Iran and Russia: priorities for cooperationIn recent days, a lot of reports have appeared in the press about the development of cooperation between Iran and Russia. Politicians, analysts and journalists note that there are a number of areas in which Tehran could further strengthen stable relations with Moscow, considering the deepening of cooperation not only strategically important, but also a priority.


Maria Kochetova (Parliamentary Newspaper) quotes the words of the first secretary of the Iranian embassy, ​​Sayed Ghasem Zakeri: “Russia depends on the West economically. When there was no embargo, we agreed with Russia on the construction of a nuclear power plant in Bushehr. Today, if the sanctions are lifted, we will once again begin to actively cooperate with Russia in many areas. ” According to the diplomat, the most promising cooperation between the two states is the development of infrastructure.

“Russia and Iran can complement each other in the energy sector. An example of this is the Gas OPEC Summit, which will be held next week in Moscow, ”says Zachery. He said about the development of tourism: "For example, the Persian island of Kish is much more beautiful than the Egyptian Sharm el-Sheikh."

Syed Gacem Zakeri emphasized that Iran wants to join the SCO, but would never want to join NATO.

In another note on the Iranian-Russian theme of M. Kochetov (Parliamentary Newspaper) writes that Zakeri told reporters about the common spiritual values ​​of Iran and Russia. “Any of our ambassadors working in Moscow, upon returning to Iran, says that Islamic and Orthodox values ​​are close,” the diplomat said.

In his opinion, in the relations of the two countries it is now necessary to exclude the “role of the third factor”.

“Russia is of strategic importance in the new president’s foreign policy. The priority of Hassan Rouhani is the creation of trusting relations between Russia and Iran and our closest neighbors, ”comrade Zakeri emphasized.

He further recalled that Russia is the “most stable” partner of Iran, but the situation in other neighboring countries — Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan — is far from stability.

“The new president is ready to work with the IAEA and with the Five plus One group. In addition, the stabilization of relations with the West will help our relations with Russia, ”said the first secretary of the IRI embassy.

As noted by Alexey Baliev ("File-RF"), congratulating Hassan Rouhani on his victory in the presidential election, Vladimir Putin stressed readiness for the ongoing development of mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields. Deepening relations with Russia is likely to become one of the foreign policy priorities of the head of the IRI, said Rajab Safarov, director general of the Center for the Study of Modern Iran.

Russia is important to Iran “as a serious player in solving the problems of the Caspian Sea, as well as for the fastest possible entry into the SCO,” Rajab Safarov told the File-RF newspaper. “I spoke with Rouhani and I know: he is good to Russia.”

A positive outlook for the development of relationships is expressed in various projects. Georgy Kalamanov, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, and representatives of the economic departments of the Islamic Republic of Iran agreed to develop cooperation ties in mechanical engineering with a view to exporting joint products to the markets of neighboring countries. The total economic effect of projects may exceed 10 billions of dollars a year, half the amount - the profit of Russia.

As for imports from Russia, according to Comrade Kalamanov, Iran expressed interest in increasing imports of Russian mining and metallurgical equipment. In addition, the Iranians would like to create a joint production of electrical products. There is also a mutual desire to open joint research centers on the basis of the Isfahan Metallurgical Plant, built with the help of the USSR in the 1970-s.

At the moment, to finalize the projects, notes Aleksey Baliyev, a bilateral working group is being set up.

“We are talking primarily about the joint production of agricultural machinery, public transport and gas-diesel engines (including components and spare parts). At least 20 Russian enterprises will be involved in the cooperation, which will create at least 25 thousands of jobs. It is worth noting that up to 60% of the cost of Iranian imports from our country falls on high-tech products, and as new projects are implemented, this proportion will increase to 70 percent. The demand for agricultural machinery and transport is growing rapidly in neighboring states of the Commonwealth, Pakistan, and Iraq. The market for Russian-Iranian engineering products is vast, experts say. ”


The author of the material emphasizes that Tehran did not accidentally choose Russia as the main partner in joint engineering projects. The Iranian side believes that Russian products are “time tested,” differing not only in high quality, but also in reasonable prices.

As for other projects, with the Russian scientific and technological assistance, it is planned to build the Caspian-Persian Gulf shipping channel. The benefit of Russia here, the journalist notes, is that the path from the European part, from the Urals to the Indian Ocean basin (by comparison with the traditional route through the Bosporus - Dardanelles - Suez) will be reduced by half. None of the transportation of goods, Russia will be able to save at least 100 million dollars a year.

In an editorial "InoSMI"entitled "Iranian Media: History - The basis of the ties between Iran and Russia ”, provides an overview of the Iranian press 22-25 in June 2013.

The newspapers Farda and Hamshahri cited a response message from the new Iranian president, Vladimir Putin, which states that "Russia occupies a special place in Iran’s foreign policy" and that the new president hopes for "further development of bilateral cooperation", whose experience "historical meaning".

Farda draws attention to the sensitive issue of Russian-Iranian relations - Russia's refusal to supply C-300 in accordance with the UN resolution 2010 of the year. The newspaper writes about the Russian proposal to replace C-300 with a new export version - C-300ВМ “Antey-2500”. The issue emphasizes that such a proposal "is undoubtedly explained by Russia's desire to encourage Iran to withdraw its lawsuit against Russia from the international court in Geneva."

The Syrian issue is also touched on in the Iranian press. “Javan”, quoting Comrade Lavrov, states that with the “approach of the international Geneva-2 summit on Syria, there is an increase in Russian-American differences”; According to the publication, it is connected with the fact that the position of Russia lies in the “political approach” to solving the problem and using the “levers of regional diplomacy”, while the West prefers “the way of interfering in the internal affairs of a sovereign country”.

The Farda editions from 23.06 and 24.06 paid considerable attention to the cooperation of Iran and Russia in the field of sports. We are talking about the details of the agreement between the Russian football club "Rubin" (Kazan) and the leading Iranian club "Persepolis" (Tehran).

In another review of Iranian media (June 17-21) edition "InoSMI" cites material from Donya-e-Eqtesad, which notes Russia's increased interest in the purchase of Iranian oil (under the embargo by 27 of the EU countries). The publication writes about negotiations on this issue and states that it promises Russian black gold, more “advantageous” both in terms of quality and price, compared to oil from the countries of the Caspian basin, “unprecedented” dominance in the European oil market. However, analysts' comments, which predict the impossibility of returning Iranian oil to the “strategically important Mediterranean market” in the event of such a scenario, “cause concern”.

In the message Iran News from 19 June, however, it is noted that Iran is not negotiating with Russia on the sale of oil. This is reported by the ISNA news agency, citing a representative of the Iranian Ministry of Oil, Alireza Nikzad-Rahbar.

According to Comrade Nikzad-Rahbara, the necessary infrastructure is not available to deliver oil from Southern Iran to the coast of the Caspian Sea.

The note also indicates that Iranian news agency Mehr reported that Russia had expressed interest in importing Iranian oil and about the negotiations between Tehran and Moscow. Russian officials, according to this information, suggested laying a pipeline to supply oil from the southern fields of Iran to the coast of the Caspian Sea, and then deliver it to Russian oil terminals by tankers. In this regard, the article says, the National Iranian Oil Company began to deepen the bottom around the Neka oil terminal to enable the mooring of giant tankers.

Thus, cooperation between Russia and Iran promises to develop in various areas: technology, supply of defensive weapons, foreign policy, tourism, cooperation ties in mechanical engineering, joint production of electrical products, construction of the Caspian-Persian Gulf shipping channel, etc.

          Iran is neither Shiite nor Sunni.
          Iran is Persian.
          And he has his own suits. Persian. And interests.
          The Arab environment will never be allied to him.
          And Russia is interested in him no more than a transit route to the Chinese and European markets. Well, as the market itself.

        Friendship is a very high state of mind, it needs to be valued, it must be earned. And Iran is a very profitable partner for us geopolitically and economically, in fact, Russia is returning to a tsarist policy of rapprochement with Iran and this pleases and there are more prospects than you can even imagine imagine, if only Mendel and his comrades would not cheat raspberries ...

        Iran is a friendly country for Russia. The last war with Iran (then Persia), Russia waged 1826 — 1828. But in 1909 — 1911 Russia itself carried out military intervention against it. In the 40 of the 20 century, a limited contingent of Soviet troops was even deployed there. Now Iran is included in 10 among Russia's leading trading partners, and it is with the help of Russia that Iran has been developing its nuclear program with 1992.
        Every sober-minded person understands that the development of the nuclear program in Iran is connected with the desire to preserve its independence and prevent the attack of P. Indostan and his allies against the background of its increasingly powerful world domination. Moreover, there are more than enough examples of protruding P.indostan in the role of world gendarme. But the most piquant thing in this situation is that Israel wants to attack, and sanctions should be imposed against Iran.
        By the way, recent events with Syria are directly related to Iran. If Syria "falls", then intervention against Iran is inevitable ...

        Iran is first of all a friend to itself. They live, do not bow their heads to anyone. They ask for weapons. For money, of course, and not for palm oil. Why not sell?
        And do not forget that for the Wahhabis, the number one enemy is Iranian Shiites.

      The countries with dynamically developing economies that are part of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), at the last five summit, announced their intention to refuse mutual settlements in US dollars. This means that the aforementioned states will provide loans to each other only in national currency. The development banks of these countries have signed an agreement on further gradual withdrawal from loans in US dollars.

The benefit of Russia here is, the journalist notes, that the path from the European part, from the Urals to the Indian Ocean basin, will be reduced by almost half (in comparison with the traditional route through the Bosphorus - Dardanelles - Suez).

      They become allies when armies begin to be friends. Spit on the Western (read Israeli) embargo, or you can always find options to circumvent the embargo if you wish, and start by delivering the Su-35 and S-400 to the Persians and signing an agreement with them for a lease of fifty years to the seaport in the Persian Gulf, like the Syrian Tartus , the amers and Jews will immediately lose their fervor, and the geopolitical gain is just a bomb, and not only for Russia, but even more for Iran.

        Hysteria is just some sort of anti-Syrian and anti-Iranian .. Brainwashing in full profile. But in fact, both Syria and Iran support the same Hazbullah much less than they can. Hazbullah receives more dough from Europe, oddly enough, and from the UAE, which is more expected .. But in Israel, people are driven in that it is Iran and Syria that are evil.

    Well, the benefits of cooperation between Russia and Iran are mutual, and another partner in the Middle East will not hurt. Yes, and again amer "cloves in a tomb" in the Middle East!
    But the attitude towards DAM in Iran is not unambiguous:"Unfortunately, almost everything is in Iran, and politicians and diplomats, especially business circles, are united in one thing - they are more than confident that while Dmitry Medvedev is the prime minister, nothing good can be expected from Russia. In their understanding, he is too pro-Western biased leader and with him, not a single member of his cabinet will decide to restore relations with Iran through his industry."

    Iran has been living under the pressure of sanctions since the beginning of the 50s! It does not swell with hunger, like Sev. Korea. The country is developing with such a boycott and is already enriching uranium itself !!! (China has only recently achieved enrichment). More attention should be paid to such a serious neighbor, whose weight in the region is significant.
    It’s clear that Big Brother’s sanctions are like a black mark for anyone who touches Iran, but, imho, Russia is entering a new orbit and can afford a wider range of interests for integration with Iran. Iran will deal with Belarusians in agricultural machinery. But Russia is finding an extremely important task to find a sales market in Iran.
    Now we urgently need to arrange the year of Iran in Russia through UNESCO. Recruit Iranian students in Russian universities and cadets. And there the vehicle will be replenished with a new candidate wink

        Yes, there was such a block for a short time. in 1979 ended its existence.
        so what's the lie?
        Beginning of sanctions, 1950: The British boycott on Iranian oil products was a response to the nationalization of the British government-owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. The US government supported this boycott.

        Iran should be in Russia's allies. In particular, Iran condemned Chechen separatism, thereby providing tacit support to Russia in this matter. Today, Iran is participating in the restoration of the Chechen economy. Largely thanks to the diplomatic efforts of Iran, Russia was able to partially restore the lost influence in the Middle East and Central Asia. Russia agreed to continue the construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant that had begun under Pahlavi. And now the power plant has reached full capacity.
        Putin now repeatedly declares the lifting of all sanctions against Iran.

    In exactly the same way, Stalinist Russia was friends with Hitler Germany, rejoicing at the imminent decline of the British Empire ... The situation with Iran is exactly the same. It is a pity that history does not teach anyone. It would be extremely naive to believe that the possessed ayatollahs, having received nuclear weapons, would confine themselves to the West and Israel ... The turn will reach Russia. The German fascists and the Islamofascists all begin with the Jews, but do not end with them ... People, remember this ...

Or is it our political elite who once again decided to get in front of America? - Well, well. And to develop mutually beneficial economic relations with Iran - well, God himself ordered it. Moreover, He really needs this against the threats of America. And the Caspian channel - the Persian Gulf - is generally exotic, and, rather, very useful for the economies of Iran and Russia.

    "During the First World War, Iran, although it declared its neutrality, was turned into an arena of military operations between the German-Turkish troops, on the one hand, and the English and Russian, on the other.
    In fact, the period of the formation of Iranian-Russian interstate relations is connected precisely with the reign of Reza Khan (from 1921), and then Reza Shah Pahlavi / 1925-1941 /. Despite Rez Shah’s personal antipathy towards the USSR, his government’s foreign policy was aimed at improving Iranian-Soviet relations beneficial to both countries. The conclusion of trade treaties and agreements, especially the conclusion of the Soviet-Iranian agreement on neutrality of 1927, allowed Iran to weaken its dependence on imperialist powers,
    However, after fascism came to power in Germany, Iran’s foreign policy changed course towards rapprochement with fascist Germany, which managed to capture very significant positions in Iran.

    After the outbreak of World War II and the attack of Hitlerite Germany on the USSR on 22 on June 1941, the territory of Iran, despite Iran's declaration of neutrality, was actively used by the Germans as a springboard for preparing an attack on the Soviet Transcaucasus. / 31, p. 684 /

    After a series of warnings from the Iranian government / notes of June 26, July July 19 and August 16 August 1941 / about the activities of the Nazis hostile to the USSR in Iran, and since the government of Reza Shah did not take measures to suppress these activities, the Soviet government, using art. 6-th agreement 1921 g., Sent troops to Iran. "At the same time, British troops were introduced, although England did not have an international legal basis for their entry."

          in one country they do not like the British, and are friends against them with the Germans. In the other they do not like the Germans, and are friends against them with the French. Somewhere else they do not like the French, Poles, Russians, Italians, Turks, Chinese, and so on. And accordingly - they are friends with someone against these unlovers. Periodically (by historical standards - quite often) the objects of friendship and dislike change, from those to these and vice versa.

        Since we are talking about Iran, we’ll talk about it. So, here is a quote from a secret report by the CIA agent Donald Wilber, entitled simply and clearly, “The Overthrow of Iran’s Prime Minister Mossadq.” We read the prologue:
        At the end of the 1952 of the year, it became obvious that the government of Mossadegh in Iran: did not seek mutual understanding on the oil issue with interested Western countries; brings illegal deficit financing to a dangerous level; violates the Iranian constitution by prolonging the prime minister's tenure; guided by motives dictated by the desire of Mohammed Mossadegh to strengthen personal power; pursues an irresponsible policy based on emotions; weakens the power of the shah; brings the state of the Iranian army to a dangerous edge and maintains close ties with the Tudeh Communist Party. These circumstances indicate a real threat of Iran crossing the other side of the Iron Curtain. If this happens, the Soviets will celebrate victory in the Cold War, and the West will suffer a serious defeat in the Middle East. The only way to rectify the situation is to conduct a covert operation, the plan of which is described in this document.


        Actually, everything is clear to me. Oil and only oil. And do not care about the United States simple Iranian workers. And not only in Iran. And someone else is seriously trying to convince that Iran is an aggressor. There are no words.

        National Socialism and Fascism are not the same thing. Do you know why the Germans were called fascists? Because he was also a socialist. But Soviet propaganda called them fascists, so that they would not confuse Soviet socialism and German national socialism. Apparently they believed that the Soviet people were so stupid that they could not distinguish between German National Socialism and Soviet International Socialism. Although maybe after cleansing the intelligentsia in the 30s, the people really dumbed.

    And you have blacks hanging ... At such a low intellectual level, it is impossible to discuss with you. Stalinist Russia is the same reality as Kimirsenovskaya Korea, even if the countries were called the USSR AND DPRK

    At least, neither Stalinist Russia nor Kimirsenov’s Korea climb with their charter into a foreign monastery, unlike the highly intelligent God-chosen people who managed to spoil the world

      Are you the Anglo-Saxons who poisoned Jews throughout Europe and England, who were called God's chosen ?!

    A potential Iranian market with 80 million people will enable many of our industries to develop.

      Whether their market will give Russia anything is a dubious matter.
      But the fact that Iran receives much more convenience - access to Europe, China and India by way of control of the Arab environment is a fact.

    Friends! I am from Astrakhan. We have been friends with Iran for a long time (we have never stopped making friends). For more than 10 years, the Consulate General of Iran in Russia has been in Astrakhan. We know the province of Gilyan as our region (we are twin cities). Now there are 2 Navy missile boats in the city Iran on a friendly visit. Last year, ships of the Caspian Flotilla were in Iran. Joint exercises are being held in the Caspian.
    In short, a beautiful, hardworking (and most importantly not asking for anything and friendly to Russians) people. Do we not know here in Astrakhan ... To be friends, as tightly as possible!

    The construction of the Caspian Canal - the Persian Gulf - is a project that is very beneficial for Russia and not only Russia, which allows getting rid of Turkish dependence. Only the parameters of the channel must be made so that aircraft carriers and submarines of Russia pass through it. It would be great.

      And when was the last time you looked at a map? There are continuous mountains along the road, explosives will not be enough to hammer them all. And even if you blast these mountains into small gravel, where to export it? The channel is another tale invented by ayatollahs for fools, such as a tale about Imam Mehdi who will come and establish the kingdom of Shiism on earth.

    Our gallant (pro-Israeli) media hung an iron curtain between Iran and Russia.
    Russians practically do not know anything about this state except that they are "ruled by ayatols."
    The attitude of Iranians towards Russians at any level is very good.
    It comes to the funny when Iranian customs officers at the Khomeini airport turn away from drunk Russian tourists.
    The "fifth column" in our government, headed by Mr. Medvedev (Russian in the passport), prevents the maximum improvement in strategic Iran-Russia relations.

    Strengthening the border can be done with weapons or with good neighborly mutually beneficial relations.

    If the canal connecting the Caspian Sea Lake and the Persian Gulf is indeed built, Russia and Iran will greatly benefit from this. It was not only economical means, but also enormous geopolitical consequences of the possibility of the Caspian Flotilla entering the Indian Ocean. At least partially Turkey will stop holding us by the throat (I mean straits).
