With great interest, the Syrians watched the meeting in the Qatari capital, Doha, today, amid differences of opinion centered around the question: Will the stagnation of political solutions move in Syria?
The meeting, which included three of the influential countries in the tracks of the Syrian crisis, comes at a sensitive period for Syria, which is preparing for presidential elections, for which the candidacy will begin to be announced about a month from now.
We have a very critical and sensitive month in the region.
The strategic expert, Kamal Al-Jafa, tells RT, and talks about that what we are witnessing of the Russian movement comes within a reading of a new repositioning of all Arab countries and that it will not be in the interest of Turkish ambitions in the region.
Al-Jaffa says that the Russian initiative comes to support an Arab crowd supporting the Syrian position, after the Arab countries’ conviction that President Bashar al-Assad will remain, regardless of everything, and he adds that this initiative has a crucial period in the coming days before the start of the announcement of candidacy for the presidential elections.
“Until mid-April, there is a pivotal stage. Either a certain initiative will succeed, or there will be dark months for the Syrians and more pressure and siege.”
Al-Jafa refers to the Qatari role specifically, as he believes that Qatar does not accept to enter a path unless it is “in the middle” and that its relations with Turkey are fundamental.
As for the Syrians, whatever the options will be their gain, the three countries have declared that they are against divisive projects and with the unity of Syria and the withdrawal of all illegal forces, so there is an opportunity, and there must be concessions from the Syrian state.
Al-Jaffa clarifies that what is happening now is the search for solutions that “satisfy everyone,” and it is not excluded that there will be a process among them with the participation of anyone from the opposition in it. In reference to it in the United States).
Al-Jafa speaks of that, since the advent of the new American administration, “there is a green light with the withdrawal of Qatar from Turkey, which was able to penetrate the wall of Arab relations through Doha.”
Al-Jaffa added that Turkey “departed from the framework set for it after it had a functional role and began to pursue expansionary policies that are not commensurate with the European Union, America, Iran or Russia.” This pushes the American administration to put pressure on the Turkish president and support his opponents.
Al-Jafa believes that “what is happening is in the interest of Syria,” adding that “no matter how painful the solutions or concessions are, they are in the interest of the Syrians.” He says, “We are unable to continue indefinitely in a war in which we face everyone.”
Al-Jaffa expresses his conviction that all the movement in the region will be at the expense of curtailing the Turkish role in Syria, and it provides greater support to the Syrian state, which, once it receives an embrace or Arab depth, matters will proceed in its interest.
And he notes that the course of events is heading towards “creating a new path with Moscow as its godfather, and inevitably with an American green light and Arab support.”
