Battle-Bled Syria Keeps on Fighting

VIKTOR MIKHIN—The West, the United States, first of all, think little of  international law, and consequently, no agreements and treaties based on international law are operational anymore.

Eurasia torn between war and peace

China will invest in the reconstruction of Syria and its revamping as a key Southwest Asia node of the BRI. “Assad must go” is a non-starter; Russia-China see Damascus as essential in the fight against Salafi-jihadis of all stripes who may be tempted to return and wreak havoc in Chechnya and Xinjiang. A week ago, at an SCO ministerial meeting, Russia-China issued a joint communiqué supporting the JCPOA.
