After concluding the last Astana Meeting in Kazakhstan, Russia, Iran, and Turkey, have published a joint statement supporting the unity of Syria and normalisation of ties with the Syrian regime. The separate statements by the individual signatories are also similar and Turkey’s statement is published below.
Russia has also recently escalated air attacks in Idlib while Turkey is demanding the dissolution of Kurdish armed groups who are controlling the North-East of Syria. Turkey, which is a NATO member, is approving of Russia’s military support for the Syrian government in its campaign to unify the country under its control.
In a surprise statement, the Kazakh government has also claimed it will no longer be holding the Astana Meetings.
