ASTANA, November 15. /TASS/. Kazakhstan hails the results of the November 14 ministerial meeting on Syrian settlement in Vienna which yielded "serious agreements on ensuring peace process of the crisis settlement in Syria on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012," Kazakhstan’s foreign ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
"We call on all forces standing for the settlement of the Syrian crisis, including the Syrian government and opposition, to fully implement the Vienna-2 initiatives geared towards the soonest ceasefire in Syria, forming a coalition government, adoption of a new constitution and holding general elections within 18 months with participation of all Syrians," the ministry said.
The ministry commended "broad consensus on key issues between participants in the talks, namely Russia, the United States, the European Union and other key players in the Middle East, which can be an example for settlement of other pressing problems of the present in the name of global security, especially on the backdrop of the recent terror acts in Iraq, Turkey, Lebanon and France."
The Kazakh foreign ministry reminded that Kazakhstan had made its contribution in the settlement of the Syrian crisis by providing a venue for talks of Syrian opposition groups in Astana in May and September 2015.
