De Mistura, Pompeo review progress on Syria's constitutional committee


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed with UN Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura the progress on convening a constitutional committee in Syria with the aim of ending the country's bloody conflict.


Pompeo thanked de Mistura, who is set to step down from his current position as the UN's envoy on Syria in November, for his efforts in de-escalating the conflict in the war-torn country, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a press release.

In January, during the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi, it was agreed to create Syria's constitutional commission, composed of Syrian government representatives and opposition members, to rewrite the main law of the country.
