There is no threat of disruption of the intra-Syrian negotiations in Astana, head of the Russian delegation, Presidential Envoy for the Syrian Settlement, Alexander Lavrentiev, said on Tuesday.
“The Astana process continues and is moving forward. I would not talk about any threat of derailing the talks,” he emphasized. “We have a lot of work to do. There are many issues concerning the ceasefire and all other issues related to the Syrian settlement, which we need to discuss. Naturally, we will do that.”
“Astana was originally created as a mechanism for trilateral cooperation,” the diplomat recalled.” “There are quite a few documents that need to be discussed and will contribute to consolidating the ceasefire. They require very careful, detailed discussion and work.”
