ASTANA, February 14. /TASS/. The delegations of Iran, the Syrian government and the UN have arrived in Astana for a meeting on Syria, Kazakhstan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Anuar Zhainakov, told TASS over the phone on Tuesday.
"At this point, I can confirm that representatives of the Russian, Iranian delegations, the Syrian government and the UN have arrived," he said, adding that the rest of the participants are expected to arrive soon.
Earlier, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said that representatives of UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, will attend the meeting.
