Syria has paid in this war a huge price, but this price made it possible to thwart the plans of the West in Syria and the world. The war is far from over and the victory in the war will announce when the time is right.
The national Council for reconciliation have repeatedly proved their effectiveness, contributing to the surrender and disarmament of many green enclaves in 2016-2017 with the removal of bitter in Idlib. Assad in this respect showed itself very far-sighted politician, having built this mechanism of reconciliation with the improvement of the military situation it was very useful, as every war ends sooner or later, and with a part of fighters in one form or another will have to agree.
It was a laser-guided bomb that the Russians supplied to Syria. We had the intelligence of a meeting and we planned for it, we planned for it days in advance. It was coordinated very carefully. Everybody: us, the UK, the NSA, the CIA—everybody knew there was going to be a meeting there. In fact Russia even contacted our intelligence people, our CIA through a liaison I guess (I don’t know how), that there was going to be a secret meeting and if we had an asset there, if there was somebody we owned at that meeting, get him out of there because it’s going to be hit.
During his trip around the country, after visiting Latakia and Hama, Assad dropped into the airbase Khmeimim, where he had a meeting with the head of the General staff Gerasimov, visited the Russian military equipment and sat in the cockpit of su-35.
“Despite the fact that the West and its regional collaborators continue to assist the gangs, the worst is over”— quoted by RIA Novosti words of Assad. The Syrian leader gave an interview to Indian news channel WION. He noted that the terrorists are retreating, controlled their territory is reduced. Syria’s President has blamed for bloodshed in the country and support of terrorism in the Western countries, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.”However, they would not dare to use it without approval from the United States,” – said Assad said
The results of the research in January of 2017 was submitted to the OPCW by the national authority Syria responsible for the implementation of the Convention on the prohibition of chemical weapons.
We have carefully analysed the available materials in mass media with accusations of Syrian government use of chemical weapons in the village of Khan shaykhun, Idlib province.
Their authenticity is questionable, and not only to us. Many reputable experts and organizations tend to agree about the fabricated nature of the video.
The Turkish president has urged Russia to stop backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, just more than a day after Turkey’s American allies launched scores of missiles in what they have called a retaliatory strike after a suspected chemical weapon attack in Syria’s Idlib province killed dozens.
“We hope that Russia gets involved as well — that at least they stop defending Assad,” Anadolu Agency quoted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying.
The story with chemical attack develops quite traditional and expected. After stuffing, the militants and the West rushed to accuse “bloody Assad regime” and called the UN security Council, launched a campaign in the press, and trump even said that he changed his attitude to Assad, simultaneously kicking Obama for a prior policy and recommending Russia to change its attitude toward Assad. Russia of course denies everything, in the UN security Council prospects for any anti-Syrian resolution in the objective investigation as nobody is interested, so that the subject “chemical weapons” will be traditionally another element of the information war.
2012. Assad must go!
2017.Something went wrong!
The organization published a post on its site, as well as a more detailed, 43 page document. On page 17 of this document, Amnesty International explains that they came up with these figures by extrapolating data, using back-of-the-envelope calculations.
A US congresswoman who made a recent secret trip to war-torn Syria said on Wednesday that she met with President Bashar al-Assad as part of her effort to end the almost six-year-long conflict.
House Democrat Tulsi Gabbard this month travelled to Damascus and the decimated city of Aleppo on a fact-finding mission, where she met with refugees, Syrian opposition leaders and relatives of fighters on both sides of the divide, in addition to Assad.
Beirut: Four documents were signed in Ankara last week by Russian and Turkish officers, facilitating a Syrian ceasefire deal that went into effect on December 30.
The documents are the product of four weeks of intensive secret talks held under auspices of the Turkish government, outlining a political roadmap for the Syrian crisis, tailor-made to fit the liking of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Turkey will soon meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to join forces against jihadists in Syria, the leader of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has claimed, describing the government’s five years of fruitless attempts to topple al-Assad as the worst defeat in the country’s foreign policy history.
After yesterday’s statements by Erdogan about the fact that he came to Syria “to overthrow the tyranny of Assad” and light bewilderment in Moscow in the style of “Recep, what are you?”, he came to his senses and backed out.
“There is nothing personal, I’m just a headline,” President Bashar Al-Assad said when questioned about how he feels being called a war criminal in the western media. “The bad president, the bad guy is killing the good guys. It is black and white like George Bush’s narrative. The real reason for wanting to topple this government is because it does not fit the criteria of the West and the United States.”
In an interview given to Denmark’s TV 2 channel, President al-Assad said that “moderate opposition” is a myth, and that reaching a political solution requires fighting terrorism, asserting that it’s not acceptable that terrorists will take control of any part of Syria.
In response to this increased confidence in the Assad forces, the US hinted that if Assad and his allies will try to resolve the matter by military means, the United States will act to partition Syria in the interests of the groups that it supports. This applies both to the part of the “green” groups that have external channels of supply, and the Syrian Kurds, on which the US has obviously bet. Hence the message to Russia that the United States should put pressure on Assad and force him to abandon his ambitious plans and in General to force him to leave if the United States can not.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will make his first foreign trip after the unsuccessful military coup to St. Petersburg to meet his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, on August 9. In the aftermath of the July 15 coup attempt, thousands of Turkish soldiers, police officers, judges, prosecutors, journalists, and academicians have been either arrested or suspended, while relations with Europe and the United States have deteriorated. Turning to Russia seems like the only option open for Erdoğan.
Doğu Perinçek, President of the ultra-nationalist Vatan (Homeland) Party, said Turkey is currently having talks with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad for normalization, according to the Karar daily.
