Squaring the Circle...

Question:  Wouldn't it be imperative to obtain at least tacit approval from both principals in this matter? Given the longstanding enmity between them, acceptance of so radical a departure from familiar norms and customs of warfare seems doubtful in the extreme.

Answer:  Curiously enough, agreement on the issue need not be a mandatory requirement here. In fact, both parties could initially ignore the whole procedure and continue on much as before. However, there comes a time when the areas of land so designated must reach something of a critical mass. At such a point, one side or the other might very well decide to go with what's on offer. Holding such clear and universal title to any major tract of this much disputed territory might prove progressively more and more difficult to resist. Thereafter, further violence becomes increasingly untenable. Fighting against a conventional enemy is all very well - but when that enemy is also a mathematical construct, the numbers themselves soon begin to outweigh all other considerations.

Wow Obummer even committed treason against the people of the United States by funding rebels. He extorted our money, lied, so he could arm the Free Syrian Army.
