The guarantor countries (Turkey, Russia, and Iran) renewed in their final statement of the 19th round of Astana talks on Wednesday, their firm commitment to Syria’s sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity.

The statement also condemned stealing the Syrian oil, which its revenues should return to the Syrian people.
The statement condemned the repeated Israeli strikes on Syrian territory, which violate the international law and Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
The statement affirmed the need to continue combating terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, rejecting all separatist agendas.
The statement stressed that security and stability in northeastern Syria can only be accomplished through preserving Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
