ARK News: The UN Special Envoy to Syria, Geir Pederson, expected several days ago to agree on the formation of the Constitutional Commission for Syria before the end of next summer.

"What I want now is to find an international group that comes together and is committed to moving forward with the Geneva process," he told reporters after the UN Security Council session on Syria.

He added that he "informed members of the Council that he is currently working on five main themes: Deepening the dialogue between the Syrian regime and the opposition, expanding communication with all sectors of Syrian society, and examining the file of detainees, and those who are forcibly disappeared."

He pointed out that "the fourth theme concerns the joint forum that seeks to establish, while the fifth theme deals with the formation of the Constitutional Committee."
