Switzerland: Syria constitutional committee to reconvene on November 25 — UN envoy

The Syrian constitutional committee is set to reconvene on November 25, said UN Special Envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen at a press conference in the UN office at Geneva on Friday, following an initial round of discussions. Pedersen commended the Syrian committee for holding «very professional» discussions despite being «very painful» at times. «I believe that it has gone much better than most... Еще people would have expected,» said the UN envoy. The Syrian constitutional committee held its long-awaited first meeting on October 30, with the participation of 150 Syrian delegates, made up equally of representatives of the Syrian government, the opposition and civil society. The discussions were led by government co-chair Ahmad Kuzbari and his counterpart from the opposition Hadi al-Bahra. The committee is tasked with drafting a new constitution for Syria, which is seen as a step toward a political settlement in the war-ravaged country. Mandatory Credit: UNTV Mandatory Credit: UNTV
