The next Syria peace talks in the Astana format are going to take place mid-February, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated in Moscow on Monday at a joint press conference with his Kazakh counterpart Beibut Atamkulov.

Lavrov said that the twelfth Astana talks will be attended by the three guarantor nations of the peace process, Russia, Iran and Turkey, as well as observers from Jordan and the UN.

The Russian foreign minister also said that Moscow believes Turkey and Syria will be able to agree on providing security to their common border following US troops’ withdrawal from the area.

Atamkulov on his part talked about the need to strengthen the economic ties between Russia and Kazakhstan.

“The way the Foreign Ministry of Kazakhstan works is going to be changed significantly. We will work harder on the investments and promoting Kazakh exports,” he said.

Iran can’t even guarantee to provide water to its own people and before Russian intervention in Syria, IRGC only proved itself irrelevant : in sept 2015, the Syrian state was about to fall!
