Invite Syria to US conference, urges Italian minister
Italian foreign minister Massimo D'Alema said Tuesday that Syria should be invited to a Middle East peace conference being organised by Washington for November.

"All nations involved should be invited, including Syria", D'Alema said after meeting Arab League president Amr Moussa in Cairo.

"I think it would be good for this conference to be attended by those countries in the international community most involved in finding peace in the region, hence the main European countries, besides the European Union", D'Alema said.

Washington has signalled that the conference aims to include Israel in face-to-face talks with representatives of what it calls 'moderate' Arab nations, such as Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and several Gulf states.
