DEBKAfile: Trump-Putin summit up in the air over unfinished Syria deal No. 2

The uncertainty surrounding a possible face to face between Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin at the APAC summit in Vietnam Friday was caused by the failure of US-Russian diplomatic teams to finish in time their secret negotiations on a fresh deal for Syria’s future. This is reported by DEBKAfile’s sources.  While the White House spokesman said no formal sit-down was scheduled, Putin’s spokesman said that it would take place one way or another. When they met in Da Nang Friday, they shook hands warmly, then separated.

DEBKAfile’s sources disclose that the two teams are making an all-out effort to hammer out a draft accord for presenting to Trump and Putin at the second Asian summit they are attending in the Philippines. Since the US and Russian presidents clinched their first deal on Syria five months ago in Hamburg, the war on ISIS has come to a virtual end and their agreement calls for expansion. As things stand now, Russia backs the Assad regime and its allies, Iran and Hizballah, while they are pitted against the Syrian factions supported by the United States, which are against Assad and his allies.

    Russia is Gog of the northern confederacy and Iran (Persia) is part of that as Ezekiel tells us.
    2* Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
    3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
    4* And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
    5* Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
    6* Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee. Ezekiel 38
    USA is the major player in the Southern Confederacy.
    13* Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Ezekiel 38
    Watch out for Armageddon. Rev. 16:16
    And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
