Turkey support the political process in Syria and the formation of the constitutional committee as its major stage, Turkey’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Onal said on Monday.
Axar.az reports citing TASS.
"We support the idea that the political process should be the major task and be carried out by Syrians themselves," he said at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on the situation in the Middle East. "The process’ success will largely depend on whether the international community and the United Nations would be able to create conditions for building trust between the Syrians."
He vowed that his country would continue to support the activities of United Nations Secretary Generals’ Special Envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen.
"We will continue to do our best within the Astana format to make a contribution to ensuring measures of trust," he pledged.
Pedersen said earlier in the day that Syria’s constitutional committee would gather for its first meeting in Geneva on October 30.
