Iranian, Russian, Turkish Foreign Ministers Held Talks on Syria

Alwaght- Foreign Ministers of Russia, Iran and Turkey Sergei Lavrov, Javad Zarif and Mevlut Cavusoglu held talks on Syria in the Turkey’s Mediterranean city of Antalya on Sunday.

The ministerial meeting is devoted to settlement of the Syria crisis and is organized prior to the Russia-Iran-Turkey summit due in Sochi on November 22.

On Saturday, high-ranking officials from the three countries also met in Iranian capital Tehran to make preparations for the Sochi meeting, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters on Sunday after meeting Russian Sergey Lavrov and Iranian Javad Zarif.

Cavusoglu said they discussed the topics that may come up during the summit with his counterparts. He said the purpose of the summit was to evaluate what the three guarantor countries have succeeded about Syria so far, and the steps that should be taken in the future.

"With the Astana process, we have come a long way with Russia, especially in terms of the establishment of peace on the field and forming de-escalation zones. Situation on the field is much better compared to last year,” Cavusoglu said.

Top generals to hold talks

Meanwhile, Chiefs of Staff of Russia, Turkey and Iran at a meeting before the summit on November 22 will have in Sochi a meeting to discuss details of the de-escalation zones in Syria, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the Antalya talks.

At the Sochi meeting, participants from the three guarantor countries will discuss developments in Syria and the recent situation in the region.

The three countries had brokered a cease-fire in Syria in December 2016, which led to the talks in Astana, Kazakhstan. The talks are being held in parallel to UN-backed discussions in Geneva to find a political solution to the six-year conflict.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will take part in the meeting hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is also expected to attend the meeting.

The eighth round of Astana talks is expected to be held in the second half of December.
