Syrian conflict: Rebels threaten to boycott Astana talks

Syrian rebel groups say they are suspending participation in the preparations for peace talks planned by Russia and Turkey for later this month.

In a statement, the rebels cited “many and large violations” of the ceasefire by the Syrian government as the reason for their move.

Turkey and Russia brokered the ceasefire deal that has mostly held since last Thursday. The peace talks are due to be held in Astana, Kazakhstan.(BBC,2017)
