External Actors in Syria II: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel

KAS and MdF host workshop on influence, aims and strategies

The eighth round of Geneva talks on Syria has failed. The civil war in the country will continue. External actors have played a crucial role in the conflict. While Russia announced a partial withdrawal in December, Iran continues to be the largest backer of the Assad regime. On 29 November, the KAS Syria/Iraq office and Maison du Futur held a workshop on the influence of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar – hitherto the largest backers of the opposition – as well as Israel. A workshop on the Russian-Iranian intervention had already taken place in December 2016.
