The Syrian Government and Opposition on Monday began discussing the formation of a transitional government, in what moderators predict will be the most difficult stage of the first talks to end the three—year conflict.

The two sides are expected to negotiate a legal framework for the authority, to be comprised of members of President Bashar al—Assad’s Government, the Opposition and independent figures.

“This commission will oversee the formation of a transitional government, greater separation between legislative, executive and judicial authorities and examine needed constitutional reforms to bring a new democratic age to Syria,” Burhan Ghalioun, a delegate from the opposition told dpa in Geneva.

“What we will be discussing today will set the path for the future of Syria,”  he added.
