‘Tying resolution of Syria crisis to Assad’s future, unacceptable’

‘Tying resolution of Syria crisis to Assad’s future, unacceptable’

The UN Chief, Ban Ki Moon, has noted that conditioning the resolution of Syrian crisis to the future of the incumbent Syrian President, Bashar Assad, is unacceptable. Moreover, throughout the Vienna-2 meeting, the participants forthrightly noted that the people of Syria are the main decision makers about their own fate. Within the Vienna-2 meeting, the negotiations aimed to find a political solution to the Syrian crisis, and the parties to these negotiations put emphasis on the campaign against terrorism in that war-torn country.

 

The West led by the US, since the break out of war in Syria, intended to topple the Syrian President, Bashar Assad, and to tie the Syrian crisis to him stepping down from power, in a bid to attain its goals. One of the goals pursued by the West was the transition of power from Bashar Assad to a new government, which would be a US client regime and which would ally with the Zionist regime of Israel. Syria, which for decades has been at the frontline of the resistance movement and struggle against the illegal Zionist entity, prevented the implementation of US Great Middle East plot, right from the very beginning.

Hence, on August 2011; six months after the onset of the civil war in Syria, the US president, Barack Obama, unequivocally urged Assad’s dismissal. However, currently, the US not only seeks the collapse of Assad administration, but also warns about the consequences of his measures.

The US and the West, upon instigating civil war in Syria and equipping Takfiri and terrorist currents, intended to replace Assad with their considered choice. However, the West led by the US, can no longer contain the actions of the operatives of terrorist outfit, dubbed ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) and is concerned over the possibility of a worsening situation upon the replacement of the incumbent Syrian President, Bashar Assad.

Under these circumstances, the French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, says that the West doesn’t want the pillars of the Syrian government to collapse, leading to a situation similar to the status quo in Iraq.

On this basis, the foreign opponents of the popular Syrian President, Bashar Assad, have been forced to even ostensibly grant priority to the battle against ISIL terrorist outfit. Therefore, throughout the recent meetings on Syria, some states have spoken of the possibility of the continued presence of Bashar Assad at his post for several months after the commencement of transition phase.

The UN chief has put emphasis on the right of Syrians to take their destiny into their own hands, and has urged for the establishment of ceasefire across all regions of Syria, as fast as possible. He points out that the immediate establishment of truce in this war-ravaged country assists the resolution of Syrian crisis through political channels, and expedites the pace of humanitarian assistance to millions of Syrians.
