Iran will soon submit a four-point plan to end the Syrian civil war to the United Nations, its deputy foreign minister said Wednesday. [source: Reuters] That plan will likely encompass an immediate cease-fire, creation of a national unity government, rewriting of Syria’s constitution to include the majority of Syrian ethnic groups, and hold national elections under international supervision. The plan may also provide for joint regional negotiations to end the conflict, that include Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar.
