TEHRAN, May 17, YJC - Iran’s FM Spokesman says Astana meeting can in some way influence the out com of Geneva meeting.
Astana and Geneva Meeting complement each other: FM SpokesmanTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Iranian FM Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi, stressing peace as the pivot of Astana and Geneva meetings said, "keeping track of negotiations on peace and ceasefire in Syria was of two trends; first, Geneva negotiations the 6th round of which is being held; and second, keeping track of peace in Syria with role playing of Iran, Russia, and Turkey in Astana negotiations ultimately leading to some successes in maintenance of ceasefire”.

Distinguishing between Geneva meeting and Astana meeting, the FM Spokes man said "in the Geneva meeting the Syrian groups partake under UN supervision and some countries act as supervisor, yet there is no certain mechanism to connect Astana meeting to Geneva meeting in an organized way, thus making no obligation for the to parties in the meeting”.

Ghasemi asserted that the results of the Astana negotiations can have some effects on the outcome of the Geneva meeting, and that providing solutions for Syrian crisis is not confined to Astana meeting, for Syria crisis is too complicated with many players involved in.

The five previous rounds of the UN-mediated negotiations in Geneva brought together representatives from the Damascus government and opposition groups but failed to yield concrete results.
