U.S. Cuts Off Syria Talks With Russia

U.S. Cuts Off Syria Talks With Russia
The United States on Monday formally suspend its talks with Russia about Syria following the Russian military’s bombing of rebel-held parts of Aleppo, despite a previous ceasefire agreement. “The United States is suspending its participation in bilateral channels with Russia that were established to sustain the cessation of hostilities,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement. Several days after the September 9 cease-fire agreement, the deal collapsed and the Syrian government, along with Russia forces, continued rebel strongholds in the key northern Syrian city. “This is not a decision that was taken lightly,” Kirby added. “The United States spared no effort in negotiating and attempting to implement an arrangement with Russia aimed at reducing violence, providing unhindered humanitarian access, and degrading terrorist organizations operating in Syria… Unfortunately, Russia failed to live up to its own commitments.”

One thought on “U.S. Cuts Off Syria Talks With Russia

  1. This means that the USA is excluding itself from every possibility to solve the human crisis in the country, and especially the city of Aleppo!

    It means that the USA is leaving it to others, among them the Russians, to find a solution to the suffering of the all the civilian people in the country, and that the USA is withdrawing from ALL efforts by other countries, among them the EU, as well as the NGOs to find a solution to solve the situation!

    And last but not least, it means that the USA officially leaves the people behind who desperately need support and aid!

    The Russians have not made statements of this sort, they at least remain at the table to minimally talk with others, the USA obviously feels big and strong enough to dismiss others, while they themselves are guilty of for instance bombing hospitals in the region!

    Whatever the reasons may be, or have been, for the USA to withdraw from any possible solution is a puzzle, fact is that the USA has put itself outside the existing scope of opportunities to show humanity and the desire to solve the situation humanely!

    It is shocking to realize that the country that has been claiming to be defending humane values and norms is the first to withdraw from opportunities to bring a humane as possible solution to the situation, perhaps it is arrogance, perhaps it is hawkism, perhaps it is simply stupidity, or maybe it is simply utter ignorance and fatigue among the people making the decisions!

    Fact nevertheless is that the USA as of now will not be included in behind-the-scene negotiations, will not be involved in any other then bombings and destroying people’s lives and endorsing brutalities and suffering of innocent people!

    Bad, bad, and again bad!
    Above all sad, sad and again sad!
