The British Foreign Office has says it has no objection to an Egyptian initiative, which includes Iran being involved in a quartet-like mandate for resolving the unrest in Syria.


The British Foreign Secretary William Hague had previously stated that Iran’s peaceful efforts to end the unrest in Syria were not helpful.

But recently, a spokesperson for the UK Foreign Office said London did not reject the initiative from Egypt, which seeks help from Iran to deal with the unrest in Syria.

This comes after reports confirmed in the recent months that British Intelligence forces were operating in Syria, providing arms and equipment to the insurgents who have been escalating violence and targeting Syrian officials.

The President of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, has said that the United Nations-Arab League envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi would be provided with an office in Cairo, where representatives of the proposed quartet, including those from Iran, could meet him.

During this international dispute, the UK appears to be realizing that Iran holds a key role in restoring peace in Syria and may be using Egypt’s proposal to re-establish Syria-related communications with Iran.
