The US is preparing in the Middle East geopolitical transformation

Some results of the visit of Secretary of State Tillerson to Moscow.

The results of the talks, the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, their next joint meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin has shown that the parties withdrew a few steps from the point of confrontation. Although, in the words of the press secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov, "talk of a shift in relations between Russia and the United States is still too early." Even despite the fact that the US president Donald Trump wrote in his Twitter account that "everything will be fine between the US and Russia, and at the right time all normal, and finally will be peace."

First, we note that Tillerson visit to Moscow took place after the first large-scale application of the entry into office of Trump military force - rocket attack on a Syrian air base. In fact as a pretext used provocative attacks in Idlib using chemical weapons, which led some experts to regard Washington's action as a prelude to further the use of military force, not only in Syria but also in other parts of the world. Therefore, the resulting precedent needed and needs to be a thorough investigation, which is, by the way, and Putin said at a meeting with Tillerson. At the same time, according to Peskov, "the president recounted interlocutor his vision of the reasons that led our bilateral relations to the sad state in which they are now." This means that Moscow clever use negotiation strategy to exit the like formed on the Syrian track deadlock forced the US to ignore a different point of view and to look and analyze the proposed picture of potential developments, not only regionally, but also globally, offer several options of further actions that involve, and do not rule out further dialogue between Russia and the United States.

Russian-American talks. April 12 2017 years, Moscow

Senior Fellow at the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies at Georgetown University Endryu Kachins in an interview with radio station "Voice of America" ​​said that "there is a very wide range of problems, it is extremely important for the United States, and for bilateral relations and for the security of the world." According to him, "for the two countries it was very important to find an answer to the question whether we can work together to create a common agenda, identify the range of issues over which could work together." By the way, and others, some US experts have noted that Moscow and Washington after talks Tillerson "chose to abstain from too stringent assessments and the effects of air attack with chemical weapons in Syria presented as" a serious discussion. " Therefore, after Washington as the main priority actions in Syria marked yet not the overthrow of President Assad, and the fight against LIH (organization, whose activities are prohibited in Russia), it became clear that the incident with the chemical attack is considered as an event, judged solely in their own framework. The US and Russia have agreed to continue cooperation in the search for a peaceful settlement of the war in Syria, Moscow, in turn, is ready to resume action with the Americans signed a memorandum on the prevention of incidents in Syria, the action of which the Russian authorities have suspended following a missile strike on Syria Washington.

Not everyone in the Middle East expect such a turn of events. For example, Ankara is not only welcomed the US missile attack, but also said that he would like to see such an extension, which would be "a turning point in US policy in the Middle East." At the same time, as noted by the Turkish expert Semih Idiz, "Turkey has assured the US hard-line policy against Syria duration, rushed into a virtual battle, really putting at stake its relations with Russia and Iran." And I miscalculated. Now, as Idiz says, Ankara "may not be enough time and effort to turn his" subtle diplomacy. " She had a feeling that she was "trapped" at two areas - the US, as Washington did not change its attitude towards the Syrian Kurds, and Russia, as Moscow was counting on support for the Kurds. Today it is possible only on a theoretical level, to talk about the alliance between the US and Russian capabilities in relation to the Kurdish question decisions prospects. And what will happen tomorrow? After all, the American experts do not hide the fact that "the United States in the Middle East there are plans that Trump does not yet want to disclose." Presumably, we are talking about the possibility of deploying a peacekeeping operation in Syria, following the example of Yugoslavia, which then collapsed. The same thing can wait for Syria, where great importance is the formation of the Kurdish north of the country, which could later merge with the Kurdish autonomy in Iraq.


Recall that the Kurds in Turkey for decades are fighting and unrest in Iranian Kurdistan. That is why there is a consistent first feeling that the United States began to withdraw Turkey from the "game" that is produced in principle. The second feeling is due to the fact that attempts to Russia to choose between the US and Iran (or "Hezbollah") failed. It is also possible that such a goal at this stage of Washington and did not set, limited until that kicked the stool from under the feet of Turkey, which is hung on a very high and dangerous precipice. Now the White House is more important, but the ability of Americans to influence the solution of global problems of the Middle East remains unclear.

Multivariance developments in this area involves the creation of conditions for the formation of the most improbable alliances, including even the access to the cooperation the United States and Iran, as well as the adoption of the Washington some new strategies for action. In our opinion, this is the moment veiled and recorded the results of his visit to Moscow, Secretary of State Tillerson: slow, but still closer ties with Russia, the establishment of the scheme in which you can after Ankara's move to the next stage of "geopolitical operation". Let's see what happens.
