MEHR: The quadrilateral meeting of the Iranian, Russian, Syrian, and Turkish deputy foreign ministers started in Moscow on Tuesday.
Ali Asghar Khaji, a senior aide on political affairs to Iran’s foreign minister, heads the Iranian delegation in the meeting.
The meeting was initially scheduled for March 15-16 but was postponed due to technical reasons.
The objective of the talks is to normalize dialogue between Damascus and Ankara, as well as to prepare a future meeting of the foreign ministers of the four countries. The negotiations will be a follow-up to the meeting of Turkish and Syrian defense ministers that took place in December for the first time in 11 years.
The sides will also discuss the situation in the region and issues on the common agenda.
