GENEVA, February 2. /TASS/. United Nations Syrian Envoy, Staffan de Mistura, will invite Syrian women and civil society representatives to make a contribution to the peace talks, de Mistura’s office said in a press statement on Tuesday.

"Today, the UN Special Envoy for Syria, Mr. Staffan de Mistura, will issue invitations to Syrian women and civil society representatives, to contribute to the United Nations-facilitated talks, being held in Geneva between representatives of the Syrian government and the opposition," the statement says.

According to the statement, an independent Women’s Advisory Board has been set up at the office of the United Nations Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura. "Mr. De Mistura, heeding the call by many Syrian women to meaningfully be able to contribute to the talks and the guidance provided by Security Council Resolution 2254, has established an independent Women’s Advisory Board to the Office of the UN Special Envoy for Syria," the statement says.

"The Advisory Board will allow Syrian women to articulate their concerns and ideas and present recommendations, covering all topics discussed during the talks, to the UN Special Envoy for consideration," the document says.

The Board will be composed of 12 women representing Syrian women’s organizations who will work on the Board on a basis of regular rotations.

"Both women and civil society organisations can provide vital ideas and insight to the talks, by presenting the views and recommendations of important segments of Syrian society."
