Syrian ambassador struggles to give date for Syrian peoples' congress

MOSCOW. Oct 25 (Interfax) - Setting a possible date for a congress of the peoples of Syria right now would be difficult, as the topic is still under discussion, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad told Interfax.

"This is a complicated issue. This topic is being discussed in Syria, the result is still unknown," Haddad said on Wednesday.

He added that there is no understanding as to whether the congress will be held before the New Year or in 2018.
