On January 13, the Russian Foreign Ministry hosted trilateral consultations between the interdepartmental delegations of Russia, Iran and Turkey. They were attended by Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Presidential Representative for the Middle East and Africa Mikhail Bogdanov, Foreign Minister’s Special Representative on the Middle East Settlement and Director of the Ministry’s Middle East and North Africa Department, Sergey Vershinin, Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran Hossein Jaberi Ansari, and Deputy Undersecretary for the Middle East and Africa at the Foreign Ministry of Turkey Sedat Onal.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov delivered opening remarks at the talks.

The discussions focused on preparations for the international meeting on the Syrian settlement to be held in Astana, Kazakhstan, on January 23. The diplomats agreed that the upcoming meeting, following up on the intra-Syrian agreements reached on December 29, 2016 and UN Security Council Resolution 2336, should create conditions for a lasting and sustainable cessation of hostilities in Syria and the continued fight against the UN-listed terrorist organisations, and promote a political settlement in the Syrian crisis based on UN Security Council Resolution 2254 and International Syria Support Group decisions.
