BEIRUT - The Syrian government welcomes the formation of a committee that will discuss the current constitution and is expected to be formed at a congress to be convened by Russia in Sochi, Syrian state media said.



The congress marks a Russian effort to advance a political solution towards ending Syria's six-year-long war that has killed hundreds of thousands of people and forced millions to flee in the worst refugee crisis since World War Two.



UN-backed talks towards ending the conflict are due to resume in Geneva this week with the participation of the Syrian opposition to President Bashar Assad, who is militarily dominant in the conflict thanks to Russia and Iran.
