War in Syria: Not for money, but for idea?2012-11-29 15:17
Coordinator of the Libyan "National Coordinating Committee for Democratic Change" abroad Heysam Manaa, commenting on the upcoming meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, has complained that Turkey allowed Sudanese mercenaries penetrating into Syria. A few hours earlier, one of the websites supporting Caucasian underground, has published an article of the Pakistani newspaper about Chechen mujahideen fighting in Syria. The Big Caucasus asked the experts about mercenaries' guidelines: the money or ideas?
The representatives of the Syrian opposition "National Coordinating Committee for Democratic Change" (NCC) arrived yesterday in Moscow for talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The NCC is not part of the "National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces", recognized by a number of countries, and is essentially the only opposition group with which the Kremlin is now ready to negotiate. The coordinator of the NCC abroad Heysam Manaa, who has also arrived in Moscow with the delegation, said that the Committee had not joined the coalition, since "any Syrian democrat feels bad thing when he hears that someone is the sole representative of the Syrian people". In addition, Manaa accused Ankara of the fact that it allowed the Saudi mercenaries penetrating into Syria.
"Unfortunately, there are political players, such as Turkey, allowing them (the Saudi mercenaries - Ed.) entering Syria. And the goal here is not only Syria. Our country is only a link in the whole chain. Now the leadership of the new National Coalition, established in Doha, is awaiting the fall of Bashar al-Assad in order to send its Saudi mercenaries from Syria to other countries", Manana said in an interview to the Voice of Russia.
It is curious that on the background of these statements a website supporting Caucasian underground has published translated article of the newspaper Pakistani Christian Post about "Chechen Islamists fighting in Syria". Having told about the actions of some hired Chechens the Christian edition states that Moscow was concerned of this activity since "the situation in the Caucasus could aggravate again" because the Chechen mujahideen "receive weapons and money". The source of funding, according to the publication, is Turkey.
"The fact that the militants, who fought in Chechnya, today move to Syria has been officially confirmed by the Syrian authorities", said the former diplomat, orientalist Vyacheslav Matuzov in an interview to the Big Caucasus. "They are fighting there along with Afghan, Pakistani, Libyan and Qatari mercenaries. And in principle, the militants can penetrate into Syria only with the permission of the Turkish security forces. I believe that Turkey is the base not only for the anti-Syrian forces, but also for anti-Russian activities over the past two decades. I can't believe that such khattabs of Jordanian or Saudi origin get in Russia without the knowledge of the Turkish security forces. This contradicts the logic".
