The Crisis Committee has received, in the third day of its work, an upgrade on the crisis situation in Syria.
Daesh attacked a Syrian base, entering into the possession of chemical weapons. A video with a terrifying message was released: the mass destruction ammunition will be used in an attack against Turkey and the Army of Conquest.
Without a quick intervention plan on how they could get the chemical weapons back and how to crush the base, Daesh could carry out their destructive plan.
Following the Daesh video, Crisis Committee received a short visit from the Secretary General of the United Nations, in order to clarify a misunderstanding that was on going in the committee.
The Secretary General clearly stated that the Crisis Committee delegates should focus and work together on the specific crisis – “the crisis is your agenda, play with what you have inside here” and not on bilateral agreements.
Different motions were raised by every delegate in order to reach as fast as possible a common solution for solving the crisis.
With a great need of support, Turkey has already asked the United States and the United Nations for a collaboration in securing their borders. Turkey claimed about the Assad regime “that it is completely incompetent”, and should be overthrown.
Malaysia stated that Turkey should secure its own borders, sparking in a small conflict of opinions in regard to the Turkish attacks on the Kurds.
Seeking solutions for the crisis, Japan drew attention to the fact that “the Syrian government is not as felxible as we thought and it does not accept foreign interventions in their territories”, while China made its statement heard, coming with the idea of a rapid air strike on the Syrian base claimed by Daesh.
Iran and Jordan emphasized that a possible collaboration with the Syrian government would be very advantageous along with the necessity of special military ground actions and not only air strikes. When Egypt stressed out the need of a strategy to place special intelligence forces operations to attack the base, the United States had no hesitation in offering the necessary services to end the present crisis in Syria.
