Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Jaberi Ansari underlined the importance of Astana talks and efforts to establish peace and stability in Syria as one of the Islamic Republic’s prioritized foreign policies.

“At present, the Astana talks and (in fact) Syria issue is one of the Foreign Ministry’s priorities, and frequent exchange of views with the Arab Asian countries have expanded to this end,” Jaberi Ansari said on Sunday.
