Ahmad al-Othman from the Sultan Murad faction also told AFP that "the rebel groups have chose to go to the talks".

Russian Federation and Iran, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's most powerful allies, and Turkey, pushed for the talks in Astana after Syrian government forces won a major victory in capturing eastern Aleppo late a year ago.
The United Nations also received an invitation to attend.
Due to Iran's opposition to United States participation in Astana meeting, Shamkhani underlined no joint invitation has been sent by the three countries to United States to attend the meeting.
More than 300,000 people have been killed and 11 million others displaced in nearly six years of conflict, which began with anti-government protests before escalating into a full-scale civil war.
Syria talks are set to kickoff next week and Russian Federation wants officials from the incoming Trump administration to attend the meeting in Kazakhstan.
President Bashar al-Assad has been quoted as telling French politicians that he is "optimistic" about next week's meeting and is "ready for reconciliation with [the rebels] on the condition that they lay down their arms".
