Syria: Barack Obama met again with his national security team.
While a new statement from Washington says that the U.S. President Barack Obama met again with his national security team in terms of Syria and the information allegedly comes from a US official, the other side in Moscow has published the statement that Russia welcomes the vote against an attack on Syria by the British parliament.
However, what the information about a new meeting of U.S. President Barack Obama with his national security team in regards of a potential military strike against Syria means remains to be seen. At least, it is still the situation that Russia, Iran, and other nations such as Germany, Poland and Italy reject a military attack on Syria.
According to the information that is currently available and based on an allegedly official from Washington who gave the information under the condition of anonymity, the U.S. President Barack Obama already met his National Security Council at the White House in regards of Syria today.
The recent Russian statement says that Moscow welcomes the UK vote against a military offensive on Damascus by the British parliament. According to the official statement and the remarks of the senior foreign policy adviser of the Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mr Yuri Ushakov, Moscow is very happy about the British parliament’s rejection of a military attack against Syria.
Vladimir Putin’s senior foreign policy adviser, Yuri Ushakov, also said that the vote by the British parliament shows the growing public understanding of the risks of such a military move against the Syrian government in Damascus.
Yuri Ushakov added that the result of the vote by the British parliament against the participation in a military offensive against Syria would reflect the opinion of the majority in the UK and other European countries.
For Putin’s senior foreign policy adviser, Yuri Ushakov, this seems that the majority of the people are starting to understand the potential dire consequences of such scenarios. Ushakov said, for example, that it seems to him “that people are starting to understand how dangerous such scenarios are.”
The Russian senior foreign policy adviser, Yuri Ushakov, also stated in his new remarks after the vote against a military offensive on Syria by the UK parliament, that a military strike on Damascus without the approval and support from the UN Security Council (UNSC) would only inflict a great damage to the international system, which is mainly based on the central role of the United Nations (UN) and its Charta.
The foreign policy adviser of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin added that such actions of bypassing the UNSC (UN Security Council) will bring a great damage to the major principles of the central role of the United Nations (UN) and the international system.
Already earlier today, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia, Mr Gennady Gatilov, has yet again underlined Moscow’s rejection of any resolution at the UN Security Council that would pave the path for a military strike against Syria.
