TEHRAN – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that Moscow, Tehran and Ankara as initiators of the intra-Syria dialogue in Astana, will cooperate on preparing an agreement to create de-escalation zones in Syria.

“The new round of the Astana talks slated for July in Kazakhstan’s capital will focus on creating de-escalation zones to reduce tensions in Syria with the support of the Syrian government and the country’s armed opposition groups who have joined the peace process,” Lavrov told reporters on Tuesday, IRNA reported.
