December 15, 2018

TEHRAN – Russian President Putin’s special envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentiev traveled to Tehran on Saturday and sat down for talks with Iran’s Syria negotiator, Hossein Jaberi Ansari.

These two diplomats preside over Iran and Russia’s delegations in the Astana talks on Syria.

The United Nations special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura will hold talks with senior officials from Iran, Russia and Turkey, as guarantors of the Syria peace process, in Geneva early next week, a UN statement said on Friday.

The upcoming talks will serve setting up a committee to draft a new Syrian constitution and usher in elections.
