Guterres announces the formation of the Syrian Constitutional Committee

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced on Monday the formation of a Syrian constitutional committee, comprising representatives of the regime, opposition and civil society, to review the constitution with a view to finding a political solution to the conflict. The military has been going on for more than eight years.

"I strongly believe that the formation of a constitutional committee, organized and led by the Syrians themselves, could be the beginning of a political road to a solution," Guterres told reporters at UN headquarters in New York.

The UN special envoy to Syria, Geir Pederson, said Monday that he had concluded "very successful" discussions with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem on the formation of the constitutional committee.

The UN envoy also said he ended similarly successful talks with the head of the Syrian opposition negotiating committee, Nasr al-Hariri, who lives in Turkey.
