BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – James Jeffrey, the U.S. special envoy to Syria, commented on the visit of the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to Damascus on Monday, and his meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“If Iran were truly concerned about the health & safety of the Syrian ppl, it would support the UN-led political process under UNSCR2254 and withdraw IRGC, Hizballah, & other terrorist forces under its command from the entirety of #Syria,” the tweet read.

In the statement, Jeffrey called for the necessity “of Iran adopting a political solution instead of a military victory” and that Iran’s only contributions to Syria were violence and instability.

“The United States is the largest donor of humanitarian aid to the Syrian people, providing more than $10.6 billion in aid across Syria and the region since the start of the crisis, and still providing humanitarian assistance to prevent the outbreak of the coronavirus,” he said in the statement,” he added.

The Syria and U.S. currently have no diplomatic relations, but other countries like the Czech Republic and Russia act intermediaries between the two nations.

Jeffry is talking shït and he knows it. The real US goal is obtaining Syria’s neutrality just like they obtained China’s neutrality in the Cold War through putting pressure in Vietnam and so they put pressure on Syria with this goal. If Assad opts to go this way, just as Pompeo said in Feb 2019, USA is ready to back Assad’s presidency… Thus, the biggest problem is probably building trust, and such stances by Jeffry or others are not the way to go… US have really a problem to understand the mindset in the region. They’d need to take serious… Read more »

My strong advise to Iran Government, Iran IRGC, and Iran Quds Force : *** As a 1ST STEP / 1ST PHASE, put a bounty of USD $10 million on the head of Pigland zionist-mafia douchebag James Jeffrey, IMMEDIATELY. Kill this conniving MOFO and send out a message. *** Enough is enough already. The zionist-mafia Pigland military’s ILLEGAL presence in Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan must be utterly destroyed, NO, EXTERMINATED WHOLESALE, without further ado or mercy or warning … this cancer must be removed quickly using whatever means and manpower necessary, no matter what the cost and no matter what… Read more »

Remember the Hague Convention says that using foreign militia to attack is like doing a direct attack, in other terms, US have shown non-understandable restraint towards Iran : Carter should have done an all out war as soon as Khomeni’s roaches invaded the US embassy. Pest control should have been done as soon as 1979!

Once terrorism-sponsoring regimes like Iran, Qatar, Porkistan and Turkish ones are gone, your militias of terrorists will soon disappear.

, Iran and others have so far shown restraint. The US have been using foreign militia to attack – which is like doing a direct attack.

Did the envoy offer to remove every US an Nato soldier from all Syrian territory if Iran and Hezbollah removed theirs? Was there any kind of counteroffer demanding this?

Yep! Still talking out your a*s Jeffries.
You are no representative of U.S. in Syria.
Did you present them with papers?
Did they accept them ?
As a U.S. taxpayer I want to see the bill.

Is this shoe-scrapping, this cretin, really part of America’s diplomatic corp, is this the best they can come up with?. Does he really believe that everyone else is a bumbling illiterate fool like himself. We all know American relationship with ISIS, their theft of Syrian oil, their carpet bombing of Raqqa, until nothing moved but cockroaches, we know their worldwide infamous reputation for bringing their kind of democracy….27 million innocent dead and 50 million mutilated since this new century began. America will eventually slither home, tail between its legs, militarily, financially and morally bankrupt….and good riddance, if anyone needed advice,… Read more »
