Russian Foreign Minister: U.S. Rarely Separates Terrorists From Opposition In Southern Syria

File image

On July 4, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the U.S. rarely separates terrorist groups like Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and ISIS from the Syrian opposition in southern Syria. Larove made his statement following a meeting with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi, during which both sides discussed the implementation of the de-escalation agreement in southern Syria.

“We have also pointed out the need for the implementation of agreements on the southern de-escalation zone, deals which were reached by the United States, Russia and Jordan on all aspects, including the continuation of the uncompromising struggle against terrorists from Islamic State and JabhatFatah al-Sham, which control about 40 percent of the southern de-escalation zone,” Lavrov said during a press conference after the meeting, according to the Russian news outlet Sputnik.

Furthermore, Lavrov described the calls to expel Iran from Syria as “unrealistic” and stressed that all sides in the region should be involved in the upcoming settlement in the war torn country.

“It is clear that this is absolutely unrealistic and that it will not be possible to solve regional problems without the participation of its key countries, including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and many others,” Lavrov said.

The Russian foreign minister also revealed that he raised that the issue of lifting unilateral sanctions against Syria during his meeting with Safadi. Such a move will improve the economic situation in Syria, thus facilitating the return of refugees, according to Lavrov.

“Russia has also repeatedly noted the need to remove all unilateral sanctions imposed by the Western countries against the Syrian Arab Republic, sanctions that prevent from ensuring normal economic, infrastructure conditions for return of refugees,” Lavrov explained.

The results of Lavrov-Safadi talks will likely have a direct impact on the stand of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in southern Syria, which has rejected several peaceful solutions, so far. This situation may change now due to the Jordanian policy that supports the return of the SAA to the border between the two countries.

    If FSA cut their relations with ISIS and Al-Qaeda then they can come out from this swamp of terrorists. For the future generations FSA should defend their own country with SAA and Tiger forces and refused to play in the hands of US and European countries.

    • SurfshackTito

      Most of the FSA’s a lost cause Brudda, most of the troops aren’t even Syrian at all and are illegal immigrants.
      but I do agree that the syrians who are a part of them should reconcile with their Country like they’ve been doing lately.

      Most of the FSA’s more moderate factions and the more secular troops have returned to the government’s side.

    US and Europeans managing these all Israel, ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Palestine, Syria and other countries.

    US is selling out FSA and ISIS in south Syria. Israel is following the example, no S300 to Syria in exchange for Israel to recognize the 1974 border and stop helping their proxies in South Syria.
    After all, Putin is a deal maker obtaining tangible results with minimal violence. S300 proved to be a good bargaining chip in cooling down Israel and their virulent howls about starting a war in the area.

  • Sinbad2

    Well what the world calls terrorists, the US calls our boys.

  • Joe Kerr

    The U.S. is slowing coming to realise that its $20+ trillion debt will be difficult to repay. Wars are expensive, especially wars for lies.

    • #’~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4v!=^

      What indications do you have that the US is starting to realise that?

      • as

        Exactly. All 20+ trillion would be shouldered by their citizens NOT the one that can simply offshore their Trillions wealth.

        Russian have taste how’s it works. Repaying their debt.

        • #’~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4v!=^

          You have not answered my question: “What indications do you have that the US is starting to realise that?”

          • as

            The answer is none.

          • #’~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4v!=^

            So your comment that “The U.S. is slowing coming to realise that its $20+ trillion debt will be difficult to repay.” is just an empty comment. You must get a kick out of seeing your words in print, even if they are meaningless.

          • as

            In my opinion they’ve passed the point of difficult into impossible. So the US citizens later have to endure economic hardship that will not becoming better even as they successful all to repay them. Had it have to be repaid in real wealth which is materials and works not in Fiat dollars i doubt there would be ‘US’ left. They’ll rather split up much like how the USSR collapse.

          • #’~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4v!=^

            Maybe, but none of this proves that those running the show in the US have realised that repayment of that debt will be difficult to repay. I see no evidence, so as far as I can tell the penny has not dropped yet.
