UN Special Envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen announced Thursday that the meetings of the Constitutional Committee will resume this afternoon following confirmation from health authorities that it is possible.
In a statement, Pedersen said that after additional testing and further medical advice from experts regarding the four positive coronavirus tests, the office of the Special Envoy was formally informed by the concerned health authorities that the third round of the committee can resume its meetings, while ensuring social distancing and taking all relevant precautions.
He added that after consulting all the participating presidents and members of the committee, the meetings will be resumed at 2:00 p.m. at the UN Palace in Geneva.
Last Monday, the UN announced the suspension of meetings of the mini-committee of the expanded body of the Constitutional Committee in Geneva following the discovery of coronavirus infections among a number of the participant delegations.
