Turkey’s deputy prime minister Numan Kurtulmushas warned that a global conflict is on the horizon if America and Russia cannot resolve their differences over the war in Syria.
While Turkey and the U.S. have been calling for Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to step aside, Russia has been backing al-Assad.
Russia announced recently that it was suspending joint research with the U.S. on nuclear energy projects, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called for a war crimes investigation after accusing al-Assad’s regime of intentionally bombing hospitals in Aleppo.
“If this proxy war continues, after this, let me be clear, America and Russia will come to a point of war,” Kurtulmus said.
At least 45 civilians have been killed by Russian-backed airstrikes within 24 hours.
The Daily Mail reports:
Meanwhile yesterday the US and Britain acknowledged, the Western world’s weak support for any military action against Syria’s government. After a meeting of 11 governments opposing Assad’s rule, Mr Kerry and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson each insisted that all options were on the table. But their stark explanations about the danger of resorting to military force appeared to rule out such a move.
The two countries are not only in a disagreement over Syria – they’re also arguing over cyber security. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, as well as the White House, have accused Russia of being behind the hacking of the DNC and email accounts from Clinton’s team.
Clinton claims the hacking is evidence that Russia favors Donald Trump for president, and claims they are trying to meddle in the U.S. elections.
Russian President Vladimir Putin had denied the allegations.
“There was a whole hysteria about that being of interest to Russia, but there is nothing within the interest of Russia,” Putin said at an investment forum in Moscow on Wednesday.
“The whole hysteria is aimed at making the American forget about the manipulation of public opinion,” he added. “No one is talking about that, everyone wants to know who did that, what is important is what is inside and what that information is about, he added.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told CNN it was a baseless accusation.
“It’s flattering, of course, to get this kind of attention — for a regional power, as President Obama called us some time ago … We have not seen a single fact, a single proof,” Lavrov said.
Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, has stated, “The quality of relations between us is certainly at the lowest point since the Cold War.”
Meanwhile, Clinton and all in opposition to Donald Trump have stated that Trump doesn’t have the “temperament” to be president, because he might get the U.S. into war, and have mocked him for his suggestions of making peace with Putin.
“I think it would be great if we got along with Russia,” Trump said Sunday at the second presidential debate.
Yet under the command of the very people who are opposed to a Trump presidency, the U.S. is on the brink of war with Russia.
