On September 26, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov took part in the trilateral ministerial meeting in the Astana format on the sidelines of the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

 

The meeting participants held a detailed discussion of the developments on the ground, particularly, in the Idlib de-escalation zone, as well as the prospects for the launch of a stable political settlement process in Syria.  The participants spoke highly of the agreement on stabilising the situation in Idlib reached in Sochi on September 17, which allows safeguarding civilians amid the ongoing uncompromising fight against terrorism. They reaffirmed their commitment to facilitating efforts to establish and launch of a Constitutional Committee in Geneva on the basis of the decisions of the Syrian National Dialogue Congress and UNSC Resolution 2254, which will allow Syrians to determine their future independently.
