Speaking at a news conference during a visit to Japan, Putin said that he had agreed with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan to hold peace talks on Syria in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana.

Those talks would be in addition to United Nations brokered talks that have been taking place intermittently in Geneva, Putin told reporters.
