Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday said that the virtual meeting of the presidents of Iran, Russia, and Turkey on Syria was “constructive.”
“Just concluded very constructive (virtual) summit of the Astana Process, hosted by President Hassan Rouhani,” Zarif tweeted.
“Parties agreed to continue coordination among the three guarantors, focusing on tension reduction, political process and humanitarian relief,” said Zarif.
During the videoconference on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani discussed the latest developments in Syria.
They announced in a joint statement that “the Syrian war has no military solution and must be settled only through a political process.”
The three-way talks on Wednesday were held in line with the so-called Astana peace process which was launched in January 2017, in an effort to bring all warring parties in Syria to the negotiating table as a complementary part of the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva.
