The Syrian National Dialogue Congress expected to convene in Russia's coastal city of Sochi has been postponed until February, according to local media reports on Monday.

"Preparations for the congress are currently underway. It will not be held until January, most likely in February," Russian news agency RIA Novosti said citing a diplomatic source who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

The presidents of Turkey, Russia and Iran met on Nov. 22 in Sochi to discuss progress made in the Astana peace talks and changes in de-escalation zones across Syria.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Vladimir Putin and Hassan Rouhani agreed to hold a Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi.

However, Erdogan warned that Turkey cannot share a platform with any terrorist organization which poses a threat to its national security.
