Two Lists for Syria Constitutional Commission Coordinated by Guarantors, UN - Lavrentiev

The participants of the meeting on Syria in Geneva have in principle coordinated two lists of Syrian constitutional commission from the opposition and the government, however, they will require final approval, Russian Special Presidential Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev said on Tuesday.

GENEVA (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 11th September, 2018) The participants of the meeting on Syria in Geneva have in principle coordinated two lists of Syrian constitutional commission from the opposition and the government, however, they will require final approval, Russian Special Presidential Envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev said on Tuesday.

"Indeed, in principle, I think this is a step forward, albeit a small one ... we agreed on the first two lists a list from the government and a list from the opposition. Of course, these lists will then require a final approval by representatives of the three guarantor countries and [UN Special Envoy for Syria] Staffan de Mistura, after the third list from the so-called civil society group is coordinated," Lavrentyev told reporters after a meeting at Russia's Permanent Mission to the United Nations Office in Geneva.

Earlier on Tuesday, Russia, Turkey and Iran held quadrilateral meeting with de Mistura, during which constitutional commission and Idlib situation were reviewed.

"The work itself includes efforts on several directions and not only the formation of the constitutional commission and the formation of a list, to which a close attention was paid ... Another interesting matter are procedural issues, which were discussed as well ... which will then be stated in a package of measures that will promote the political process," Lavrentyev added.

Lavrentiev added that Syrian truce guarantors might gather again in Geneva within month to finalize agreements on the Syria constitutional commission.
