Syrian Foreign Minister: Damascus accepts Russian proposal about chemical weapons.
According to new statements by Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem (al-Moallem), the Syrian governance in Damascus has agreed to cede its chemical weapons stockpiles to an international supervision of the United Nations (UN). Thus, after the statements and proposal from yesterday by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and in advance by US Secretary of State John Kerry, the Syrian government has accepted the proposal about the chemical weapons today.
The Syrian Foreign Minister al-Muallem (al-Moallem) said in his new statements that the government in Damascus agrees to Russia’s proposal and it will hand its chemical weapons arsenal over to an international supervision in a bid to prevent a possible US-led military strike on Syria.
Walid al-Muallem, Syria’s Foreign Minister, who has been in Moscow yesterday, said in his new remarks that the Syrian side “held a round of very fruitful negotiations with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and he put forward an initiative regarding chemical weapons.” The proposal by Moscow was afterwards already accepted by the Syrian government at the evening, said the Syrian Foreign Minister in his new statements.
According to the words by the Foreign Minister of Syria, this new agreement about the chemical arsenals in Syria is designed to “pull the rug from under the feet of American aggression” and the quick acceptance at the Syrian government shows its readiness for negotiations and to find a political solution for the conflict in Syria and the US threats about a war on Damascus.
Therefore, although it remains to be seen when it will happen, the Syrian government will put the chemical weapons stockpiles in the Arab counter under an international supervision of the United Nations (UN) and has also allowed the further destruction of its chemical weapons and substances. Of course, the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons will not happen in a near future.
Such a process will last – perhaps some years, while it remains to be seen how the international community will carry out the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons. Under consideration of the needed efforts and time, a good idea would be to establish an installation in the Syrian Desert in order to destroy the chemical substances and CWs directly on Syrian soil.
So or so, the agreement by the Syrian government on the Russian-American proposal to put their chemical weapons under international control in order to avoid an immediate US-led attack on their country should now prevent such a military strike by Washington against Damascus. However, there is still a small room for scepticism. One might say that Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad has accepted the indirect offer by US President Barack Obama over the mediator Russia.
Meanwhile, it is already known that China, Britain, Iran and even the hypocritical and dangerous Arab League (AL) supports the Russian plan to place the chemical stocks of Syria under an international supervision for an (eventual) destruction.
The Secretary General of the Arab League, Nabil al-Arabi, confirmed today that the Arab League (AL) backs the Russian proposal towards Syria. Now, that the Syrian government has accepted this proposal about its chemical stockpiles, one might think this world has become a safer world again. It just remains to be seen, as stated. One has to regard it all still somewhat sceptically.
At least, when the Arab League (AL) supports this Russian proposal about the Syrian chemical weapons, then it really sounds like the supporters of a war on Syria have backtracked a little bit. We will see.
Obama’s puppet masters have already ordered him to figure a way to just go ahead and kill everything that moves in Syria and flatten anything that doesn’t. Kerry already has given us the heads up on this.
Yes ketchup king ( Kerry ) and France as mentioned if President Assad will stall.. or in the future suddenly farts the wrong way.. They will use force.. Its clear they really want to attack syria.. they are now trying hard and they are very desperate to sell their war.. but this time President Assad won.. Obama is now the bitch of Putin and Bashar. Syria has proven to the world they will cooperate.
Hi, Air, Welcome. I don’t really think that President Assad has to actually either stall or fart, but can be presented as HAVING stalled or farted. The early morning lamestream news would probably go something like this: The CIA reported that it had hard intelligence that President Bashar al Assad farted at 1201 this morning. At 1202 US and French naval assets salvoed surface to air missiles at Syrian government controlled targets. The entire launch of two thousand and sixty-five missiles took only 17 minutes, 25 seconds. We do, unfortunately, anticipate up to a half dozen citizens as collateral damage. Oops! Sorry ’bout that.’
Obama has his orders, and will slither out from any restrictions placed upon him by anybody, and in my opinion, will attack; but why not? he risks nothing, he’s already a lame duck, and besides, he hasn’t gotten to watch in real time thousands of civilians being blown into mulch since Libya. His glands are aching for slaughter, in my opinion.
God bless syria
Hi, Troy. If God holds his sheltering hand over Syria, I’d look at that as blessing enough, for now. God, if he wishes to do so, could bless every nation by expunging the evil men and women in power here, in the US.
As usual Russia stabs a supposed friend in the back. Instead of providing military support, Russia forces Syria to disarm. The Russian “help” looks like this: you give up your strategic weapons under Russian pressure and USA won’t attack you this time (maybe even for a few more months). You are left defenseless, but still Russia claims it was help. Russia won’t deliver you the weapons you bought, because it is afraid for security of your greatest enemy Israel…and still it’s considered “help”..
That’s what dealing with Russia looks like.
Putin is a traitor.. Or he was never a friend.
Hi, Wojtek. Unless there is something going on here that we don’t know about, Syria isn’t ‘giving up strategic weapons’, of which it apparently has none. Chemical weapons are, basically, a tactical weapon, and an unreliable one at that, since they are equally capable of killing the user and the targeted group, and are non discriminatory. It’s perhaps feasible to put forward the notion that President Assad would be delighted to be rid of the cursed things. The problem is possible UN involvement, since the UN is hideously corrupt, and liable to commit any crime which it thinks it can get away with. Russia does have the facilities with which to decommission chemical weapons, but Russia is a long way off. I don’t know if there is any such thing as a portable decommissioning facility or, if there is, if Russia has one which could be transported to Syria. Since there are, reportedly, fifty CW storage sites in Syria, the next problem would be site security. I don’t even know if it’s possible to add a chemical, or combination of chemicals, which would render the CW inert, but there probably is. I very much doubt that Russia will leave Syria in the lurch, but we’ll just have to wait and see on that.
Nope. Chemical weapons can be used both strategically and tactically. Just like nukes.
Syria’s chemical weapons were supposed to be a threat to Israel cities in case of a nuclear attack. They can do great damage and disruption in Israel. A strategic attack with chemical weapons can paralyze a small country.
New news arrived here ( Netherlands )
Syrian Airforce attacked Hospital ,eleven death and many wounded
Another bullshit story i think ( and 95% of the people on forums here )
a good story for Obama , just what he wants
Netherlands? I wouldn’t put an any stock in this yarn at all, the caveat being that jihadi rats may have taken over the hospital and left no living Syrian citizens inside. Hospitals are, typically, taller than surrounding structures, and make good observation points; it’s easier to replace a hospital than it is experienced soldiers who would be stuck with the task of clearing the building room by room. If the structure was in enemy hands, I’d bomb it, too.
fuck mr. obama i dont know why all governors from usa seems rats, just they want the natural resources from another countries to solve their own economic shortcoming
In other reports they talk about a “field hospital” which may just be a hideout of the thugs stuffed with medical supplies they received through Turkey. There are so many ways to bend the truth…
As for the CW, I totally agree with Arklight that it actually is a blessing to the government to have a chance to get rid of this burden.
The disposal is certainly a challenge. I don’t know of any feasable facility in Syria, i.e. a high temperature, sealed incinerator or something similar.
As for the UN participation, I am more confident than Ark. In Iraq they basically did a good job. It was the US who fabricated the lies and fake evidence. Iraq’s CWs were deposed long before those accusations by America. Credit goes to UN in that respect.
The problem in Iraq was also that the US tbought they could gain intelligence on Saddams every little site and secret by trying to incorporate CW checks at places such as Saddams palaces and sites which, logically and militarily, would have never been used as CW sites anyway. Then the US always tries to get their spooks into the UN teams in various ways. We know that the US bullies the UN and the world later blames any disaster on the UN, not the real culprit – the US…. The UN is corrupt to some point, true, but there is a difference between corruption in terms of making money through local tenders around the world and, corruption that influences policy making. I would not call that corruption but rather bullying by the US, UK and Co.
The reason why countries like Syria have lost confidence in the impartialty of the UN is simply the constant meddling of the US in UN affairs. With a toothless diplomat as Ban Ki Moon is, the UN has a hard time to gain more independence….
