The Islamic Republic of Iran, the Republic of Turkey, the Syrian Arab Republic, and Russia are set to hold low-level talks in Moscow, the capital and largest city of Russia.

The deputy foreign ministers of these four countries will meet in Moscow next week in a bid to continue the political dialogue between the countries’ four foreign ministers.

On Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran, asked if Tehran could join the talks in Russia. Cavusoglu agreed and allowed Iran to join the three-way talks as a fourth party. He said at a joint news conference with Amir-Abdollahian, “A meeting at the level of foreign ministers could be held at a later stage, at a time that we all see fit.”

Reportedly, the four countries are currently preparing for a possible ministerial meeting between Turkish Minister Cavusoglu and Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad in a four-way format. The Turkish Minister revealed, “Russia has offered to hold technical talks next week in preparation for a possible meeting between the foreign ministers.”
