UN envoy holds talks with Syria FM in Damascus

The UN envoy for Syria held "substantial" talks Sunday (April 14th) in Damascus with Foreign Minister Walid Muallem on efforts to find a political settlement to the war, AFP reported.

"We have had very detailed substantial discussions," Norwegian diplomat Geir Pedersen said. "We are now addressing all the issues so all the issues are at the table."

State media said Pedersen and Muallem discussed ongoing efforts to advance Syria's political process, including moves to form a committee tasked with drawing up a post-war constitution.

Pedersen arrived in Damascus on Saturday, in his third official visit to the country since assuming his post in January.

Since early January, he has travelled extensively to meet with the government, opposition and others.
