Serhat TUNAR -TDO- The second round of Syrian Constitutional Committee talks in Geneva failed to reach a compromise.
Geir Pedersen, the United Nations Special Representative for Syria, said it was not possible to convene a board of 45 delegates after talks with the delegations and that no agreement on the agenda items had been reached.
Pedersen said they were trying to reach a compromise, but were far from that conclusion yet.
Members of the committee's 15-member constitutional writing board, consisting of opposition, regime and non-governmental organizations, were present at the United Nations Office in Geneva in the morning for the meeting on the last day of the second round.
Pedersen, the United Nations Special Representative for Syria, said the committee's opposition and regime co-chairs had made statements on their different positions during the week, adding that although the main rules of procedure said that the two co-presidents would continue to hold meetings in agreement on an agenda, this was not possible.
