    GENEVA (Reuters) - Russia, Iran and Turkey are close to agreement on composition of a Syrian constitutional committee that could pave the way for drafting a new charter followed by elections, diplomats said on Monday.

    The foreign ministers of the three nations, who support opposing sides in Syria’s nearly eight-year war, meet for talks on Tuesday in Geneva, where they are expected to seek the United Nations’ blessing for their joint proposal, they added.

    Staffan de Mistura, U.N. Special Envoy for Syria who steps down at year-end, has tried since January to clinch agreement on the identity of 150 members of a new constitutional committee to revitalize a dormant peace process.

    President Bashar al-Assad’s government and the opposition fighting to topple him have each submitted a list of 50 names, but the three nations have haggled over the final 50 members from civil society and “independent” members, diplomats say.

    “The three countries are coming with a proposal for the third list, which has been the heart of the problem,” said one diplomat.

    Turkey and other nations would consider working with Assad if he won a democratic election, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Sunday, two days before coming to Geneva to meet Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and Iran’s Javad Zarif.

    We are helping. Helping to pave the way to Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38, that is.

    I agree.....besides, let’s clear our people out of that country so Israel can bomb them without having to worry about killing Americans.

    Methinks Bible reading inhabitants of Damascus (if any left) better leave very quickly.
