Russia and Turkey to accelerate forming Syrian constitutional committee
Moscow and Ankara agreed to accelerate the process of forming the Syrian constitutional committee, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
"We have agreed to speed up the formation of the constitutional committee in cooperation with our colleagues from the United Nations and, of course, in contacts with the Syrian government and opposition," the Russian top diplomat said.
"We are confident that the constitutional committee will at last help start the Geneva process, which our Western colleagues talk so much about," Sputnik cited Lavrov as saying.
Originally, the accord to establish the committee was reached at the Syrian National Dialogue Congress, which was held in the Russian resort city of Sochi in January 2018.
