Solution proposal for confrontation in Syria – Christoph Hörstel 2020-2-24

solution
This solution proposal is based on nine years intensive involvement for Syria with: Syrian, Russian, Turkish officials and Iranian, Russian, Turkish media.
While all sides are advancing in the logics of war, another way to address the worries and grievances of all sides appears possible – and highly recommended:
1 All sides stop all military advances for three months
2 this time window will be used to:
– Syria changes its policies towards its adversaries as to significantly reduce refugee numbers
— transition rules, safety guarantees, amnesty
— withdrawal of YPG from Turkish borders
— stop all arms deliveries to YPG by USA
— three year delay on service in the SAA for all returning refugees – civil social services may be required
– EU finally makes payments due to Turkey in aid of refugees
— stops all military and secret service involvement
— starts humanitarian aid to the region – ensuring with Turkish support: reception by civil population – not militants
– Turkey stops all arms shipments to HTS and other militant forces on Syrian soil
3 meaningful direct talks between Turkey and Syria
– to be continued as measures under 1) and 2) are continued successfully
