    Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will take part in the talks on the Syrian settlement in Moscow on December 27 alongside his Russian and Iranian counterparts, Sergey Lavrov and Javad Zarif, Turkish ambassador to Russia said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that no contacts on the country leaders' level have been scheduled to be held during the talks.

    Peskov added that the current ceasefire in Syria's Aleppo and the beginning of the evacuation from the city were partly linked to some of the issues discussed by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a phone conversation on Wednesday.

    "Yes, we can confirm that on December 27 this meeting will be held, Turkish Foreign Minister will arrive in Moscow for talks with his counterparts from Russia and Iran," Huseyin Dirioz told reporters.
