Syrian Govt. Calls for National Dialogue

"The mechanism put in place recently for the national dialogue will invite the authorities, intellectuals and political personalities to a July 10 meeting to debate in particular amendments to the Constitution, especially Clause 8," Syria's official SANA news agency reported on Monday.

Clause 8 of Syria's Constitution states that the governing Baath party is the sole leader of both the state and society.

"Draft laws on a multi-party system, the press and those governing parliamentary and local elections will also be on the agenda," SANA said.

The official Syrian news agency also said the mechanism for national dialogue, presided over by Vice President Faruq al-Sharaa, aims to “lay down the principles and bases” of a dialogue between all parties in Syria.

On Saturday, tens of thousands of pro-government protesters took to the streets across Syria, including the northwestern province of Idlib, in a show of support for President Bashar al-Assad.

The crowds also demanded an end to foreign interference in their country's internal affairs.

But the opposition demonstrations have not abated despite assurances from President Assad, who has called for a national dialogue and pledged to implement reforms.

Hundreds of people have been killed in Syria since the unrest began in mid-March.

The opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings. But the Syrian government blames armed gangs for the violence, saying that the unrest is being orchestrated from outside the country.
