For its part, Al-Arab newspaper said in this regard: "Four major capitals, namely Washington, Paris, London, Berlin, demanded the Syrian regime and its Russian and Iranian allies to stop the massacres in Syria.
On the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the Syrian revolution, the four members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) stressed that 9 years ago the Syrian people took to the streets to demand their legitimate rights, but the Assad regime responded to it with violence, torture and arbitrary arrests.

He established the political system they are leading, following the unprecedented wave of popular protests that the country has been witnessing since last October.
Under the leadership of the Justice and Development Party leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey took a new course in its foreign policy that mimics Iranian interference in the affairs of the countries of the region, revealing real aspirations in weak Arab countries that are reluctant to foreign interventions such as Syria, Libya, Qatar and Sudan, and expanding its ambitions to include interference in Yemen and establishing real influence has political, military and economic in Iraq.
And just like Tehran, Ankara is working to use the local agents in Iraq by soliciting elements from the political class that have always shown voluntarism to work in the interests of external parties, as long as those parties have guaranteed their material and political interests.
Turkey relies in Iraq on Sunni leaders and political figures who are mostly dissatisfied with Shiite domination of the reins of government, and focuses in particular on those with Brotherhood affiliations such as elements and leaders of the Islamic Party, as well as on Turkmen leaders who often profess loyalty to Turkey.
