Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that his Russian and Turkish counterparts have found a common cause in settling the Syrian war.

“The joint statement stipulates Iran, Russia and Turkey’s obligations with regard to their assistance in settling the conflict in Syria,” he said.

“We’re moving forward very seriously, logically and consistently. Also, humanitarian aid will be provided and a political solution will be searched for, ensuring respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of Syria while the emphasis will be on the political solution as the final settlement of the Syrian issue,” he said.

“In our statement today we say that the three countries pledge to fight together against the Islamic State (ISIS), Jabhat al-Nusra and the affiliated organizations,” Zarif said.

“We also pledged to separate these groups from other forces in Syria,” he said. “This is the first, very important and very necessary step towards creating conditions for a permanent, lasting ceasefire in Syria.”

“We hope that Iran, Russia and Turkey’s joint efforts will help end the predicaments that the Syrian people have been facing as well as eliminate the terrorist threat,” the Iranian foreign minister stressed. “We will help create a better future for the people of Syria and the entire region.”

Or the Syrian minister refuses?
Nevertheless, the thing is to push Gollum into stopping ressupplying takfiris in weapons, stopping the bordercrossing, etc, in other terms : suffocating this scum. Now, Erdogan is facing serious issues. He played very very very stupid games and it’s backfiring from all sides.

What a clown show?

So, the prestigious Russian Foreign Minister can only cobble together a coalition with ministers of third rate nations whose objectives and agendas are diametrically opposed? How many ways can this fail?

Iran, maaaybe.

But, Turkey? Europe can’t kick them to the curb fast enough. What the h**l do they offer? The only thing I can see is an assurance (that won’t be honored) that they won’t (continue to) exacerbate the situation. Keeping enemies closer, maybe?

Please, get a Chinese minister to attend, at least! Make it a SCO initiative.
