Expert consultations will be succeeded by high-level meetings on Thursday and Friday.

A previous round of Astana talks was held in July.

The sixth round of Astana talks on the Syrian settlement is expected to be successful, with a whole package of documents signed, including an agreement on the de-escalation zone in Idlib, a source close to the talks told Sputnik Wednesday.

"This Astana meeting is widely expected to be a huge success, to finalize the whole Astana process since January. A lot of work has been done at the expert level and the highest political level, to reach a final agreement on the whole package of documents, on all de-escalation zones, including the one in Idlib, on their borders, monitoring etc. There are all the prerequisites for it," the source said.

According to the source, if this round is a success and all agreements are reached, "then you only need a political agreement as the next step."
