Syria talks end on positive note after Covid scare

Talks on a new constitution for Syria wrapped up Saturday in Geneva without concrete progress but the UN mediator said the players had found “commonalities” and were keen to meet again.

UN envoy Geir Pedersen has voiced hope the tentative talks in Geneva between representatives of President Bashar al-Assad’s government, the opposition and civil society could eventually pave the way for a broader political process in the war-ravaged country.

But the latest round of discussions ended without even an agreement on an agenda or date for the next session.
