    A final session of the seventh round of talks aimed at ending Syria's six-year war has taken place in Kazakhstan's capital, Astana.

    The meeting is expected to call for a ceasefire between government forces and rebel groups for at least six months.

    But Syria's opposition groups have expressed serious doubts over the possibility of real change, saying the Damascus government, backed by Russia and Iran, have breached previous agreements reached at Astana.
