The two-day negotiations which kicked off on Thursday are mainly aimed at working out the details of an agreement to create a fourth de-escalation zone in Syria in the western province of Idlib.

The negotiations are supervised by Iran, Russia and Turkey as the mediators of the talks.

The first meeting was held between the Russian delegation headed by Moscow's special envoy on Syria Alexander Lavrentiev and UN special envoy for Syria Staffan De Mistura.

The next meeting is scheduled to be held between the Russian and US delegations.
Earlier on Wednesday, representatives from Iran, Russia and Turkey held an expert-level meeting on how on a de-escalation zone in Idlib Province.

Since January, Astana hosted five rounds of peace talks which have so far resulted in an agreement on four de-escalation zones across Syria.

The talks in Astana have been going on in tandem with UN-brokered Geneva talks.
