The top diplomats of the three countries serving as guarantors of the nationwide ceasefire in Syria are expected to give their views on a number of international and regional issues including the Iran nuclear deal.

Sergei Lavrov, Mohammad Javad Zarif and Mevlut Cavusoglu, the foreign ministers of Russia, Iran and Turkey respectively, are holding a press conference in Moscow on April 28.

Foreign Minister Lavrov pointed out that the US, French and British coalition airstrikes against Syria on April 14 were conducted before the OPCW completed its investigation into the alleged chemical attack in Douma on April 7.

Ahead of the press conference, Lavrov said that Moscow believes that collective measures were necessary in the Astana peace talks format to normalize the situation in Syria. He also reiterated that Russia, Turkey and Iran need to work together to help Damascus clear the wartorn country of terrorists.

The Russian foreign minister added that unfortunately, “the events of recent weeks have shown that not everyone seems to want peace in Syria.”

Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif thanked Lavrov for Russia’s hospitality, noting that he had “lost count” of the number of meetings he has held with his Russian counterpart. He added that Moscow and Tehran have reached a high level of understanding not only in security, but the economy as well.

According to Zarif, the Astana platform for Syrian settlement was “the only initiative where Tehran cooperates with its Turkish partners, and this cooperation yields results.”

Astana: one excellent chess player, one that’s rather proficient at it (slimy but good player indeed), and one from the folks that outright invented the chessboard.
So much intelligence at play.
Pity you can’t say the same of Westerners and Gulf guys.
