Iran, UN Confer on Latest Developments in SyriaDuring the conversation on Wednesday, Khaji and Pedersen reviewed the latest developments in Syria, including the Syrian Constitutional Committee.

Pedersen put forward a report on the outcomes of the fourth round of meetings of the Syrian Constitutional Committee in Geneva last week.

Khaji briefed Pederson about the latest developments in Syria, the Constitutional Committee, and Idlib issues.

The two sides also voiced support for the continuation of future meetings of the Syrian Constitutional Committee.

The Constitutional Committee's fifth round of the Syria talks is set to be held at the United Nations' Geneva office on Jan. 25-29, 2021.

The fourth session of Syria's Constitutional Committee was held on November 27 in Geneva to hammer out the roots of the basic laws for a peaceful Syria.

In his November meeting with Pedersen in Tehran, Khaji had said that the western states are using the humanitarian issues in Syria to attain their political goals.

During the meeting, the two sides discussed the latest developments in Syria, including the constitution committee, conference on refugees, Idlib and Eastern Euphrates.

Khaji lauded Pedersen for his efforts to find a political solution to the crisis in Syria and continued meetings of the constitution committee, blasting certain countries, specially the western states, for non-participation in the conference on refugees.

“The western states which claim to be supporting the humanitarian issues, have taken hostage the humanitarian issues in Syria to attain their political goals and have attempted to prevent holding the conference (on refugees),” he added.

Pedersen, for his part, elaborated on the latest coordination with members of Syria’s constitution committee about their next meeting, appreciating Iran’s efforts to support the political process to resolve the crisis in Syria.
