Moscow, Russia – Moscow hopes that the Syrian national dialogue conference in Sochi will focus on the country’s new constitution and elections.

“We hope this forum will make it possible to gather all at a negotiating table to discuss what is to be done in future,” Russian president’s special envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentyev said to a news conference. 

“How to launch a constitutional reform, what is to be done to waste no time and adopt a new constitution and hold UN-monitored parliamentary and presidential elections. It would be very useful,” he continued.

“Concerning such an important issue as national dialogue, it is unadvisable and unjustified to advance any preliminary conditions for one’s participation,” he said. “Because the Syrian central government can also come out with preliminary conditions. So, all demands that may be rather inflated should be put aside in order to go forward and try to prove one’s point of view.”
