Russia reminded the western countries that the Syrian presidential election is an internal matter for the Syrian people and in total compliance with the constitution of 2012 and relevant laws; this was the Russian response to statements made by western officials in attempts to delegitimize the presidential election in Syria set for the 26th of this month, May.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement: Moscow is closely following the preparations for the Syrian presidential elections scheduled for next May 26, stressing that it represents an internal affair and fully complies with the requirements of the constitution adopted in 2012 and local laws, and these measures do not contradict in any way with UN Security Council Resolution 2254 and other International decisions.
The ministry’s statement stressed that ‘no one has the right to dictate to the Syrians the timing and conditions that must be created to choose a president for their state.’
NATO countries and some of their stooges continued their blatant interference in Syria’s internal affairs by a barrage of statements criticizing the upcoming Syrian presidential election vowing not to recognize its outcome, their recognition is not required anyway, their main criticism is based on reasons such as ‘Syrian refugees abroad are not participating in the election’ which itself is because of their pressure over host countries not to allow the refugees to return to their homes, and ‘the election as per the constitution excludes candidates who did not spend the last 10 years inside Syria’ which means that the opposition figures they spent millions of Dollars and Euros of their people’s tax money will not get a chance to run for the top executive job in Syria as they were hoping.
This blatant political interference in Syria’s affairs by the same countries who waged the decade-long war of terror and war of attrition against the Syrian people comes after their other means failed to effect a regime change in the targeted country, this is frustrating NATO decision makers for multiple reasons the main reason of them is failing to take control of Syria means the utter failure of the US’s PNAC project and the aim to dominate the world by blocking West Asia and cornering China, Russia, and in the process Iran.
The US’s deep state or the actual rulers and decision-making junta in the United States have been working hard for over 24 years on the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), despite its suspension in the year 2006 after they realized the failure of Israel to win over Hezb Allah in Lebanon, they resumed the project with higher goals through the so-called Arab Spring, the latter came after the leaders of Saudi, Qatar, and Israel vowed to that junta they can achieve the goals of the project by destabilizing the targeted countries from within, mainly Iran then Syria, instead of direct military invasions like the wars against Iraq, Afghanistan, and Lebanon.
Although the second phase dubbed ‘Foreign Policy Initiative’ was already dissolved in the year 2017, the US’s junta cannot afford to declare a second defeat and continues to bet on miracles to achieve their goals, now shifting their last powers against China and Russia leaving West Asia and Iran.
Russian decision-makers have the picture very clear and it became clearer in the US-led war of terror against Syria, the same tactics used by the NATO countries against the Levant were supposed to be used against Russia, whether by using anti-Islamic radical Jihadists brainwashed by the Saudi-funded Wahhabi cult, or the Qatari-funded Muslim Brotherhood cult spearheaded by the terrorists in suits of the AKP party ruling Turkey under the madman Erdogan.
The statement by the Russian Ministry of Affairs fell short of reminding the NATO countries interfering in Syria’s presidential election of their own hysterical reactions to their own fabrications of alleged Russian intervention in their own elections.
