    The head of the Syrian armed opposition delegation at the first two rounds of Astana talks on Syrian settlement, Mohammed Alloush, confirmed on Tuesday that the delegation decided not to participate in the Astana-3 talks.

    ASTANA (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Osama Abu Zeid, the Syrian armed opposition delegation's representative, told Sputnik that the armed opposition made a final decision to not participate in the third round of Astana talks.

    "By our statement and absence we want to show the world that Russians are proclaiming political resolution only in media. They have to change their policy, if they want a solution," Alloush said on his Twitter.

    On Tuesday, the Syria talks officially kicked off in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.
