U.N., Syria close to agreeing constitutional committee: envoy

The United Nations is close to agreement with Syria on setting up a constitutional committee, a long-awaited step in a stalled peace process, the U.N. Syria envoy said Wednesday.

"I believe we have made a very solid progress and we are very close to have agreement on establishing the constitutional committee," Geir Pedersen told reporters after meeting Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem.

A Syrian Foreign Ministry statement said significant progress had been made in the talks, but also reiterated its previous stance that the constitutional committee should be a purely Syrian affair.
