Reuters: Russia anticipates US diplomatic steps in Syria

Announcing the launch of a humanitarian campaign in Aleppo, Moscow ahead of Washington’s demands

Attempts by the US Secretary of State John Kerry to force Moscow to help America in its struggle against the “Islamic State” in Syria on Thursday suffered a double failure, writes Reuters.

First, the Syrian army said it has taken control of all roads leading to the eastern part of the city of Aleppo, the stronghold of the Syrian opposition, and Syrian President Bashar Assad called on residents to leave the city.

The move is estimated to US officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity anticipated US demand that Russia and Syria to open the approaches to this divided severosiriyskomu city before will create a joint intelligence center to coordinate attacks against the “Islamic State” (a terrorist organization banned in Russia -. approx BFM), writes Reuters.

Then the Syrian al-Qaeda unit in Syria announced the break with the international terrorist network founded by Osama bin Laden, and to change the name to take away, according to its leaders, the United States and other countries pretexts for attacks on Syrians.

Despite the fact that one US official called the move “a change of signs,” he complicates the implementation of Russia and Syria, the US proposal to limit its action attacks only on “Islamic State” and the position “Dzhebhat en-Nusra” (also prohibited on the territory of Russia - approx . BFM), excluding from its goals groups backed by Washington and its allies in the coalition that is fighting with the “Islamic state”.

“Dissociate themselves from Al Qaeda (which is, however, made with the blessing of the organization),” Dzhebhat en-Nusra “made more difficult its separation from the more moderate groups of the fighters who will now be able to integrate into it, because it has more power than their current groups, “says the agency.

US officials have questioned the sincerity of Russia and Syria claims that the evacuation of residents of Aleppo is aimed at providing humanitarian supplies to the besieged city, which is 200-300 thousand inhabitants with only two or three-week supply of food.

“At first glance, says one of the Reuters interlocutors, it looks like a one-sided attempt by Moscow and Assad ahead of demand Kerry to lift the blockade of Aleppo before the start of talks on a wide range of issues. If this proposal is not yet dead, it is, at least, were seriously injured. “
