    UN's Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura has arrived in Astana to participate in intra-Syrian talks, Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry spokesman Anuar Jainakov said Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The peace negotiations on Syria will take place on Monday in Astana.

    "Staffan de Mistura has arrived in Astana," Jainakov told RIA Novosti.

    The Syrian opposition groups agreed to attend the talks brokered by Russia, Turkey and Iran as an attempt to end the six-year civil war in the country, which sees government forces fighting against a number of opposition and terrorist groups, including the Islamic State, which is banned in Russia as other states worldwide.
