Russian MP praises 'effective' Astana talks on Syria

Moscow, Feb 23, IRNA- Negotiations on the future of Syria held in the Kazakh capital Astana are the most effective talks to resolve the situation in the Arab country, a Russian lawmaker says.

“Astana Talks are the most efficient to settle all the problems in Syria,” Russian parliamentarian Anton Morozov told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Saturday.

He said the negotiations have led to “good solutions” to some problems in Syria.

Astana talks were launched in January 2017 at the initiative of Iran, Russia and Turkey.

The Russian lawmaker said the latest trilateral negotiations that took place in the Russian city of Sochi discussed joint fight against terrorism and the return of refugees.

A future constitution of Syria was high on agenda of the last round talks that were held last week.

The Russian lawmaker said Moscow will continue to coordinate efforts with Tehran and Ankara.
