Turkmens are best represented in terms of quality on the newly launched Syrian Constitutional Committee, said a Turkmen member.

The opening meeting of the 150-member committee on Wednesday was held in a “positive atmosphere,” Abdul Majeed Barakat told Anadolu Agency following the start of the committee in Geneva.

“Turkmens are best represented on the committee qualitatively. We will voice the demands of Turkmen society in a national framework,” he said.

Barakat, who is the youngest member of the committee, said they are not representing just one society but the whole Syria.
