Tehran, IRNA – The 7th Conference of Astana Process guarantor states was held on Tuesday night, in the present of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Turkey’s President Recep Teyyip Erdogan at Tehran Summit Meetings Hall.

In the tripartite meeting, the presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey exchanged views on the latest developments in Syria and ways for boosting campaign against terrorism.

Iran and Turkey had two years ago held a Strategic Cooperation Supreme Council meeting, hosted by Tehran.

Also, ‘The 6th Conference of Astana Process Guarantor Countries” in the summer of 2020 was held as a videoconference due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Russia, Turkey and Iran have been during the past few years pursuing the Astana Peace Process, aimed at ending over 11 years of war in Syria, and this is the first year after the coronavirus pandemic that President Raisi is hosting the event.

The first Conference of Astana Process Guarantor Countries after the initial meeting in Astana, Kazakhstan, was held in Sochi, Russia, in the presence of representatives of Iran, Russia and Turkey, aimed at brokering a ceasefire and finding a political solution in November 2017.

Speech by President of Russia Vladimir Putin at the summit of the guarantor states of the Astana process on July 19 2022.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Raisi, Mr Erdogan, colleagues,
First, I would like to thank President Raisi for inviting us to visit Tehran for our today’s meeting in the framework of the Astana process. Of course, it is best to talk in-person in this format, and now we have the opportunity to do so.
We hope to discuss in a practical and business-like spirit the urgent issues of stabilisation in Syria, and there are quite a few of them at present.
Overall, the joint efforts of Russia, Iran and Turkiye to facilitate the comprehensive settlement of the crisis in the Syrian Arab Republic are highly productive. Owing to the assistance and support of our countries, the level of violence in Syria has decreased significantly; peaceful life is returning and the country is gradually rebuilding its economy and social sphere.
