During the Syrian peace conference in late January in the Russian city of Sochi, the formation of a committee to develop recommendations to amend the Syrian constitution was agreed upon.

On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Russia, Turkey and Iran will present a list of candidates for the Syrian Constitutional Committee to the UN.
