Representatives of the Syrian government and opposition gathered in Geneva for a second round of meetings of the Syrian Constitutional Committee.
The 45 members of the small drafting body of the Syrian Constitutional Committee arrived at the Palais des Nations in Geneva to resume their discussions on a new constitutional arrangement for Syria.
The Office of the UN Special Envoy for Syria said that it would continue work with the Syrian Constitutional Committee this week. Geir Pedersen said: “This launch was a sign of hope for the Syrian people and a chance for the Syrian parties to begin a direct dialogue they lead and own on the future of a broken country.”
The Committee consists of 150 participants, with 50 each from the Government, the opposition, and civil society.
