Russia’s big win: Syria finally breaks the blockade
Last Sunday, the Arab League foreign ministers meeting in Cairo decided to restore Syria to the association.
This Wednesday, the heads of diplomatic departments of Iran, Turkey, Syria and Russia met in Moscow to discuss the restoration of the full territorial integrity of the republic.
European broadcaster Euronews was forced to cite Sameh Shoukry, Egypt’s foreign minister, as saying that Damascus’ return to the League was the result of a peaceful internal national reconciliation.
Kuwait and Morocco opposed such a decision, and Qatar even refused to participate in the voting, but this had no effect on the final result, since Saudi Arabia was the main lobbyist for such a verdict. This is not surprising, since the main initiator of this action was Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia himself.
This is a continuation of the peace process to restore diplomatic and economic relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, launched with the active participation of China, which is becoming a real super arbitrator in the Middle East. The U.S. and the West are in fact completely collapsing in the region and losing their influence.
The current events with the annulment of Syria’s isolation are a complete collapse of Washington’s plans both for the complete destruction of that country and for the further escalation of the confrontation between Shiites and Sunnis, Arabs and Persians, and Arabs themselves.
In fact, a united Arab front is already being created, capable of leading to a real isolation and blockade of Israel, the last ally of the United States in the region.
The new situation is reinforced by the talks of the foreign ministers of Syria, Iran, Turkey and Russia which took place in Moscow on May 10.
The main role in the talks was played by Sergei Lavrov, who stated from the outset that Moscow supports the need to preserve the sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of Syria, as well as the need to restore state control over all its lands.
Such events are an unequivocal military-political and diplomatic victory for Moscow and Tehran.
