Russians denounce anew Oil Smuggling from Syria to Turkey, used to buy Arms for Islamist Terrorists

* Russia's Chief of Staff, General Valery Gerassimov, reportedly denounced anew regular Trucks' convoys smuggling Oil from Eastern Syria to Turkey, that would be used to buy Weapons for Islamist Terrorists, as ISIS etc, according to Press Agencies, including Sputnik, Xinhua, etc.


Turkish Military Airplanes have notoriously shot down more than one Russian Plane helping the Syrian Government against various Armed Islamist Extremists, killing at least 2 Russian Pilots, by hitting them behind the back, while they thought that Ankara was Neutral. And this was followed even by a Cold-Blood Murder of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, later-on, by an armed Policeman there.


But Erdogan strived to convince Putin, later on, that this was due to political opponents who afterwards staged a failed Coup (allegedly "for Peace") on June 2016, managing to make Moscow even help the Turkish Army to penetrate around the Syrian Region of Idlib, where most Islamist Extremists had gathered recently, after a series of advances by Damascus' Government throughout the Country.


However, Turkey reportedly failed, nowadays, to honor its part of a Deal with Russia on Idlib's future, which implied a progressive Withdrawal and/or Disarmament of Violent Islamist Extremists from at least a first Part of that Region, and the establishment of a Demilitarized Zone, guarded partly by Turkey and partly by Russia.


Instead, a part of them were, reportedly, transported elsewhere, inside Turkey, while such Armed Islamist Extremists re-started to Attack the Syrian Army.


A mainstream Chief Press Editor, Dundar, and his investigative Journalist, had been persecuted, briefly jailed, and afterwards anew "wanted" by the Turkish Authorities, for having reported, previously, on Weapons' deliveries by Turkey to Violent Islamist Groups in Syria, publishing Photos of Truck-smuggled Rockets, etc.


Dundar was given Asylum in Germany, and was awarded several Prizes in France, in Strasbourg and elsewhere, met with Officials in Paris, EU Parliament, etc, until recently.


Turkish President Erdogan, when he was recently questioned by a French Journalist on such Arms' Deliveries to Violent Islamist Groups inside Syria, avoided to reply on that point, and prefered, instead, to denounce US New President Don Trump's reported deliveries of Arms to the Kurdish Minority in Syria, in order to Struggle against ISIS and other such Islamist Terrorists.

        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.
