Erdogan Wanted To Meet Syria’s Assad At SCO Summit – Report

File image.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was willing to meet President Bashar al-Assad had the Syrian leader attended the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SOC) summit in Uzbekistan, Turkey’s pro-government Hurriyet newspaper reported on September 16.

According to Hurriyet columnist Abdulkadir Selvi, Erdogan made the comments about Assad at a meeting of his ruling Justice and Development Party on September 12.

“I wish Assad had come to Uzbekistan, I would have spoken to him. But he can’t come there,” Erdogan was quoted by Selvi as saying at the party meeting.

“He went to war with rebels to maintain his own power. He chose to protect his own power. He thought to protect the areas he controlled. But he couldn’t protect large areas,” Erdogan reportedly added.

Last month, Iran’s Tasnim News Agency reported that Erdogan could meet Assad on the sideline of the SOC summit in Uzbekistan. Nevertheless, the Syrian leader ended up not attending the summit.

Hurriyet report came after four sources told Reuters that Turkey’s intelligence chief held multiple meetings with his Syrian counterpart in Damascus in recent weeks. During the meetings, a possible summit between the two countries’ foreign minister was discussed.

The attempt to restore relations between Ankara and Damascus is reportedly being led by Russia, who is looking to solidify its position in Syria.

Turkey’s political and military support has been critical for the survival of Syrian rebels, who lost most of their territory to government forces after the start of Russian operations in Syria.

A rapprochement between Ankara and Damascus could reshape the war in Syria. The biggest loser would be US-backed Kurdish forces, who still occupy vast parts of the country’s northern and northeastern region. They could end up facing a Russian-backed Turkish-Syria alliance.

Restoring ties with Damascus could also allow Ankara to organize a safe return for millions of Syrian refugees. This is of special importance for Erdogan, as his party is looking to resolve the Syrian refugee issue before the upcoming Turkish elections.

We have nice Democracy in USA. A President to entertain the masses while the real shadow government is unelected and run from Langley Virginia CIA headquarters.

Now and then we get distractors like Trump to distract the masses. We have fake insurrections to help the American masses vent their frustrations

We are the best type of democracy possible. A secret government with faceless individuals who murder other Americans who are unfortunate enough to stumble upon our schemes.

Since Covid the intelligence agencies have distributed a colorless tasteless odorless compound to American restaurant managers and fast food places. Just a phone call later any person’s food can be poisoned. The poison acts exactly two hours later. The delay is intentional so the target does not associate the abdominal pain, vomiting etc with the food eaten two hours ago.

Beautiful system Russia can copy. People like Navalny can get American styled Popeye chicken with a few drops of the CIA type compound!!! Lol. Just kidding.

The poison is no joke. Investigate if you have the guts !!!!!

SAMARKAND, Uzbekistan, Sept 16 – President Vladimir Putin on Friday brushed off a lightning Ukrainian counter-offensive with a smile but warned that Russia would respond more forcefully if its troops were put under further pressure.

Speaking after a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in the Uzbek city of Samarkand, Putin cast the invasion as a necessary step to prevent what he said was a Western plot to break Russia apart.

Moscow, he said, was in no hurry in Ukraine. And its goals remained unchanged.

Sadly you are correct, John, and the UK is not far behind US-Rael.

We do though, have a recently deceased monarc for the great unwashed to cry about.

Syria will want those who switched allegiance at the beginning of the war to be brought to justice, or at the very least Syria must be satisfied that the threat that they represent is no more.

Everyone knows it's the Jews.

Erdogan is a piece of shit that allowed ISIS fighters to transfer through Turkey to fight in Syria against the Syrian army, as well as provide medical care for ISIS fighters at taxpayer expense. And now he wants the refugees to go home, after he exacerbated the conflict in Syria. He’s no better than most of Israel dick suckers in the middle east.

After I finished this article on the statement(s) Putin made – https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/putin-tells-allies-no-hurry-ukraine-warns-more-serious-action-come I was in awe at how remarkably composed and at ease with this enforced NATO war on Russia’s shoals he appears to be….

But also equally in awe at how cavalier Putin is to the deaths of his own servicemen or that of the DPR when he said this – “Putin said Russia was “not fighting with a full army” but only contract soldiers, and said the main goal of the campaign remained “the liberation of the entire territory of Donbas”…. “Contract soldiers” as if they are simply pawns on a chessboard to be eliminated that don’t matter.. Just like the DPR that gave their lives to defend their land without Russia’s support for 8 bloody years before this year!???… The question is “greater good” of what?… “For now, even at a moment new allegations are being widely reported of Ukrainian “mass graves” being left in Izium after Russian forces retreated from there, Putin looks comfortable at the SCO summit while surrounded by “friends”…”

It’s like a natural extension of the Syrian conflict where Putin makes friends with I$rael and Turkey keeping surface to air systems absent this host, so that I$rahell can kill a steady flow of it’s Syrian military to satisfy the wanton urges of his pal$ in the Tribe that help him stack these https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/russian-prime-minister-vladimir-putin-holds-a-gold-bar-news-photo/108290217?language=fr … And for Turkey pacification through cheap Russian oil/gas andstolen Syrian oil to with those new SA-400s….

More evidence that we really are completely manipulated and controlled by banks with “anointed” patrician overlords that the 99% serve at the pleasure of regardless of the stakes for them?!…

Enough of this depressing talk of war… Now… “When Erdogan, Aliyev, Putin and Lukashenko go to a bar pic.twitter.com/Ez4Nhux2AN”… to talk about Modi’s new boat or Putin’s new villa !…
