From Washington, this is VOA News.

US and Russia split over Iran at Syria peace talks. Thai opposition protesters snarl traffic in Bangkok. I’m Ray Kouguell reporting from Washington.

US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met Monday in Paris to plan for Syrian peace talks later this month. The men however can not agree on inviting Iran to join those talks. VOA’s Scott Sterns reports. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has no bigger ally than Iran. So his government says it expects Iran will be invited to plan peace talks in Geneva just like any other state. Secretary Kerry said he hopes Iran comes forward to support that mutual consent.

“A country that has a long-term relationship with Assad and with Syria has a huge ability to be able to have an impact if they want to have the right impact.“ Speaking through a translator, Lavrov said these talks should not be jeopardized by outstanding differences between the United States and Iran. One can’t be influenced by ideological sentiments so much that it harms the interests of the cause.“ Scott Sterns. VOA news, Paris.

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging Iraqi leaders to address the root causes for a surge of bloodshed in the country. Al-Qaeda linked militants have seized control of two key cities. More violence between minority Sunnis and the Shi’ite-led government has killed thousands over the last 9 months. Mr. Ban made an unannounced visit to Baghdad Monday for talks with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The UN chief said he is especially worried about deteriorating security in Iraq and he’s personally deeply saddened by the deaths of innocent Iraqis.

Israel’s former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon who died last Saturday at the age of 85 was buried at his home in the Negev following civilian and military services Monday. VOA’s Scott Bobb has details from Jerusalem. Veteran politician and military commander Ariel Sharon was laid to rest Monday before family, friends and the delegation of visiting dignitaries. He was praised early in the day during a memorial service at the Knesset---the Israeli parliament. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he and Mr. Sharon did not always agree but when in government together they cooperated for the security and economy of the country. He said Mr. Sharon was a practical and pragmatic man whose pragmatism was full of deep feelings for his country and the Jewish people. Scott Bobb, VOA news, Jerusalem.

Gaza militants fired two rockets that hit an area close to the burial site. Military officials say they retaliated for the two missiles fired from Gaza on Monday with two air raids in the central and southern parts of the Palestinian territory. There’s no information of damage from either attack.

Tens of thousands of Thai opposition supporters took over key intersections in Bangkok Monday snarling traffic as part of their campaign to topple the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and destruct the election set for February 2nd. Thousands of security officers are deployed in the Thai capital but they take no action against the protesters. Prime Minister Yingluck has dissolved parliament, called for the earlier elections and proposed formation of a national reform council as a way to resolve the month-long political crisis.

The Central African Republic’s new interim president says he’s taking steps to restore security in the capital Bangui. The city has been terrorized by six weeks of political and ethnic violence that displaced almost 500,000 residents. In an interview with VOA, Alexandre Nguendet says he met Sunday with local militias which, in his words, agreed to make peace. Mr. Nguendet says he’s also creating a task force with police and security forces to restore order.

A new study finds the massive collection of phone data by the clandestine US National Security Agency has no discernible impact on preventing terrorism. A Washington research group called a New American Foundation studied the investigation to 225 people linking someway to terrorism in the United States since the deadly 2001 attacks on the country and concluded the NSA phone surveillance only played a key role in one instance and involved a cab driver in the western US city of San Diego, California who was convicted of sending 8,500 dollars to al-Qaeda’s Somali affiliate in 2007 and 2008.
