UNITED NATIONS - The UN mediator of the deadlocked Syria peace process plans to suggest ways of starting electoral and constitutional reforms that the warring sides can agree on, he told the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

"I believe the time has come for UN to provide some specific elaborations ... and therefore stimulate a wider conversation," Staffan de Mistura said. "The UN has provided electoral assistance to a majority of UN member states ... so we do have experience."
