Russia, Syria, Türkiye and Iran to hold talks in Astana on June 21

Deputy foreign ministers from Russia, Syria, Türkiye and Iran will meet in the capital of Kazakhstan, Astana, on June 21, Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency said on Wednesday.

The four countries have been discussing Syria’s future after 12 years of civil war, during which Russia and Iran supported President Bashar al-Assad while NATO member Türkiye backed political and armed opposition to him.

Foreign ministers from the four countries met in Moscow on May 10, and Russia said at the time that deputy ministers would be tasked with preparing a roadmap to advance Syria-Türkiye ties.
