Britain on Tuesday told Iran to stop supporting the Syrian government of Bashar Assad militarily, urging it to back efforts to broker peace in Syria instead.Iran and its Lebanese Shiite allies Hezbollah have long backed Assad, and Western diplomats say Tehran is supplying weapons and personnel to help the Syrian leader win what is become an increasingly brutal war against rebel forces.
