New meeting on Syria may be held in Astana
Kazakhstan is ready to host another technical meeting on settling the Syrian crisis, if the need for such a meeting arises, the Kazakh Deputy Foreign Minister Mukhtar Tleuberdi said today.
"Nothing can be said for sure yet, the Geneva talks on Syria are underway. Depending on their progress, the need for technical meetings will be assessed," TASS cited him as saying.
According to the Kazakh diplomat, after the Geneva talks conclude, it will become clear "what issues should be discussed at technical meetings, whether it will be the ceasefire or compliance with the guarantees."
Tleuberdi stressed that Kazakhstan was always ready to provide a platform for international meetings on solving the Syrian crisis. "An important thing is that participants in talks receive specific security guarantees when they come here," the Kazakh deputy foreign minister concluded.
