US Secretary of State: Russia's continued support for President Assad undermines our common goals in the fight against terrorism

61
US State Department spokesman John Kirby reported on telephone talks between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry, during which they discussed the situation in Syria, in particular, Russia's support for the current President Bashar Al-Assad.




“The Secretary of State has made it clear that Russia's continued support for President Assad threatens the expansion of the conflict and undermines our common goals in the fight against terrorism,” said Kirby RIA "News".

In addition, Kerry reiterated Washington’s commitment to fighting the Islamic State (IG) together with the international coalition, which includes more than 60 states, while stressing that Assad cannot be a credible member of this coalition. Also, according to him, “the United States would welcome a constructive role of Russia in the fight against IS”.

"The Secretary of State stressed that there is no military solution to the conflict in Syria, which can only be resolved through a political transfer of power from Assad," Kirby said.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in turn, particularly stressed the need to create a united front to counter terrorist groups in Syria.

      According to "Tai ...", "The Guardian", Russia back in 2012 proposed to consider the issue of Syrian President Bashar Assad's resignation as part of a peace agreement, but Western countries ignored this! This compromise proposal was voiced by Churkin at the United Nations, but the United States, Great Britain and France ignored this proposal, and now they are trying to shift from a sick mind to a healthy one - and even with their Anglo-Saxon meanness, accusing us of all mortal sins! But here from the principle it is necessary to help Assad so that he would nevertheless break the ridge of ISIS Frankinshtein, created and financed from across the ocean, and Kerry, knowing how to be a virgin, knows this very well!

      This is not idiocy. This is a blinding hatred of Putin and Assad for peacefully resolving the issue of Syrian chemical weapons, found and proved the British trace in the supply of binary chemical weapons components used by IS. See an article on how the United States plans to build a pipeline state on the shards of Iraq and Syria, Putin and Assad frustrate all of these plans, while dumb-headed Europe helps to destroy itself by taking part in the bombing and accepting the refugees it creates.

    What corn did Assad step on to Washington? Just the same, manic hatred is observed. If it weren’t for Russia, they’ve already “bombed Syria into the Stone Age”, ignoring the victims among the civilian population. There is a suspicion that Assad is standing in the way of some grandiose plans of mattress to "pacify Russia", and there is simply no way around it. Is this not on the way of Qatar gas to southern Europe? And is this the whole reason?
    It is funny that in recent years, any activity of the mattress leads to the opposite results.

    Of course it’s undermining, you would look at all 60 states that are part of the coalition, would quickly get rid of Assad and ISIS would rush to the Caucasus to fight with Russia, but this turns out to be a bummer, they can’t directly bomb Syria for the third year, Russia says.

    And the hidden support of ISIS, this is not an undermining in the fight against terrorism?! Bashar al-Assad said: to solve the problems, it is necessary to stop supporting terrorists in the Middle East. There is a war for colonies and spheres of influence far from the American borders. It comes with great benefit to the American capital - both financial and political. And Russia is supporting the legitimate authorities in the fight against terrorism! President Assad refused to just play by Washington’s rules. Apparently, what would the United States love you need to become a traitor to your people, country!

    Secretary of State makes clear that Russia's continued support for President Assad threatens to widen the conflict and undermines our common counterterrorism goals
    At the same time, he does not recognize Assad as a terrorist, but the United States supports numerous "moderate" terrorist groups - all kinds of Al Nusra, etc. Thus, the United States puts Russia in demand for a regime change in Syria. Now - in a political way, since the military failed. But somewhere in 2011, Assad even declared that he was ready to leave, but by agreement, after the elections and reforms. The opposition being incited by the USA then did not go for it.
    Another point: Israeli regulars in VO pay attention to the fact that only the Alawites are standing behind Assad, and they say, 15-20% of the population, and they do not constitute the majority. And all the Sunnis, they say, are against him. And they forget that the increase in the number of Sunnis in Syria happened in exactly the same way as the Palestinian Arabs in Israel - through emigration from the same Iraq, Egypt, etc. For Israel, they actually do not recognize these newly arrived Arabs as Palestinians, but in Syria they recognize them as Syrians.
    But Assad is now in a terribly difficult situation, and it will be very difficult to maintain the unity of the country. In the 20th century, an Alawite state entity existed on the Syrian coast for some time under the mandate of France. I am afraid that even now the matter is moving towards the division of Syria on a confessional-national basis.

    Assad is a legitimate legitimate authority supported by the majority of the Syrian population. The Assad regime is an obstacle to the spread of radical terrorist movements. We are all well aware of who created the ISIS monster, al-Qaeda, Nusra, etc., and for what purposes it was actively armed and trained. It is vital for them to create a united front of terrorist groups
    If they do not eliminate Assad, then ISIS will move on them - to Israel, Turkey, Europe, Saudi Arabia and so on.

    The first alarm signals have already begun - thugs have begun to penetrate the EU. Hence the hysterical calls and threats in our direction
