Turkey: Still no hope for political solution in Syria

Turkey: Still no hope for political solution in Syria

The tense situation in Syria is still going on, the international community tries to find the ways to bring peace into Aleppo and the other part of the country tore by civilian war. Turkey’s presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Thursday that the reaching a diplomatic consensus between the sides of this conflict is bleak. In other words, still no hope for a political solution in Syria, think Ankara.

Turkey reminded on Thursday that Russia is the partner of the International Syria Support Group, and it needs to ensure political transition in Syria in cooperation with Russia as soon as possible, said Ibrahim Kalin.

Turkey still blames Bashar Assad’s regime for causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians. Now Ankara believes that with such a Syrian President as Bashar al-Assad in power it’s quite difficult to talk about a political transition for the country.

The war in Syria began in 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests (echoes of Arab Spring uprisings) with unexpected ferocity. The death toll is rising every day, according to UN, since 2011 250 thousand victims have been killed. Moreover, the war turned more than 10 mln people in internally displaced persons, they have to live across the war-battered country.
