April 13, 2017 MEMRI – SPECIAL DISPATCH – No. 6878
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s visit to Moscow on April 11-12, 2017 came against the backdrop of a recent U.S. missile strike on a Syrian airbase that was followed by political tensions between Russia and the U.S. At the G7 meeting in Italy just prior to his trip to Moscow, Tillerson had stated: “I think it’s also worth thinking about Russia has [sic] really aligned itself with the Assad regime, the Iranians, and Hizbullah. Is that a long-term alliance that serves Russia’s interest, or would Russia prefer to realign with the United States, with other Western countries and Middle East countries who are seeking to resolve the Syrian crisis? We want to relieve the suffering of the Syrian people. We want to create a future for Syria that is stable and secure. And so Russia can be a part of that future and play an important role, or Russia can maintain its alliance with this group, which we believe is not going to serve Russia’s interest longer-term. But only Russia can answer that question.”

MESOP NEWS TODAYS PRO PYD/PKK OPINION : By Michael Rubin – Why Have the Kurds Got Into Bed With Putin? – Putin’s NOW & FOREVER AIRBASE IN KURDISTAN-ROJAVA
By Michael Rubin On 4/12/17 NEWSWEEK – Moscow has reportedly struck a deal with the Syrian Kurds to establish a Russian base in Afrin, one of the cantons which Syrian Kurds now govern. If that deal comes to fruition, Russia benefits tremendously.
Before the Syrian civil war began, Russia maintained its only military base outside the confines of the former Soviet Union at Tartus naval base. When Russia—with Secretary of State John Kerry’s acquiescence—entered the Syrian civil war more formally, it took over the Hmeimim Air Base near Latakia and, despite press reports (and Obama administration surrogate Philip Gordon’s statements to the contrary), it never left.

MESOP NEWS : WHY PUTIN TOPS TRUMP – Putin’s Self-Serving Israel Agenda
Why Russia Now Recognizes West Jerusalem as the Capital
By Anna Borshchevskaya – Foreign Affairs – On April 6, the Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry announced that Moscow formally recognized West Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. In the declaration, Russia first reaffirmed its commitment to UN principles of an eventual Israeli-Palestinian settlement and said it saw East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. “At the same time,” the statement read, “we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.” Although Israel continues to view Jerusalem in its entirety as the country’s capital, no country today maintains an embassy in the city. El Salvador and Costa Rica moved their embassies to Tel Aviv a decade ago (they were the last to do so). And despite the declaration, Russia is reportedly not yet considering moving its embassy.

MESOP NEWS TODAYS ESSAY : Iran’s Next Supreme Leader / The Islamic Republic After Khamenei –
By Sanam Vakil and Hossein Rassam – FOREIGN AFFAIRS –
On July 17, 2016, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, turned 77. Rumors that he suffers from cancer have circulated for over a decade, and in 2014, the state-run news agency published photos of him recovering from prostate surgery. Although Khamenei’s prognosis remains closely guarded, the Iranian government is evidently treating his succession with urgency. In December 2015, Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a former president and a kingmaker, broached the usually taboo subject when he publicly admitted that a council within the Assembly of Experts, the body that selects the supreme leader, was already vetting potential successors. And last March, after new members of the assembly were elected to an eight-year term, Khamenei himself called the probability that they would have to select his replacement “not low.” Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=84856

MESOP NEWS TODAYS SYRIA ANALYSIS : Tillerson – Russia has ‘best means’ to convince Assad to go
By Laura Rozen – Al Monitor – 13 Apr 2017 – WASHINGTON — On his first trip to Russia as secretary of state, Rex Tillerson came out of two hours of meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin on April 12 saying the United States and Russia needed to take steps to halt the sharp degradation of relations between the world’s foremost nuclear powers.
But while Tillerson said he and his Russian interlocutors were looking to build on areas of common ground, their sharp differences, including over the role of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria and his culpability in the April 4 chemical weapons attack in Idlib province, seemed to overwhelm any agreement on a process for advancing a political solution to end the Syrian civil war.

MESOP NEWS DISCOVERY : Iranian Website Specializing In Syrian War Reports: Gas Attack Intended To Save Iranian/Syrian Frontline In Khan Sheikhoun Region From Breakdown
13 Apr 2017 – The Middle East Media Research Institute – Introduction – The April 4 Sarin gas attack on Khan Sheikhoun, just one day after the U.S. administration changed its position vis-à-vis Syrian President Al-Assad, declaring that his removal from power was no longer a priority, raised questions regarding the underlying motive for the attack. Indeed, the initial Russian claim that the attack had been fabricated by opponents of the Syrian regime was based on its being so clearly against Syrian interests.

MESOP NEWS “EVIDENCE & UK PROOF” : UK Scientists Confirm Idlib Sarin Use, Weapons Experts in Turkey to Investigate
Asharq Al-Awsat English – 13 Apr 2017 – The British delegation at the world’s chemical weapons watchdog said on Thursday that samples taken from the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria’s rebel-held Idlib province last week tested positive for the nerve agent sarin.The toxic gas attack in Idlib’s Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, which killed scores of children, prompted the United States to launch missile strikes on an air base in Shayrat that lies in central Syria’s Homs and widened a rift between Washington and Moscow, a close Syrian ally.“UK scientists have analyzed samples taken from Khan Sheikhoun. These have tested positive for the nerve agent sarin, or a sarin-like substance,” the delegation said during a special session at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in The Hague.

This is what the Iraqi Baathist regime did at the time of Saddam Hussein’s rule; it conducted horrific operations of massacres against the Kurdish people and demolished thousands of Kurdish-inhabited villages in northern Iraq. Anfal genocidal operation was one of the most barbaric operations prosecuted against the Kurdish population.
