AKIPRESS.COM - The importance of the Astana format on the settlement of the situation in Syria is rising now considering escalating tensions in the Middle East, Russia's special presidential representative for the Syrian settlement Alexander Lavrentyev said, TASS reported.

"The importance of this forum is indeed rising now considering all those worrisome developments that are currently taking place in the world, considering escalating tensions in the Middle East," he said, adding that "the relevance of deepened bilateral, trilateral talks of not only member states, but also all those participating in the forum, is huge."
