Tehran (IP) - The Leader of the Islamic Revolution received the President of Russia ahead of the Astana Summit.

Iran PressIran news: Vladimir Putin arrived in Tehran to participate in tripartite negotiation between Presidents Iran, Russia, and Turkiye, known as the Astana peace process, to consult about terrorism in Syria.

The crisis in Syria started in 2011 with a massive attack by terrorist groups supported by Saudi Arabia, the United States, and their allies to change the equations of the region in favor of the Zionist regime.

The Astana process began in January 2017 on the back of a Syria-wide ceasefire between the Syrian government and armed groups in Kazakhstan’s then capital city of Astana. Although the city was renamed Nur-Sultan in 2019, the negotiating format retained the name.

Iran and Russia, as the allies of the Syrian government and Turkey, which sides with the opposition, set up the process to end the Syrian conflict through the involvement of the Syrian government and the opposition.
