UN Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura has invited Iran, Russia and Turkey to talks on Syria’s Constitutional Committee, to be held in Geneva on Sept. 11-12, a UN spokeswoman said on Friday (August 24), Reuters reported.

The talks on forming a committee to draw up a new constitution are expected to be followed by parallel UN talks involving countries including the United States, but she had no date for those.

Representatives of the three nations will meet de Mistura over two days at the UN’s European headquarters in Geneva, spokeswoman Alessandra Vellucci told reporters.

De Mistura has said he wants to have the constitutional committee in place before world leaders meet at the General Assembly in New York in late September.
