Geneva talks on new Syrian constitution end without progress

first_imgGENEVA (AP) — The U.N. special envoy for Syria has expressed disappointment after five days of meetings in Geneva between delegations from the Syrian government, opposition and civil society groups aimed at revising the constitution of the war-torn country ended without progress. Geir Pedersen hinted that the Syrian government delegation was to blame for the lack of headway because it rejected a proposal he presented. Syria’s nearly 10-year conflict has killed more than half a million people and displaced half the country’s pre-war population of 23 million, including more than 5 million refugees who now live mostly in neighboring countries.last_img
