Assad: Erdogan's last trump is Aleppo

Syrian leader Bashar Asad in an interview with Cuban agency Prensa Latina said that the city of Aleppo, for which fierce fighting is now going on, is the “last trump card” for Erdogan and his allies.

Assad: Erdogan's last trump is Aleppo


“The Turks and their allies, the Saudis and Qatari, spent most of their resources on the fields of the war in Syria, so Aleppo remains the final asset for them, especially for Erdogan. That's why he is trying so hard to send as many terrorists as possible to the Saudis: their number is estimated at 5 thousand. ”
quotes Assad newspaper Kommersant.

“Over the past two months, Turkey has been throwing militants in the direction of Aleppo so that they can recapture the city, but this does not help. In fact, our army is committing an offensive in the province of Aleppo and the suburbs of its capital to surround the terrorists. After this, either negotiations on the radicals' return to normal life within the framework of reconciliation, or the withdrawal of terrorists from the city, or their defeat, are possible. There are no other options, ”he said.

According to the president, the UN practically does not take part in resolving the Syrian crisis - instead, there is a Russian-American dialogue.

“We know that Russians sincerely and diligently work to defeat the terrorists, while the Americans play their game, trying to use the terrorists, and not defeat them,” he said, adding that for Syria there is no difference, who will win the presidential election in America.

“The lesson we have learned is that no one should rely on any American president. They are all set to war, the only difference is the way. Some send their armies like George W. Bush, while others send mercenaries and henchmen like Barack Obama, ”said Assad.

He also said that he "maintains" good relations with the opposition within Syria.

“Of course, they have their own political agenda and their own views, but we can maintain dialogue both directly and through ballot boxes. However, they cannot be compared with oppositionists based outside Syria, because the word "oppositionist" implies a peace process, rather than supporting terrorists and living abroad without a clue about the "initiatives from below" coming from the Syrian people. Otherwise, such a person is called a traitor, ”the Syrian President concluded.

          Honestly, I am completely confused in all these geopolitical games ...
          Turkey sends terrorists, Russia is establishing relations with her, here Erdogan is going to Moscow, Assad thanks Russia. Clew!!!
          Who gets what, under what conditions ... Just tin! If earlier a couple of moves could still be calculated, roughly predicted, but now nothing! I think the uncertainty will remain until the US election results. And there, Ukraine is moving, either backward or war. Everyone is ready for everything, the military contingents from the West have already been deployed where it should be in the case of a shecher, our bases too. So what are we waiting for. It turns out or pan or disappeared. And for everyone.
          Good day to all!

            Right! Solid Santa Barbara. If only not so many episodes. We are at war with the terrorists helping Assad. Erdogan gives the green light to the passage of these terrorists into Syria (treatment, provision, etc.), while simultaneously opening fire on Syrian territory. And Russia is negotiating with an accomplice of terrorists (Erdogan) and opens air communications with a country hostile to us. In the end, everything seems to be on all sides because of the dough. By and large, we are also accomplices, opening tourism and air connections? !!!

    It is true that ours did not get into the politics of the East. Today Assad is a friend, and tomorrow you know. Another thing is that terrorists, they are terrorists in France, and they must be beaten everywhere.

      Russia makes its policy in the Middle East and with the help of the Middle East - in this case, the country of Syria, in the current situation - the ideal option (not humane, but true)

      You have to hit - that's right. But it can be said with confidence that they (the terrorists) gave an excuse to hook Russia in the Middle East and thereby break the US "game" not only in the BV.

        Does, that's just the methods are far from active. Yes - we support, yes - we are trying to try on, yes - we are establishing contacts, yes - we are placing emphasis on domestic politics. Maybe more, of course, but there is little information about this.

    Turks hurt a lot and didn't spend. They were more than "recaptured" with bloody oil. Yes, and "porked" in the same Aleppo - it was repeatedly pointed to the export of industrial equipment, "on order", from the same Aleppo to Turkey.

    Assad, hold on then they will run back to Turkey. And American presidents can only bomb everything in a row, that's help.

    How difficult it has become in the world. And what awaits us in the near foreseeable future? Around on the one hand there are terrorists, on the other hand mattress covers from the third mattress covers with fag. Tin. How to live that? What future awaits us and our children?

    One way or another, Erdogan’s situation has been shaken, and this should positively affect the course of the war in Syria.

      Erdogan's position now strengthens the most that neither is an accelerated pace. They want to return such purges, general arrests, the death penalty, that our "creative opposition" is probably looking at this case, hugging a portrait of Putin to its chest and crying with joy.

    Assad’s courage is still a little, but Daesh must be burned with a hot iron definitely, now Turkey is busy with itself, Erdogan’s how to stay by the Sultan’s chair himself, now you need to remove the Saudis and Qatar and their money from the game, and without them the Yankees and their coalition themselves quickly reel fishing rods from Syria ...

    The fact that Russia opens air service. And who makes tourists fly to Turkey? Even with the ban they flew in a roundabout way. All inclusive and bread and circuses.

    “The lesson we learned is that no one should bet on any American president. They are all set to war, the only difference is the way. Some send their armies like George W. Bush, while others send mercenaries and proteges like Barack Obama. ”
    More precisely and you will not tell.

    I’ll add from myself that it doesn’t matter who will be the president of the United States.
    The President of the United States has a nominal position, dependent not so much on Congress as on the American oligarchy, whose interests he defends.
