Syria's Ambassador to Jordan, Bahjat Suleiman said that the American administration wants to reach a political solution in Syria and will give "decisive orders" to its allies and partners that it is now "Game Over."
Suleiman made the remarks in a Facebook post Wednesday, adding that there are many signs indicating this new American position. One critical sign, he said, is that the U.S. is attempting to pull out of Afghanistan peacefully.
Suleiman was a senior intelligence officer under former President Hafez Assad's rule and he held a political role in administrating the country.
He also said that the U.S. seeks to avoid military conflict with Iran, "despite all its cries and noises."
"The U.S. administration wants also to get rid of the headache in North Korea," he said, adding that Washington is seeking to revive the American economy after its public debt had reached $16 trillion.
Sueliman outlined the reasons for the shift in U.S. policy as follows:
– America wants to leave Afghanistan safely.
– America wants to avoid military conflict with Iran.
– America wants to eliminate the Palestinian issue to achieve the security of Israel.
– America wants to get rid of the headache North Korea causes.
– America wants to revive the American economy after American public debt had reached $16 trillion dollars.
– American wants to cool political tensions with Russia and China.
Suleiman said that all these factors have pushed Washington towards a political solution in Syria and consequently, that orders had been given to its partners to "end the game."
Suleiman said "the agreement on a solution to the Syrian crisis is obligatory for the American administration,” adding that the Syrian state, for its part, “has settled on two choices; either victory, or victory, whatever the cost and whatever the sacrifices.”
