US National Security Advisor John Bolton claimed that Washington has an opportunity in terms of negotiations as Russia is “stuck” in Syria.

US President Donald Trump’s national security adviser warned Wednesday that Washington will respond “very strongly” if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons in an offensive to retake Idlib province.

“Just to be clear, regime change in Iran is not American policy. But what we want is massive change in the regime’s behavior,” he said.

In an interview US national security adviser John Bolton has claimed that Russia was “stuck” and looking for others to fund Syria’s post-war reconstruction, which, according to the adviser, gives Washington an opportunity to press Iranian forces to quit the war-torn country.

“The Russians are stuck there at the moment,” Bolton told Reuters during an interview while on a visit to Israel.

Bolton also said that the United States could consider cooperation with other countries in Syria, but only if only all Iranian forces are withdrawn from the country.

“We’re going see what we and others can agree in terms of resolving the conflict in Syria. But the one prerequisite there is the withdrawal of all Iranian forces back to Iran,” National Security Advisor said during the interview.

Bolton is going to meet his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev in Geneva on Thursday.A week earlier, John Bolton claimed in an interview with ABC that Russia, Israel and the United States all want Iranian-backed forces removed from Syria. The Kremlin hasn’t yet confirmed this information.

Washington, as well as Israel, have been claiming that Iranian troops are present in Syria, however, Tehran has denied the claims, emphasizing that the country’s presence in the Arab Republic is entirely limited to military advisors.

Hehe, I think it’s more subtle than this… Considering comments I read here, which are emotional and sometimes nothing else than blind anti-Americanism : at my level, I’m anti-imperialism, not anti-Yankee and I’m ALSO against the imperialism of OTHERS, e.g. Turkey, China, Iran, no matter! Especially since they’re even worst than the Yanks… Ask the Kurds or the Tibetans… In fact, I’m far closer to the Putin reasoning than many may think, thus he doesn’t openly expresses his views, and it couldn’t work would he. The end goal is stabilising the region and have all the terrorism-funding powerhouses to stop… Read more »

Daeshbag where do you get your info from, its steeped in blind prejudice …bizarre. Particularly your hatefilled views on Iran. Its Israel that has made the two state solution almost impossible by appropriating more and more Palestinian land and building illegal settlements , carving up the West Bank. Both Hamas and Abbas wanted a two state solution and an independent Palestine. A one state solution is not only feasible its almost inevitable. Whats not feasible is to maintain an Apartheid state. Global pressure on Israel is growing daily, with BDS for example and many governments including South Africa , Ireland,… Read more »

Dear Father, Bolton is an evil vile sinister man – who NEVER should have been selected for his present position. There is no greater warmonger in the U.S. than this monster. If he is planning on false ops in collaboration with Israel or any terrorist group in Syria – to justify strong U.S. attack on pro-Assad forces, for the sake of the Syrian people – remove him quickly from office – and also remove warmongers Mattis and Pompeo. Protect Syria by your great power and might, in Jesus’ name. Amen

By essence, you can’t be a Christian without being a Zionist.

¨Christianity is Judaism for the Goys.¨ Good one, I will remember that.
Obviously you don’t have much contact with Christians, because otherwise you would have known that almost every Christian would be very offended by that. It says enough about you. (and not so much by that prayer below).
How is your investigation in the Rothschild’s family’s capital going?
New revelations to be expected?
Say: Reuters is not a Rothschild/Likud/Zionists propaganda outlet.

Padgett : stop trying to pose as a Christian since you have zero clue about Christian philosophy. Any Christian would feel totally insulted by your “prayer”. Nothing to see with Bolton or the Syrian case, you just have a mindset that is inadmissible for ANY Christian sect, even the most unbearable ones would reject you since such kind of “prayer” is absolutely insulting towards both the Fater and the Son. Moreover, they’re not taking any sort of action of any kind and any Christian knows that for some action, he’d need to pray the 3rd part of the Trinity and… Read more »

With the Russian and Syrian air forces both precision bombing foreign terrorists with the help of ground and satellite intelligence, the “White Helmets” will once again come up with a photo-shopped picture of an orphanage allegedly being attacked with chemical weapons and blaming the Syrian Government. If the “White Helmets” were true humanitarian Syrians helping out the poor, injured and dying civilians they wouldn’t want to be lifted out from areas taken over by the Syrian Government but be willing to provide a full account of their charitable work undertaken over the last 3-4 years in line with similar records… Read more »

They told the same during Dara operation and nothing happened!..last US attacks was a failure as near 80% of its missile were intercepted!..of course they dont risk aircraft flying over Damascus…because F-22 could find the same fate as F-117 in Serbia…

“.last US attacks was a failure as near 80% of its missile were intercepted!” => Not so much and… actually, they deliberately helped the interception (Russians have been given the waypoints and Cruises flew at pretty high altitude while normally flying ultra low) and deliberately stroke already heavily damaged buildings (I’ve seen before/after pictures) and… Yanks have shïtloads of Tomahawks being past retirement date being replaced by new models, so do not assume it would fail would they be more ‘serious’… Don’t you understand that there are some collusions between ‘big boys’? This is intended to rise the sales of… Read more »

because during the past 35 years no Israeli jet flew over Syria…they launched airstrike from israel or lebanon airspace…that F-16 flew over Syria near Swayda on its way to T-4 Homs…and was shot down!….all attacks in Syria( included Shayrat and Damascus) have been with long range air to ground missile or cruise missile from ships to avoid be shot down!..

To late bro, “our American forces” been used by Israel and oil corporations as the mercenary force long before Syria. The whole US involvement in wars in Iraq and Syria – to protect Israel’s interests and satisfy their ambitions. Add billions taxpayer $ each year. Israel smartly invest part of it to buy US politicians who in turn keep voting for the “assistance” to continue and grow… Plus there is Military Industrial Complex which gets more $ when weapons used, they also invest heavily into politicians, that is how you get likes of McCain and Bolton 🙁 Terms limit for… Read more »

7 billion people living in the World – which is controlled by a few million. Which means 7 billion apathetic suckers. Probably a couple of billion who live in poverty and are helpless and know nothing about who controls their desperate lives – but the rest of us who allow the ongoing genocide committed by the US Israel Saudi Arabia – their ruination of people’s lives are culpable.The US is a fading declining Empire – at her most dangerous – when she knows that her strangulation has weakened. What has she got left – nukes. A nuclear weapon will be… Read more »
