ASTANA, January 24. /TASS/. Russia, Iran and Turkey have reached an agreement on a mechanism to monitor the truce in Syria at the talks in Astana, a source in the Iranian delegation informed TASS on Tuesday.
"Iran, Russia and Turkey have agreed on the mechanism to monitor the ceasefire in Syria," the source said. "The parties continue to discuss the communique."
Securing and consolidating the ceasefire in Syria is the main objective of the talks in Kazakhstan’s capital, which involve representatives of the Syrian government and the opposition, Russia, Iran, Turkey and UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy, Staffan de Mistura.
