New United Nations Special Envoy Arrives in Syria for 1st Visit

DAMASCUS – The United Nations’ newly appointed special envoy to Syria, Geir Pedersen, made on Tuesday his first visit to the war-torn country since he assumed the post.

Pedersen, who was appointed after his predecessor Staffan de Mistura stepped down in November, became the fourth envoy to take on the role since the conflict erupted in 2011.

“UN Special Envoy Geir Pedersen arrived in Damascus and looking forward to productive meetings here,” a tweet on the special envoy’s account said, without giving further details.

The Norwegian diplomat was expected to discuss with Syrian leaders the formation of a UN-backed constitutional committee, an issue that was left pending by De Mistura who resigned after four years of unsuccessful efforts to resolve the Syrian conflict.

The committee to rewrite the Syrian constitution should have 150 members; a third of whom to be appointed by the regime, a third by the opposition and a third by the UN.
