Kerry: US Welcomes Outcome From Gathering Of Syrian Opposition In Riyadh


US Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday the United States welcomed the positive outcome of the gathering of the Syrian opposition in Riyadh, including reaching a consensus on principles for a pluralistic and democratic Syria and on how to advance a political settlement to end the conflict in Syria.

“As I conveyed to Foreign Minister Al-Jubeir today, we appreciate Saudi Arabia’s leadership in convening this broad and representative group of 116 participants, who agreed today on the structure of their negotiating body to represent them in the political process,” Kerry said. “We appreciate that this extremely diverse group of Syrians put aside differences in the interest of building a new Syria.”

According to Kerry, with the progress made in both Vienna and now in Riyadh, the International Syria Support Group continues to build a foundation for constructive negotiations in January under UN auspices, regarding a political transition in accordance with the Geneva Communique of 2012.

“While this important step forward brings us closer to starting negotiations between the Syrian parties, we recognize the difficult work ahead, and remain determined to continue toward a political settlement that brings an end the conflict,” Kerry said.

    I feel sorry about Secretary Kerry, President Obama, and many other politicians. All think that Syria has strong relationship with Daesh Al Fahish and consequently a change is needed. And all think that Turkey and Sultan Erdogan and other wolves are fighting Daesh. I do not think this totality of our politicians and leaders with their wrong view can fool American people anymore. All Americans know where Daesh funds come from and all know the producers of Daesh’s weapons. US goal is still to contain Daesh in the region to continue kill innocent people and destroy countries and the media corporation is hitting the same drums daily. And the military complex is making huge profits. Secretary Kerry do not tell us the same error and think we believe it. And stop implementing Israel strategy aiming at dividing Syria and Iraq and other Arab countries. Try to be a secretary of state that represents his country. If you think we do not know the truth, please find another job.

    These secretaries of state are ruthless liars (earlier ones like Henry Kissinger, Madeline Albright and Hilary Clinton are perhaps worse)and push hegemonic agendas under the rubric of “diplomacy”. They do not care about innocent human lives or suffering. They divide, destabilise and create chaos so that their agendas can succeed. Meanwhile, millions die needlessly. Don’t believe the media hype or media statements they make!
