The representatives of the three guarantor countries met with UN Special Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura on Sept. 10-11 in Geneva, during which they discussed the formation of a constitutional committee and its codes of practice which constitute an important step in the struggle of finding a political solution to the Syrian crisis.
In a joint statement, all sides reaffirmed their resolve to continue joint efforts aimed at advancing the Syrian-led and Syrian-owned process for reaching a political settlement and reiterated their commitment to help establish and launch the work of the constitutional committee.
In the process of resolving the Syrian crisis, the following provisions were emphasized by the parties, focusing on the formation of the constitutional committee lists:
The representatives of Iran, Turkey and Russia agreed to pave the way for the success of joint consultations with the United Nations to facilitate the formation of Syrian constitutional committee, through setting up a technical team of experts.
It was also agreed that the third round of the consultations would be held in late October.
The meeting in Geneva follows up on the agreement signed at the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi in January, whose final statement called for the creation of a constitutional commission comprising government, opposition and Syrian civil society members.
