All participants of worldwide meeting on Syria arrive in Astana”

According to the Foreign Office, bilateral and multilateral talks scheduled for today will be held in "closed door" format, and the plenary meeting is scheduled for October 31.

Al-Jazeera cited sources as saying the meeting will also discuss the release of hostages and prisoners, delivery of food and aid to besieged areas, the return of dead bodies, and the search for missing persons.

Representatives of the Syrian government and some rebel groups attend the sessions, and the United States, the United Nations, and Jordan generally send observers.

Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry said earlier that all parties to the Astana talks on Syria had confirmed their participation in the upcoming talks.

The Turkish delegation will be chaired by Deputy Undersecretary of the Turkish Foreign Ministry Sedat Onal, while Special Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentiev will lead Russian team and Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Jaberi Ansari will head his country's delegation, Abdrakhmanov said on Oct 27.

The 7th round of negotiations will be held on October 30-31 in Astana.

The talks, brokered by Turkey, Iran and Russian Federation, will focus on strengthening the ceasefire that came into effect on December 30.

During the sixth round of Astana talks in September, Iran, Russia and Turkey agreed on a deal to establish and patrol a de-escalation zone in Syria's northern Idlib province.

De-escalation zones in Syria allowed to significantly reduce the scale of the conflict and contributed to the improvement of the humanitarian situation in Syria.

Syria has been locked in civil war since March 2011.
