Russian Federation hopes Astana talks to give fresh impetus to Syrian settlement
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Guennadi Gatilov expressed his hope that the second meeting in Astana will boost the negotiating process to favor a meeting in Geneva on Syria, scheduled for February 23rd. Almost six years into the war, Assad seems militarily unassailable thanks to the decisive backing of Russian Federation and Iran. The Syrian opposition demands humanitarian aid access and the release of detainees before any negotiations over Syria's political future.
Previous efforts, which have involved indirect negotiations brokered by the U.N.'s envoy for Syria, resulted in little progress to resolve a war that began as peaceful protests against Assad before spiraling into a multi-party conflict.
