In the draft resolution, after paragraph 12, insert the following paragraph:

"The Assembly calls on the governments of all member States to facilitate the launch of an inclusive and Syrian-led process that will lead to a genuine political transition on the basis of the Geneva Communiqué that meets the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people for a free and democratic Syria, where every person will be treated equally regardless of their religion, belief or ethnicity."
