MOSCOW- Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has stressed that Astana is getting ready for hosting the talks on Syria, but the meeting doesn’t substitute the Geneva process.
When asked whether Kremlin confirms the invitation submitted to the administration of President-elect Donald Trump to participate in the talks on the Syrian settlement in Astana, he said: "No".
According to Peskov, it "would not say anything particular about the proposal."
"Astana is getting ready, the meeting is being prepared, which is a rather challenging process. It does not substitute for other formats, including the Geneva process, it looks more like supplementary parts," he said, according to Itar Tass.
