The 11th round of Syria peace talks, known as the Astana Peace Process, on the Syria crisis begin in the Kazakh capital, with the presence of representatives from the Damascus government and opposition as well as Iran, Russia and Turkey as the three guarantor states of the peace process as well as international observers - the UN and Jordan.

Two-day meeting of Astana Peace Process also addresses the return of refugees, release of prisoners.

The last round of the Astana Peace Process was held in Sochi, Russia, in July.

Conflicts erupted in Syria back in 2011, when a small group of opposition forces took up arms against Damascus.

Soon, however, a mix of international terrorists and paid mercenaries mingled with and then largely sidestepped the armed Syrian opposition groups, effectively turning the Arab country into a battlefield for foreign governments opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

But the Syrian military, with advisory military help from Iran and Russia — and a Russian aerial bombardment campaign — has retaken control of much of the country, and the conflict is generally believed to be winding down.

More than 330,000 people have been killed in Syria and millions have been driven from their homes since the conflict began in March 2011, and the infrastructure of the country destroyed.

About 1.2 million Syrian refugees have returned to their homes. 101/205
