    The Russian, Iranian and Turkish leaders held a major meeting on Syria in Sochi, and the US wasn't invited.


    It's a complicated question whether this meeting was a message to Washington that the Americans are out of the peace process in Syria. But the fact is that Russia, Turkey and Iran have proved their efficiency in solving the Syrian crisis. The three countries have prevented Syria from falling into the abyss of a "chronic civil war" like the one currently tearing Libya apart, professor Paulo Botta of the Complutense University of Madrid told Sputnik. At the same time, the presence of American troops in this Middle Eastern country remains questionable, as Damascus has repeatedly called the US presence in Syria an "invasion" and "aggression."
