Invited To Syria Peace Congress In Russia: Moscow

Closing out the constitution-focused special 9th round of intra-Syrian talks last night in Vienna, Mr.de Mistura Geneva Communiqué reporters that "the ultimate goal of a constitutional process is to enable the Syrian people to freely and independently determine their own future in UN-supervised parliamentary and presidential elections, meeting the requirements laid out in resolution 2254".

Guterres was briefed by De Mistura on the outcome of the Vienna talks, and has taken into account a statement from Russian Federation that the result of the Sochi conference "would be brought to Geneva as a contribution to the intra-Syrian talks process under the auspices of the United Nations", the spokesman said in a statement.

The five states' proposals recommend that de Misutra focus the parties on reforming the constitution, on holding United Nations -supervised elections for Syrians inside and outside the country, and creating a "safe and neutral environment" for the vote.

Ja'afari went on to lambast Saudi Arabia for co-authoring such a proposal, describing Riyadh sarcastically as anything but a "beacon of freedom in the east".

After two days of talks in Vienna with the United Nations special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, the Syrian opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC) said it would not be attending peace talks being held in Russian Federation next week.

The Sochi peace congress was announced after their last meeting in December.

The opposition is deliberating whether to participate in the national dialogue conference in Sochi, Russia.

The Vienna talks come ahead of a separate peace conference next Tuesday in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, backed by Russia, Iran and Turkey.

During the meeting attended by the Russian president's special envoy for Syria Alexander Lavrentiev as well as Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Sedat Önal, the officials of Iran, Russia and Turkey also known as guarantor states made the final arrangements for holding Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi. "It is up to him to decide what will be the response to the invitation to attend Sochi", de Mistura said.

Eight rounds of Syria peace talks, which took place in the Swiss city of Geneva, failed to achieve tangible results, mainly due to the opposition's insistence that the Syrian government cede power.

That has heightened tensions with Turkey's Western allies - particularly the United States, which has backed the Kurdish YPG in their fight against the Daesh - with Germany calling for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to hold talks over Ankara's operation "Olive Branch".
