In Geneva hosted a regular round of inter-Syrian negotiations, the parties achieved “some progress”, but the talks were generally “business and short”. This was announced by special envoy of the UN Secretary General on Syria Staffan de Mistura, reports the UN news Center.

He also said that during the last round was “less rhetoric” from both sides.

According to de Mistura, the participants discussed “the constitutional and legal questions” that would provide “a legitimate constitutional basis” for future political change.

“We are not planning in the process to prepare new Constitution for Syria. This should be done by the Syrians themselves. We intend to provide them with the necessary resources …”, – said the representative of the United Nations.

De Mistura noted that the negotiators also continued discussion of issues of governance, free and fair elections, and combating terrorism.

The talks were held between representatives of the regime of Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian rebels. Mediators at the talks are Russia and the United States.

The next round of talks on the Syrian settlement will take place in June.

May 19, coalition forces led by the US carried out air strikes on militants supported by Assad when they launched an attack on the Syrian rebels supported by the United States.
