"There has been no draft constitution for Syria presented yet. Everything that’s circulating in the press on this topic is untrue," Assad’s Administration said.
The administration said that any project on Syria’s new constitution would be drawn up by the Syrians themselves and not by outsiders.
"There won’t be any project on the new constitution for the Syrian Arab Republic presented from abroad. Only the Syrians can come to agreement on it. After that, the project will be put into a referendum," the president’s administration said in a statement.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups.
United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254, adopted in December 2015, established an 18-month road map for government transition. The process aims to advance the resolution of the five-year conflict in the war-torn country.
