Lavrov: “USA Actually Set Up Alternative Government Bodies in Large Parts of Syria”

________________________

On Friday, Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov said at a UN press conference:

We’ve received contradictory signals in this connection… a couple of days ago, the Americans announced the establishment of border security forces in Syria, and today they said that they were misunderstood as they had no plans to form such forces. However, it’s a fact that the USA actually set up alternative government bodies in large parts of Syria, which is contrary to the obligations in relation to Syria’s territorial integrity they reaffirmed commitment to, particularly at Security Council’s meetings. We’re concerned about that.

US Plans 

On 14 January, US Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve’s Director of Public Affairs Colonel Thomas Veale told us that the USA was training Syrian border security service personnel, which they expect to reach a total strength of around 30,000. Ibrahim Kalin, the Turkish President’s spokesman, said that Washington’s decision to train Kurdish troops to guard the Syrian-Turkish border was unacceptable. Later, The Pentagon said that you couldn’t describe the forces as an army, whilst US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said:

The entire situation was misportrayed, misdescribed. We aren’t creating a border security force at all.

The Yanks slammed their dick in the door, yet again. They got caught trying to pull a fast one… and a fast one involving Kurds at that. If there was anything that could drive the Turks into embracing Russia, well, this was that. Washington continues to goad the Turks… it keeps sticking a pin in their ass and giving dumbass replies when caught in the act. The Anglos are showing their juvenile arrogance and hubris. Trust me, the Turks will NOT allow any sort of armed Kurdish force on their borders. Foggy Bottom had best admit that Syria is a lost cause and get out of Dodge… if it doesn’t and continues to back the Kurds, well, they WILL lose Turkey as an ally. After all, Turkey doesn’t fear Russia… but it does fear American backing of the Kurds. Stay tuned on this one… it’s far from over, kids…
