The latest round of the talks was held late October, with the three states agreeing on a Russian initiative for holding a congress with the participation of Syria’s conflicting sides in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. The fresh round of talks comes as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin earlier on Monday ordered Russian forces in Syria to begin withdrawing during a surprise visit to the war-torn country. Putin visited Russia's Hmeimim air base in Latakia province on Monday and also held talks with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "I order the defense minister and the chief of general staff to start withdrawing the Russian group of troops to their permanent bases," RIA quoted Putin as saying. "The task of fighting armed bandits here in Syria, a task that was essential to solve with the help of extensive use of armed force, has for the most part, been solved and solved spectacularly," Putin said. Following Putin’s remarks, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that elements of Moscow’s military contingent to Syria had already begun returning to Russia, the RIA news agency reported. It should be noted that within the context of diplomatic talks, Iran, Russia and Turkey, which serve as guarantor states of a ceasefire in Syria, agreed on setting up four de-escalation zones in the country’s militant-held northwestern province of Idlib, the central province of Homs and the Eastern Ghouta area outside of the capital Damascus. In a sign of a closer cooperation between the three Astana partners, Putin visited Ankara yesterday, meeting with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "We are conducting joint work to prepare and convene the Syrian National Dialogue Congress at the beginning of the next year," he said after talks with Erdogan. "It is a secret to no one that I spoke about it with President Assad during my today’s visit to Syria." Previous rounds of negotiations under the auspices of the UN over the past five years have failed to achieve tangible results, mainly due to the opposition’s insistence that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should cede power.
