Russia, US to Discuss Steps for Syria Crisis Settlement in Switzerland on Saturday

The United States, Russia and regional powers will meet to discuss steps for Syria crisis settlement on October 15 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

“According to the agreement between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry, the meeting of foreign ministers of Russia, the US and key regional states to consider possible additional steps to create conditions for the settlement of the Syrian crisis will take place in Lausanne on October 15,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Earlier in October, Washington said it was suspending bilateral cooperation with Moscow over the crisis after the Syrian ceasefire brokered by the US and Russia had collapsed.

The US blamed Moscow and Damascus for this. In turn, Russia said the US had failed to separate the so-called “moderate opposition” the terrorists.

    I don’t know how Putin and Lavrov manage to keep this up. Dealing with
    the west is like trying to communicate with someone in the advanced
    stages of dementia. There is simply no means of communication.
    Talking to vegetables make more sense and has a higher probability of
    success.

    Russia I thought you where done discussing with these villains? haven’t you learned anything by now, that they will not honor any agreement with you, you are their adversary, and the settlement of the Syrian war means their own defeat. Do you really think they are willing to help you in that process?

  • I would like to propose my TAKE RAQQA BATTLEPLAN (see attached image) for consideration at the Lausanne meeting.

    • Key features of my battle-plan are

      1. US-led Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve (alternatively NATO Rapid Reaction Deployment Corps – Turkey) offer supranational command and control services and air power superiority and close air support to Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield – Turkish Armed Forces supported by Free Syrian Army, with a view to

      • take al-Bab expelling ISIS
      • eliminate any remaining ISIS pockets in northern Syria west of the Euphrates
      • respecting existing Syrian Democratic Forces control of Manbij
      • establish safe zones for civilians
      • safe zones to exclude non-FSA and non-SDF terrorist militias
      • advance taking ISIS supply routes west and south of the Euphrates
      • cross the Euphrates south of Raqqa
      • take Raqqa

      2. US-led Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve offer supranational command and control services and air power superiority and close air support to Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces supported by the Kurdish YPG and YPJ, advance towards Raqqa from Rojava east of the Euphrates, mopping up ISIS forces which attempt to flee north to escape Turkish assault described in point 1.

      3. Fighting elsewhere in Syria wherever it is possible for the parties to the Syrian civil war to agree should cease, at least temporarily, for negotiations to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid and / or relocation of civilians to safe zones.

    Lmao the us “we’re not discussing Syria with Russia anymore” stance didn’t last very long. I guess they thought it would get them what they were throwing a tantrum about but didn’t. Russia has got the most patient and professional diplomats I have ever known for them to still be wiling to sit down with these adult size children with thug like mentality that the us calls diplomats. The us isn’t used to not being able to bully other countries into giving in to their demands and they don’t seem to be handling it gracefully.
