Presidential Meeting on Syria Next Week

Presidential Meeting on Syria Next Week

The presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey are scheduled to meet on Wednesday to hold discussions aimed at securing a political settlement of the lingering conflict in Syria. The summit is to be held in the Russian Black Sea city of Sochi, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced on Thursday, IRNA reported. The three states are guarantors of the Syrian peace process, whose efforts have helped reduce violence in the war-torn country by enforcing an ongoing ceasefire that came into effect in Dec. 2016. The tripartite meeting among Tehran, Moscow and Ankara is the first involving the presidents. The trio is sponsoring peace talks in the Kazakh capital Astana and also implementing a plan for demarcating de-escalation zones in key flashpoint areas in Syria. The Astana talks are being held in parallel with UN-backed talks in Geneva to find a solution for the over six-year conflict.
