BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria said this week that the U.S. military presence east of the Euphrates has become a major reason for the obstruction dialogue between the warring parties in Syria.

In a statement, the center affiliated with the Russian Ministry of Defense said that the situation in the areas outside the control of the Syrian authorities in Deir Ezzor is getting worse.

Russia and Syria are ready to “take all necessary measures to settle the situation east of the Euphrates and resume the national dialogue,” the statement said.

The center’s statement also touched on the situation in Idlib, stressing that Russia “reserves the right to respond to militants in the event that their activities constitute a threat to areas near the de-escalation zone in Idlib.”

Russia and the United States have traded accusations of destabilizing Syria or prolonging the war over the years, prompting both sides to engage in a mini Cold War-like conflict in the eastern part of the country.

I would say its the opposite – a kind of. Turks invaded and as expected the SDFs and Assads still are not friends, because The Russians let Assads fight. USA could not have done it better. USA might be laughing a bit. Russia obviously has no solutions and tricks for the future. I dont think Russia should blame USA for the western part. The Jihadist mainly grown by Assads are many and dont retreat. Where should they go. My wn solutions for rthe areas are laughed at.

Actually, Russians are partly right about this. USA are working at pushing Assad into deciding something that, in his seat, I’d had decided as soon as I’d have came to power in Y2K as I’d had been only interested in Syria’s prosperity and stability, therefore, I’d had pronounced Syria’s neutrality, actually, with my actions, I would even end with the Nobel Prize for Peace by definitively solving the Palestinian Gordian knot. Cash would flow into Syria, I’d make it the Switzerland of the Levant, except for those opposing the project : There are Syrian Christians with pig farms, pigs eat… Read more »
