U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry intends to make Russia the “last proposal” on Syria from the current us administration in the framework of the visit on July 14-15. According to The Washington post, during scheduled talks with President Vladimir Putin, the head of American diplomacy will offer to create a joint center for the exchange of information and coordination of American and Russian operations in Syria. Would approve of such an idea Moscow?
As it became known American newspaper, Kerry’s proposal is to organize “Joint implementation group” with the participation of Russia, which Moscow and Washington will be able to share intelligence and technical information, as well as to synchronize their operations against the “Islamic state” (IG, a group banned in Russia and declared a terrorist). On the idea of the state Department, the two sides must also agree on where the position of Jabhat al-Nusra (terrorist group is banned in Russia) in order to reduce the number of random attacks on the moderate opposition in Syria, which joined the ceasefire established in February. The fate of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad may be discussed during the visit Kerry will not: according to The New York Times, the Secretary of state does not intend to offer too much.
“To fight ISIS coordination of the two powers is fundamentally important, – said the “MK” Professor, Department of history, political science and law in RSUH Kosach Grigorii. On the other hand, the alarming Lavrov’s statement, which he made in Baku that the UN special envoy for Syria de Mistura behaves inappropriately: requires the U.S. and Russia have agreed before to announce the opening of the next round of Syrian talks. Lavrov in this regard, said that at the negotiations not with anyone, because, as he put it, the Higher negotiating Committee (the body that represents the inter-Syrian negotiations the moderate Pro-Western opposition, “MK”) is irreconcilable and is waiting for only one thing – when Assad leaves – and helps ensure that the Assad leave as quickly as possible from his post. From this I draw a simple conclusion: the Kerry proposal will cause Russia’s objections, because the essence of the proposal is to meet the interests of the Higher negotiating Committee”.
“On the other hand, this sentence has a great meaning: to achieve victory over ISIS without coordination of the two great powers is not possible, – says Gregory Kosach – but in the form in which Kerry will present its proposal, Russia will be able to see the damage of their policies in this region.”
