Political Analyst: Syrian Crisis Nearing End, Takfiri Project Losing
A political analyst and strategic researcher underlined that the Syrian crisis is nearing its end and the Takfiri scenario is doomed to failure.
“It goes without saying that Syria and its allies will be the winner of the war (with the terrorists),” Issa al-Zaher told FNA on Saturday.
He reiterated that the Takfiri project is facing failure as the Syrian crisis is ending.
“Under the present conditions that a meeting on the Syrian crisis is underway in Moscow, the Syrian government is in a better position as compared with the opposition forces …,” al-Zaher said.
On Friday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Russia and Syria highly estimated the document adopted at the intra-Syrian talks in Moscow on April 6-9.
“They highly estimated the Moscow Platform adopted by the participants in the consultations,” the ministry said on Friday after a meeting between Russian presidential envoy for the Middle East and North African countries and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov with Syria’s government delegation to the Moscow consultations led by Syria’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations Bashar al-Jafari.
“Bogdanov and al-Jafari reiterated Moscow’s and Damascus’ commitment to political settlement in Syria via an intra-Syrian dialogue without interference from outside on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012.”
The sides also stressed the importance of further coordination of efforts in the interests of the soonest end to bloodshed in Syria, restoration of national accord among the Syrians and rebuffing international terrorists and extremists acting in Syria.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. According to reports, more than seven million Syrians have become internally displaced.
An international peace conference on Syria, dubbed Geneva-2, organized by Russia and the United States and designed to negotiate a solution to the Syrian crisis, held in January and February 2014, brought no particular progress.
