The memorandum on the creation of four safe areas in Syria was signed by the guarantor countries of the Armistice, existing from the end of 2016 (Russia, Turkey and Iran), during the fourth round of the Syrian consultations in Astana, held on 3 and 4 May.

The armed opposition Syrian, present in the capital of Kazakhstan, delegitimized the agreement because it rejects any role for Iran in the peace process, considering that it is a country of “aggressor”.
