Russia Today – Syrian govt accepts Annan’s 6-point peace plan
Gatilov: Russia Awaiting Syrian Opposition’s Acceptance of Annan’s Plan
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov on Tuesday said Moscow is waiting for the Syrian opposition to accept the plan of UN-Arab League special envoy to Syria Kofi Annan to settle the crisis.
The Russian ITAR-TASS news agency quoted Gatilov as saying on his Twitter page that the Syrian authorities have accepted Annan’s plan and that the envoy expressed cautious optimism over this, adding ”this is a step forward…now it’s the opposition’s turn.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich announced that his country is not participating in the meeting of the so-called ‘Friends of Syria’ due to be held on April 1st in the Turkish city of Istanbul, saying such activities have a politicized character and unilateral approach.
”The participants in Istanbul meeting are preparing for foreign intervention and they are not seeking solution for national dialogue or a peaceful settlement to the crisis in Syria,” Lukashevich was quoted as saying by ITAR-TASS agency.
Jag noterar att den ryske ministern i citatet ovan säger att de som deltar på mötet i Turkiet, som kallas Syriens vänner men som snarare är Syriens fiender, inte är ute efter en fredlig lösning utan planerar för hur utländsk inblandning. Men samtidigt kom den här kommentaren på en facebook-grupp om Syrien:
WOW a change!! #Syria #RealSyria
Washington: Assad’s approval on Annan’s plan is an important step, and he has to start implementing it immediately.
Syria on agenda as Clinton travels to Saudi Arabia
Syria: A further Friends-of-Syria meeting – the dubious Contact Group
Toni Solo – The West’s endless war on humanity : after Libya – Syria, Iran
Elias Akleh – Hypocrisy of Humanitarian Aid to Syria
… Unfortunately Clinton was defending instead the Western/Qatari/Saudi armed foreigners, al-Qaeda, and Syrian rebels, who had been terrorizing and massacring Syrian civilians in many Syrian border cities. As for the Palestinian self-defense Clinton had this hippocratic contradictory response: “Let me also condemn in the strongest terms the rocket fire from Gaza into southern Israel, which continued over the weekend.” Clinton’s fake humanitarian sentiments towards the Palestinians were also expressed in her threats to stop the American financial aid to Egypt if it exports fuel to Gaza to operate its power station. Gaza has been in total darkness for weeks due to shortage of fuel. It seems that in Clinton’s twisted logic Palestinians have no right for self-defense and Syrian government has no right to fight terrorists.
