Johnson: it is necessary to discuss further settlement in Syria with Moscow

53
London needs to discuss with Moscow its position on a peaceful settlement in Syria in order to understand the Kremlin’s view of resolving the issue, reports RIA News Statement by the head of the British Foreign Office, Boris Johnson.




We need to discuss with Russia how it sees the end of the crisis in Syria. They managed to keep the power of their ally (Syrian President Bashar) Assad in Damascus, but they did not reach a political solution for Syria. We intend to persistently try to understand how the Russians see his (decision), to see how we can get an impulse to advance in this matter,
The minister said in an interview with the Sunday Times.

Then Johnson compared Russia with ancient Sparta, drawing a parallel between the opposition of the Russian Federation and Western countries and history Greek city states.

I read the history of the Peloponnesian War, Thucydides. It was obvious to me that Athens and their democracy, their openness, their culture and civilization were analogues of the United States and the West,
said the foreign minister, comparing Russia with Sparta.

He noted that in relations between Moscow and the West there was a “moment of hope and change” when the Berlin Wall was destroyed, but against the background of the current crisis in relations, that period “seems to be an absolute illusion”.

The Peloponnesian War (431-404 BC) became the largest confrontation between the unions of the Greek city-states - the Peloponnesian Alliance, led by Sparta and led by Athens, the Union of Delos. At the end of the war, Athens suffered a defeat and ceded Sparta hegemony in the region, the newspaper reminds.

Johnson's visit to Moscow is scheduled for the end of December, on the days before Catholic Christmas.

        Lord, and the arrogant Saxons from Small Britain are sideways to the Syrian peace process. Your special forces have taken away legs and rejoice. Not everything is true .. I would simply send him on an erotic foot trip at the place of our negotiators without even allowing him to leave the plane.
        We will find a political solution without you. With Turkey and Iran. We can connect Iraq in a gesture of goodwill. And you are flawed sitting on your island and do not meddle in our affairs.

          I don’t know, does this observatory have a telescope or not? Maybe there's. But how else will he see from Syria from London?

      Contracts, bogos, etc. .... But Assad has already announced that Russian companies will receive the oil industry, gas, and railroads, and Chinese will destroy the destroyed city infrastructure. Neither England nor the USA shines anything there. So he rushes to the "guests" so that at least some sort of "bone" they threw.

    these western hoopoes are fucking and especially the Anglo-Saxons are incredibly arrogant, the USSR (Russia) dismissed the Warsaw Pact block, withdrew troops from Germany and Poland, contributed to the reunification of Germany, and in response received a bloated NATO block at its borders and false accusations of aggression, it’s funny if there weren’t so sad, the Anglo-Saxons always drive a wedge between Russia and Europe ...

    What does small Britain need in Syria? And why should Russia explain something to them? Russians tell us what you will do for Syria in terms of normalizing the political process, and we will spoil you.

But seriously, all the preliminary show-offs of the unkempt Boriski are designed exclusively for domestic consumption, because the British almost profiled all their influence on world events (the banking side cannot be ignored, but not all of it belongs to the same islanders and in their interests steers). Reason from his visit - no.
