Over the past couple of years there have been proposals (from Qatar backed by the West) for an oil pipeline from Saudi-Arabia through Jordan and Syria into Turkey (and Europe). This, proposed, pipeline would strengthen the US and weaken Russia’s position on the global oil market because Europe currently heavily relies on Russian natural gas for fuel. Assad rejected these plans and instead proposed (and started constructing) his own pipeline going through Iran and Iraq. This oil pipeline instead will do the opposite by strengthening Russia’s position due to their alliance with Iraq, Iran and Assad.
