Last Saturday in Syria came into force an agreement on the creation of a "de-escalation areas", after Russia, Iran and Turkey signed a memorandum in Astana. Representatives of the Syrian armed opposition left the negotiations. They said they could not accept the creation of "safe zones" in Syria, because it poses a threat to its territorial integrity. In addition, representatives of the opposition objected to Iran's participation in this agreement. They believe that Iran is a country-occupier, and therefore it should withdraw its armed forces from Syria.
