Iranian Diplomat, Syrian Dissidents Meet in Sochi

Hoping to capitalise on his military successes in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin organised a conference in Russia's Black Sea resort city Sochi on Tuesday that was aimed at showcasing Moscow's influence over Middle East affairs.

A statement released after the talks laid out 12 principles.

The Constitution Commission will be comprised of 150 delegates and the details will soon be forwarded to UN.

But the main opposition group, which boycotted the conference, is likely to oppose the outcome as the process of choosing the members favors the Syrian government.

A Syrian peace conference in Russian Federation got off to a rocky start on Tuesday after some delegates opposed to President Bashar al-Assad refused to leave the airport on arrival, saying they were offended by the presence of the Syrian state's flag and emblem. "We informed them (the Russians) of our conditions that they should remove all the logos and flags representing the Syrian government".

The final statement endorsed the country's territorial integrity and called for self-determination through "democratic" elections.

During the talks, Jaberi Ansari and the Syrian dissidents exchanged views on the subjects discussed during the Syrian National Dialogue Congress and explored ways to restore peace and security to the war-stricken Syria.

The lawmakers informed by the social media that the Congress was held under the slogan "Peace to the People of Syria".

"Syrians still have a long and hard way to go, because most complicated tasks are yet to be solved". Many fear that Turkish offensive could further complicate the political process in Syria by opening a new war front.
