    Russia, Turkey and Iran are holding new talks on Syria in Kazakhstan capital.

    Delegations of the Syrian government and the opposition are expected to attend. The United Nations and Jordan have been invited as observers.

    The negotiations will not lead to an internationally backed political deal, but Russia is pushing for a breakthrough on a UN constitutional committee that it can sell to the West.
