The foreign ministers of Turkey, Russia and Iranian regime will meet in Geneva on Tuesday (Dec. 18) as part of efforts to find a political solution to the war in Syria, diplomatic sources said Monday, AA reported. 

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu will meet his Russian and Iranian counterparts at the UN office and they are expected to announce the committee which will form Syria’s new constitution, said the sources, who refused to be named due to restriction on talking to the media.

UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura will chair the meeting.

During the Syrian peace conference in late January in the Russian city of Sochi, the formation of a committee to develop recommendations to amend the Syrian constitution was agreed upon.

On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Russia, Turkey and Iran will present a list of candidates for the Syrian Constitutional Committee to the UN.
