Washington considers the composition of the delegation of the opposition, formed for talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad, representative and legitimate, reports RIA News Statement by State Department spokesman Mark Toner.


Washington approves Saudi-created Syrian opposition group that will negotiate with Assad


To the question “how Washington relates to the differences of the parties on the issue of participants in future negotiations from the opposition,” Toner replied: "We consider this process, which Saudi Arabia conducted to form a High Negotiating Council (opposition), lawful and representative ... The Council chose representatives to conduct negotiations."

Mezhsiriysky negotiations should begin on January 25. However, observers do not exclude their postponement, since the Assad government believes that there are representatives of extremist groups among the negotiators.

    In my opinion, the United States and the Saudis are not interested in negotiations with Assad, and peace has come in Syria. Therefore, they will disrupt all negotiations with Assad.

        The war in Syria is not for peace, but for the opportunity to build a gas pipeline from Qatar to Europe on its (Syrian) territory. The Libyan gas pipeline supplying Europe through Italy is already under the control of Western partners. At stake is the influence of Gazprom, the "national treasure," on the European energy market.

          Absolutely to the point! And they are trying to remove Assad only for this reason! If Assad did not remain loyal to the interests of Moscow, then no one would try to overthrow him, families would still be friends with Erdogan and the United States would not care deeply about what Assad threw up the "dictatorship" in Syria, even if he had packs of oppositionists shot!

          Assad’s government believes that extremist groups are among the negotiators.

          I remember how the Turkomans "shouted" we are fighting with the ISIS but we are against Assad - that is, the opposition ??
          no wonder they were mixed with the earth
          "whoever we bomb is ISIS"

          You can recall the Whitehouse representative that the Turkmen (with connections to al-Qaeda in Syria also known as Al Nusra have the right to defend themselves.): Http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=277_1448520986 Here they are attacking Armenian city of Kessab.
          Shots of missile attacks on the Armenian majority of Kessab appeared yesterday. The attack was by Turkmen terrorists. Kessab is located in Latakia province right on the border with Turkey. Local sources said that there is only one soldier injured; many houses and shops are damaged. . There were no deaths reported, unconfirmed reports said the perpetrators of the attack were eliminated in airstrikes.

          Since when did Gazprom become a "national" property? Yesterday it was shown on TV how Gazprom is selling "national" property.

      On the своих conditions (without Assad, etc.) they are very interested.

      Only here is the problem - the world has not been established anywhere - neither in Afghanistan, nor in Iraq, nor in Libya - wherever the Americans take part - suddenly terrorist enclaves are formed. And in Kosovo, by the way, too. And in Ukraine - a terrorist enclave was formed in most of the country (except Crimea and LDNR). The only difference is that some terrorists are Wahhabi and others are fascist.

      .... In my opinion, the United States and the Saudis are not interested in negotiations with Assad ....

      ..... They are interested in "legal" ways to take Russia (VKS) out of the game .... After all, if Russia agrees with this list, which includes, as our undemocratic opposition, then in fact the VKS will not be able to kill them helping Assad ... Assad will be left alone with them ... And then what will really end up all represent ... It plays into the hands of amers ... hi

      You see, there are such governments, against which, in order to survive, it is necessary to take up arms. I'm not talking about Syria, of course, the people there lived well, and in all of Syria, there were times in prison there were three people.

    A little off topic. The building of the State Department, in the photograph to the material, resembles a hostel of some vocational school. Maybe that's why the states have such diplomats, well ... peculiar? bully
    By the way, compare with the building of the Russian Foreign Ministry

    It is unlikely that they will come to a common denominator. By type of Ukraine.

    The opinion of Washington is presented as the ultimate truth. As far as Russia knows, there were claims that the Saudis together with the Americans tried to smuggle outright terrorists into the negotiating group. Well, let's see how all this (negotiations) will end.

    And formed. It is clear that their own. Only the opposition’s negotiating position is increasingly precarious. As the SAR squeezes Daesh and other barmaley from its territory. Not without our help.

    It is already obvious that they put on the scales: Syria-Ukraine.
    The deadlines for the implementation of plans for solving their problems are the same or close. Bargaining is just beginning.
    This follows from the sharply increased contacts between the Russian Foreign Ministry and the State Department.

        gergi .... What are these scales? We can’t retreat anywhere! Devour!

        In international diplomacy, no issues are resolved without bidding.
        The stronger the opponents, the tougher the bargaining and the less concessions. There are no absolute victories in diplomacy. And now, the crises in Syria and Ukraine are moving, precisely, into the stage of diplomatic decisions. And the fact that the Americans sharply changed the tone on both
        positions, says that, they recognized our military capabilities, therefore
        sit down at the negotiating table, hoping to replay us in his political decision. What are they masters, taking on the role of a judge, determining the legitimacy of elections and the legitimacy
        authorities in a particular country.

    I’m wondering what it’s called when the rulers of another state appoint opposition to the government of one state. They are not oh ate by chance? Maybe we, too, will form an opposition to the US government, not so, entrust the formation of the dad to it, and let Putin approve.

    "We consider this process, which Saudi Arabia conducted to form a High Negotiating Council (opposition), lawful and representative ... The Council chose representatives to conduct negotiations."

    But this does not mean that we also think so. Representation will be filtered primarily by Russia, and not some USA & CA. There will be no second 1945.

    "Washington considers the composition of the opposition delegation formed for negotiations with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to be representative and legitimate" ----- It seems to me that our belt-pulling will be in vain, they will push through. The cut falls, although Mr. Peskov denies it, apparently just goes into the sand settling in the right pockets, but the cut is not the one, weak, you can't buy much. So you will repent, you will receive absolution and even a blessing.

      Bite your lip, and bomb, bomb terrorists, push them out of Syria. With these "little girls" like the Saudis, Turkey and the United States, one can only negotiate "on the victory field". Otherwise, they will devour, because they will not fulfill any promises. Let's stop - we will still be squeezed, in the sense, the Russian economy. While you are fighting - you live, this is the alignment now.

    Assad, Russia and Iran must unequivocally set a condition for any opposition - there will be no negotiations if the opposition acts under the auspices of Saudi Arabia, in fact, the aggressor country in relation to Syria. Let the Saud go through the forest, or rather the desert. 10 Yemen in their liver. Still, Turkey would be dragged there, into the negotiators! All these "iguns" must be sent right away ... well, it's clear where. There can be negotiations with the Saud, but they are separate, in the "Syria - SA" format, not in any way connected with the internal Syrian settlement.
