MOSCOWA, March 5. /TASS/. Representatives of the Syrian opposition movements, religious organizations and military units suggest establishing a group, which will offer a draft constitution to be further discussed by the nation.
This suggestion was presented on Friday at a meeting, which was organized at the Khmeimim air base, where the Russian Reconciliation Center is located.
One of the meeting’s participants said it featured members of the movement For Democratic Syria, leader of the National Conference, as well as religious leaders representing opposing military groupings, which pushed out the Jabhat al-Nusra militants from the regions they used to control.
The consultations’ participants agreed the announced truce had given an impetus to launching a political dialogue. "Despite the remaining disputes, the meeting participants share common views on Syria’s future."
"It is a secular state with its maintained integrity and sovereignty."
The ceasefire in Syria came into effect on February 27. The truce does not apply to the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra extremist groups (outlawed in Russia) and other groups designated as terrorist organizations by the UN Security Council.
The Joint Statement of the United States and the Russian Federation, as Co-Chairs of the ISSG (International Syria Support Group), on Cessation of Hostilities in Syria of February 22, 2016, reads: "The United States and the Russian Federation together call upon all Syrian parties, regional states and others in the international community to support the immediate cessation of violence and bloodshed in Syria and to contribute to the swift, effective and successful promotion of the UN-facilitated political transition process in accordance with U.N. Security Council Resolution 2254, the February 11 Statement of the ISSG, the 2015 Vienna statements of the ISSG, and the 2012 Geneva Communiqu·."
On February 23, Russia announced establishment of the Reconciliation Centre at the Khmeimin airbase in the Latakia Province. The U.S. established a similar center in Amman (the capital city of Jordan).
