ASTANA, August 8. /TASS/. The agenda of the international talks in Astana on the settlement of the ongoing conflict in Syria will be defined at the meeting of guarantor states in Tehran, Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov said on Tuesday.
"As it had been planned before, a meeting of experts from guarantor states is held these days in Tehran," Abdrakhmanov told journalists. "The agenda for the next round of talks in Astana will be defined based on the results of this meeting."
"There are no changes regarding the timeframe and we are preparing to hodl the talks in late August," the top diplomat of Kazakhstan added.
The previous fifth round of talks on the Syrian conflict resolution was held on July 4-5.
