Guarantor States of Astana Process to Meet in Sochi

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced that a meeting of the leaders of guarantor states of the Astana process is scheduled for Feb. 14, 2019, in the Russian city of Sochi.

On Monday, Lavrov, in his speech to students at the Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University, in Bishkek, said, “the prospects for a settlement in Syria will be considered within a week to 10 days, i.e. on Feb. 14, at the upcoming summit between the presidents of Russia, Iran and Turkey in Sochi.”

He added that work is under way to complete the formation of the constitutional committee.

“In parallel with the war against terrorism, there is a political track in which Russia, Iran and Turkey adopted an initiative based on the decisions of the Syrian National Dialogue Congress, held a year ago in Sochi, which was set up to discuss the constitutional committee,” Lavrov said, adding that “work on this initiative is now complete.”
