Syrian parliamentarian to ST: Terrorists in Idlib pose threat to all world countries


Syrian Member of Parliament Dr. Ahmad Mer’ei has underscored that the Iranian Foreign Minister’s yesterday diplomatic visit to Damascus is a clear message to the United States that there is a strong coalition between Tehran and Damascus that will stand together against any U.S. or Israeli threat.

He told the Syriatimes e-newspaper that the visit of Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, which came around one week after the visit made by Iran’s Defense Minister where a military coordination deal was signed, dealt with the forthcoming tripartite summit to be held between Iran, Russia, Turkey in Tehran in order to discuss Idlib battle.

“Idlib battle is not the last battle. It is the last major battle in Syria and its importance lies in eliminating the last terrorist gathering that poses threat not only to Syria but also to all world countries as 30000 foreign terrorists are reportedly still in Idlib and no country wants them to go back to their homeland [in Europe],” the MP said, referring to the role of Turkey in the file of Idlib battle.

Turkish regime has deepened its colonization and exploitation of the occupied part of Cyprus

The 14th of August marks the tragic day on which Turkey launched its second brutal invasion of the Republic of Cyprus in 1974. It has been asserted that the Turkish regime has deepened over the past 44 years its colonization and exploitation of the occupied territory of Cyprus amid the international community's silence and support for Turkey's Bizonal Bicommunal Federal policy. A policy founded on segregation between the Moslem and non-Moslem population.

Coordinator of the Lobby for Cyprus, Theo Theodorou, told the Syria Times e-newspaper that Turkey under the leadership of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has deepened its colonization and exploitation of the occupied territory of the Republic of Cyprus. It has consolidated the de facto Islamisation of the occupied area, through a programme of ethno cleansing, destruction of cultural heritage and population displacement.

"Turkey has also stepped up its verbal and physical threats to the Republic of Cyprus. For example the Exclusive Economic Zones incursion earlier this year,

Syrian MP to ST: Idlib will never be another Northern Cyprus

The Member of the Syrian Parliament, Dr. Ahmad Kuzbari, has underscored that the Turkish regime will never succeed in making Idlib province, another Northern Cyprus, and the Syrian army will raise the national flag in the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

His remarks were made during an interview with Syriatimes     e-newspaper about the political process, the Turkish and US presence in Syria, and the so-called Syrian moderate opposition and constitutional committee.  

The parliamentarian asserted that the Turkish forces which exist in the north of Syria are occupiers and they will leave the Syrian territories sooner or later.

"I think that there is no justification for the occupation. Erdogan's face has been smeared with dirt when the whole world realized that he is supporting terrorist groups and when his brotherhood project that aimed at reviving the Ottoman empire failed, not to mention his exploitation of the Syrian refugees issue.” The MP said, reminding us of the Turkish invasion of the north of Cyprus in 1974 where Turkey was one of the guarantor powers for Cyprus’ security.

Belgian politician to ST: attempts to destabilize Iran from within, influence EU


Belgian politician Hervé Van Laethem has said that the United States and Israel are trying to destabilize Iran from within after they have realized that it is not possible to overthrow the regime through outside action.

His remark was made during an interview with the Syriatimes e-newspaper over the sanctions reimposed by the U.S. against Iran plus Belgium’s stance towards these sanctions.

“It is certain that these sanctions aim to push Iran to make mistakes that the US will try to exploit later. So, the Iranian leaders must be cautious and think about how to thwart the US plans,” Laethem said, stressing that the U.S. has failed to achieve its goal despite of all measures adopted by it against Iran over the past 40 years. 

Canadian Analyst ST: Saudi Arabia and its Western allies are losing the war on Syria

The Canadian Political analyst and research associate at Global Research Mark Taliano has stressed that Saudi Arabia and its Western allies are losing the war on Syria and that will impact geopolitical relations, referring to the fact that Canada is a partner with Wahhabi Saudi Arabia in the destruction of Syria. 

In an interview with the Syriatimes e-newspaper over the current rift between Ottawa and Riyadh, Taliano said: “Both Canada, NATO, and their allies (including Saudi Arabia) support sectarian terrorists in Syria, including al Qaeda and ISIS, who seek to transform democratic, pluralist, secular Syria into an Islamic Caliphate.”
