Plan for  Three-Way Talks on Syria

The foreign ministers of Iran, Russia, and Turkey plan to meet next month to discuss the situation in Syria, Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov said on Tuesday, Reuters reported. 

The sides have yet to fix the exact date and location, Abdrakhmanov told reporters, but one of the options is the Kazakh capital Astana, which will also host a fresh round of lower-level talks on Syria between the same three parties.

In addition, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on the same day that cooperation between Moscow, Tehran, and Ankara is important for advancing the United Nations’ peacemaking efforts in Syria, TASS reported.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has for the past few weeks maintained regular contacts with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts over Syria, he said. “This work will go on. It is expected to provide significant support for further peacemaking activity within the framework of UN efforts.” 

Peskov added that Moscow can see a shortage of assistance from the United States in stabilizing the situation in the war-ravaged country.
