UN Security Council to discuss Syrian post-war constitution Friday

United Nations Security Council (UNSC)

The UN Security Council is expected to meet Friday to discuss a post-war constitution for war-torn Syria.


The Security Council meeting comes following UN envoy Staffan de Mistura's Wednesday trip to Damascus, where he sought the approval of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government for a UN-backed constitutional committee.


Assad's regime, however, has been adamant that it lead the process on forming any new constitution, dismissing the idea of any "foreign influence" entering into the process.
