Moscow, SANA-The states of the BRICS groups reaffirmed on Tuesday their firm commitment to the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Syria.
The final statement of the 12th summit of the “BRICS” states, held through video conference and posted on the Kremlin website said “We declare once again our firm commitment to Syria’s sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity, pointing out that the crisis in Syria can’t be solved through military means ”.
According to Sputnik Agency, the BRICS countries also reiterated their international obligations to combat terrorism with all its forms, stressing the importance of unity in combating terrorist organizations operating in Syria .
On the Palestinian issue, the BRICS states called for exerting new efforts for a just and comprehensive settlement for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict .
“No longer viable” implies that the two-state solution has been viable and then became nonviable. Such an argument often presents Israeli settlements as the reason for the change. I disagree with the assertion from two seemingly contradictory arguments:
1) A state’s viability can take many forms and sizes, while borders and territory may be changed and agreed upon; hence there is no “point of no return” after which the two-state solution is no longer viable.
2) To begin with, the two-state solution is dependent on the two sides being willing and able to agree to, deliver, uphold, and survive it. For more than two decades, the required political will in Israel and with the Palestinians has been insufficient or contrary, while both sides doubt that the two-state solution is attainable at all. For the foreseeable future, Hamas as a significant counterforce will impede such an option, while both it and the Palestinian Authority lack the will, ability, and support to lead a united, stable Palestinian state as a reliable partner for peace.
In conclusion, the two-state solution is currently unattainable, if it ever was. This does not exclude the option of its viability in general, yet significant and proactive efforts are needed to create conditions for its success in the future.
When the war against Syria began in 2011, the Zionist enemy was still occupying the Golan Heights and the Turkish enemy was still occupying the Sanjak of Alexandretta.
Over the years, the Syrian Arab Army has managed to dismantle the conspiracies led by the United States and other colonial powers, in which the Zionist enemy and the Turkish enemy participated.
According to the new balance of powers in the region, when the war in Syria comes to an end, the Zionist enemy will be forced to withdraw fully from the Golan without alleged peace deals that follow the Camp David, Oslo and Arabah models.
The withdrawal will be without conditions and similar to the Zionist withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000.
The Zionist enemy has a crippling fear about entering into a direct war with the Syrian Arab Army, whose military and fighting capabilities have developed greatly and has stunned the Zionist enemy.
The enemy has tried and failed more than once to test the Syrian air defenses. Syria is fully prepared to enter into a war and liberate the occupied Arab territory in the Golan.
Of course, the same new equations apply to the Turkish enemy, which will be forced to withdraw from Syrian territory which it occupies, because the Syrian Arab Army and its allies will not accept anything but the full liberation of Syrian Arab territory, which has been occupied by aggressor nations which are either directly engaged in this war or which have been occupied by terrorist takfiri groups who work as proxies for them.
After that, Turkey will have to withdraw from the Sanjak of Alexandretta which has been historically occupied and which the Syrian state will not allow to remain occupied.
The Syrian Arab Army is ready to enter into a war to liberate it — with God as our witness.
