Syrian opposition rejects Rouhani's offer to broker peace deal

A week before he attends the U.N. General Assembly in New York, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he can help bring peace to Syria, a long-time Iranian ally torn by civil war.

In the Washington Post op-ed on Thursday, he also called for an end to "the unhealthy rivalries and interferences that fuel violence and drive us apart." He signaled his desire for better engagement with the West.
