US using Nusra terrorists to hinder Astana talks: Syrian FM
 The Syrian foreign minister says the United States is enlisting the help of al-Nusra Front terrorist group to undermine the achievements of the intra-Syrian peace talks in the Kazakh capital, Astana.
Walid Muallem made the remark following a meeting with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, on the sidelines of the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York on Friday.
    “They (the Americans) are dissatisfied with the successful outcome of the Astana peace process; that’s why they use their [assets], including Jabhat al-Nusra, to impede the agreements that had been negotiated,” Russia’s Tass news agency quoted Muallem as saying.
The Astana talks, mediated by Iran, Russia, and Turkey, have brought representatives from the Damascus government and opposition groups to the negotiating table in a bid to end the foreign-backed militancy in Syria, which broke out in March 2011. Six rounds of the negotiations have so far taken place — on January 23-24, February 15-16, March 14-15, May 3-4, July 4-5, and September 14-15.
The talks resulted in an agreement on four de-escalation zones across Syria, which have sharply reduced fighting in the conflict zones. The fourth zone covers Idlib, and al-Nusra has said it would not respect the agreement.
Western countries, including the US, which sponsor the anti-Damascus militants, have largely been sidelined in the diplomatic efforts in Geneva, especially as a series of UN-backed talks which the Western governments favor has achieved little success in comparison with the Astana talks.
Elsewhere in his comments, Muallem said that thanks to the fruitful cooperation between Syrian and Russian forces, the fight against extremists in Syria was approaching its end.
The Syrian people “are getting more and more confident that they are writing the last chapter of the crisis,” he said.
Russia has been conducting air raids against Daesh and other terrorist outfits inside Syria at the Damascus government’s request since September 2015.
Additionally, the top Syrian diplomat accused the US of seeking to hamper the counterterrorism offensive led by Syrian troops in the city of Day al-Zawr.
