The United Nations special envoy for Syria is “quietly hopeful” the UN can present an agreement to launch a constitutional committee before world leaders gather in late September, 2019.
The development is seen as a step which could lead to a political solution to end the violent eight-year deadly bloody conflict, that killed over 500.000 people so far.
Geir Pedersen told the UN Security Council on Thursday the package to resolve outstanding names, terms of reference and rules of procedure“is nearly finalized, and the outstanding differences are, in my assessment, comparatively minor.”
Formation of a constitutional committee is key to political reforms and new elections meant to unify the rest Syria, now occupied by hostile foreign mercenaries.
Last month, Pedersen discussed the formation of the constitutional committee with Syrian authorities in Damascus.
