GENEVA, March 17./TASS/. It is still early to submit concrete proposals on the constitution and elections in Syria, the head of the Syrian government delegation, Bashar Jaafari, told TASS on Thursday.
He said the delegation had not submitted any proposals on the issues.
The Syrian government delegation to the inter-Syrian peace talks hopes that all Syrian opposition groups will be able to unite into one single delegation in Geneva.
He also said said the government delegation had informed UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura about its ideas and views as to basic elements for a political settlement.
The decision should be made collectively by all delegations of the opposition on the one side and the delegation of the Syrian government on the other side, through an intermediary, he said.
He said that the Syrian government, i.e. the Syrian army, and the Syrian allies — the Russian Aerospace Forces — would continue fighting terrorists. Unlike previously, one is no longer contradicting the other," Bashar Jaafari added.
