Guterres Welcomes Outcome of Sochi Talks: Will Contribute Positively To Geneva Talks
Local Editor

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Friday welcomed the outcome of the intra-Syria talks in Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, saying Russia kept its word that the Sochi talks would be a contribution to the UN-led Geneva process.

Guterres further stressed that the outcome of the Syrian National Dialogue Congress held recently in the Russian city of Sochi will contribute positively to the Geneva talks.

The UN Chief told a press conference that the final statement of the Sochi Congress reflected the consensus among all Syrians on building their future, which is in line with the Geneva statement, pointing out that the Congress underlined the procedural steps that will lead to the full implementation of UN Security Council Resolution no. 2254.

The UN's presence in Sochi was based on a common understanding between the United Nations and Russia on the nature and outcome of the meeting and its contribution to the Geneva process.

The final declaration at the Sochi talks embraced a vision of Syria for all Syrians -- as reflected by the 12 living intra-Syrian principles put forward by his special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura late last year, said Guterres.

The two-day Sochi talks ended Tuesday. The talks affirmed that a Constitutional Committee should be formed under UN auspices in accordance with Security Council Resolution 2254, which provides for a roadmap of political settlement of the Syria crisis that has entered into the eighth year.

The talks also made it clear that a final agreement on the mandate, terms of reference, powers, rules of procedure, and selection criteria for the composition of the Constitutional Committee is to be reached in the UN-led talks in Geneva, he said.
