シリア情勢 25 シリア大統領がトルコの役割は最悪と非難

※ France considers sending a team of Special Operations troops to help fight the Islamic State terrorists in Syria, a Paris-based newspaper wrote Thursday, citing a source at the country’s defense ministry.

※ Almost 250 people have returned to France from Syria and Iraq where they fought alongside Islamist militants, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Thursday.

PARIS (Sputnik) − "According to our data, 966 people went to do jihad in Syria or Iraq. Of these, 142 people are dead and 247 people have returned to France," Valls said speaking at a session of the French National Assembly (lower house of parliament)

※ If French President Francois Hollande intends to effectively lead an international coalition against ISIL, involving Russia and the United States, he would have to be ready to make some political concessions, the French daily Le Temps reported.

On Monday, Hollande called for a broad coalition including the United States and Russia to tackle ISIL which had claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks on Friday. The following day, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia and France's navies must develop a joint plan of action for their operations in Syria.

Hollande is scheduled to travel to Moscow on November 26 to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin during which the two leaders would negotiate an international anti-terrorism operation in Syria. Prior to meeting with Putin, the French President would also visit the United States to meet with Barack Obama.

First things first, the French government should be ready to share intelligence with both the Russians and the Americans to coordinate their military actions. It's going to be tough, because right now Russian, US and French planes prefer not to come close to each other, Le Temps said.

Secondly, in order to get meaningful support from Russia, Hollande will have to be ready to compromise on certain issues, namely the future of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is a Russian ally.

It would be tough considering that some of his potential allies, such as the United States and the countries of the Persian Gulf, dream of overthrowing the government of al-Assad.

However, the French Foreign Ministry is confident that it would be able to find a compromise and unite all different states in the fight against ISIL.

Saudi Arabia is trying to impose on Syria its own plan for the transitional government, Randa Kassis, leader of the Movement for a Pluralistic Society, said Thursday.

According to her, currently there are four lists of potential candidates to the Syrian opposition delegation for talks with the Syrian government.

"There are four lists, including one proposed by Russia, one proposed by Egypt, one by Saudi Arabia, and one by the US. Saudi Arabia did not submit its proposals, but it gave the names of the people it wants to be in the new government, including representatives of both the current authorities and opposition," Kassis said at a press conference hosted by Rossiya Segodnya information agency in Moscow.

"Of course, Saudi Arabia is a significant player, but the Syrian people cannot let any other country – like Saudi Arabia – impose on us the entire cabinet," she underscored.

※ Syrian President Bashar Assad believes that by being passively supporting the al-Nusra Front and Islamic State terrorist groups, Turkey is playing a most destructive role in the Syrian crisis.

“Turkey is playing a most negative role in our crisis. That’s related directly to [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan himself and [Prime Minister Ahmet] Davutoglu, because they both reflect the real ideology that they carry in their hearts, which is the Muslim Brotherhood ideology,” Assad said in an interview with the French newsmagazine Valeurs Actuelles on Thursday.

The Syrian leader emphasized that, compared to Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Ankara was playing the most dangerous role in general, by giving all possible assistance to the terrorists.
“Some countries support al-Nusra Front, which is al-Qaeda, some other countries support ISIL, while Turkey supports both and other groups at the same time. They support them with, human resources. They support them with money, logistics, armaments, surveillance, information, and even the maneuvers of their military through their borders during the fights in Syria."

"Even the money that’s being collected from the rest of the world passes through Turkey, and the oil that ISIL sells is through Turkey, so Turkey is playing the worst part of our crisis,” Assad was quoted as saying by the Syrian news agency SANA.

※ The political course by German Chancellor Angela Merkel has long been a pain for the French public and political establishment. The recent terrorist attacks in Paris have reminded of how strong German control over the French budget has grown.

Over the recent decades, France has taken a backseat to Germany in the European Union, but the crisis of the German model of ruling Europe – especially after the Paris attacks – could fuel struggle for dominance in the bloc, journalist James Poulos wrote.

"The French government has signaled that, on matters both economic and political, it will no longer be content with taking a backseat to Germany in the European Union. France has declared the Islamic State an outright enemy; more quietly, it has started treating German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a new type of adversary," he wrote.
