EPOS Insights

In the following exclusive article for EPOS, Idrees Mohammed argues that the struggle for Syria is largely related to the pipeline politics and gas geopolitics. The United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar have supported the removal of Assad; however, Russia, Iran, and Iraq have supported Assad to remain in power. Both of those who are for and against the removal of Assad have opposite interests that are related to pipelines and gas market. The former group looks for a friendly post-Assad regime that will facilitate their objective; the latter group is just entirely against this scenario. Idrees Mohammed is an expert in International Relations and Kurdish affairs. His MA thesis was on Turkey's policy towards Kurdistan Region. He is a PhD candidate at University of Erfurt, Germany. He was a former lecturer in International Relations at University of Duhok, Kurdistan Region

On Saturday 19 September, US Secretary of State John Kerry finally announced that Assad could not go immediately, if a negotiation process would require him to stay in the medium term. Most significantly, he spelled out what was unutterable even a couple of weeks ago in the foreign policy corridors: "let's do it with Iran and Russia". Are times finally becoming ripe for dumping the whole architecture of current US and EU policies towards Syria and resetting our stances? In this exclusive article for EPOS, Giuseppe Provenzano, an MA student at the School of Government at LUISS University and expert in MENA affairs and "Shia Crescent" issues, focuses on the question giving our readers an interesting point of view
