    Yet, foreign powers have fueled and funded the war in Syria.

    Now they are again organising talks to try to end it.

    Iran, Russia and Turkey have organised negotiations in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.

    It’s different from the regular venue in Geneva.

    And it’s an unusual combination of power-brokers, compared to the norm of the UN and the US.

    So are their chances of success more or less likely?
