Moscow as the peacemaker

17 2 3

Not quite. One can safely assume that Moscow dictates the, call it “new order” or the “new status quo” in Idlib. And at that, effectively getting in between the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the Syrian Arab Army (SyAA). No more, no less and temporarily. Compared to a potential full-blown Turco-Syrian war, encouraged first and foremost by the U.S., it is no small feat either.

It took almost three hours for Erdoğan and Putin and then another three for the respective Turkish and Russian delegations in Moscow to reach an agreement of a mere three points which would not take more than six minutes compared to six hours of talks to put with black ink on white paper. All that, under the inquisitive gaze of Tsarina Catherine “The Great”.

I will dare to say that Putin dictated his will to his Turkish counterparts. Just the fact that the meeting that led to the signing of this new protocol took place in Moscow is a clear sign........
