Assad refuses to surrender the country, and the West calls on him to resign
Syrian leader Bashar Assad is respectful of his behavior, he refused to capitulate on special conditions. The British newspaper The Times acknowledged the fact that Madrid was conducting secret mediation talks with Damascus on this subject. Moreover, according to Syrian sources, Syrian President Bashar Assad was promised in exchange for a concession to the supreme power and the transfer to the opposition "democratic government", "comfortable old age", "mansion by the sea" and "personal pension". But Assad did not succumb to the entreaties of the "burzhuinov" and their "barrels of jam."
According to British journalists, this proposal was conveyed to the leader of Syria in July by a “high-ranking diplomat,” a close assistant of the Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, Bernadino Leon. But to the data of British journalists: "Assad did not even respond to the diplomatic proposal."
Other Syrian news
17avgusta a telephone conversation took place between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, during which the Syrian leader announced the cessation of all hostilities to suppress anti-government protests. This statement was made in response to the call of the UN Secretary General to immediately stop "all military operations and mass arrests." 18 August this news was supplemented by the message that the Syrian state will visit the United Nations humanitarian mission. Its purpose will be to monitor those regions and cities where military operations were conducted to suppress anti-government protests. According to the head of the UN Humanitarian Affairs Committee, Valerie Amos, representatives of the humanitarian delegation received guarantees from Damascus that they would have open access to any country of interest to it. According to Amos, the participants of the humanitarian mission will pay special attention to those cities from which information was received about the most severe dispersal of demonstrators by the law enforcement forces. Approval of this mission was obtained from Syria during the communication of Assad and Ban Ki-moon.
This is happening against the background of increasing pressure from the side of the so-called. "World community" (handful of countries that have the audacity to make statements on behalf of all countries of the planet). So, in the evening of August 18, Washington, London, Paris and Berlin called on the head of Syria to resign. And US President Barack Obama also reported on the arrest of all the assets of the Syrian authorities, which are located in the United States of America, and imposed a ban on the import of oil and oil products from the Syrian state. The US ban touched five Syrian oil companies: General Petroleum Corporation, Syrian Company for Oil Transport, Syrian Gas Company, Syrian Petroleum Company and Sytrol, all of which are state owned. Ankara, in response to the military operation in Latakia, made another sharp statement: the Turkish Foreign Ministry reported that if the Syrian government does not immediately stop the brutal suppression of the opposition forces, Turkey reserves the right to retaliate. True, what could be these measures, they did not specify.
The last military operation that Damascus conducted was the “cleansing” of Latakia. The city was blocked from the sea, the Syrian Navy even opened fire, armored vehicles entered the city. The operation was completed on August 17, on the same day the “events” in Deir ez-Zor were completed. According to Syrian authorities, the purpose of the operations was the destruction of "armed gangs" that "terrorized the local population." In Latakia, the gangsters managed to knock out from the Al-Ramel area al-Janubi, then the Syrian security forces began to pursue the remaining members of the group. In Deir-ez-Zor, according to the authorities, all the attackers were eliminated. Citizens of both cities expressed gratitude to their authorities for restoring order. What is interesting is the militants use tactics of bruising the authorities and the population: they strike the police, government agencies, troops, then hide in residential areas, of course, when the authorities react, sending troops, the uncomplicated can suffer. Thus, they increase the discontent of the population, cause international resonance.
Syria Round Table
On August 16, a roundtable was held at RIA Novosti on events in Syria. Among its participants were Russian and Syrian experts. According to the Syrian expert Ali Salim, the main, destructive role in the events was played by the forces of the West, their goal is to destroy the Syrian statehood, thus striking a blow at Iran. In Syria, Western intelligence agencies are trying to repeat the Libyan scenario, create a bridgehead such as Benghazi, from which it will be possible to conduct an offensive against Damascus. Already relying on this bridgehead and the “manual” rebel “government”, the “national salvation committee” (and it was actually created at the conference in Turkey), NATO will be able to intervene.
But the Syrian leadership was able to quickly respond and attempts to create such a bridgehead in several cities were thwarted. Similar uprisings were inspired in Dera'a, Homs, Hama, Der-ez-Zur, Latakia, and a number of other raions. The most difficult situation was in the old nest of Islamism - Hama. The Syrian authorities lost control of the city for almost a month. Only in early August, the Syrian troops were able to restore order there, although the events in Hama caused a great response, providing a good excuse for further demonizing the regime of Bashar al-Assad.
Although the events in the same Latakia show that the wailing of the Western media about the “peaceful demonstrators” is a lie during the ongoing information war against Syria. So, on 16 August, Syrian anti-terror forces lost in street fights in Latakia only by killed 17 special forces. Most of them were killed as a result of sniper fire, which led the "civilians". In the same Latakia, the West tried again to rely on the Islamists, according to eyewitnesses, the areas of Scantor and Remel Falistin were declared an Islamic emirate, Sharia laws were introduced there, and the emir was chosen with the Vizier. But the West does not see this point-blank, and requires a dialogue with the "democratic opposition."
Yes, and the opposition does not notice the concessions of the authorities: the official Damascus took serious measures, canceling the state of emergency that had been in force for several decades (48 years), introducing a multi-party system. And it would be foolish to legalize the radical organization “Muslim Brotherhood”. This is a force that is supported in the West, whose headquarters is located in London, which has carried out a series of terrorist acts in Syria, and attacks on officials and officers.
