Media Appearance

Dr. Ammar Kahf appeared on TRT World's "Strait Talk" to mark the 13th anniversary of the Syrian revolution. In the discussion, Dr. Kahf outlined the transformation of the Syrian uprising over the past 13 years to a regional and international conflict. He described the current situation as one where Syrian territory is fragmented with a threatening expansion of local and rogue non-state actors. Politically, the Syrian political process is witnessing a deadlock among its international backers. Furthermore, Bashar Al-Assad continued to prove himself as a source of instability to regional security order and to borders of neighboring countries especially Turkey and Jordan. Assad has not adhered to regional expectations for stabilization and has not responded positively to diplomatic overtures, with Arab normalization efforts so far failing to alter his stance significantly on security and the peace process.
