Russia and Iran: a new force in world politics

70
Russia and Iran are using military force to achieve their goals in Syria, according to American analysts. Meanwhile, Rosoboronexport claims that Russia is supplying air defense and radio electronics to Iran. And the press service of the Almaz-Antey concern reports that the Iranian delegation got acquainted with the work of the new flight control center and highly appreciated the work of specialists. And the Russian-Iranian alliance is being strengthened ... by the Americans.


Russia and Iran: a new force in world politics


Russia supplies anti-aircraft defense systems and some types of radio electronics to Iran, Anatoly Isaykin, head of Rosoboronexport, said on Monday.

“The list of weapons banned to Iran does not affect a number of weapons - such as air defense weapons, some types of electronics. And it is precisely in these areas that the Russian Federation, through Rosoboronexport, makes contacts and delivers precisely these types of weapons to Iran, ”Isaykin said on the Russia-24 channel, the newspaper writes "Sight".

According to him, the negotiations of Russia and Iran on the line of military-technical cooperation continue.

Thursday this week RIA News" reported on the Iranian delegation’s visit to the Russian concern Almaz-Antey. This became known from the press service of the company.

“The guests were shown the work of the Moscow Center for Automated Air Traffic Control and its structural divisions. The Iranian delegation visited the new flight control center, where it got acquainted with the operation of the Sintez-AR4 air traffic management system of the Moscow Integrated Center of the Unified Air Traffic Management System of the Russian Federation, ”the press service noted.

In addition, the press service reported that “representatives of Tehran inspected the facilities of the Lianozovo Electromechanical Plant (part of the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern) and familiarized themselves with the company's products: route and airfield radar complexes, multi-position surveillance systems, as well as a number of other samples.

RIA "News»Reminds that Almaz-Antey is the main manufacturer and system integrator of equipment for the modernization of the Unified Air Traffic Management System of Russia. This concern also produces a wide range of air defense systems, including C-300 and C-400.

Analyst A. Antonovich (portal "Antifascist") lists the latest milestones of cooperation between Russia and Iran.

1. January 2015 of the year: the Russian Federation and Iran signed an intergovernmental agreement on military cooperation.

2. July. President Hassan Rouhani attended the SCO summit in Ufa.

3. August. Iran withdrew a lawsuit in the Geneva court to Rosoboronexport about Russia's refusal to supply Iran with C-300 systems. These SAMs can "close the sky" over Iran by the beginning of 2017 of the year.

4. Iran and Russia now have a common enemy in the face of the "Islamic state", the struggle with which unites more firmly than the signed agreements.

The analyst believes that a military alliance has been formed between Iran and Russia. This is evidenced by a number of facts: in Baghdad, a focal point for the fight against ISIS was created (with the participation of Iraq and Syria); Iran allowed the passage of Russian cruise missiles through its territory (we are talking about those missiles that were launched in October by the Caspian flotilla RF on the positions of "IG"); Russia is lobbying Iran’s inclusion in the Syrian crisis negotiating group, etc.

We have already written above that the Russian military industrial complex cooperates with Iran. Probably, in the coming months and years, cooperation will be strengthened and expanded.

There is also the potential for economic cooperation. The October visit of the Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak to Tehran, the columnist believes, can become a turning point in the economic relations of the two states. The minister noted that the parties agreed on projects for 40 billion dollars. The discussion concerned “communications, space, transport, energy development in the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the construction and modernization of thermal power plants, the construction of the power grid complex, railway infrastructure, supplies of Russian equipment, including our Superjet 100 aircraft, air and sea transport. ” Special attention at the talks was paid to the issues of the entry of Russian capital into the Iranian oil and gas sector and the implementation of projects for the construction of thermal power plants, as well as the Bushehr-2 and Bushehr-3 NPPs.

And where are the US looking?

In an editorial Washington Post from November 2, it is noted that the actions of the United States with respect to Syria in recent days not only failed to harmonize the strategy, but, on the contrary, showed a contradiction.

Secretary of State John Kerry in Vienna tried to reach agreement on a plan for a political transition in Syria, which would include the creation of a transitional government, the drafting of a constitution, and UN-controlled free elections. This broad idea received support, but Kerry’s proposal for the time frame during which Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would leave his post (from four to six months) was categorically rejected by Russia and Iran.

Mr. Kerry thinks that removing Assad from power will end the civil war and allow the Islamic State to be defeated. At the same time, he admits that the military measures announced Friday at the White House and involving the sending of a small number of special forces troops to northern Syria and an increase aviation forces in Turkey will not achieve this goal.

The publication welcomes any actions that will lead to increased US pressure on terrorists. However, the newspaper Obama considers additional steps insufficient. Even 100 million dollars intended for the next “non-lethal assistance of the Syrian opposition” will not save the situation. After all, the Syrian troops receiving American military support do not necessarily fight against the Assad regime and do not even necessarily share the political goals of reunifying the country, approved by the Vienna Conference, whose decision leaves the country's “state institutions” unchanged. For example, Syrian Kurds, who have a de facto truce with the regime, are trying to "carve out their own autonomous territory."

Well, and most importantly: Russia and Iran with the help of those military forces that they sent to Syria, achieve their political goals, including the preservation of the Assad regime "for an indefinite period."

The newspaper accuses Obama of weakness: the president "refuses to approve measures that would allow more pressure on Assad." Meanwhile, the American military forces are trying to accomplish tactical tasks, the solution of which will probably lead to an interesting result: it will help the Russian-Iranian alliance to achieve its political goals!

        It would be funny if it were not a little sad. Soon there will be a caliphate and a similar government throughout Europe. I do not wish extermination to any people, but the Europeans themselves commit suicide. But it’s sickening to look at lunatics and suicides.

              Kazakhstan began cooperation with Iran when Medvedev refused them s-300

              We have nothing to share with Iran - on the contrary - Iran held it in the most difficult years after the collapse of the USSR, when the "Basmachi" bearded men were trying to reach the Kazakh borders, by the way, with the money of the Amers and Saudis, then only 3 countries supported Masud and "our" Afghans against the Taliban - Kazakhstan , Russia, and Iran

              At the end of 2014, a long-term project was completed - railway line Iran - Kazakhstan
              Presidents of KZ and Iran personally met at the opening of the railway and announced plans for multiple growth in trade
              But the main thing is that we understand everything, which means the end of the possibility of blocking our friend and ally from the sea - at a difficult time, Iran will get everything from Kazakhstan via railway from Kazakhstan - including Russian troops if necessary

      Yes, there is no union. And I hope it won't. It is beneficial to amers to imagine that this is so. Like another alliance with another odious state opposing itself to "light" forces. (although the sanctions were lifted). Reducing the military budget again ... And so, these are our temporary partners. They think only of themselves (and rightly so). We need living power on earth. They, one way or another, provide us with it. Assad cannot cope on his own. We can't climb. Although this is going. Therefore, we use them. They are us. The main thing here is not to miss the moment when they decide to throw us (throwing the wrong one is okay). The main thing is to get yours and not pay more for it than necessary. Iran is the current partner. We give them weapons, technologies, specialists (I hope that at a real price) and political support, they are our living force. That's the whole union. Economic and military partnership. Although the second, politically, is better known.

      A colleague has just returned from Iran. I was there for 2 months. We talked constantly. I kept asking him: what is the attitude in Iran to the events in Syria, to the participation of our Air Force? Answer: no way !! They are not interested in anything in the general mass. My colleague found out about "Calibers" from me, in Iran they didn't even say much ... Everything American is praised, and the Russian GPU, for example, scolds, although our GKS officers are quite happy with them ... At every corner they strive, as if it were -cultural ..., cheat winked or something ... These are ... friends ...

            Well, in the ability to sing for any reason - they can compete with the Indians, only here are the results
            The militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) group defeated the 9th elite tank division of Iraqi government forces. It is reported by Twitter Alanbar News.

            ISIS launched its offensive on Baghdad in early June. Islamists of the group conquered Iraqi cities one after another. In the captured areas, the terrorists took military equipment and weapons left by the United States during the withdrawal of their troops.

            ISIS fighters proclaimed an Islamic caliphate in the occupied territories in Iraq. They plan to install it also in Syria, where the Islamists of this group operate.

          You know, there is a not quite clear paradox here. They beat each other's muzzles. Troops mutually visited each other's territory. Ermolov called "Persians" something like "villains without honor and conscience" along with "fanatical Chechens." Nevertheless, Russians and Persians somehow understand each other at the level of communication, are able to interact. If they are deceived, then in their own way. As for the Arabs, I come from the specialists who interacted with them, there are no good reviews in this regard: it is awkward, inconvenient, unreliable.

            I myself have lived for more than 20 years in a Muslim country (Tajikistan) and caught one feature common to countries where fundamentalist currents of Islam are strong: there imams in mosques say something like the following - “never deceive your fellow believers, but you can deceive the infidels (kafirs), Allah won't mind. " So many years will pass. before in the same Iran at the household level get rid of it. And Syria is different, there are quite a few Christians, the Syrians are more honest, noble and more reliable!

    True friendship is said to start with a good fight.
    Over the centuries, Russia fought with Persia more than once and each time with a predictable result - the Persians raked and everything settled down. Maybe the time has come for real friendships. Especially in the current conditions, when Russia and Iran have one common geopolitical enemy that sits overseas and one common ideological enemy - (pseudo) Islamic radicalism, closely intertwined and fused with international terrorism (the same ISIS). "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" is quite appropriate in this case. Yes, and it will not hurt to earn extra money by supplying products to Iran, both military and purely peaceful. Moreover, the financial benefit also gives political preferences.
    I have the honor.

      Especially in the current conditions, when Russia and Iran have one common geopolitical enemy, which sits across the ocean and one common ideological opponent

      So I want to fool around. This is Russia’s enemy overseas. Although now it’s not the enemy, but the enemy is now buying gas.
      Iran has an enemy not of Islamic radicalism, but of Sunnism as a whole, but as the goal of existence - the Islamic revolution around the world, plus the destruction of Israel, and Russia in a very distant future, as a small shaitan (and the idea of ​​small and large Satan received a new reading), which gradually rises from the knees of all muesli, without exception.
      And to earn extra money on deliveries to Iran of products of both military and purely peaceful purposes will not hurt

      These rogues would start pumping oil, but they do not even have the money to upgrade the oil-producing complex; again, what kind of abreks to feed, which also tusuyut with China in quiet?

        Where did such wide and ... obsolete knowledge come from? Your words would not have raised any doubts during Ayatollah Khomeini in the year 1978, but not now. Take a look at the calendar. Why is Shiite Iran helping Sunni Syria (is there a majority of Sunnis, right?)?

      Iran in its policy is no different from China and it cares exclusively about its interests. it always has been and it will be so
      Iran has never been an ally of the USSR / Russia (in the normal sense of the word) - and never will be
      The mentality and goals are too varied.
      At this stage, it is beneficial for Iran to have ties with Russia in confronting America.
      At the same time, he does not miss his interests, and here it is completely unclear who steers whom.
      Remember what I am telling you, at the time that sanctions will be lifted from Iran (and before that nothing remains - in my opinion, the Senate vote) - Iran will not give a damn about the economic situation in Russia - it will throw out its 70 million barrels accumulated on the market oil and increase production by another 1 million per day, bringing down already low prices.
      There was a wonderful comment


      Quote: Angry Guerrilla
      A colleague has just returned from Iran. I was there for 2 months. We talked constantly. I kept asking him: what is the attitude in Iran to the events in Syria, to the participation of our Air Force? Answer: no way !! They are not interested in anything in the general mass. My colleague found out about "Calibers" from me, in Iran they didn't even say much ... Everything American is praised, and the Russian GPU, for example, scolds, although our GKS officers are quite happy with them ... At every corner they strive, as if it were -cultural ..., cheat, or something ... These are ... friends ...

      You have to look at it.
      And it's true why Bassidzh (volunteers) is fighting in Syria, and not the Army? For the simple reason, the Iranian people do not care about Syria and they are against sending their troops.
      Do not rush to lay so many hopes on Iran.
      First - the country is then generally a third world, ruled by the clergy and is an outcast in the Islamic world.
      What is the meaning of Russia to speak on the side of the weak? This is a question for Lavrov.
      But while Russia and Iran will go together - there will be no normal relations with Islamic states (Sunni) - and this is 90% of the Islamic world.
      From opposing Russia to these countries, only Iran will benefit; Russia I doubt.

    Russia and Iran, with the help of the military forces that they sent to Syria, are achieving their political goals, including maintaining the Assad regime "for an indefinite period."

    "The force of action is equal to the force of reaction" - yes, and this happens even in big politics. If you hit one point for a long time with one method, then those around you can get tired of it, and they begin to oppose this together, despite some contradictions in the past. So here too, the Americans are fed up, bored and sore on the edge of the monotonous political show of the Americans, how bored they are with Hollywood (if you watch it for a long time). People gradually begin to see clearly and see the simple truth that "the king is naked", behind him, behind his soul, nothing significant and useful to people is really observed.

          For the slow-witted: Netanyahu explained his words about Hitler and Al-Hussein

          After a stir caused by the words of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the former Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, threw the idea of ​​massively burning Jews to Adolf Hitler, Netanyahu decided to clarify his words.

          Before flying to Germany, where he had a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel and US Secretary of State John Kerry, the prime minister made a short statement.

          “I didn’t mean to remove responsibility from Hitler, this is an absurd interpretation,” he said of the accusations of distorting history. “Hitler is fully responsible for deciding the final solution of the Jewish question. But it is equally absurd to deny the responsibility of Mufti Al -Husseini, who encouraged and spurred Hitler. The Mufti played a role in the decision to exterminate the Jews. "

          He added that the basis for this statement is the documented evidence of Deputy Eichmann at the Nuremberg trials.

          "The Mufti again and again appealed to Hitler, Ribbentrop and Himmler with a proposal to begin the extermination of European Jews. The Mufti was one of the initiators of the systematic extermination of the Jews of Europe and collaborated with Eichmann and Hitler in the implementation of this plan."



          Netanyahu explained the criticism of his words by representatives of the academic community as follows: “The attempt of some researchers to protect Al-Husseini is understandable. But there are other historians who cite the evidence I have given and offer additional evidence to support it. I did not try to remove responsibility from Hitler, but only wanted to show that even then the "founding fathers of the Palestinian people" called for the complete extermination of the Jews, although there was no Jewish state, occupation and settlements then.

    A new agreement with Iran could open Russian oil’s access to markets in which Russia had never previously been present due to its geographical location.
    Access to these markets will be gained through the Persian Gulf. Russia and Iran are close to concluding an oil swap deal that will open a “secret path” to Asia.
    Iranian Deputy Oil Minister Hossein Amir Zamaninia said Russian officials and Iranian officials will discuss this week.
    The cooperation scheme is quite simple. Russia and Iran will exchange oil through supplies through the Caspian. Iranian oil will be used in Russia, and Russian, most likely, in the northern regions of Iran.
    Moreover, oil from Russia can be delivered even further south and even exported from ports in the Persian Gulf.
    As a result, Russia will gain unprecedented access to markets across the Indian Ocean, including major buyers in Asia.
    If the implementation of the agreements is successful, then the face of the oil market in the region may change completely. Nevertheless, even approximate volumes of mutual deliveries remain unknown.http: //ktovkurse.com/neft/iran-raschistil-sekretnyj-put-v-aziyu-dlya-ro

      Iran will pump oil to Russia, and Russia to Iran? belay

      As a result, Russia will gain unprecedented access to markets across the Indian Ocean, including major buyers in Asia.

      Interestingly, the Iranians will immediately understand that there is some kind of fawn ... or will they first pump it over?

      If the implementation of the agreements is successful, then the face of the oil market in the region may change completely

      Of course. Iran will sell its oil for distant lands, and Russia - Assad will cover its transportation costs-- Assad laughing

        hi You’re in vain commenting, Atalef, knowingly ..... not quite competent comments ... smile Oil is the last thing that interests Russia in Syria. That should be clear. Allies (or whatever else you can .... partners ... etc.) are those who assist us in most of our plans. The Iranians are helping to preserve Syria as a united state and do not dare to hinder us in the future formation of a secular government (here we are very divided with them). It's enough. If someone (Israel, for example wink ) will offer us something similar - I’m sure we will agree, but .... I’m sure that he will not offer it .... So it’s hard to say who exactly is wrong in choosing an ally ....

    Syria needs to be supported, if only because of Vanga’s prophecy: its fall is the beginning of the third big war. Is it stupid? Is it foolish to believe in fairy tales? Is it stupid to just believe?

    Russia has always been a force, just a bullshit of a local spill was not a reason to demonstrate it!)) There was a leader who realized that it was time ... About Iran, well, probably yes, while with us ...
