranian officials believe that Iran has always had a constructive role in solving regional disputes and it can help the two sides reach an agreement. According to United Nations the death toll surpassed 100,000 in June 2013 and reached 120,000 by September 2013. Currently, an estimated 2.4 million refugees from Syria are residing in the neighboring countries.. Arash Khalatbari, Press TV, Tehran
