Israeli Defense Minister Slams Russia, Iran and Turkey for Shaping Syria's Future Alone

Clearly if Russia, Iran and Turkey, in open communication with Syria, are trying to settle the Syrian situation they aren't 'shaping Syria's Future alone"

Times of Israel 
 As leaders of the three nations issue joint statement, Avigdor Liberman says it's first time since World War II that issue of such weight is being determined without UN role.
As you will read it's less about UN input and more about US participation!

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman

I will post the joint statement after this article. 

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Wednesday criticized the leaders of Russia, Turkey, and Iran for meeting on the future of Syria without United Nations permission.
Also noting the absence of any US representative, Liberman told Army Radio that this was the first time such a scenario had played out since World War ll. 

“This is the first time since the Second World War that a meeting like this was held without the approval of the UN. They are determining Syria’s future without any American representative,” he said. 

US? UN? Same/same. 

Obviously Avigdor Liberman got the message in the image unaccompanied by any words.
Still noting the lack of coverage from the 5 eyes alt media sites. Why's that?
Yesterday's Post : Astana Three In Turkey- Affirm Support for Syria's Sovereignty


No opening remarks necessary because the locked hands imagery is worth a thousand words. The image was posed for and done intentionally. 
 

It is complete nonsense that Trump was even considering pulling US troops out of Syria- Rubbish. Garbage. Baloney

" The U.S. commanders and troops who have been fighting ISIS in Syria got a new message from their commander in chief: their mission will continue indefinitely. President Donald Trump decided to keep the fight going"

The White House sought to end speculation that a total withdrawal was in the works after Trump — seemingly off-script — said last Thursday that the U.S. troops in Syria would be coming home 


I say Trump was ON SCRIPT
100 percent on script!

 “The fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria is far from over,” said the Middle East Institute’s Charles Lister, senior fellow and director of counter-extremism and counterterrorism.

“Even in Iraq, where we’ve called ‘job done,’ ISIS is on its path to recovery already. In Syria, at least 2,000 ISIS militants remain active and on the frontlines in coalition areas of operation, and yet our ground war is virtually at a standstill due to complications with the Turks"



President of the Islamic Republic of Iran H.E. Hassan Rouhani, President of the Russian Federation H.E. Vladimir Putin and President of the Republic of Turkey H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan gathered in Ankara on 4 April 2018 for a tripartite meeting.



The Presidents:


Took note of the developments regarding Syria since their last meeting on 22 November 2017 in Sochi;

Expressed their satisfaction with the outcomes of the first year of the Astana meetings held since January 2017, underlined that the Astana format had been the only effective international initiative that had helped reduce violence across Syria and had contributed to peace and stability in Syria, giving impetus to the Geneva process in order to find a lasting political solution to the Syrian conflict;

Reaffirmed their determination to continue their active cooperation on Syria for the achievement of lasting ceasefire between the conflicting parties and advancement of the political process envisaged by the UN Security Council Resolution 2254;

Emphasized their strong and continued commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity, territorial integrity and non-sectarian character of Syria. They highlighted that none of the actions, no matter by whom they were undertaken, should undermine these principles, confirmed by relevant UN resolutions and by the will of the representatives of all segments of the Syrian society. They rejected all attempts to create new realities on the ground under the pretext of combating terrorism and expressed their determination to stand against separatist agendas aimed at undermining the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria as well as the national security of neighboring countries;

Expressed their conviction that the Syrian National Dialogue Congress, which was convened in Sochi on 30 January 2018, constituted an important milestone in paving the way for the political process, reiterated their commitment to follow up on the results of the Congress, reflecting the will of representatives of all segments of the Syrian society, in particular the agreement to form a Constitutional Committee, supported by the UN Secretary-General and the international community. They reaffirmed their support to facilitate the beginning of the Committee’s work in Geneva as soon as possible with the assistance of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Syria and in coordination with three guarantor states;

Called upon the representatives of the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic and the opposition committed to the sovereignty, independence, unity, territorial integrity and non-sectarian character of Syria as well as the international community to support the results of the Syrian National Dialogue Congress;

Expressed their conviction that there could be no military solution to the Syrian conflict and that the conflict could be ended only through a negotiated political process;

Reiterated the necessity to assist the Syrians in restoring the unity of their country and in achieving a political solution of the ongoing conflict through an inclusive, free, fair and transparent Syrian-led and Syrian-owned process based on the free will of the Syrian people and leading to a constitution enjoying the support of the Syrian people, and free and fair elections with the participation of all eligible Syrians under appropriate UN supervision;

Reaffirmed their determination to continue their cooperation in order to ultimately eliminate DAESH/ISIL, Nusra Front and all other individuals, groups, undertakings and entities associated with Al-Qaeda or DAESH/ISIL as designated by the UN Security Council in Syria and underscored the success of their collective efforts in the fight against international terrorism;

Underlined that, in the fight against terrorism, separating the above-mentioned terrorist groups from the armed opposition groups that had joined and would join the ceasefire regime bore utmost importance with respect to preventing civilian casualties;

Welcomed the UN Security Council Resolution 2401 in response to the grave humanitarian situation all across Syria, including in Eastern Ghouta, Yarmouk, Foua and Kefraya, Idlib Governorate, Northern Hama Governorate, Rukhban and Raqqa; strongly urged the conflicting parties to comply with the provisions of the said Resolution, including by refraining from ceasefire violations;

Underscored their joint determination to speed up their efforts to ensure calm on the ground and protect civilians in the de-escalation areas as well as to facilitate rapid, safe and unhindered humanitarian access to these areas and emphasized that the creation of de-escalation areas was temporary as provided for by the Memorandum of 4 May 2017;

Called upon the international community, particularly the UN and its humanitarian agencies, to increase its assistance to Syria by sending additional humanitarian aid, facilitating humanitarian mine action, restoring basic infrastructure assets, including social and economic facilities, and preserving historical heritage;

Welcomed the convening of the first meeting of the Working Group on the release of detainees/abductees and handover of the bodies as well as the identification of missing persons in Astana on 15 March 2018 with the participation of three guarantors as well as the UN and ICRC, and emphasized the importance of the effective functioning of the Working Group which would help build confidence between the conflicting parties;

Decided to hold their next meeting in the Islamic Republic of Iran upon the invitation of the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran H.E. Hassan Rouhani.

The Presidents of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Russian Federation expressed their sincere gratitude to the President of the Republic of Turkey H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for hosting this Tripartite Summit in Ankara.

  1. Could Israeli/US 'unhappiness' with this meeting explain the alt media silence- I did check zero hedge.. Real News Network- which seems hell bent on pushing identity politics and the AGW psyop- Antiwar.com has one article about refugees returning

    I could check some more sites, but, hopefully you all get the idea
    And if anyone has seen some coverage of this meeting elsewhere- let me know?

    1. I'm not inclined to trust ZH or Antiwar.com... both have been infiltrated by the Chosen. The only other place I've seen reporting on the meeting was at Vesti News (Russian sponsored)...

      My older brother usually finds a few things on such topics and posts to his forum Freedom Portal but he's been quite today. He's located in Greenwood B.C.

    2. A fellow Canadian (both of you) - very interesting-
      Thanks Dwayne!

      There are more then just those two I am not inclined to trust- Just a few of the little bloggers such as myself are about the extent of my trust- I started to realize some years ago( with the coverage of the Kurdish 'heros') that the so called alt media wasn't alternative.
      And was cheering them on without mentioning the whole Israel 2.0 or greater Israel plan in the same breath- Or the alt media claim that the Kurds were "fighting " ISIS? What a joke! I was disillusioned and heavily attacked for disagreeing- But, then I was shown to be right

      Reality trumps lies

  2. An update regarding the missing CDC Employee:
    I had discussed this news with a commenter a short time ago

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/05/us/cdc-employee-missing.html

    "The body of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention employee who went missing two months ago was found in a river in Atlanta on Tuesday, the authorities said on Thursday.
    His body was spotted on Tuesday in a remote area of the Chattahoochee River by a group of fishermen who called 911, Michael O’Connor, an Atlanta Police Department commander, told reporters. He was still wearing his favorite running shoes, raising the possibility that he had been jogging before his death.

    But Mr. O’Connor said the circumstances of Mr. Cunningham’s death might never be known.

    “Barring new information coming forward, we may never be able to tell you how he got into the river,” he said.

    “We’re not sure where he got into the river at, at this point. So we just don’t have those answers at this time.”

  4. Zero Hedge has some interesting articles, but buyer beware,its is or has become a Zionist hasbara outlet, regularly posting BS from the radical war mongers at "The Gatestone Institute" about those evil Muzzies.

    Avi is pissing and moaning because they don't get to dictate what happens to Syria and its brave people, like getting slaughtered so Israel can steal more land and reign supreme.

    Avi is another psychotic Russian Jew who's thriving in 'Stolenland,' cause he knows he cam commit any crime and not worry about prosecution.

      Exactly! When I noticed the paucity of coverage the three leaders were getting in the so called alt media, (which presents itself as challenging the "empire")- their statements and commitments it seemed apparent to me- same as with the obfuscation regarding USrael's kurdish proxies that most of the alt media is limited hangout territory.

      I had that episode of disenchantment years ago and the magic has never been rekindled
      Yah zero hedge is one of my questionable place and has been for quite some time
