Vice Prime Minister of Syria: Peace will come to the country in 2015

The visit to Moscow of the Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of Syria on economic issues Kadri Jamil has ended. In the current Syrian government, he represents the Popular Front for Liberation and Change, which is part of the internal opposition. Before leaving Moscow, Kadri Jamil gave an interview to the Voice of Russia.


- Please tell us about the results of your visit to Moscow. And, by the way, specify what was the status of your visit - state or party? So you represented the government or the opposition?

- The Syrian government did not authorize me to discuss any specific questions, I am not responsible in the government for the political component. In government, my area of ​​responsibility is economic issues. So this visit was a purely party one, I was here as a representative of the Popular Front.

- Nevertheless, could you briefly describe the current situation in the Syrian economy?

- The economic situation in the country directly depends on the security situation. It is impossible to solve economic problems without resolving pressing political issues and, of course, without solving security problems. We need stability. It is also necessary to solve the problem of international economic sanctions. All of these factors in the aggregate have a very negative effect on the situation in the economy. The real situation is very complex, the influence of the external factor is also very large. A way out of the impasse is possible only through the search for a political solution through dialogue.

In this sense, the main hopes are related to the convening of the second Geneva Conference on Syria. Now there is already confidence that this conference will be convened after all. And international and regional players are already aware that it is impossible to solve the Syrian problem militarily, the exit is possible only through negotiations.

- This is, as I understand it, the point of view of the "internal" Syrian opposition. Meanwhile, the external opposition in the person of the Syrian National Council has already refused to participate in the Geneva Conference. What is the relationship between internal and external opposition now, do you have points of contact?

- There is a relationship between the internal and external opposition, but about the points of contact all the more difficult. The external opposition focuses on a number of external players, while the internal one focuses on its supporters inside the country. External players set certain tasks for their partners from the external opposition, which correspond to their interests, but completely unrealizable within Syria in the current conditions. Our position is based on an analysis of the situation inside the country. Therefore, the points of contact between us are very few. In addition, the external opposition, as you rightly noted, in fact, was divided in its views on participation in the Geneva Conference.

- Is it possible to convene the Geneva Conference without the participation of certain representatives of the external opposition?

- The convening of the Geneva Conference is a resolved issue, international forces agree on the need to convene it. As stated, the doors of the conference will be open to all who care about the fate of Syria. Those who refuse to take part will be left out of the new political reality and will doom themselves to defeat and isolation. "Geneva-2" must first ban the export of mercenaries, weapons and money to Syria, that is to close the borders for them. If this happens, then we can say that the situation in Syria is beginning to normalize. It is the duty of the international community.

- A lot of data about how many people left Syria during the war years, you know the exact number, can we talk about millions of people?

- No, these numbers are too high. Inside Syria, there are about five million displaced people left. Those people who have left their homes and are located in the border areas of Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, I think, not more than two million.

- Do you agree that Syria is really a humanitarian catastrophe?

- In some areas we can talk about a humanitarian catastrophe. The country needs primarily flour, sugar, rice and medicines. Syria helps real friends of the country - Russia, Iran, China.

- In Syria, the process of disarmament is underway, it is very expensive, the country itself cannot cope financially with this issue. Which countries have already expressed a desire to help Damascus?

- Russia has declared its willingness to help in this matter. I think the international community should be seriously involved in this. Because it is very expensive, the situation in Syria is difficult. To date, UN experts on the prohibition of chemical weapons have conducted inspections at half of the facilities in Syria, and the process of destruction of chemical weapons has begun. I think that by the middle of next year this work should be finished.

- Some of the opposition intentionally disrupt this process?

- Some members of the opposition do not want to stop the violence in Syria, so they are trying to find different reasons to thwart the political process, including this one.

- What are your expectations regarding the future of Syria, when you can wait for the end of the conflict?

“I think that next year we will be able to get out of the crisis and begin lifting Syria from the ruins.”

- So you expect the Syrians to meet 2015 year in the world?

- Yes. It must be so.

    Hello. Yes, if they don’t put pressure on Syria, if the Assad government remains recognized by the world community, then as a result it will be able to get the necessary weapons needed to fight terrorists, and these, in turn, will be anti-government, illegal groups (gangs) - if everything were cut off from supplies, it would be possible to win.
    But it bothers me a little that either the Minister of Defense, or his deputy, said that no one can defeat in Syria (neither terrorists, nor the government.
    It is possible that the country will fall apart. And the Sunnis will separate sad .

    hi Yes, most state TV understands that the Syrian issue must be resolved only peacefully, but the Americans, as always, are "exceptional" in their opinion:"Kerry said the war in Syria will continue if Assad becomes the country's president again."[/ishttp: //politobzor.net/show-6684-kerri-zayavil-chto-voyna-v-sirii-prodolzhi

      It is necessary that the war in Syria spread to the territory of the United States (unobtrusively), and then the cockroaches in the head of the politicians of America will subside.

    Geneva-2 should first of all prohibit the export of mercenaries, weapons and money to Syria, that is, close the borders for them.

    It would be nice, but it’s hard to believe that those who order and pay for the "Syrian theme" will just give it up.
    Omitted, by all accounts, Obama will seek revenge in Geneva!

      Good morning everybody hi

      Another news worthy of attention namely.
      Syria has expressed a desire to join the Customs Union
      Meanwhile, Syria has expressed a desire to join the Customs Union. This was reported by the Russian portal Pravda.ru. An active discussion of this issue is currently taking place in Moscow, where Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Kadri Jamil is on an official visit. He confirmed that official Damascus is ready to join the Customs Union.

      Negotiations with Russian partners are almost complete. According to him, now this topic is being discussed with colleagues from Astana and Minsk. According to Kadri, this step could give Syria economic dividends. I note that the Customs Union is a purely economic union, and it is possible that other world powers will consider Syria's possible entry into its ranks as a political step.

          in order to join the customs union, you must first completely control at least the borders. The entire northern border is in the hands of the militants. At present, this looks unrealistic.

        Apparently because of this, the Syrians are so confident that "Peace will come to the country in 2015." And there is nothing else to assume so. Where an economic union is, it is not far from a military one. The prerequisites have apparently been created in Moscow. It was high time.

      and if they fall into the hands of militants? after all, almost the entire heavy arsenal of militants is Syrian weapons. They will be sold to interested countries. It will turn out they themselves have supplied the West with their own secrets.

            Maybe the Uighurs from Kazakhstan are most likely, since there was already infa about the Uighurs from China, that they are fighting on the side of the militants, but the whole family ?!

    Rebel commander killed in Syria

    Syrian opposition activists and state television report that a government army killed a prominent defector who became the leader of the rebels.

    Yasser al-Abboud was killed during the fighting on Monday in the city of Tafas in the southern province of Daraa.

    Al-Abboud was one of the first senior Syrian army officials to publicly desert and join the rebel struggle to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. It is worth noting that most military defectors were of low rank.

    Al-Abbud commanded the military council of the Free Syrian Army and led the rebel brigade to Daraa.

    The Syrian uprising continues for the third year, after initially peaceful protests against Assad escalated into a civil war, which killed more than 110 thousand people.
