"Break the blockade of Russia and Iran": The Chinese press praised the joint maneuvers of the fleets of the two countries

24

A joint Iranian-Russian naval exercise was held on February 15, 2021 in the northern Indian Ocean. As officially stated, they were tasked with strengthening regional security and expanding bilateral cooperation.


At the same time, a columnist for the Chinese publication China Military believes that the purpose of the maneuvers of the "two traditional allies" was to demonstrate mutual support in the fight against global challenges, especially the threats from the United States. Recently, the head of the White House, Biden, has stepped up the anti-Moscow agenda, trying to form a united front against the Russian Federation with key NATO members - Britain, France and Germany.

Under these conditions, Russia urgently needed a demarche to fight back and break through the containment system, the blockade of the two countries.

- the Chinese author assessed the said maneuvers, believing that the Kremlin intends to "kill two birds with one stone" - to force Washington to dialogue and "break the blockade in the Middle East, demonstrating masterful strategic dexterity."

In his words, Iran "also needs Russia's help" amid a sharp cooling of relations with the United States and a number of countries in the Middle East.

Arrival of the Russian flotilla became the strong support given to Tehran, which announced that the joint exercises proved that Moscow is its most reliable strategic ally

- the observer notes.

      If we could create an Asian anti-NATO block:
      Russia, China, Iran - the countries which the States have called their main enemies. And if China and India - two Buddhist countries cease to be at enmity and begin to closely cooperate - such a counterbalance is formed that the States will forget about the third world ...

            Well, then Russia would have enough power to incinerate NATO on its own and without the help of these allies. Another thing is important here, namely, the presence of allied states in the zone of interests of mattresses in Russia.

        it is worth considering the block of victims of US aggression
        about 80 countries will work out.

    There was no need to fit into the anti-Iranian sanctions, you see, and you would have received a couple of three profitable defense orders from the Persians. And then the Vedmedev went on a leash with the USA, "forgetting" that Russia is also under sanctions from the Yankees!

        Why should the Chinese be friends with us? They have a powerful economy and a large army, and they also need new territories. And here the Far East is not involved. Think about their strategic interests.

    And what remains to be done when you are pressed from all sides. Trying to unite with those whom the Americans have already gotten with their containment and sanctions, just like us. And of course, it will never hurt to light up your pennants in this region, and even during joint exercises.

    The Stoyky corvette, the Kola tanker and the Yakov Grebelsky sea tug set off on a long voyage from Baltiysk on December 16, 2020.
    In September 2020, the Iranian Navy took part in one of the episodes of the Russian strategic exercise Kavkaz-2020 - in the Caspian Sea. Iranian ships worked out anti-terrorist tasks together with the ships of the Caspian Flotilla of the Russian Federation.

    Moscow is his most reliable strategic ally

    In general, such words are dear. Especially from the lips of China.
    Syria will confirm that it was not "surrendered". And the Prime Minister of Armenia will confirm how he went wrong in this direction.
