Russia, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s most powerful ally, pushed for peace talks in Astana after Assad’s forces won a major victory in eastern Aleppo.

The Astana talks are also backed by Turkey. The United States, which led failed efforts to launch peace talks last year, has not been directly involved in the latest diplomacy.
