Syrian opposition confirms Russia’s proposal on constitutional reform

However, Russian proposals do not cover all aspects of the Syrian problem, some issues need further discussion, Qadri Jamil of Syria’s People’s Front for Change and Liberation notes.

Qadri Jamil of Syria’s People’s Front for Change and Liberation confirmed on Thursday that Russia has made a proposal on the constitutional process in Syria that could take up to 1.5 years.

"Talking about some new Russian initiative is not quite correct. There are certain thoughts, for example, a proposal on the 1.5-year constitutional reform," Jamil said.

"These proposals do not cover all aspects of the Syrian problem. Some issues need further discussion," he added.

Russian Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov earlier dismissed western media reports that Moscow had drafted some document on the Syrian conflict resolution.

"This is not a document, we just have different ideas," he said. "This is not a whole plan or initiative."
