The session was moderated by Dr. Abeer Hassaf, and the member of the Constitutional Committee, Dr. Dorsen Oskan, via the Zoom program.

Member of the Armenian Assembly, Imad Abdullah, said during the session that terrorist organizations such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda appeared under the pretext of defending a particular religion, but they were managed by the great powers to achieve the interests of those countries, and to tarnish the reputation of religion, which led to the sowing of strife between religions in the region.

In turn, a member of the Yazidi House Council in the Jazira region, Suleiman Hamo, stressed that the practice of religions' beliefs does not harm the form of civil states, pointing out that Germany is a country with a civil system in which the Yazidis practice all their religious rituals freely without any harm to the state.

Hamo added that the personal status laws in Syria were unfair against the Yazidis, as they were registered as Muslims and changed their religion in their identity.

In turn, the coordinator of activities at Pel Organization, Hajar Amin, explained that the Syrian identity has been absent from society for a period of time, but what brought Syrians together is the link between the people of society of different nationalities and religions, noting that the dialogue session held by Ezdina is the best evidence of the strong bond between them.

The member of the Constitutional Committee, Dr. Dorsen Oskan, spoke via the Zoom Program about the nine Geneva meetings, indicating the lack of seriousness of all parties in order to reach a solution to the Syrian crisis.

Dr. Oskan added that constitutional issues were addressed in only one Geneva conference, while the rest of the sessions were wasting time and procrastination from the participating parties.

For her part, the session facilitator, Dr. Abeer Hassaf, spoke about the establishment and composition of the Constitutional Committee and the drawbacks of representing the Committee, in addition to talking about the main reasons for the failure of the Constitutional Committee in its work so far.
