 Foreign media said France has big ambitions in the Middle East.


As a sign of a new stage in President Masons term, France joined the United States and Britain in April 14th to launch 105 missiles in Syrias 3 military installations related to the use of chemical weapons. Donald Trump, 41, became the youngest president of French history in May 2017, saying he had persuaded American president Donald Trump to carry out a strike action against Syria after a suspected chemical attack on the former rebel stronghold of Duma, and stayed there for a long time. According to rescue and medical personnel, dozens of people were killed by suspected chemical weapons attacks. 10 days ago, President Trump said the United States had an obligation to withdraw troops from Syria, he said in a two hour live interview with Frances BFM television channel. We convince him that it is necessary to stay in Syria for a long time. He also said he was willing to play the role of the mediator between the United States and Russia, a powerful ally of President Bashar Assad of Syria, and to find a sustainable political solution in Syria. He had previously offered to act as a middleman in the long term conflict and set up an international contact group to restart the stagnant Geneva peace talks. The picture is the president of France Despite the high tension between the West and Russia, France has managed to maintain a relatively good relationship with Russia, Agatha Demarais, an economist at the economist think tank, told Al Jazeera. He will visit St Petersburg in June, where he will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, she said. As far as this is concerned, we are very interesting to note that the Russian military has not mentioned Frances participation in air strikes against Syria, which may be trying to safeguard the bilateral relations between France and Russia. Although the April 14th attack was his first important military decision since he took office, it was not the first time the young leader had intervened in the conflict and crisis abroad for the first time. In his first major foreign policy speech after his inauguration, Mr Ma said, France is no longer in the middle of the mid 70s of the last century, when France could say: I am a middle country, protected and supported by a big country with common values. France must become a powerful country again. It is very necessary. An extreme opportunist Analysts say, in recent years, France has been timed to military intervention in conflicts in Africa, such as Libya, Mali and the Central African Republic, but it has only recently become an important diplomatic force in the Middle East. Olivier Gita, the managing director of geopolitical risk consultancy global strategy group, said: Ma is an extreme opportunist. He is filling the vacuum left by the United States and Britain in the Middle East, allowing France to act as a Russian like offensive player in this region. De Mars agreed: France will be keen to play a power broker in the Middle East in the coming months. France played an important role as a mediator in January 2017 when Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri abruptly resigned while visiting Saudi Arabia. Hariri blamed his resignation on the interference of Lebanese affairs by Iran and its allies, Lebanon, and expressed concern about assassination. However, many analysts suspect that Saudi Arabia forced him to resign in order to punish his weak position against Lebanese Hezbollah. Meanwhile, the Lebanese leaders claimed Saudi Arabia held hostage Hariri, and Saudi Arabia accused the Lebanese government of declaring war on its own because of the provocation of the Lebanese Hezbollah. Because there is a very close relationship between the French and the Hariri families, he said, he positioned himself as a deal maker and was winning points on the geopolitical scoreboard. In December 2017, after Trump announced that he would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, he received the president of the Palestinian national authority, Mahmoud Abbas. Mr Ma expressed support for Abbas, in return, who declared that the United States could not continue to participate in the affairs of the land and called on France to take the role of a new leader in the peace process. We trust you, Abbas said. We respect your efforts and we are deeply looking forward to your efforts. He wants to talk to everyone In early December, when the French president visited Qatar to discuss the sale of 12 French made gust fighters, he used this opportunity to try to mediate the ongoing Gulf diplomatic crisis. This is one of the most serious disputes between Arabia countries in recent years. In June last year, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain severed their diplomatic relations with Qatar and imposed the embargo on the sea, land and air in fact. These countries accuse Qatar of financing terrorism and maintain close ties with their regional rival, Iran. Qatar has repeatedly denied the accusations. In the Gulf region, I hope that the Gulf states can make a commitment to reconcile, as I said at the beginning of the crisis, Ma said, repeating the call for an embargo to be cancelled as soon as possible. MC avoided the hostility between the two sides of the crisis, but he has established a deepening relationship with the United Arab Emirates, which he feels more consistent with his pace, he said. Mark dragon is making clear that he wants to talk with everyone in this area in order to advance the French agenda and position.
