The eight round of talks on the settlement of the situation in Syria may be held in the Kazakh capital city Astana on December 21-22, a source close to negotiations told Sputnik on Tuesday.
“Tentatively on December 21-22, these dates are being agreed on so far,” the source said.
Talks on the military aspect of the Syrian peace process have been held in Astana on a nearly monthly basis since this January.
Russia, alongside Iran and Turkey, is a guarantor of the ceasefire regime in Syria. It has been aiding the Syrian government both by supporting its fight against terrorist groups and by providing humanitarian assistance to people in the country.
