The leaders of the Astana trio (Russia, Turkey and Iran) will meet in Russia to discuss Syria at the beginning of 2019, Russian Special Presidential Envoy for the Middle East and Africa Mikhail Bogdanov said on Friday. 

“Now it is our turn to host the summit of the guarantor countries. It is due to take place tentatively during the first week of next year, that depends on the presidents’ work schedule,” said Bogdanov, who is also the deputy foreign minister.

The previous top-level meeting in this format was held in Tehran on September 7.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan may hold a meeting in the first six months of 2019.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
