Director General for Multilateral Affairs and Globalisation at Belgium Ministry of Foreign Affairs Axel Kenes met with Ali-Asghar Khaji, a Senior Assistant to Iran's Foreign Minister in Special Political Affairs and Iran's senior negotiator in Yemen and Syria talks.
During the Wednesday meeting in Tehran, the two sides discussed Syria developments, including the latest situation in the northeast of Euphrates, the de-escalation zone in Idlib, the process of the formation of Syria’s Constitutional Committee, the issue of refugees and the reconstruction of Syria.
