Credible, legitimate constitutional committee for Syria "may not" be possible - UN Special Envoy

Google Rank
Briefing the Security Council on Monday, Staffan de Mistura, the UN Special Envoy for Syria, said that credibility, balance, inclusion and international legitimacy remain the “litmus test” for the committee.
If that test were to fail, “we may have to conclude that we may not be possible to form a constitutional committee, credible and inclusive at this stage,” he said.
“In such an unfortunate case […] I will certainly be ready to explain to the [Security] Council, why,” added Mr. de Mistura.
The constitutional committee was part of a road map, endorsed by the Security Council in its resolution 2254 (2015), for a peace process in war-torn Syria.
