The construction of two hospitals is planned in Al-Iss in the south of Aleppo, and in Tall Tukan, east of Idlib. Also, three airfields will be built, one in Al-Iss, one in Tall Tukan, and one in Shir in the west of Hama province.

These facilities will be located next to the twelve observation posts which have already been built by the Turkish army.

Turkish Armed Forces operate within the framework of the Astana agreement aimed at de-escalation in the region.

First peace talks on Syria in the city of Astana started in late January 2017. They were initiated by Russia, Turkey, and Iran, who acted as guarantors of a peaceful settlement. The last, ninth round of talks took place in the middle of May this year.

In mid-June 2018, Mukhtar Tleuberdi, the First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, announced that his country intends to continue providing a negotiating platform for a peaceful settlement in Syria.
