“Will collaborate with Assad to the last day. Because he understands that Syria has a large military base. RF it is very necessary to influence other Arab countries. Russia wants to destabilize Ukraine through Donbass. And in Syria want to have their base to protect their interests in front of all the Arab countries. They can tomorrow to leave Ukraine and nothing bad to them will not. But to leave Syria is a disaster,” said Smart.

The impact can be so strong that the DPRK it will not survive. But the readiness of North Korea is not a myth. Do have nuclear weapons. See this in the emission of radiation,” – said the analyst.

“For many years closely (Russia. – Ed.) with North Korea. Because they always do as it wants the Russian Federation. Even the recent North Korean President was born there. Now the benefit of Russia that is in opposition to the United States. Not for its own interest and against the interests of the United States,” added Smart.
