Walid Muallem, the Syrian Foreign Minister, has said that the United States have used the al-Nusra Front terrorist group to hinder the Syria peace talks held at Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. 

“They (the Americans) are dissatisfied with the successful outcome of the Astana peace process; that’s why they use their [assets], including Jabhat al-Nusra, to impede the agreements that had been negotiated,” Russia’s TASS news agency quoted Muallem as saying.

The Astana talks, mediated by Iran, Russia, and Turkey, have brought representatives from the Damascus government and opposition groups to the negotiating table in a bid to end the foreign-backed militancy in Syria, which broke out in March 2011, with six rounds of the negotiations have so far taken place — on January 23-24, February 15-16, March 14-15, May 3-4, July 4-5, and September 14-15, PressTV explained.

Muallem also praised the cooperation between Syrian and Russian forces and claimed the war in Syria was approaching its end.

The Syrian people “are getting more and more confident that they are writing the last chapter of the crisis,” he said.
