In this regard the newspaper reported"The tripartite meeting to be held in Israel this month, in which John Bolton, the US national security adviser, is taking part, Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Russian National Security Council, and Meir Ben-Shabbat, Israel's national security adviser, will be one of the most important meetings on the Syrian conflict, or at least on the report of this conflict in the next stage. "
"First of all, the two major parties, the United States and Russia, are meeting together for the first time with a specific regional party to discuss the Syrian issue, while the previous meetings were limited to one or two regional parties, For example, the tripartite agreement of Astana, which includes Russia, Iran and Turkey.
Second, Israel is not only participating in this meeting, it is also hosting it, not to mention that it has become a bond between the two major parties and rapporteurs in Syrian affairs, suggesting that it has a central position in this tripartite framework. "
Turkey deviate away from the EU path
As for the deteriorating situation in Turkey, Al-Arab newspaper said: "The reports issued by the European Union on Turkey over the past years are not as interesting as they have been in the past due to several reasons, the most important of which are the negotiations between Turkey and the European Union, the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's insistence on a violation of the rule of law and human rights dissipate Turkey's dream of membership in the European Union.
"Despite the severity of the report issued by the European Union this year, but few newspapers have devoted space to talk about it, which reveals the Turkish regime's dominance of the local media and undermine the freedom of expression, the European report confirms the decline in a number of areas - the presidential system, which has recently been introduced in the country. This means that Erdogan, as head of state and the first to establish the foundations of the presidential system, was the subject of talk in a number of points contained in this report."Facebook4TwitterWhatsAppTelegram
