Turkey expects all Syria parties to fulfil responsibilities

Kurds mourn during a funeral in Afrin Syria on Monday of civilians and fighters from the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units who were killed in battles as the Turkish army press an offensive against Kurdish militia in the area

Earlier on Tuesday, the Syrian opposition decided not to participate in the Sochi summit and instead announced that Turkey could do it on its behalf, anonymous diplomatic sources said.

"In your final declaration today you've embraced 12 principles, developed in the Geneva political process, which describes a vision of Syria, that all Syrians should be able to share". "The UN-led Geneva process will agree on the proposals the special envoy will make on the mandate, terms of reference, powers, rules of procedure and selection criteria for the composition of the constitutional committee in Geneva".

Delegates at a Syrian peace conference in Sochi have called for respect for the country's territorial integrity and said the Syrian people alone should decide the shape of their government.

According to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, a decision was made during the congress to form a constitutional committee, comprising delegates elected during the congress, and also to include representatives of groups who were absent for various reasons.

"I have heard that you all agreed that the assignment comes to the United Nations to get the Constitutional Committee established".

"Care would be taken to ensure adequate representation of Syria's ethnic and religious components", the statement said.

Participants of a Russia-hosted conference for peace in Syria have agreed to set up a commission to rewrite the war-torn country's constitution.

"The Geneva talks will receive a boost after the Sochi congress and will be promoted".

The establishment of de-escalation zones was agreed to in May between Turkey, which backs groups opposed to Syria's Bashar Assad regime, and Russian Federation and Iran, who support the regime.
