British Foreign Secretary William Hague, whose country has a long hand in interfering in other countries’ internal affairs, is seeking to kill any hope of possible talks between Syrians even before they start.
In a statement to parliament, Hague exposed a conspiracy in-the-making by telling MPs “there is a real risk that the Assad regime [the government of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad] will not negotiate seriously.
The Foreign Secretary also threatened the Syrian government by moaning that “no option is off the table”, and that the UK government would keep mounting pressure on the European Union to lift an arms embargo against foreign-backed terrorists fighting the Syrian government forces.
“We must make clear that if the regime does not negotiate seriously at the Geneva conference, no option is off the table, Hague said. “There remains a serious risk that the Assad regime will not negotiate seriously.”
Hague has resorted to the old threatening tone, even when the Syrian government and true opposition forces in the country are unanimous in calls for finding a diplomatic Syria-Syria solution to the conflict.
Furthermore, Russia and the United States have agreed to convene an international conference to address the crisis in Syria. But hostile governments including Britain and some regional countries in the Middle East have shown that they are resolute in toppling the popular government of Syria in their desperate attempts to break the popular resistance front against the Zionist regime of Israel and the global arrogance.
An entire package of European sanctions against Syria expires on June 1. Hague said that he would use the opportunity to lift an arms embargo against rebels.
“The case for further amendments to the arms embargo on Syria is compelling in order to increase the pressure on the regime,” he said.
