Syrian government welcomes committee to discuss constitution

The Syrian government welcomes the formation of a committee that will discuss the current constitution and is expected to be formed at a congress to be convened by Russia in Sochi, Syrian state media said.


The congress marks a Russian effort to advance a political solution towards ending Syria's six-year-long war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people and forced millions to flee in the worst refugee crisis since World War Two.


UN-backed talks towards ending the conflict are due to resume in Geneva this week with the participation of the Syrian opposition to President Bashar al-Assad, who is militarily dominant in the conflict thanks to Russia and Iran.
