Iran, Russia and Turkey have mediated Astana talks to find a solution to establish durable ceasefire for Syria.

The Astana talks have brought representatives from the Damascus government and opposition groups to the negotiating table over the Syria conflict, which broke out in March 2011.

Five rounds of the discussions took place on January 23-24, February 15-16, March 14-15 and May 3-4 and July 4-5.

Iran and Russia are allies of the Syrian government, while Turkey supports the militant groups operating against the Damascus administration.

The Astana process helped kick-start a series of peace talks for Syria that had been going on under the auspices of the UN in the Swiss city of Geneva but that had stalled for almost a year.
