Earlier on Saturday, Ali Asghar Khaji, a special assistant to Iran's foreign minister for special political affairs, held a meeting with the visiting UN Special Envoy for Syria Geir O. Pedersen in Tehran on Saturday. 

During the meeting, Khaji stressed the need for UN efforts to intensify to get sanctions against Syria lifted, provide assistance to the people, return the displaced and begin reconstruction of the war-torn country. 

The two diplomats also discussed the latest developments revolving around the Syrian crisis, the ongoing talks within the framework of the Constitutional Committee in Geneva, foreign sanctions on Syria, and the sending of humanitarian aid to the people of the country.
