Syrian Constitutional Committee and UN Special Envoy for Syria trilateral and Middle Third Meeting

The two Co-chairs of the Small Body of the Syrian Constitutional Committee, Mr. Ahmad Kuzbari of the Syrian government side, and Mr. Hadi al-Bahra from the Syrian opposition, met today (17 October) in the presence of Geir Pedersen, UN Special Envoy for Syria, at the United Nations in Geneva.

They prepared the upcoming sixth session of the Small Body of the Syrian Constitutional Committee, which is going to start on Monday, 18 October. It’s the first of its kind since the starting of the Constitutional Committee.

The current sixth round is to discuss the proposals of the basic principles of the constitution in accordance with the agreed methodology based on three pillars that formed the basis of the Special Envoy’s engagement with them: 1) respect for the Terms of Reference and Core Rules of Procedure; 2) the submission of texts of basic constitutional principles in advance of the meetings; and 3) regular Co-Chair meetings with Mr. Pedersen before and during the coming session. The Co-Chairs are also committed to setting provisional dates for future meetings and discussing a workplan.
