5:02 am
president bush's visit shows his country's commitment to resolving crises affecting the reach him. a little bailout from what i said to what the visit reflects the circumstances and crisis experienced by many arab countries and our commitment to find new approaches to arab action based on respect for the sovereignty of states no need to fear this in its affairs and is not just a don several our countries have recently indicated they may be willing to normalize relations with the syrian government in early october president assad gave his first interview to a gulf based newspaper since twenty eleven he told the kuwaiti paper that western and arab delegations had already begun work to resume diplomatic and economic ties just a week prior to that bahrain's foreign minister a surprise observers by embracing his syrian counterpart widely down while i'm on the sidelines of the un general assembly in new york and even neighboring israel has taken steps towards improving relations with the assad regime is kinetic
5:03 am
crossing in the occupied golan heights was possibly reopened in mid october under russian military supervision jordan also reopened the crossing into syria that say months back turkey is the last major backer of the syrian opposition helping them hold a part of northern syria but its foreign minister now says ankara is prepared to engage with damascus if the government held and one free and fair elections over this will be able to walk the eligible ones in syria on all sides of syria including the refugees in my country and neighboring countries and in other countries to resettle in the last seven years and it has to be a very credible one transparent democratic and further elections and then at the end syrian people will decide who is going to rule the country after this election if it is a democratic elections and if it is
5:04 am
a credible one then over that should consider the. me is director of the center for middle east studies at the university of denver he says our camp countries want to curtail iran's influence in syria. well i think they're trying to perhaps woohoo assad away from his alliance with iran. the number one priority for the assad regime today after crushing all opposition to his rule is economic reconstruction the west is not going to invest in that economic reconstruction but there are very wealthy arab states that do have the resources the financial resources and so i suspect part of the agenda here is to see whether they that whether you know bashar al assad can be influenced financially. with reconstruction aid in exchange for weakening his alliance with iran you know
5:05 am
if it wasn't for the wrongs. participation in the horrific war in syria over the last you know seven years bashar al assad would not be alive today he certainly would be in power so you ron has a huge amount of influence i don't think at the end of the day that bashar assad will break his alliance with iran and switch sides but i think what's i think much more fundamental and i think what's uniting bashar al assad with other. arab states in the region is that bashar al assad and other leaders of the arab states in the middle east share a common national security concern and that national security concern is fear of their own populations fear of democracy fear of political change so in that sense they have a very common sort of set of concerns that they that they're trying to fight and push back against meanwhile the e.u. has warned turkey against taking any further action in syria take president bush up

5:07 am
that are perceived by washington as the main partner in the struggle against isis and that are supported also by another branch in the american administration so there's an interim american farther off of the negotiation or out of the question but there's also a grander picture that has to do with the global on the standing between washington on cut off on many famous lot of them are have to do with north of syria a lot of them have to do with syria such in front of them have to do with biodata redemptions for example in the in the hours that. we were witnessing distension over many days there were probably truck stations between president trump and president of the down about the expulsion order extradition or for the high level then from the u.s. so everything is now between the country. a kurdish on group has claimed responsibility for a car bomb attack in the northern syrian city of a free in which killed at least eight people the city was under kurdish control

5:10 am
