Once established, a new commission is to deal with the main legislation of Syria, which will satisfy opponents in future.

Special Presidential Representative on the Syrian settlement Alexander Lavrentiev and the Head of the Russian Delegation have made this proposition underlining that our country is not insisting on any particular decisions. Yet, they hope that negotiators might find some of the ideas interesting and these ideas could be discussed in detail during the Geneva talks on March 23. The head of our delegation has stated regretfully that the armed opposition is not going to consider a draft constitution offered by Russia but he did not want to focus on this fact.

Our delegation raised the question of prisoners’ exchange in the course of negotiations. Work group creation could facilitate the exchange of people imprisoned by the opponent parties.

Lavrentiev has acknowledged that it is tough talks, but the fact that the parties show their interest in discussing issues is promising well.

Meeting between Russia, Iran and Turkey – the countries guarantying the cease fire, should wrap up another round of talks on Syria in Astana.
