"Kommersant": Beijing did not send to the shores of Syria aircraft carrier "Liaoning"

35
In recent days, the world media reported on the arrival of the Chinese aircraft carrier "Liaoning" in Syrian Tartus in order to assist Moscow and Damascus in the fight against the Islamic State terrorist organization. The newspaper dealt with the situation Kommersant.




The first to report on an aircraft carrier was published on September 23 by the Lebanese portal Al-Masdar Al-Arabic. With reference to the Syrian military resource reported that "Chinese ships passed through the Suez Canal 22 September, and the military will have to arrive in Tartus within six weeks."

After a day of 3, the Israeli site DEBKAfile wrote about this, adding that the aircraft carrier "will soon be transferred to a squadron of carrier-based fighter jets X-15", which will deal with the destruction of the Islamists.

Interest in news fueled a not very specific statement by the representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hong Lei: "China opposes terrorism in all its forms and is ready to work with the world community to combat terrorist forces."

But the Chinese military put it more clearly. “This is pure rumor. China could not send warships to Syria to support one of the parties to the conflict. China’s position is to enable the Syrian people to decide their own future, ”said PLA Naval Academy professor Zhang Junse.

“The 152 squadron of China’s naval forces is located in the region of North Africa and the Middle East, but there are no aircraft carriers in it,” explained the professor. - It is usually used to protect sea traffic from pirates, but now makes a round-the-world tour. The detachment actually passed through the Suez Canal 22 in September to get to the Baltic across the Mediterranean Sea. ”

The participation of the aircraft carrier "Liaonin" (the former Soviet cruiser "Varyag") in the Syrian operation caused great doubts among Russian expert at the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Vasily Kashin. “Perhaps China will still decide to send troops to Syria, for the PLA it would be a great debut abroad. But, firstly, it would not be a training Liaonin, but amphibious ships of the type 071 Project, and, secondly, it is rather strange to do this before the UN General Assembly meeting, ”he said, expressing confidence that the leaders of the states their actions in Syria will be coordinated there.

      That's right, the States themselves gave Russia, China and Iran the opportunity to stake out in the Mediterranean Sea thanks to their fuss with ISIS. China (as we hope) will not leave Syria besides Syria will begin to grow its bases throughout the Mediterranean region (as I hope ours) for the Americans, after all, Libya must also be put out and Iraq ... laughing Well, if the Americans, as they say, climb into the hall ... then you can just ask them in surprise - DO YOU SUPPORT WORLD TERRORISM?!?
      As they say, who lives what China over to Tartus has sent his only aircraft carrier so far, and soon we are waiting for his air group in Syria, and meanwhile Petya is trying to satisfy Obama the pichalka ...

        China will not participate in the Syrian war


        September 28th, 10:12
        People's Daily:

        "Chinese warships are heading to the shores of Syria."
        Igor Morozov, a member of the Federation Council’s international affairs committee, said China had decided to join the fight against ISIS and sent its warships off the coast of Syria. The Russian news agency quoted Morozov as saying: "Chinese warships entered the Mediterranean Sea, the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning approaches Syria."

        The press service of the Chinese Navy reports that China’s dispatch of an aircraft carrier to the Mediterranean is simply a rumor by a dissolved member of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation. Just like sending Chinese military advisers to Syria: "China respects any choice of the Syrian people, and will not participate in any military intervention in Syria for or against the existing regime, so we will not send warships and interfere in the internal affairs of Syria . China defends a fair and objective position, "the statement said.

        A Chinese squadron of 20 ships is currently conducting global exercises. Which are overgrown with rumors and were drawn to the events in Syria. The squadron left China on August 23 to conduct a long hike. According to reports, the campaign will last more than five months, and is designed for more than 30000 km of track. "Start in China, then through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea, to the Baltic and vice versa. Ships are expected to visit Sudan, Egypt, Denmark, Finland, and possibly Russia."

    I suppose a member of the Federation Council at least works for Chinese intelligence, as a result of rumors spread by him, China trolls the Russian Federation, because from their statement it turns out that the Russian Federation participates in military intervention (no matter for whom) intervenes in the internal affairs of Syria and does not respect any choice of Syrian of the people
    Yes, China is not as simple as it is imagined in wet dreams, it is absolutely the third player in politics and is glad at every opportunity to insert an opponent that the United States does not care about the Russian Federation.

    The Russian Federation, the Syrian Arab Republic, the Republic of Iraq and the Islamic Republic of Iran decided to open an information center in Baghdad, which will include representatives of the general staffs of these states. This information was confirmed by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov before starting a meeting with his American counterpart John Kerry. The center is necessary for organizing the fight against the Islamic State (organization is prohibited in the Russian Federation).
    TASS military diplomatic sources report that the main function of the center will be the collection, processing, synthesis and analysis of current information on the situation in the Middle East region - in Basically to combat IG. Information will be distributed according to its purpose and promptly transmitted to the general staffs of these countries. An officer of the armed forces of the participating countries will lead the center on a replaceable basis. It is known that in accordance with the agreement reached, the Iraqi side will take over the management of the center in the next three months.

An unarmed, training can, WHY to the shores of Syria? Moreover, in the image of the SU-33, J-15, when taking off from an aircraft carrier, they carry a minimum of weapons ... Usually no more than 2 tons, while J-11 more than 8 tons. Who draws such ducks?
