ElDorar AlShamia:

The HNC delegation to Geneva concluded a memorandum containing dozens of questions to be submitted to UN envoy Satffan de Mistura, most of which focus on the paper proposed by the latter.

The questions focused on a number of points, particularly with regard to the organization of the consultative mechanism for a national dialogue conference, and the formation of a team of activists from civil society and technocrats, to pave the way for the preparation of a new constitution, media sources reported.

The Spokesman of HNC ,Riad Na'san Agha, in a press statement expressed concern that de Mistura was influenced by the Russian proposal.

Sources in the delegation considered that the mechanism proposed by the envoy included "political mines" and needed much more clarification. The mechanism proposes finding a solution to Syria by drafting a new constitution for the country.

Agha added that the negotiating delegation will submit before the end of the sixth round of negotiations some documents to the international envoy, the first relating to the status of detainees in the jails of the regime, the second relates to the opposition's rejection of any role of Iran in Syria.

The document submitted by de Mistura suggested there would not be any constitutional or legal vacuum at any stage of transition. The mechanism should be headed by the Office of the International Envoy, assisted by experts, as well as legal experts nominated by the Government and the opposition participating in the Geneva talks.
