ASTANA - A joint Russian, Turkish and Iranian task force may look into political settlement issues for the Syria conflict, Alexander Lavrentiev, the head of the Russian delegation at peace talks in Astana, said on Thursday.

Earlier, the head of the Syrian government delegation blamed rebel negotiators for a lack of progress in the talks in the Kazakh capital.

Russia, which backs President Bashar Assad's government, and Turkey, which supports the rebels, are brokering negotiations.
