Tehran: U.N. special envoy Kofi Annan said Tuesday Iran can play a “positive” role in resolving the Syrian crisis which can lead to end bloodshed and 17-month standoff between Syrian rebels and the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Annan was speaking after Tuesday talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi in Tehran as part of an effort to rescue his peace plan for Syria. 

Annan has reportedly said the Iranian government has cooperated with his efforts and he looks forward to continuing to work with Tehran toward a peaceful solution.

Annan is now in Baghdad to discuss the Syrian crisis with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
