The Syrian writer and researcher describes Jeffrey’s latest testimony as an attempt to rid Turkey of its crimes – ANHA | HAWARENEWS


Last week, former US special envoy for Syria, James Jeffrey, claimed that the mercenaries involved in the Serêkaniyê crimes had been brought to justice. With regard to the massacres and crimes of the organizations supported by Turkey, the United States of America and Turkey will be acquitted of these crimes and, in the next phase, charged with these groups under the title Undisciplined and Disorderly Groups.

The wording of the interview is as follows:

* Since the occupation of Afrin in 2018 and Serêkaniyê and Girê Spî in 2019, Turkey has committed crimes against the indigenous population through its mercenary groups. Donald Trump’s US envoy for Syria, James Jeffrey, admitted to having committed these crimes. What does this recognition mean?

I need to make it clear that the remarks made by the former US Administration representative regarding the Syrian Acts during the Donald Trump era are specifically expressing the US Administration and not expressing Jeffrey himself when he was in charge of the Syrian Act Turkey, and he was very close to Turkey, but represents the American political orientations in West Asia as a whole. When he looks at the records of the Turkish occupation of northern Syria in all regions, be it in Idlib, which he once called one of the fortresses of the Syrian opposition and Washington will not allow it to be overthrown, he says of the direction of the American one Project to keep the entire north of Syria under Turkish occupation, under the title of the Syrian opposition, and he wants to exonerate the United States of America and to absolve Turkey of these crimes and with his statements on the massacres and crimes of the organizations supported by Turkey their burden in the next phase for these groups under the title They are uncontrolled and undisciplined groups.

* Jeffrey tried to polish Turkey’s image by saying that mercenary groups had committed war crimes. Can the groups affiliated with Turkey do anything without instructions from the Turkish army? And why is Jeffrey trying to polish up Turkey’s image?

We all know that these groups are supported by Turkey, are led by the Turkish secret service and the Turkish army, and cannot move a finger without orders from them, and Turkey cannot pursue its policies in the northern regions without the implicit and clear consent of the American government, which has agreed to occupy Afrin, which, due to mutual considerations and self-deliberation, failed for each of them through a semi-agreement and Russian-American complicity, and what is related to the politics in these areas ? is more of a purely American policy by the Turkish government and then these armies, which are responsible for the crimes and will exonerate the American government and the political and intelligence leaders.

* Jeffrey was US Ambassador to Turkey for many years, and he played the main role in the American withdrawal from northern and eastern Syria and paved the way for Turkey to occupy the region and carry out these massacres of the population. Isn’t Jeffrey responsible for these crimes too?

Blaming James Jeffrey for the withdrawal of the United States or Washington, which allows Turkey to occupy large areas of northern Syria, is unrealistic, and we cannot imagine that James Jeffrey could do so; Because it is basically an American employee who has been entrusted with the administration of the Syrian Acts according to the established strategy and who implements the instructions of this administration, and therefore it is a grave mistake to keep a person in a superpower who has its institutions and Centers of study and formulates its policies with the utmost precision to serve its interests and responsibilities, and the real controller is the deep state in the United States, which saw its greatest interests in Turkey and not any other party; For reflections on the major international conflict between itself and Russia and China, and on Turkey’s ability to invest in influencing Russia and China through the Turkish-speaking peoples and countries in Central Asia and northwest China.

* Crimes in the Syrian territories occupied by Turkey are committed before the eyes of international powers and the international community. Why this blindness to Turkish crimes documented in a United Nations report from September 2021?

As for the crimes in the territories occupied by Turkey, the international community is a shaky society that is not as preoccupied with human rights issues and crimes as its interests can be asserted. The priority for the overall strategy of these countries, especially Western countries in general, especially the United States and most of the European Union countries.

The overall politics that are created in these countries are interests-based and utilize human rights issues and defend freedoms and democracies to serve American and Western interests when they so require and when those crimes and crimes collide with economic and geopolitical interests, silence is their fate.

This is the West in general, whose sacred priority is to assert its continued hegemony at the center of global decision-making, its continued pillage of large parts of the world, and control of the world economy by and large.

* Isn’t the silence from the international community a message to Turkey to continue its crimes and not to bring it to justice?

There is no message for Turkey to continue its crimes, but there is a West American cover for continuing this policy as long as Turkey can enforce the higher interests of this Western system. The priority it has in its international struggle requires it to ally itself with Turkey and fully regain it in order to discipline within the Ankara-drawn policy rather than the Ankara-drawn policy.

The Turkish project has surpassed its appeal and is now on its way back into the lap of the western project to be regulated with its goals and framework conditions, regardless of the negative effects on the population of the region.

* How seriously is the international community taking Turkey to account for its crimes that are not confined to Syria but have reached Nagorno-Karabakh, Libya and other parts of the world?

What Turkey achieved in Syria and Iraq, reached the areas in Bashiqa and tried to reach, in addition to the Caucasus region, Libya and all these regions it jumped into, ultimately serves Western interests, so there are none Real seriousness on the part of the countries of the so-called mendacious international community to hold Turkey accountable, unless they cannot fully control their policies with it and do not use the large leeway that they and others due to the American withdrawal and the Western withdrawal in the year had the face of China and Russia. Complete the western project and made his final decision to go to China and Russia and join the Belt and Roads Initiative project and the Eurasian Project with them and I think that is not possible because the Turkish economy with the Western economy and the politics of the World Bank dominate the economic and political politics in it, but it will continue to play on the edges of the contradictions between the countries in order to increase its ability to restore its imperial project that after the World War I collapsed, expand.

* What is required of the international community, particularly the United Nations, to fulfill its moral and humanitarian duties and to apply as little as possible the laws on which it was founded?

Much more is being asked of the United Nations, and not just on Turkish crime issues. Rather, it is with all the crimes in Palestine, Lebanon and Yemen and all the crimes that are not mentioned. Therefore, I am not relying on the issue of the United Nations, where the Security Council passed resolutions that were not implemented, including Resolution 242 of 1967 following the occupation of the West Bank in Palestine, Sinai and Golan. Or regarding the Turkish occupation of Northern Cyprus, and there is a Security Council resolution that has not been implemented and dozens of laws have not been implemented; Because the interests of the states are higher than the interests of the peoples, so I think that we should only rely on ourselves, the Syrians, to hold Turkey accountable by completely removing it from occupied northern Syria, what can be reflected in the Turkish interior by dropping Turkish illusions if they are national in nature or naturally expansive in nature and historical Ottoman purpose.
