Obama: The United States will do everything possible to achieve a truce in Syria, but the White House has no illusions about this

41
The White House has no illusions about an immediate cease-fire in Syria, but the United States will actively contribute to the implementation of the plan for the peaceful settlement of the situation in the country, reports RIA News Barack Obama's statement.




“If it (the truce) is implemented, and this is a very big“ if ”, the cessation of hostilities can reduce violence, provide more food and help to Syrians who are suffering and need them. It can save lives. Potentially, it can lead to negotiations on a political settlement that will help end the civil war, so that everyone can focus on the destruction of the IG, ”the president said.

“Therefore, the United States will do everything it can to maximize the chances of a cessation of hostilities,” he added.

According to Obama, a truce will not come at once at the scheduled time.

“The cessation of hostilities, which is scheduled for midnight tomorrow, is a potential step towards ending the chaos. Even in the best of circumstances, we do not expect violence to end immediately. We are confident that the fighting will continue, in particular, because not only the IS, but organizations such as Dzhebhat al-Nusra, which are not parties to the negotiations and hostile to the United States, will continue to fight, ”he said.

The President expressed the hope that the Syrian authorities and Russia will also fulfill their obligations under the agreement.

“All forces that are parties to the cessation of hostilities must cease attacks, including aviation bombing. Humanitarian aid must be allowed into besieged areas. Much will depend on whether the Syrian regime, Russia and their allies will fulfill their obligations. The days ahead will be critical, and the world will carefully monitor this, ”he said.

At the same time, the fate of Bashar Assad is still a stumbling block in negotiations with the Russian Federation and Iran.

“This is an area where significant differences remain between us and the Russians, Iranians and some other players on the ground,” Obama said.

“The process agreed in Vienna is clear - a transition to a more representative government, a new constitution and subsequently free elections. I repeat again: I am sure that such a future cannot include Bashar Assad. It is clear that after years of barbaric war, which he leads with his people, including torture, barrel bombs, siege of cities and famine, many Syrians will not stop fighting until Assad leaves power, ”the president said.

According to him, the IG had serious problems.

“Thanks to the coordination of many countries, including the continued work of Turkey to strengthen the border, the flow of foreign terrorist fighters to Syria seems to be finally slowing down. As a result, there are fewer IG fighters on the battlefield in Syria and Iraq, ”Obama said.

"The IG has lost a number of key cities - more than 40% of the territory in Iraq that it once controlled," he added.

“We destroy warehouses where the IG keeps its cash, their money literally turns into smoke. As a result, the IG was forced to cut wages to its militants, and this increasingly lowers their morale. We continue to receive reports of desertion and the executions of those who are trying to desert, ”Obama said.

“I want to make absolutely clear that there will be no cease-fire in relation to IS. We will continue the relentless fight against them ... We will continue to use all means to eliminate the threat of IG wherever they (the terrorists) are, ”he concluded.

      They always have a whole bunch of these official desk statements.
      Therefore, even if Russia defeats all the evil in the world, destroys corruption and stops wars, an American statement will appear that Russia is to blame for the murder of humanity's eternal dream of a bright future. And next sanctions will be introduced.

        I heard about barrel tomatoes, but I heard about barrel bombs for the first time! Maybe someone in the know what kind of miracle this weapon is ?!

        In general, as these creatures were * cheaters, they remained so! I do not really understand the meaning of our agreements with them. The country of false murders * people *, thieves, murderers and prostitutes, imagining itself a world hegemon, is trying to decide whether Assad is the president or not! Who will ask you now ?!

        I don’t know what we have there for a cunning plan, but the fact that the terrorists should be destroyed, the opposition should be in prison, Assad should be the president, and the mattress should be destroyed, these are elementary truths!

      As a result, the IS was forced to cut salaries of its militants, and this is increasingly lowering their morale

      Baran Obama again lies like a gray gelding. The United States never cared about hunger, killing, and suffering in other countries. Moreover, these factors have always been artificially created and cultivated with great diligence by the United States itself. In Syria, another trick is being prepared, a black-eared eared out of his pants is ready to jump on us

    And of course, the fate of Putin is very concerned about Obama. Well, just really. Khodorkovsky even promised immunity to him if Putin himself surrendered power to the bad girl of the Opposition.

    Obamkm in Syria decided to protect "his" in this way. It turns out that IS (their own) is no longer a threat to the states and they are not terrorists at all. How much you can be hypocritical, it's time to stop and think (unless of course there is something left to think about) about what they have done in the world and, most importantly, why. fool

    Black firebrand acts as a good political officer. According to the principle - if the booze cannot be prevented, then it must be headed.
    Only a little in their niggard manner - if you can’t achieve victory, then you urgently need to stick to someone else's. The next pearl will be a statement that they say one step is left before victory and someone is stopping to take this step. We supposedly don’t know who, but it’s like Russians. It’s necessary to clarify in the office ...

    hesitated with their truces! New Russia has just begun to crush Bandera and the Natsik - at once a truce and a ceasefire! ... in Syria they just squeezed the Ishilovites and other terrorists into a corner - at once a truce and a ceasefire ... Finish it to the end! and then talk!

    what if Stalin stopped the troops on the approaches to Berlin and began to talk with Hitler about a truce?

    “If it (the ceasefire) is implemented, which is a very big 'if', a cessation of hostilities can reduce violence, provide more food and help to Syrians who are suffering and need them so much. It can save lives. It has the potential to lead to negotiations on a political settlement that will help end the civil war so that everyone can focus on destroying IS, ”the (US) president said.
