UN talks on Syria will reconvene in Geneva in late November, UN Special Envoy Geir Pedersen said on Friday, November 8th, Reuters reported.

According to Pedersen, the UN backed panel has agreed to meet again in 14 days.

He further added that despite talks were sometimes “very painful”, they have gone much better than most people would have expected.

The talks focused on issues of sovereignty, territorial security, stability and combating terrorism.

Syria’s government's co-chairman, Ahmed Al-Kuzbari, said that discussions aimed at creating a common ground, based on Syria’s sovereignty and unity of its lands against terrorism.

He further added in press remarks that the Syria government is open to the suggestion of making a new constitution that would serve the interests of Syria and its people.
