According to Syria’s SANA news agency, representatives of Iran, Turkey, Russia, and Syria in Astana Peace talks, which began yesterday and ends today, have stressed once again that Syria’s national sovereignty and territorial integrity should be respected.
They also condemned the terrorist attacks targeting Syrian civilian facilities and the killing of innocent civilians.
They emphasized the need for continued cooperation to eradicate terrorist groups like ISIS.
The peace negotiations were initiated in Kazakhstan’s capital which was called Astana back then.
The talks retained the same name as the Astana negotiations after Kazakhstan changed the name of its capital city to Nur-Sultan in 2019.
The 18th round of the Astana peace negotiations that were initiated by Russia, Iran, and Turkey in 2017 to find a political solution to the years-long crisis in Syria was kicked off on Wednesday (June 15, 2022).
