Analysts claim that the talks Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov laid the basis for improved US-Russian cooperation on Syria.

WASHINGTON / The talks Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov laid the basis for improved US-Russian cooperation on Syria, analysts told Sputnik.

“This meeting seems to have put things on a more peaceful track. We can all applaud that,” professor of neuroscience and political commentator John Walsh said. “Definitely the outcome of the talks with Tillerson, Lavrov and Putin was much better than expected.”

The talks established the ground work for cautious but improved collaboration between Moscow and Washington in seeking to resolve the six-year-long civil war in Syria that cost more than half a million lives and crated more than four million refugees, Walsh said.

“The cooperation could range from joint military action to the much simpler one whereby the US pressures its allies like Saudi Arabia and Qatar and perhaps Israel whose role is unclear to cease support of ISIS [the Islamic State, also known as Daesh],” he said.

Walsh also believed that Tillerson’s visit paved the way for a visit by President Donald Trump to the Russian capital in the near future.

“I think the prospects for that have vastly improved and we should all be thankful for that… Let us hope we are now on track again for Detente 2.0,” he said.

Australian foreign policy analyst Crispin Rovere agreed that the outcome of the Moscow talks was better than expected and pointed to improved superpower cooperation on Syria.

“It was a positive result: There was speculation that President Putin would not meet with Secretary Tillerson, yet there was a productive meeting between them lasting for two hours. Russia has agreed to reinstate protocols for military cooperation in Syria,” he said.

Rovere pointed to other substantial progress on the diplomatic front in dealing with the crisis as a result of the talks.

“Bilateral working groups are being established to address barriers to bilateral ties, and both sides agreed that an investigation into the alleged Syrian gas attack should be conducted by the OPCW [Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons],” he said.

Rovere also expressed optimism that Trump and Tillerson recognized the need to build mutual trust between their nations.

“What the Trump administration realizes is that the problem is trust and not some irreconcilable differences in world-view between the two powers. If trust improves there is no reason why a genuine partnership should not emerge,” he explained.

Improved relations would benefit both nations on a wide range of issues, Rovere predicted.

“The upside in terms of defense cooperation, cyberspace, arms control, trade, investment, and regional stability stemming from a warmer US-Russia relationship is literally endless. Most immediately, the US and Russia should work on a pathway leading to the easing of sanctions,” Rovere said.

Tillerson’s visit to Moscow “augurs well” for a future meeting between Trump and Putin, Rovere concluded.

Crispin Rovere is a member of the Australian Labor Party and previous convenor of the ACT ALP International Affairs Policy Committee. Formerly he was a PhD candidate at the ANU’s Strategic and Defence Studies Centre (SDSC) and previously worked in Secretariat of the Asia-Pacific Leadership Network for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, and published on nuclear policy.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US State Secretary Rex Tillerson spent 99 percent of the duration of their talks Wednesday discussing issues related to Syria crisis, two Russian diplomatic sources, who had been present at the talks, told Sputnik Thursday.

MOSCOW, April 13 (Sputnik) — When asked whether Lavrov and Tillerson discussed the situation in Ukraine, the source answered “practically no.”

“They mainly focused on Syria and spent 99 percent of the time talking about it,” a source said.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Tillerson visited Moscow for the first time after his appointment as US state secretary. Tillerson held a meeting with Lavrov and then a joint meeting with President Vladimir Putin, which lasted for about two hours.

Following the talks, the ministers said that other issues that were discussed were the current state of Russia-US relations, international political cooperation, cybersecurity, disarmament, and international terrorism.

Both sides said that the talks were constructive, as they had managed to inform each other of their views on bilateral relations and major international problems. Lavrov, in particular, said that Moscow saw a readiness on behalf of the United States to support an international investigation of the April 4 events in Idlib.

Tillerson, on his part, said that Washington and Moscow agreed that there should be more high-level communication between the two countries.

Censorship Alert — the duran

On April 12, 2018, I tried to post two comments at The Duran using the word “Zionist”. Both comments were held for moderation. I reposted them using the spelling “Zyahneest”. The comments were published. Apparently The Duran uses automated software to censor free discussion of Zionism. On April 22 I was again moderated, and my well-meaning comment, on a completely different topic, was deleted. I must be on a blacklist. So who owns The Duran?

Censorship Looms Over European Union

Quemado Institute editor Karl Pomeroy received a legal threat today in response to a comment he posted on the Russia Insider website about the rise of the R********d banking family. The comment did not mention race, but was of historical content. The threatener accused Karl of “spreading Nazi propaganda,” then repeated the full text of the German Criminal Code Section 130, which outlaws inciting “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins,” which Karl’s comment did not do. A similar law, it was claimed, is now in force in 11 other European countries and carries a penalty of up to five years. The wording of the law is so vague, it could be applied to any criticism of those in power. If a political analyst can accidentally “violate” this totalitarian decree, there is no freedom of speech or press in Europe.
