"We have presented the Syrian armed opposition the draft Constitution to study. We acted from respectable motives to accelerate the process and give some additional impetus", - stated A. Lavrentyev.

Head of the delegation also noted that the Russian side does not interfere in the review process and the adoption of the Constitution.

"We believe only the Syrian people have the right to lead this process. It would be reasonable to establish a constitutional commission which would consist of representatives of the Syrian opposition and the Syrian government", - he stressed.
