Prima facie, Lavrentiev will hold consultations with Iran’s powerful Secretary to the Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, on the eve of the first meeting in Astana tomorrow of the ‘trilateral mechanism’ of Russia, Iran and Turkey regarding the monitoring of ceasefire and separation of opposition groups from the extremist groups.
