UN Syria envoy to host senior Turkish, Russian, Iranian officials
The U.N. envoy for Syria says he will host senior officials from Turkey, Iran, and Russia in Geneva next week to discuss efforts to create a constitutional committee that could help one day bring peace to the war-devastated country.
The approach marks a departure from his months of repeatedly hosting delegations from the government and opposition groups for talks in Geneva that largely failed.
De Mistura’s office said June 13 that the "consultations" among the unspecified officials are to take place in Geneva on June 18,19.
He will provide further details at a meeting with reporters on June 14, the statement added.
