MUNICH, Germany: The head of the Syrian opposition Moaz Alkhatib will meet Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi on Saturday on the sidelines of a security conference in Munich, a diplomatic source told Reuters.

"The talks about Syria are intensifying and the Iranians have been drawn in. Let's see how it all ends," the source said.

Earlier Alkhatib, president of the Syrian National Coalition, met Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who invited him to visit Moscow, a breakthrough in relations that could help pave the way for a solution to the Syrian crisis.
