The peace talks held in Astana ended with results which differed according to the views of participating and organizing parties.


Russia, Turkey, and Iran have all agreed on the importance of holding negotiations among the different fighting factions to set the mechanisms of a ceasefire in Syria. Consequently, the factions that inked the temporary ceasefire of December 29 in Syria were invited to convene in Astana.
The final statement of the Astana talks has reflected an obvious failure in motivating Syrian parties toward reaching a national agreement. The countries leading the talks pledged to set a mechanism to monitor the ceasefire. However, the issue remained pending.
According to Russia’s Foreign Minister, the talks have taken the efforts in ending the Syrian war to a new level, and Putin hoped these talks will pave the way for the Geneva meeting.
