Pindostan & Russia Said to Team Up to Draft New Syria Constitution
Henry Meyer, Blunderburg.com, Apr 7 2016

Russia and Pindostan are working on drafting a new constitution for Syria, according to three Western and Russian diplomats. The joint efforts are at an early stage, and Russia’s current proposals are closer to the Syrian government’s position, said one Western diplomat. The two countries are continuing to exchange ideas, a Russian diplomat said. Pindostan agreed with Russia to create a framework for a political transition and a draft constitution for Syria by August, Jackass Kerry said after talks in the Kremlin on Mar 24. But the two countries continue to disagree on the fate of Assad, even if the Obama administration has softened demands for his immediate ouster. Jackass said last month on CBS Face the Nation:

Without Assad stepping aside, there will not be peace in Syria. You can’t end the war while Assad is there.

Farah al-Atassi, a spox for the Toad-led High Negotiations Committee, said it opposes a process of defining the new constitution that’s driven by Pindostan and Russia. He said:

The Syrian constitution belongs to the Syrian people, not Pindostan or Russia. When we form the transitional governing body with full executive powers, we will appoint Syrian lawyers, judges and experts to draft a new constitution.

The road map of November proposed to establish a transitional ruling body with full executive authority in Syria of government and opposition members within six months. This would lead to internationally supervised elections under a new constitution a year later. Al Hayat reported on Apr 1 that Russia gave a proposed draft of a new Syrian constitution to Jackass during his visit to Moscow last month. Pindostan is studying the proposals, which were based on documents by legal experts close to the government, al Hayat said. When asked about the comments, Deputy State Dept spokx M Toner cited a statement by Jackass two weeks ago saying that Pindostan and Russia had “agreed on a framework schedule for a Syrian-led political transition by August, which would include a new constitution.” Asked about the new constitutional structure for Syria, Russian Foreign Ministry spox M Zakharova told reporters Wednesday:

Russia and Pindostan are ready to assist the process by proposing their ideas, but this is about helping the process. Of course, it is the Syrian people who must decide.
