Paulo Portas, in his opinion in the “Global” space, warns that the conflict in the Middle East, last week, gave more reasons for concern than hope.
On the one hand, the commentator in Jornal Nacional says that the Cairo Peace Conference “failed,” either because it had “too many countries” or “lack of time,” and emphasized “Egypt’s insurmountable position as mediator and partner in the future solution.” .
Also on the military level, there is another situation that Portas considered “worrying,” which is the US Navy’s interception of at least three missiles coming from Yemen towards Israel. He added, “This means that they came from militias close to Iran, and this means the possible internationalization of the conflict.”
Paulo Portas also stressed that Israel had to make the Damascus and Aleppo airports, at least partly, unusable to prevent the transfer of weapons, “In addition, the United States transferred to the region reinforcements of anti-aircraft capabilities.” He added: “All of these are military signals that indicate an escalation of conditions rather than control.”
The commentator also asserts that “Russia is the biggest beneficiary of this conflict without doing anything, because it is clearly distracting from the conflict in Ukraine,” but this is not a good sign, nor is the tone with which Iran is putting pressure on Hezbollah — “because if Direct entry into the conflict means its expansion. It is not good for Lavrov to go to Tehran, especially if he will encourage this expansion.”
