    The Syrian opposition will discuss the consolidation of a ceasefire brokered by Russia and Turkey late last year without delving into political matters at upcoming talks with the Syrian government, opposition delegation member Sayeed Nakrash told Sputnik on Monday.

    ASTANA (Sputnik) — The armed opposition is holding final consultations before direct talks with the Syrian government delegation in the Kazakh capital.

    "Today we will discuss only the strengthening of the ceasefire and the implementation of the 12, 13 and 14 articles of the UN Resolution 2254. The political aspect of the Syrian crisis will not be discussed today," Nakrash said, adding that the delegation is ready for direct talks with the government.
