The 14th round of the high level talks on Syria crisis is to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday (December2-3) in the Kazakh capital Nur-Sultan.
Officials from the three guarantor countries of the Astana process, Turkey, Russia and Iran, as well as representatives of the Syrian government and the foreign-backed opposition will discuss and evaluate the latest developments in Syria at the meeting.
Syrian state TV reported late Monday that the Syrian delegation representing the government has arrived in the Kazakh capital to take part in the meeting.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s special representative for Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Jaberi Ansari and Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal are expected to attend. They will mainly focus on the latest situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone and developments in the works of the Syrian Constitutional Committee.
The Astana meeting was initiated by Turkey, Iran and Russia to find a permanent solution for the eight-year Syrian war. The main agenda of the process has focused on the constitutional process, political transition, security and resettlement. The first meeting of the Astana process was in Turkey in January 2017 to facilitate the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva.
