The bloody civil war in Syria and Iran's efforts to come in from the diplomatic cold will drive the agenda next week as world leaders, business chiefs and celebrities gather in the Swiss resort of Davos.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will be among more than 40 leaders and 2,000 of the world's most powerful economic players expected at the annual gathering that starts on Tuesday.

He is hoping to drum up international investment for his sanction-hit economy on the back of a diplomatic entente with the West.
