"Now the countries-guarantors - the Russian Federation, the Turkish Republic and the Islamic Republic of Iran - are holding active and intense consultations between each other to finally set the dates of the next round of the Astana process meeting on the Syrian settlement," Abdrakhmanov said.
"Preliminarily, our Russian partners have informed us that they are going to offer their partners to gather in Astana on June 12-13," he said, without giving details on the participants of the meeting.
The sides will discuss the implementation of the memorandum on de-escalation zones, the foreign minister said. "As I understand, it is essential now for the countries-guarantors to confirm the positive tendencies, which we see now on the territory of Syria."
