The two main outcomes can serve as a report on the Congress of National Dialogue in Syria, which ended its work in Sochi. First, the delegates managed to create a constitutional commission. Under the auspices of the UN, it will reform the Syrian Constitution.

The second important document is the statement of the forum participants who unanimously supported the preservation of the territorial integrity of Syria, sovereignty and respect for the rights of all ethnic and religious groups.

Compromises reached in Sochi will be the first real steps towards inter-Syrian reconciliation. The dialogue will now continue on other venues, in particular, in the Geneva format.

Recall that the Syrian opposition – the part, which boycotted the Congress of National Dialogue in Sochi – made a statement (according to the source) that it will accept the results of the forum for implementation, if approved by the UN.
