UN Security Council approved a plan for the transition to a peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict

44
Today, the UN Security Council unanimously approved the Geneva communique and the Vienna statements as the basis for a political settlement of the conflict in Syria, reports RIA News.




The Security Council also noted the “need for a mechanism to monitor, verify and report on a cease-fire.”

According to the resolution, the UN Secretary-General should “submit to the Security Council a report on options for creating such a mechanism (monitoring a truce), which it can support.”

According to Secretary of State John Kerry, the truce will apply to all but the Islamic State and Dzhebhat al-Nusra groups. ”

“We hope that the national cease-fire will include everyone except Daishe and al-Nusra, as well as those we can designate further,” said Kerry.

“The IG cannot be allowed to gain control over Syria. So we have a global priority - to fight the terrorist group, but also end the civil war and bring back the legitimacy of the Syrian government, ”he added.

According to the resolution, within six months "a schedule and procedure for drafting a new constitution should be defined," and after 18 months in Syria should pass "free and fair elections in accordance with the new constitution, organized under the supervision of the UN."

“The future of Syria will be determined by the Syrian people themselves,” the resolution stresses.

In early January, negotiations should begin with representatives of the opposition.

"The resolution has just been adopted, the documents of the international group from October 30 and November 14 of 2015 on the ways to implement the Geneva communique 2012 of the year were approved, thus clearly stated that, firstly, these documents constitute a single platform for resolving the bloody Syrian crisis and, -second, that the Viennese format is the only one that unites all influential players. And because of this, it is able to provide conditions for a stable and fair settlement through negotiations between the government of the Syrian Arab Republic and the entire spectrum of the opposition, ”said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

"The UN Security Council confirmed the need to respect the sovereignty of Syria," he said.

Lavrov stressed that he was counting on "balanced recommendations from the Secretariat of the Security Council on the necessary steps in all directions agreed in Vienna."

“We are confident that our colleagues in the team of Staffan de Mistura (the special representative of the secretary general for Syria) will approach these assignments with full responsibility, impartially, not giving in to possible attempts to put pressure on them in one direction or another and being guided solely by the task of helping to find mutual agreement between government and opposition, ”he said.

“As these recommendations are ready, we will be ready as co-chairs of the“ international support group for Syria ”together with the United States and the United Nations to convene a regular meeting to determine on a consensus basis further steps in support of a Syrian settlement,” said Lavrov at a Security Council meeting.

      In the meantime, the United Nations is writing pieces of paper and approving resolutions. The Syrian army is loyal to the country, the people of Syria and Bashar al-Assad, with the support of our VKS and volunteers, are clearing all new parts of the country.

      According to Secretary of State John Kerry, a ceasefire will concern everyone,
      except for the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra groups. "

      “We hope that the national cease-fire will include everyone except Daishe and al-Nusra, as well as those we can designate further,” said Kerry.

      Something I didn’t get into the meaning of these excerpts - everyone stops fighting,
      they don’t shoot - but ISIS doesn’t concern ?! Can they go on?

        “The future of Syria will be determined by the Syrian people themselves,” the resolution stresses.

        But it seems to me that without Assad, Russia has no future in Syria.
        And this is precisely what the West is pushing: in their opinion, Assad does not have the right to go to the polls.
        Russia, the question of Assad, is still trying to push into the background. Let's see how strong our diplomacy is and whether it will be able to resolve this issue in its favor.

          But it seems to me that without Assad, Russia has no future in Syria.

          So.
          Of all the political elites in Syria, only the Alawites are agents of Russian politics in the BV.
          Therefore, there are still questions about a "peaceful settlement", especially regarding the composition of the "transitional government" and the content of the new constitution.

            Syria in composition is a multinational and multiconfessional country. The Alawites are only a small part of the population. 87% of Syrian Muslims are Sunnis. The remaining 13% of Muslims are composed of Alawites, Ismailis and Shiites. Shiites during the war in Iraq significantly increased due to Iraqi refugees.
            10% of the total population are Christians of various faiths. Kurds - 9% of the total population. Armenians - 2,3% (mainly Aleppo)

            Assad recently became a Sunni officially. Half of his generals are Sunnis. A wife from birth is a Sunni. His support will be quite powerful among both Christians and Muslims.

            Let's look at further actions.

              Nobody will believe in this, maybe in Alavism it allows you to pretend to switch to another religion and observe the Alawite cult secretly
              In this hostile environment, the Alawites widely practiced such a thing that allowed them to behave like Sunnis, since, according to their belief, the “dressing” of other sects does not harm the “body”. Thus, the concept of jihad among them is embodied in the struggle to conceal the secrets of their religion from infidels. This ability to religious mimicry provided them with survival in the conditions of persecution, and pragmatism became one of the features of the Alawites, forced as chameleons to adapt to different authorities.

                Assad did not “dress” like a Sunni. He officially and publicly ACCEPTED the Sunni version of Islam as it should be done according to Islamic traditions. He is now a real Sunni. It is precisely his official position as a representative of the Sunni community in the international arena that plays a role here.
                Inside Syria, the Syrian Sunnis are overwhelming and are not opponents of Assad. Initially, all the confusion occurred during a drought, when famine began in eastern Syria. There, radicals from the SA appeared in several villages and began to trouble the people. When they got the start of the demonstrations, they used weapons against the police. And then it started. Assad's army surrounded the settlements and razed everything to the ground. We did it right, of course. But this story was used by the states and the Saudis to raise a "wave" against Assad.
                The Syrians are well aware of the ins and outs of the war. And those who live there now are definitely for Assad, regardless of religion or nationality. Otherwise, he would not have lasted so much time with his meager resources. No financial injections from Iran and Russia would save him.
                The question is which of the external players will turn out to be smarter and richer in handling the "opposition" and how many gangs will be able to outbid.
                Let's hope that Russia will turn out to be a preferable figure than the USA or the Saudis.

          .. the opinion of those who were not asked (West), who do not care .. Assad joked well in an interview:
          MOSCOW, Dec 19 - RIA News. Bashar al-Assad reacted with humor to the recent statements of some Western representatives - in particular, US Secretary of State John Kerry - that the Syrian leader could still remain in power. Earlier, the West persistently demanded his departure. "Thank them for that, otherwise I was already packing my bags. I had to leave, but now I can stay."- said the president in an interview with the Dutch television and radio company NOS.

      Gentlemen, carefully read the text of the resolution))) A standard set of phrases, nothing new. In the UN, this is saved in the Word, then the dates and names of countries are changed, and on a new one. Any person who monitors the situation in Syria, after reading the text of the resolution, immediately comes up with an elementary question: who will negotiate with whom? On the one hand, Assad, and on the other? Small-minded, so-called, "free Syrian opposition"? Who is this? Even in the Western press, I counted a dozen of their leaders) Anyway, just think: why is Assad not being removed and our military's GDP is not going to be withdrawn from Syria? This time, the United States will not be able to plant its "government" and rob the camp openly. It seems to me that VVP learned that "Americans are stupid" (M. Zadornov), and decided not to go head-on, it's too expensive)

      Everyone should understand that the United States needs a pro-American ruler in Syria to control natural resources and their transit routes. And the constitution, democracy, opposition are means and pretexts. They do not give a damn about the long-suffering Syrian people. How to give a damn about the peoples of Africa, about which there is little written in the press - there is generally horror. Example of coltan mining (google). This will be wherever the United States launches its dirty, bloodied hands.

      I think these decisions are very reminiscent of the Minsk Agreements, which each interprets in its own way only the concept of Kerry, and that says about everything how many list of terrorists were and all the same.

      Jaish al-Islam - namely, there, most of the broads from the Caucasus and Central Asia, a legitimate participant in the truce.
      Ahrar-Ash-Sham - left Riyadh, setting an ultimatum - Sharia law throughout Syria, the expulsion or execution of all apostates from the true current (the actual is what the IS does). This is the third Babakh-force after ISIS and Nusra in Syria, with tanks, artillery and tens of thousands of active bayonets. It can also be seen as a participant in the peace process.

      They are trying to stop Assad’s advance and stop Russian airstrikes.
      Read the resolution carefully. Aimed at a "peaceful settlement" ... This is at a time when the opposition is on the other side of the front and mixed with Daesh. At the same time, questions about the recognition of terrorist organizations remained open. this is a planned US action. And it can tie the hands of Russia and Syria.

      The Akhrari with their proposals to return slavery, tribute from the atheists, to cleanse the country from the apostates of the true current (the essence of the atheists - pay tribute, and the apostates, that is, those who follow Islam, but to another stream - will be expelled or destroyed. In fact, the same as the IS does) , introduce hard Sharia, will be especially fun to look at the negotiating table next to Kerry.

    Resolution, although many shout Hurray! This is an anti-Syrian document and is aimed at stopping Assad and Russia.
    Remember when Europe sat down at the discussion table of the Minsk agreements 1? It was after when the offensive of Novorosia was in full swing (stopped in front of Mariupol). Then there was Debaltseve and as a result Minsk 2. Result - the goal is achieved. Novorosia was stopped.
    Now the same picture that was to be expected
    The provocation did not work out, "joint" actions with France and the US proposal to join Russia in their coalition did not yield the same results. The last card is now played. "Minsk 3".

    The news is certainly good. The United States will naturally interpret the resolution in the way it pleases. Based on the situation and the balance of power in this region. Therefore, I think the implementation of the UN resolution will depend primarily on how quickly and successfully the operation to eliminate ISIS and other bandits ends. Something like this.

    Well thank you "Our Fathers, benefactors. We will remember forever!"

    They were in a hurry, damn it, they were scared that, against the background of all the "peacekeepers", Russia is indeed gaining the world status of a real peacekeeper and fighter against the terrorist threat. You are afraid that the world community will eventually understand who is who!
