    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Mohammed Alloush, the head of armed Syrian opposition at the Astana settlement talks, told Sputnik on Sunday that he had not yet received an invitation to participate in the new Syria settlement meeting in the Kazakh capital.

    On Saturday, the Kazakh Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the delegations of Damascus, Syrian armed opposition, UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and representatives of Jordan and the United States were invited to the next meeting on Syrian settlement to be held in Astana on February 15-16.
