Syrian President al-Assad said that Syria’s agreement about chemical arsenals did not happen because of the US war threats.
The Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in a new statement to a Russian TV channel that the Syrian government in Damascus has decided to put its chemical weapons arsenal under an international supervision because of the Russian proposal and not due of the US war threats and the possibility of a US-led military attack on Syria.
Bashar al-Assad, Syria’s President, further said in his new statement to this Russian TV channel that the Syrian government will hand over its chemical weapons arsenals to an international control of the United Nations (UN) because of Russia’s proposal and to protect the Syrian population if such a move prevents US-led military strikes on Syria. Bashar al-Assad underlined that the Syrian government has not decided to place the chemical weapons arsenals on Syrian soil under an international supervision because of the increased rhetoric of war by the U.S. administration in Washington.
Syria’s President al-Assad also said in his new interview with the state-near Russian TV channel “Rossiya-24” that the US war threads did not influence the decision of the Syrian governance about the chemical weapons arsenals in the Arab country.
There is no more information available up to now about this alleged new interview of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with the Russian state-run TV channel in regards of Moscow’s proposal to place the chemical weapons arsenals on Syrian soil under an international control of the United Nations (UN) and to destroy Syria’s chemical arsenals respectively the chemical substances later.
The Syrian governance of President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus has already agreed to the proposal by Russia.
Thus, the government in Damascus is willing to cede its chemical weapons arsenals and Russia has already submitted a four-stage plan for its proposal to the United States. The Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his American counterpart, US Secretary of State John Kerry, will meet soon in Geneva in order to hold talks about Russia’s proposal and the new four-stage plan about the chemical weapons arsenals on Syrian soil.
Syria’s government is also ready to submit all documents required for joining the chemical weapons ban treaty to the United Nations (UN). According to the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the government in Damascus will submit all required documents to the UN so that Syria is able to join the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC). Further, inspectors of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will be allowed to investigate the chemical arsenals on Syrian soil and are afterwards also allowed to participate in the discussions about how to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles.
So, if it all is correct and really intended by all involved sides, then Syria will join the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and become a chemical weapons-free country. Thereby, Syria becomes a country without chemical weapons stockpiles and is therefore a less threatening country than, for example, Israel with all its chemical weapons stockpiles and nuclear weapons.
However, due to the double standards of certain European governments and the U.S. administration, the chemical weapons arsenals of the Israeli regime in Tel-Aviv are never on the table in international debates. It seems that the United States and certain European governments such as Germany and France assume that the chemical weapons in Israel are harmless and OK.
According to recent statements by Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov in advance of his upcoming meeting with his US counterpart John Kerry, Moscow will not usurp the arrangements about the control and destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons. Sergey Lavrov urged that international experts as well as specialists of the United Nations (UN) and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have to participate in this four-stage plan to get rid of Syria’s chemical stockpiles in order to avoid a US-led war on Syria.
Lavrov added that Russia and the U.S. administration in Washington are already holding a substantive dialogue with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the United Nations about the Syrian issues.
“A newly leaked classified document has revealed the US military knew that foreign-backed militants fighting against the Syrian government had sarin gas.”
I for one am not buying any of this
Putin rides in on a white horse
I think the plan was always to get Assad to give up his wmd’s
Israel wanted this and she got what she wanted.
arabs have always been practice dummies for the Israelis . One reason for this is
that the Israelis must always try and put out the lie about being the poor downtrodden underdog and surrounded by enemies. They play that tune to the hilt and it works.
Arabs always can get lots of military equipment from the Russian military industrial complex which employs many Russians. But the caveat to all of this is , that the Arabs will only get enough stuff to annoying but never enough stuff to win.
And so it goes with round 1.
This thing with Syria is not over. Trust me.
A lot of the land that Syria now occupies , is considered by jews to be their land and they want it back.
Assad is stupid to have agreed on all these nonsense from Russia!!
Assad is stupid to have agreed on all these nonsense from Russia!! The condition should be that Israelis also join the CWC and destroy their CW just as that of Syria and more their Atomic bombs. Why is Syria just doing all these to itself??? Are they afraid of the US? Mind you America cannot win any war alone. So to hell with them!
I don’t think he had much choice in the matter. It was either and or and He chose to try and hang on to his power but in either case his days are numbered. In my honest opinion. His one trump card was the threat of using that terrible stuff. Yet now he has given them away. Not sure if this was a good idea. I think you are right about that quid pro quo with the jews. I will give up my wmd’s when the jews give up their nukes.
Yeah, Bobby, you’re right about Israel hanging on to every possible weapon like a pit bull. If Russia can keep the US and UN a couple of thousand miles away from the removal and destruction of Syria’s CW, I think that the plan has a good chance of working but, if either US or UN gets their mitts into the deal, the failure will be engineered and the missiles will fly. Bet on it. Obama has his orders.
This is too much! A rebel false flag chemical attack forces Assad to turn over his stockpiles while in the meantime arms to rebels continue!
Don’t try to figure it out, Kingsley. Most folks on this forum have logical minds, and are not steeped in homicidal criminality which we leave to the politicians and other such subhuman forms of life.
By the way. Assad claims that his decision had nothing to do with threats of the United States. Yeh sure pal. Talk to the hand. The Assad family business which is what Syria now is and has been for a long time , stood to lose a lot of money damages due to the rain of tomahawk missiles . Putin, his buddy (oh Yeh) came to the rescue just in time and Assad, worried about the family assets was more than willing to take the bait and gain this way out of the hole he had dug himself in. Something smells in all of this. I guess I have grown cynical in my old age. But the moral to the story is this. It ain’t over till its over. And it ain’t over yet. That is for sure. Just look at a map of greater Israsel sometimes. Modern day jews think that the Biblical promises made to Abraham , equate to them. They use the Bible to justify their demands. As anyone can see by looking at a map of greater Israel, you can see that Abraham was promised a good chunk of what is now could be called Arabia. So Arabs are on jewish land and they want it back. Its part of the new world order that is coming now , fast, and at a trot. Matter of fact, the largest embassy in the world, the United States embassy in Iraq , sits on the Euphrates River, which would be the eastern boundary of the land called greater Israel or Eretz Israel as it is called. Was this embassy built there by accident? I think not. The jews do not have a large enough army to accomplish their goals. So they use the idiotic United States to do it for them. All the while masquerading as God’s chosen people to fool the Christian zionist and other fools. Just part of the overall dog and pony show that has been going on now for years and nobody cares and nobody wants to talk about it . Sign of the times I am afraid.
Hi, Bill. whatever the reasons for President Assad’s agreement to the CW deal, it works out a lot better for everyone except Israel, which assumes an awful lot, given the positive aspects of the promise to Abraham. Israel has also, conveniently, forgotten what has happened to Israel when it turns its back on God. It’s never been pretty.
Personally, if it came to the point where the metal meats the meat, Obama would drop Israel like a piece of rotten fruit, but that’s just a suspicion, given his great love for Muslim Brotherhood and other forms of jihadi rats. According to scripture, the jews are God’s chosen people and always have been, but the jews pay no attention to the times that God, as a loving father, has chastised the jews with varying degrees of severity. Personally, I used to be a fan of Israel until USS Liberty was sunk by the Israelis, at which point I lost all concern for the tribulations of the Israelis. In my opinion, the only useful function of Israel is to disrupt the plan for a caliphate running from the Chinese border to the Black sea east and west, and from Kazakhstan to the Indian Ocean north and south, plus North Africa. Israel puts the cork in that bottle. For now. If Israel is counting on the US to pull its chestnuts out of the fire and expand the current Israel to its greatest historic extent, well, Israel is leaning on a weak stick. In my opinion, of course.
