BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – Russia’s Ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, told An-Nour radio station on Monday that Hezbollah and Iran should not withdraw from Syria until all terrorists have been defeated.

Zasypkin denied the rumors regarding the alleged tensions between the Russian military and Hezbollah along the Lebanese-Syrian border.

“The other camp is focusing on this issue to sow doubt and cause problems between the Resistance axis and Russia; and this is not acceptable,” Zasypkin stressed.

“The relation between Russia and the Resistance axis in Syria is a relation of cooperation,” he continued.

The Russian diplomat would then turn his attention to the U.S. presence in Syria, which he claimed is a major obstacle for a final settlement.

“The US presence in Syria is a major cause behind the complications in this country, as well as behind the failure to reach solutions,” he added.

Well, technically, both IRGC and Hezb aren’t necessary any more. Their presence is also indirectly is an obstacle to settle issues as things escalated as soon they came for help and for a good reason : as soon Iran is taking a step anywhere, you’ll have the Saudis pouring huge money to counteract Iran’s actions (and vice versa). What would definitively make Moscow’s day would be : – NATO dropping Turkey, Turkey getting problems getting spare parts for F-16 etc. – Israelis demolishing both IRGC and Hezb – Khamenei being weakened by this military disaster – Thus the Kurds taking… Read more »
