“Our good allies are empowering enemies. Why don’t we start by ending the funding of terrorist groups? That would lay them to rest,” said Jill Stein, the Green Party’s 2012 candidate for US president.
Green Party’s candidate in the 2016 US presidential election said that Russia and the United States could ban weapon supplies to the Middle East and make Turkey close its borders with Syria and Iraq in a joint effort to defeat Daesh. (Islamic State)
Stein in Russia calls for principled collaboration
In Moscow, Presidential Candidate Stein Calls For US Foreign Policy of Principled Collaboration Rather than Lawless Domination
(MOSCOW) United States foreign policy in the Middle East is failing badly because it is built upon a futile quest for military and economic domination, according to Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.
Speaking as part of a panel of foreign policy experts at a forum organized by the RT news network, Stein said that solutions to problems such as jihadi terrorism would require Russia and the United States to work together, shedding outdated cold war attitudes that prevented collaboration on problems facing both nations…
Stein continued, “Tomorrow I will meet with the foreign affairs chair of the Duma, the lower house of the Russian Parliament, to explore whether Russia would be receptive to a more collaborative approach to foreign policy that I have been talking about in my presidential campaign. Citizens of our countries and the world deserve a new commitment to collaborative dialogue between our governments to avert disastrous wars for geopolitical domination, destruction of the climate, and cascading injustices that promote violence and terrorism. Opening such a dialogue would be a first step towards real progress on the interlocking threats that both nations – and the world – are facing.”
