The United Nations Special Envoy for Syria plans talks with Iran, Russia and Turkey in September to start finalizing the composition of the body intended to draft a new Syrian Constitution, a statement said on Tuesday.

Staffan de Mistura, attending two-day talks with the three powers in Russia, has received lists from the Syrian government and the opposition on proposed candidates for the Constitutional Committee, Reuters reported.

“The Special Envoy looks forward to holding formal consultations (with the three countries) ... very early in September in Geneva, in order to begin to finalize the constitutional committee,” the statement said.

Iranian Foreign Minister’s Special Assistant for Political Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari represented Iran in the two-day talks which was held in the Russian city of Sochi.

On Monday, Jaberi Ansari and de Mistura discussed the latest efforts to politically resolve the protracted war in Syria.

They exchanged views about the political process for ending the Syrian crisis, the Syrian constitutional committee and the humanitarian efforts, especially the return of refugees to the Arab country.

The session came as representatives of Iran, Russia, and Turkey on Monday kicked off two days of talks on issues relating to the war in Syria.
