Russian Diplomat: U.S. Should Hand Over Its Positions In Syria To Damascus Government

US forces are in the outskirts of the Syrian town of Manbij

The US-held areas in northeastern Syria should be transferred to the Damascus government, Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told reporters on January 11.

Zakharova added that such move would “neutralize” the security threats to Syria’s neighbors, in a clear hint to Turkey that is planning to attack Kurdish forces controlling the northeastern part of the war-torn country.

“In this regard, establishing dialogue between the Kurds and Damascus takes on particular significance. After all, the Kurds are an integral part of Syrian society,” the Reuters news agency quoted Zakharova as saying.

These remarks came only hours after the U.S. announced the beginning of what its coalition against ISIS called it a “deliberate withdrawal” from Syria. The first group of U.S. service members has already left the country, according to local sources.

U.S. allies in northeastern Syria are indeed negotiating with the Damascus government to reach an agreement that would fill the gap left behind by the withdrawal of U.S. forces and deter Turkey. However, Washington is clearly trying to undermine these efforts by engaging in direct talks with Ankara, which is hoping to invade northeastern Syria once American troops leave.

    Russia and Syria should make it clear to the invading Turks and their terrorists mercenaries that it’s high time they butt out of Syria or face the consequences !

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      how about the zionist puppets ?

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        Who is the zionist puppets ?

        And while we are at it, how about Hezbollah ?

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          we speaking of the kurds here so it is obvious whom I am referring to. What about Hez enlighten me.

          • You can call me Al

            You are a terse so and so. Funny to watch their replies though.

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            So you think the Kurds are the zionists puppets !

            Tell me then, what were the Greeks in 1821 when they revolted against the Ottomans?
            Were the Greeks an English French and Russian puppet ?

            Cause they got loads of weapons and loans from them back in the 1820s you know…

            Just cause it happens that Isramerica has an interest in seing an independent Kurdistan doesnt mean that its not a just cause for the Kurds to have that independent state.

            And about Hezbollah, they are the ones that have no business being in Syria, they are an Iranian proxy which gives excuses to Israely bombings in Syrian territory and unnecessary killings…

            But I didnt see you talk about them…for some reason…

          • Tommy Jensen

            Hezbollah is a freedom and peace organisation who fights for real freedom.

            The reason why you and Israel wants to talk about them all the time, is that your butt is still hurt since 2006.

            idiot I dont know what planet you living on, but it is a common knowledge who supported the kurds and organized them in iraq since the gulf war as well what flags they been waving in their gatherings when they believed that they will steal land from syria and iraq with the help of their masters and declare their own puppet state.

            Trying to use the revolution of the greeks against the ottoman empire and make a parallel with the kurds make you so much more moron than already shown your self to be. kurds have absolute no right to syrian land or iraq land for that matter.

          • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

            First of all there is indeed an idiot here but that aint me kido.

            You lame effort to downgrade and disparage the heroic Kurdish freedom fighters is as pathetic as the rest of your comments here.

            In fact you hate the Kurds so much you effectively play into Erdogan’s propaganda and prosecution of the Kurds in and out of Turkey.

            Does that make you a traitor of Greece…my fellow Greek…? I think it does !

            And you know what happens to traitors eventually !
