Expert: Putin showed great respect for Suleymani


One of the main topics of discussion in the world in the early days of 2020 is the killing by the Americans of the IRGC General of Iran. The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Suleymani, was killed in an air attack while he was in a car with one of the commanders of the Shiite militia in Iraq.


Many experts believe that this elimination of the Iranian general and the man who commanded the Shiite militia in Iraq in the fight against ISIS (a terrorist group banned in Russia) can lead to more than negative consequences not only for the Middle East, but also for the whole world.

Shamil Sultanov, president of the Russia-Islamic World Center for Strategic Studies, sets out his thoughts on this subject for the Day TV channel.

The expert talks about the personality of General Kassem Suleimani. Sultanov says that Suleimani carried out special missions in the Middle East, conducted active military and diplomatic activities in neighboring countries with Iran, including Iraq and Syria.

Shamil Sultanov:

It was Kassem Suleimani who led the fight against terrorists in Syria. On this basis, he became close to Putin. Putin showed great attention and respect for Suleimani. They met several times. Kassem Suleimani played an important role in the creation of (anti-terrorism) popular militias.

    I felt funny. The author wrote that Putin showed great attention and respect to Suleimani. I thought. that it’s only Venediktov who knows what Putin is thinking, what Venediktov publicly admitted. But no. Another expert on Putin’s thoughts has appeared.

      In fact, the president of the Russia-Islamic World strategic research center, Shamil Sultanov, could well communicate with Putin and Suleimani together or separately

      Well, Suleimani was respected throughout the Middle East. The figure was significant. And our deployment of troops to Syria began in the year 15 after Suleimani flew to Moscow. It is difficult to say with whom he spoke now. It seems like he met with Putin and Shoigu. Our entry into Syria was agreed with the Persians through Suleimani. He was a mediator in many negotiations.
      For Persia, it was a figure of the Molotov caliber for the USSR. It is quite possible that Suleymani respected GDP. But he was unlikely to share this with the expert. request

    Well, at least don’t fasten the GDP here - otherwise it’s always the case with us, it’s some kind of malachal to shoot the Austrian Archduke, and then take offense in Russia ... laughing But at least there were little brothers - there was nowhere to go!

      Interestingly, someone’s war with someone is a threat to Russia - a threat to Russia, and this can result in a full-scale war is not that.

      Eugene hi , Suleimani has already passed the stage of the "game", now a picture is emerging who politically benefited from this situation winked . And here, Putin and K "go to the finals." And where are the “cool" analysts who did not predict this? request So they begin to gradually "see" ... yes

    Apparently, Suleimani was indeed the central figure on whom the interests of many countries participating in the events in B. Vostok were tied, the equivalent of which is difficult to find, if at all possible. Apparently this person could not only agree, but what’s not unimportant and carry out what was agreed upon, which is now worth a lot, and therefore had political weight and respect. Obviously not from mattresses with which any agreements are not worth the paper on which they were signed.

      He drove for the most part Persian intelligence abroad, almost all allied Persian groups, and through him went a significant part of Iranian foreign policy. Through it went communication with all BV and ours in Syria. Coordinator Man. But of course it was better to watch out.

    Expert: Putin showed great respect for Suleymani
    I don’t know how GDP is, but it’s very likely that for Shiites he’s what Che is for “leftists”

    Probably ... It was a collective decision. It will be hard for the Iranians there. Arabs also seem to be in the subject.
    But the Iranians were warned more than once or twice ... Moderate your appetites.

      Then Russia. For he was killed just for the fight against ISIS and Al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq. It was the Iranians and militias who were assembled by the general and repelled the first onslaught of the Barmaleans. If not in the subject, then at least be silent. I think that Putin knew of course about him, and gave instructions to the general on his account, but maybe I’m mistaken, I have not heard about their meeting?

      Pavel! Enough is enough !!! Maybe they were warned by the bombardment of trucks and warehouses of the IRGC in Syria. But the truth is, you can run into an otvetka. And the USA will not save!

    It’s a sacred matter for an expert to attach to any Putin’s business, otherwise they may think that iksperd is not in trend ... Even if he knew, respected, and met, then what? Can’t you do without Putin’s pulling to the topic? It is evident to the expert that there was nothing more to say on the topic.

    But maybe the Brigadier mentioned somewhere that he was paying attention to Hadji Kassem, that he had heard from someone, but that respect was clear. This became known when the people of Kassem saved the second pilot from the SU-24.

    Interestingly, is the GDP going to make a public statement and condemn the actions of the United States, or is it enough “concern” in a telephone conversation with Macron? Is it okay to kill leaders of other countries?
