Syria's Aleppo marked as international city under Iran peace plan

According to reports Tuesday in al-Araby al-Jadeed, the Iranian plan would divide control in Syria between the Assad regime and rebel forces, each controlling the territories they currently hold, while Aleppo would fall under international control since it is split between the army and rebel forces.

But Iran isn't the only regional player that's opened a new diplomatic front in Syria. Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir travelled to Moscow Tuesday to discuss the issues with Russian officials who have been backing the Assad regime financially, strategically and militarily.
