Syrian Government Ready to Contribute to Creating Constitutional Commission - Lavrentyev

The Syrian government is ready to contribute to the creation of the Syrian constitutional commission and even to create a small group which will be dealing with drafting a new constitution or amending the existing one, Russian special presidential envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev said on Tuesday.

GENEVA (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 12th September, 2018) The Syrian government is ready to contribute to the creation of the Syrian constitutional commission and even to create a small group which will be dealing with drafting a new constitution or amending the existing one, Russian special presidential envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev said on Tuesday.

"The Syrian government expresses its readiness to contribute in every way to the formation of the constitutional committee and launching of its productive work. They are ready to go further, to work on creating a narrow group that will be directly involved in the preparation of a new constitution or amending the current constitution," Lavrentyev told reporters.

Earlier on Tuesday, Russia, Turkey and Iran, which are the Syrian ceasefire guarantor states, held a quadrilateral meeting with UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, during which constitutional commission and Idlib situation were reviewed.

According to Lavrentyev, Russia will continue very active consultations with Turkish and Iranian colleagues, who have direct influence on both Damascus and the opposition.

"It is very important for the commission to operate successfully so that it could bring real results. And we believe that this commission should serve the interests of the Syrian people and not to operate just for the show," Lavrentyev added.
