The seventh round of peace talks on Syria in Kazakh capital, Astana, will lead to the necessary mutual understanding between the three guarantor countries - Iran, Russia and Turkey.

Once the Astana talks conclude, they will continue to intra-Syrian talks in Geneva on November 28.

Answering the question on whether the parties have reached an agreement on the boundaries of the ceasefire zones at the meeting, Kasemi said that the 7th round of the peace talks on Syria will focus on two issues - mine clearance and the exchange of prisoners.

The seventh worldwide meeting on Syria is being held in Kazakhstan's capital of Astana on October 30-31.

During this round of talks, the delegation is expected to discuss a way to combat worldwide terrorism as well as adopt a joint statement on demining in Syria along with working on releasing prisoners and hostages, transferring bodies of those who lost their lives along with searching for missing persons. The parties also intend to consider combating worldwide terrorism and adopt a joint statement on humanitarian demining in Syria.

The Astana talks, which will focus on strengthening a cease-fire which came into effect on December 30, are brokered by Turkey, which backs the opposition, and Russian Federation and Iran, who support Assad's regime.

To date, six rounds of negotiations on the ongoing Syrian conflict were held in Astana.

Russia, Turkey and Iran will deploy forces to control the de-escalation zones as well as set up joint coordination centers to monitor activities within them. The zones will include certain areas of Idlib, Latakia, Aleppo, Hama, Homs, Eastern Ghouta, Deraa and al-Quneitra.

The latest round of talks begins days after the Islamic State militants group was forced out of its de facto capital Raqa in northern Syria, in a major victory for the US-backed Kurdish-Arab Syrian Democratic Forces.

Despite backing opposite sides in the war, Ankara and Moscow have been working closely on Syria since a 2016 reconciliation ended a crisis caused by the shooting down of a Russian war plane.

"I can confirm that Staffan de Mistura will not participate in the talks".
