Eurasian Union of Large Format

28


Russia, Iran and China are the most important geopolitical players of Eurasia, each of which is strong in its region. So, under the influence of Russia are the CIS countries, Iran has weight in Syria and Lebanon, and China, as a potential superpower, is generally trying to fill in any wasteland not occupied by the Russian Federation or the United States. Russian President Vladimir Putin is well aware of the potential of the union of Moscow, Tehran and Beijing, and in every way promotes the idea of ​​its creation at the international level. In particular, the question of the formation of a new structure of international security in the Asia-Pacific region was discussed at the recent Shanghai talks between the leaders of Russia and China.

The cornerstone of Eurasian cooperation

20-21 May, Russian President Vladimir Putin participated in the Russian-Chinese summit in Shanghai. The host was China's President Xi Jinping, who supported Moscow’s willingness to bring relations between the countries to a qualitatively new level. And this is not only about trade: on the day of the summit in the East China Sea, Russian and Chinese ships took part in joint exercises. What a more transparent hint at the intensification of military-political cooperation, isn't it?

And this hint was addressed not to Vladimir Putin, not to the people of Russia, and certainly not to the Chinese. It is known that the meeting of the leaders of the two strongest countries in Asia was observed by almost all their neighbors. It was for them that the message was intended: the PRC, as well as the Russian Federation, has long wanted to create a security system in the region that would guarantee the safety of all its participants. The day after the Shanghai meeting, Xi Jinping made a corresponding appeal, urging Asian countries to expand mutual dialogue.

The structures needed by Russia and China for the consolidation of Asian states already exist. For example, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization has successfully established itself, whose members rely on each other in the fight against crime and terrorism, energy security, cultural partnership, and scientific interaction.

Attention should also be paid to the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia, otherwise the CICA is a group of countries that every four years organize a special meeting devoted to the discussion of international conflicts in the Asian space. This group includes various states, regardless of the official religion, form of government, economic development or population. India is here on a par with China, Palestine - with Israel, and Saudi Arabia - with Iran. The group includes 24 states, including Russia. However, there are no Philippines, Indonesia and Japan in SVDMA - these countries are influenced by the United States, and for their own benefit refuse to participate in pan-Asian projects.

Make Eurasia Untouchable

However, SVDMA does not suffer much from the whims of its American allies. The main thing is that this working group allows Iran to be involved in solving international problems. The United States is deliberately trying to isolate him, block his access to supranational institutions.

An isolated Iran is dangerous to the world - Washington is aware of this, but deliberately continues the pressure. The SCO, SVDMA and other pan-Asian organizations are a thin straw that helps save the Middle East from falling into chaos.

Meanwhile, Iran could be one of the three pillars of the new world order in Asia. Due to its geographic location, it is ideally suited for the role of a “southern outpost”, and can be an excellent barrier to the Western and Sunni radicals in Central Asia. Of course, this will happen if Russia and China find enough strength to come to a compromise and jointly remove the countries of the Caucasus and Pakistan from the game - the “holes” in the new geopolitical system.

It is through them that American troops penetrate into Central Asia, where under the guise of fighting against radical Islam, the Central Asian republics are rich in minerals trying to take control of Washington. China understands the impending threat, and is trying in every way to neutralize one of the major gaps in Pakistan: Islamabad is increasingly looking in the direction of Beijing, because the United States has gone too far in its military operation, and from the point of view of the Pakistani government are doing impermissible things. For example, without warning, they bombed Pakistani territory. And the operation to eliminate Osama bin Laden turned into a grandiose diplomatic scandal, because, as it turned out, it was carried out without the consent of Islamabad.

Russia, for its part, is also closing the supply channels for US troops in Afghanistan. This is due to the crisis in relations with the West and a series of sanctions imposed on Russian officials, businessmen and entire companies. This makes the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan inevitable: the supply is hampered so much that the occupation contingent is actually in a state of siege.

Thus, it is critically important for Russia and China to include Iran in the new security mechanisms in the Asian region. Indeed, an isolated Tehran is dangerous because of its unpredictability, while Moscow and Beijing without its participation cannot create a ring around Central Asia, from where one can easily destabilize the situation in any of the regions located deep in the continent.

The three pillars of the anti-American union

However, Iran is not yet attracted to resolving international disputes, even though he has managed to establish himself as a strong regional player. In particular, the officers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are actively involved in the Syrian war, and many of the Levant rebel organizations are oriented toward Tehran and receive the necessary material and political support from there.

In the near future, Iran may well become Russia's main ally in the Middle East, taking the place of Syria. This is largely due to the sharp deterioration in relations between Moscow and Washington: Tehran’s help was not comical before, and for the sake of ties with the West, he had to sacrifice his own interests. Now everything has changed, and Russia's actions are no longer limited to any formalities.

At the same time, it is important to maintain such a balance of power so that Russia does not become involved in the Middle East confrontation with the participation of Iran, otherwise there is a risk of over-exertion of efforts in this direction to the detriment of other key regions. China, too, can only provide Tehran with financial support. However, this is enough: in the conditions of sanctions, Iran is looking for any sources of income, for example, selling oil to its partners, including Russia.

The United States hopes to break ties between Russia, Iran and China, as well as middle-level states in order to finish off their enemies one by one, as was done, for example, with Slobodan Milosevic, Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gaddafi. The goal is to prevent the emergence in Eurasia of such a state or union of states that could challenge American power. However, in view of recent events, Washington’s plans did not come to fruition: in the face of heightened aggression, Moscow, Beijing and Tehran are moving by leaps and bounds towards each other. The chances of the US destroying an emerging alliance are melting every day.

If the new balance of power in Asia is secured by a series of treaties, the United States may not even count on continuing expansionary policies. The sphere of influence of Washington will be limited in the east to Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, in the south - the Himalayas, and in the west - Turkey. The internal regions of Eurasia will turn into an inaccessible bastion, free from overseas influence.

    It is only necessary to always bear in mind ... China is an ally only in the zone of its national interests ... and only in a certain period.
    Now the interests coincided ... that’s wonderful.

      We only had tense relations with China in the early twenties and the late sixties and early seventies of the last century. But even that did not translate into a large-scale military confrontation. The conflict between China and Vietnam was more bloody and wider

        Larger? - as far as I remember, even the aircraft from both sides did not participate, but the width of the front can be concluded by looking at the map. Eastern civilizations wage wars in comparison with large casualties, apparently due to the saturation of human resources.

      Off topic ...

      CNN has declassified information about the incident with a U.S. reconnaissance aircraft and a Russian fighter.

      So on the air of the TV channel they reported that Russian Su-27 fighter flew just 30 meters in front of the nose of the American strategic reconnaissance aircraft RC-135U.

      As explained by the Pentagon spokesman Steve Warren (Steve Warren), the incident occurred on April 23 in the international airspace over the Sea of ​​Okhotsk. He noted that the pilots of the aircraft did not go to radio communications. The Russian fighter only showed the Americans the bottom of the fuselage, where the missiles were located.

      The senior US military leadership in a private conversation with Russian colleagues then expressed their concerns in this regard.

      This is not the first time in recent months that Russian pilots have been so close to American military equipment. So, in April, the Su-24 made several flights at a low altitude over the US destroyer Donald Cook, stationed in the Black Sea.

    For some reason they forget to mention India. Or it's all for a reason. This player is not much inferior to China in terms of the power of the economy and the army and navy. This player can "close" the entire area of ​​the Indian Ocean, and keep the countries of the Persian Ealiv on a "short leash".

      In fact, India itself is kept on a "short leash" by China and Pakistan and a little bit by fleas in Sri Lanka (the tigers of the liberation of Tamil Eelam) - where are the resources to "close" the Indian Ocean? I do not even know whether to flatter myself about the name of the ocean. India has access to American and Western weapons, in the case of joint exercises of the US and Indian fleets (-IMHO).

      I almost forgot, here is one of the largest US military bases abroad and in the region - Diego Garcia, and this is the area of ​​responsibility of their 5th operational fleet, intercepting the ships of the neighboring 6th (ATF) and 7th (Pacific Fleet) Fleets + Australas nearby.

    The union of Russia, China and Iran will be a very good counterbalance to US policy in Asia. All members of the union would benefit from its creation, but they would drag out too long with its creation. And then it will be possible to say bravely to the politicians of our countries.

      The Islamic Republic of Iran is suspected of trying to create nuclear weapons, if this is confirmed, then a military operation will be more likely to be conducted against the country. For example, I have not the slightest desire for Russia to get involved in World War III because of Iran because of allied obligations, otherwise Russia will lose face.

    A feasible contribution to strengthening relations with Iran was made by the former guarantor of the DAM, when he banned, at the "request" of Y, the supply of contracted and partially paid S-300 air defense systems. The Iranians were going to demand a large penalty. Who knows how it ended or continued?

      We offered the Vityaz instead of the S-300V. The system is good, but purely air defense, you cannot attach nuclear warheads, as on the S-300. Then there were negotiations, then there was a deal to supply 550 million bar of oil in exchange for "consumer goods".
      OBS said that they helped with rocket technology and specialists, despite the pressure of the West, we are building nuclear weapons in Bushehr. But the carrier, as far as I know, they now do it themselves. They are going to build their apl according to Korean drawings. We started to enrich uranium to 90% for use in fuel elements (nuclear weapons assemblies), which was officially notified to the IAEA. Although it may lie sources.

    I, like Yuri (Sanglier RU Today, 09: 41), was alarmed by the absence of India in this organization. This is a very significant player, which in no case should be forgotten. Due to graters with Pakistan and rivalry with China, she apparently does not enter into this alliance. Then we will have to make it our ally at the interstate level, resolve all controversial issues, act as a mediator and tie it economically and military-technical to ourselves.
    In due time V.I. Lenin rightly said: whoever the peoples of India and China will go for is the future. China, it seems, is with us. It is up to India.

    However, Iran has not yet been attracted to the resolution of international disputes, even though it has managed to establish itself as a strong regional player. In particular, the officers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps are actively involved in the Syrian war.

    Do not forget that, in fact, Pakistan was part of India. Just like Bangladesh. However, the Muslims decided to secede and in 1947 there was a separation of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The separation occurred on religious grounds and a lot of Hindus died at the hands of Muslims. Therefore, India is very wary of the Islamic states. And he is unlikely to want to be friends with Iran.

    When Russia, through peaceful means, without wars, is restored to the USSR economically and military developed, with an excellent army, it will not be intimidated. Further, if Russia is crushed, it will be restored to the Russian Empire. If the fools do not get further -the whole continent of Eurasia-will become part of Russia-voluntarily. Without wars. They themselves will be asked to be part of Russia.
    Because Russia has everything for this. With that, all of this, it can be achieved without war and a single shot. I am already tired of writing that Russia has everything for this: both resources and the mainland convenient, and the army is not for attack, and the fact that Russia is not an aggressor, to the good and economically developed and strong militarily, they all reach for themselves. will not give up, will develop and strengthen. The Army of Russia will always be the best.
    Well, Putin, well done. Only slowly, I want, already this)))
