Sergey Lavrov: The US Armed Forces are going to settle in Syria forever

71
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov commented on all the recent actions and statements of the United States on Syria. According to the head of Russian diplomacy, Washington has broken all these earlier promises. This statement was made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs on the air of the TV channel Euronews:
American special forces and other units are on the ground in Syria illegally, without any invitation from Damascus or a mandate from the UN Security Council. The United States should probably have some kind of strategy, which, I think, consists in settling in Syria with its armed forces forever.



Sergey Lavrov noted that similar actions are being taken by the United States in Iraq and Afghanistan. Moreover, they are taking in spite of all the promises they made earlier.

Sergey Lavrov: The US Armed Forces are going to settle in Syria forever


Sergei Lavrov:
They are already leading the matter to isolating a huge chunk of Syrian territory from the rest of the country in violation of the sovereignty of the territorial integrity of the SAR. There they create quasi-local authorities, in every way they try to create some kind of autonomous education there, relying on the Kurds.


Recall that earlier the United States announced the creation of some border structures in the north of Syria, which have no relation to the real border forces of the SAR. After such US plans were announced, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch. Today, the heads of diplomacy of Turkey and the United States have agreed to cooperate in taking the bilateral relations out of the crisis. At the same time, Turkey is demanding that the United States withdraw its support for the Kurdish detachments at the Turkish borders in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

        It is necessary to work with the Kurds. About 4 years ago I wrote that they play an important role in this conflict. This work should pave the way for such plans of the West. According to media reports, the Kurds are already asking for the support of the SAA in Afghanistan. hi

          We will be forced to simply join the Turks and interfere with corrupt Kurds with sand. There will be no other. Just then, all in vain, if the Merikos realize their plans, and yes they are not negotiable. This is me for our rulers.

            The Kurds will only cross over at Assad when they see how well they live in the rest of Syria, where there are no Kurds left. Then they can send the Americans. But for this it is necessary to compare the Kurdish territory with the land, but ours do not go for that yet.

            Not necessary. After all, the Kurds are scattered. The states cannot support the Kurds in Afrin - one must play on such contradictions. If Assad will support, then how will the relations between the Western and Eastern Kurds develop. Russian diplomats - the best in their field - supported by the Russian Armed Forces, will find how to use it.
            It is not beneficial for the Turks that the states support the Kurds in Syria - another contradiction is the wedge between the NATO allies, which also needs to be used. hi

        They (the Americans) are guaranteed to be fixed where the interests of Russia are manifested most clearly, and where the geopolitical benefit of the Russians is obvious.
        So it was (or rather, it started) in the Balkans, in the Former Yugoslavia, against which NATO was reformatted into a peacekeeping organization, replacing itself and discrediting the UN. And it was supposed to dissolve, in the wake of the ATS.
        In the republics of the Former Yugoslavia, US military bases (led by NATO), immediately upon entering a country torn by civil war, concluded agreements with local authorities (Bosnians, Croats, Kosovars) on staying for 25 years or more. As a result of NATO's policy, our peacekeeping bases ceased to exist after 8 years, although they were part of the IFOR-SFOR-KFOR multinational peacekeeping forces.
        There, the Americans also relied on the local enemies of the Serbs.
        As an example, Camp Bondstyle is the largest US military base abroad in Kosovo. Try it now, pick them up from there.
        This technique has established itself as effective. So they adapt it to BV.

    And against the background of these sudden insights, Russia continues to "drag" the Donbass by the hand along the road of the "Minsk agreements"! Where is the logic of double standards in the work of the Russian Foreign Ministry?
    What will all this turn out for Donbass, and for Russia itself, in the future?

    I think that the whole thing is that the Yankees are not afraid to use their force against Assad and our specialists. And they have a larger group, and they can transfer their reserves and their allies relatively quickly to the bases of the countries neighboring Syria. The Mediterranean Sea is practically NATO’s inner sea, again, is extremely saturated with their naval groups and already deployed aviation. Therefore, they will continue to only escalate and aggravate, and Turkey ... I didn’t doubt its allegiance to NATO and the United States for a second, never. Yes, there is between them problems, you can not doubt To hope that the allied gain for Erdogan is more important, and Brussels also considers Ankara as a profitable springboard and a tool for pushing its main interests (expansion and domination), therefore, it is ready to close its eyes to much.
    Hence Lavrov starts talking about violation of agreements, promises (in diplomacy it is ridiculous, to believe promises), the UN, etc. Because with conventional weapons, the Americans will not succeed in imposing their will, and our nuclear triad is good for protecting our sacred borders, and in such conflicts is not applicable in any form.

    Honest American word - sounds like a joke. In today's America, kidalovo is held in high esteem. The Republican Party accuses its nominee Trump of having ties to Russia. The U.S. Congress does not trust Trump and enacts laws restricting Trump. The United States promises support for Turkey, then throws it, gives guarantees of support to Erdogan, then organizes its overthrow. Ruin their faithful ally KSA. Push KSA on its own ally, Qatar. They turn Georgian Saakashvili, faithful to them, into a Svidomo Ukrainian, and then completely into a homeless person.

        Well, it’s not so simple. Eastern Europe itself was not against joining NATO. And when they entered, they themselves could have asked for a contingent. What could Russia offer them? Honestly, Poland and the Baltic countries probably remember how they were connected. they trust more than their eastern neighbor.

          Misha Saakashvili was not opposed when he overthrew the “hated” Shevardnadze, when they promised him support for starting the war in South Ossetia, then, however, he chewed a tie and thought a little ... once a Georgian and Georgian president ... once Svidomo Ukrainian and mayor of Odessa ... now do not understand who.

        Kidalovo from amers has reached the elite itself, the American elite is already torn apart, now they will throw their old ally Israel into the furnace of war. Now Israel only keeps Netanyahu’s over-effort from war. Those. Americans (including influential Jews) are already throwing Israel.

    Quote: NordUral
    The most offensive is that this is not from the impossible with such "our power!"
    We look:
    Screen just done. And I really hope that this is true. One of them is for my Grudinin.
    You can’t wait and hope more, this power and this president will surrender the country, just as two Judahs, Gorbachev and Yeltsin, surrendered.

    Well, they will not give up power! There will be no perfect peaceful transmission. This death is like many representatives of EdR, Putin will shift (even to the second person in the country), they do not care about khan. It will be such an outcome from the country - the Jews will strangle themselves. Only Putin can now guarantee the integrity of the oligarchy and other Elites. It’s easier for them to remove Grudinin. Literally.

    According to the head of Russian diplomacy, Washington has violated all the previous promises .quote] They are already working to ensure that a huge piece of Syrian territory is separated from the rest of the country in violation of the sovereignty of the territorial integrity of the ATS. There they create quasi-local authorities, are trying in every possible way to create some kind of autonomous formation there, relying on the Kurds. [/ Quote] And what? I do not understand, the minister is complaining to whom - to us (Russian citizens) or what?

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov commented on all recent US actions and statements on Syria.
    And somewhere like this:
    Statement
    Government of the Russian Federation
    The Government of the Russian Federation declares that the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic has requested assistance from the Government of the Russian Federation in restoring the rule of law and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic.
    The Russian Federation has taken the necessary measures to help the Syrian Arab Republic. Currently, the Syrian government and its armed forces control the bulk of its territory.
    At the same time, there are still foreign military units on the territory of the Syrian Republic without its invitation and United Nations sanction.
    The Government of the Russian Federation declares that it is the only legitimate foreign military representative in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic and invites all Governments that have military units not agreed with the Government of the Syrian Republic and the United Nations to withdraw them from its territory within one month.
    The Government of the Russian Federation declares that if foreign troops are detected in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic after the indicated time, it reserves the right to take all necessary measures to supplant or eliminate them.

    Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Council ....

    Whoever “liberated” is what he is holding. Not much different from the outcome of World War II. As the Americans soaked the Communists in Greece, and the USSR, accordingly, conducted repressions in Poland, although it seems that they agreed on something in Yalta ...

    This whole story with Syria will end for our country with the fact that we will simply be pulled out of there, under the offended and perplexing remarks of Lavrov and other leaders .. Because no one is going to quarrel with the Americans, the Turks, or Israel in Moscow .. but soldiers or citizens of the country are just meat ..
