Peace talks over Syrian conflict with rebel leadership will continue in Astana, Kazakhstan. These peace talks are brokered by Iran and Russia backing the Syrian government. ISIS and Jihadists are excluded from the talks.

The new round of talks comes after the unlikely partners, Russia and Turkey have joined forces to end the fight.

The main negotiator for the new talks is Alexander Lavrentyev from Russia.

The last round of the talks was suspended in early 2016. Governments have been trying to find a solution to the conflict since it started in late 2011. There hasn't been much success.

Since the beginning of the conflict nearly six years ago 11 million people have been displaced and roughly 300k people have been killed.
