Russian senator says West forced to give Russia blank check for restoring peace in Syria

restoring peace in Syria
The Sochi talks between the presidents of Russia, Turkey and Iran confirmed the leading role of the three countries in resolving the Syria issue, Chairman of the Russian Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Committee for Foreign Affairs Konstantin Kosachev wrote on Facebook.
According to him, it is clear that the United States and its allies do not have any opportunity to impose conditions concerning efforts to achieve peace in Syria, while they have been forced to give Russia a blank check.

"The agreements reached by Russia, Turkey and Iran prove that the three countries have taken the initiative to resolve the Syria issue and are not going to abandon it," Kosachev said. "It became possible thanks to Russia’s decisive interference in the conflict, which fundamentally changed the situation. But Russia does not seek to fully control everything and everyone, which is the reason why the three countries have become the guarantors of the ceasefire agreements and the upcoming peace process," the Russian senator added.

"It is clear that to win peace in Syria will be more difficult that to win the war. But the defeat of the major terrorist forces says that there is a true chance for peace, as well as the leading players’ willingness to acknowledge the constructive activities of Russia and the trilateral group. Besides, everyone in Syria has grown tired of the war, while the West has been forced to give Russia a blank check," Kosachev noted.

According to him, the United States and its allies are particularly concerned over the possibility that Iran, and not Russia or Syria, will strengthen its influence in the region. "The US will, first and foremost, do everything possible to prevent Iran from enhancing its influence in the region and preserving its presence in Syria, while Washington views Russia’s presence as an inevitable but acceptable fact. The West could make Iran’s withdrawal from Syria the main condition for its own withdrawal," Kosachev said.

"One way or another, the Americans are not in the position to impose conditions, which is perfectly clear," he concluded.
