    The upcoming Astana talks on Syria differ from the previous rounds because direct negotiations between members of the armed opposition are possible, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Speaking at a briefing, Zakharova said that non-direct talks took place at the previous round of negotiations between political opponents.

    "Here we are speaking of the possibility of a direct dialogue between those who was shooting each other just yesterday," Zakharova said.
