The Syrian government says the Montreux peace conference is biased against it and accuses organizers of being "imbalanced" in their selection of participants. dpa reported.

"Today we had 40 countries seemingly pre-selected in a way that most of them would be anti-Syrian delegations... governments who have hostile policies towards the Syrian government," Syria's ambassador to the UN, Bashar Jaafari, tells reporters.

"But at the same time, paradoxically, the [UN] secretary general excluded Iran ... this created an imbalance in the format of the talks."
