TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran is willing to discuss peace in Syria with any country, President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday, in response to a question about whether Iran could cooperate with Saudi Arabia and the United States on that topic.

"We will sit down at any table with countries inside and outside the region," he said at a joint news conference in Tehran with Austria's President Heinz Fischer.
