Iran confirmed today that it had received an invitation from the United States to take part this week in talks on the Syrian conflict but left open the possibility of it attending.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will discuss the talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marsieh Afkham told the Fars news agency.

The Iranian news agency IRNA said in an editorial Wednesday that US openness to Iran participating in the Syria talks is the Western power's "first sign of reason" on the matter.

"Reason is the key to a solution in the Syria crisis," the agency wrote.

The US State Department said Tuesday for the first time that Washington was open to Iranian participation in the Vienna talks. (dpa)
