Ninth Round Of Syria Peace Talks Under Way In Astana

A delegation of the Syrian armed opposition has arrived in Astana to take part in an global meeting on resolving the Syrian crisis, Kazakh Foreign Ministry Spokesman Anuar Zhainakov told reporters on Tuesday.

Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry earlier reported that, in addition to Russia, Iran and Turkey acting as guarantors of the Syrian ceasefire, the delegations of the Syrian government and the opposition, United Nations representatives and observers from the USA and Jordan had been invited to the meeting.

Although the US had sent a delegation to eight previous rounds of talks in Astana, it did not send observers to the latest negotiations.

Monday's talks are the first time the three guarantors have met since Iran launched rockets into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights last week, prompting the fiercest Israeli attack on Syria since the start of the war. "This time round the Americans, unfortunately, have decided not to support our global efforts", Lavrentyev said. A Syrian rebel delegation was expected to arrive late on Monday ahead of Tuesday's plenary session, according to Kazakhstan's foreign ministry. The Iranian delegation held a meeting with the Russian team.
