IRAN SAYS ASTANA MEETING CRUCIAL TO MAINTAIN TRUCE IN SYRIA: SPOKESMAN

TEHRAN, Iran The inter-Syria meeting in Astana, Kazakhstan would help maintain truce and pave the way to find a political solution for Syria crisis, China's Xinhua news agency reported Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi as saying on Monday.

Reinforcing truce is considered as the main topic to be discussed during the two-day meeting in Astana, Qasemi said in his weekly press briefing.

The meeting would also serve as a means to facilitate the dispatch of humanitarian aid to the Arab country, he said.

The talks are the result of a Russian-Turkish initiative which excluded terror-designated groups such as the al-Qaeda-linked Nusra Front and the Daesh terror group.
