While the EU extends anti-Russian sanctions, Iran seeks opportunities to intensify trade with the EAEU

55
The states of the European Union agreed that the sanctions against Russia should be extended to 31 in July 2016. Representatives of the European Union countries, including Italy and the Czech Republic, who recently called for the need to revise the package of anti-Russian restrictive measures, decided that there was no need to contradict the main EU “partner” distributing instructions remotely from overseas.


A statement by representatives of the European Commission states that the sanctions have been extended due to the “incomplete implementation of the Minsk agreements by Russia”. It seems that in Europe they are not ready to realize the simple fact that Russia initially has nothing to do with the implementation of the Minsk agreements for the simple reason that the agreements must be fulfilled by two parties, Kiev and Donbass. I wonder what the EU will motivate the next extension of anti-Russian sanctions next year - after the expiration of 31 in December 2015 of the period of the Minsk Protocol? .. It will be necessary to look for new reasons ...

While the EU extends anti-Russian sanctions, Iran seeks opportunities to intensify trade with the EAEU


In the meantime, the EU extends sanctions against Russia, Iran declares its readiness to intensify activities in the Russian market, as well as in the EAEU market. Information Agency TASS reports that the Minister of Industry, Minerals and Trade, Mohammed Reza Nematzade, announced negotiations on the most-favored-state regime for Iran in the huge market of the EEU.

Nematzade:
We are negotiating now, representatives of the EAEU come to Tehran in two days to negotiate. We are in the initial stage of these negotiations. Now we are talking about an agreement on the most favored nation mode in trade. In the future, this may be an agreement on a free trade zone.


For reference: Iran is a state with a population of about 79 million people (about the same as how many people live in Germany). Iran's GDP at purchasing power parity is estimated at about 1,3 trillion. dollars (17-18 place in the world). The trade between Iran and Russia is about 330 million dollars - an amount that does not reflect the trading potential of the two states and definitely will grow in the near future.

    On this subject, I am least worried - they will find a reason, much can happen in half a year.
    And Iran is doing the right thing - why not be among the important trading partner if the place is vacated?

            The USSR may have lived under sanctions, but Russia is not the USSR. The USSR provided itself to almost everyone, the economy was the second in the world, and more than 20% of the total world share in production. So do not compare two different countries.

It looks like when there are holes in the roof and when there is no rain, everyone is happy, and when it started to rain, we rush right and left and look for holes to fill up.

                He provided himself to everyone not because of sanctions, but because it was the country's own security. And now everyone does not care about the country's security, the main thing is to get money while at the helm, and send the children away. Why build factories, develop your processing industry, help your people build small and medium-sized businesses. It’s easier to pump oil and gas and build new pipelines.

              To put it mildly, the comparison is incorrect ... Immediately after the formation of the USSR, the civil war only "ended", no one in the world has yet recognized the USSR as a state entity, the sanctions were severe, the economy did not exist as such ... It all started something like this. .. It is true that in Europe there was "no ice" and the United States was on the eve of the "Great Depression", but the whole world began to prepare for the Second World War ...

              The USSR has imported wheat - Russia is exporting. Since there is enough grain now (and another 40 million hectares of hectares empty), Russia is already reaching 100% for pork and poultry with a focus on export. Cows simply do not grow quickly, especially as for milk - because a couple more years and everything will be fine, again there is enough grain for this. The bowels are rich in all.
              Well, what is not enough for the first time - we will buy in China, during the Soviet era, China was - well, quite different. And China is "behind the fence" - the United States has almost all the ocean.
              Because - I personally do not care deeply about the green rate, and the price of oil, the only thing that bothers me is the Native Central Bank, which picked up bad from your Fed.
              And by the way, during the times of the USSR, in the USA rulers were wiser - and now .....:
              In 1998, Russia's debt was approximately 180 billion green - in 2015, about 58 billion green.
              In 1998, the US debt was about 5 trillion green - in 2015, about 18 trillion with a tail.

      The sanctions were imposed because of the "occupation" of the Crimea and the support of the DPR and LPR. So they can be extended as long as they want. Since the DPR and LPR, the issue can be resolved, but the return of Crimea never.

            It turns out interestingly.
            In the west - a block of consumers that does not have (except for the USA) natural resources. And in Eurasia - a bloc that has these resources (RF, RI, RK). It would not be bad if we did not compete, but cooperated. Thus, they could set prices for raw materials and energy. After all, the West has always tried to prevent this. The Iranians went through their sanctions, now I hope they will have a sound policy - life has taught the search for allies.
            Trading is always good. New connections, contacts. Take the Turks. It seems to me that the Turkish people understand very well that we are not going to fight them, despite the media propaganda. They work here, married couples, tourists in Turkey - all this affects relations between nations. Why not try with the Iranians, there are also many Azerbaijanis (who can be "guides" at first) ?! They are neighbors in the Caspian Sea and that is enough - "a good neighbor is closer to a distant relative."
            The interest in such countries, including us, that we need to BUILD a lot of things (creation). Why build in those States or Europe - everything has been arranged there for a long time ?! Every piece of land is equipped. We have many infrastructure projects that can be built for the benefit of each other and used together. Well, for example, we built gas pipes for the Turkmen and Uzbeks in the PRC. Everyone is good, all this binds us and our interests - I hope no one will think of breaking this. Or the Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran railway line, which aroused great interest both in the PRC (Silk Road) and the Russian Federation (from the Urals to the Far East, access to the BV and the Persian Gulf). This all "makes" friends, who would refuse such a thing !? And then more. hi

              The Western block of consumers is therefore equipped and rich in that it lives off countries that have raw materials and energy. The current political and economic crisis is a consequence of the fact that commodity countries began to slowly creep out of dependence.
              Cooperation will not work because if the commodity countries get out of Western control, they will begin to dictate their conditions in politics and economics. And this is death for the dollar and, accordingly, the entire Western economy.
              Hence the growth of state aggression throughout the years after the collapse of the USSR. The lack of equal economic and political power distorted the balance and led to a systemic crisis of the Western model. They got at their disposal practically the whole world, and they had nowhere to expand and no one to fight with. That is - there is nowhere to merge the excess dollar mass. So they began to destroy Africa and BV in order to create some kind of opportunity to drain the buck.
              Putin is essentially a savior for the states. It provides them with an excellent opportunity to stabilize the situation and keep their financial system up to the point where it can be relatively painless to switch to another currency and remove the air bucks.

    They (EU countries), already cause not a feeling of indignation, and not even contempt, but that feeling when you accidentally touch something vilely disgusting and disgusting.
    How should the European "elite" sink so low, knowing full well that Russia is not a party to the agreements, but a guarantor of the "Minsk agreements", to accuse it of non-fulfillment of those.
    We will live under sanctions, although there are separate problems, but what Europe will do in a year and a half, when a wave of migrants from North Africa and the Middle East floods ALL EUROPE, this is another question. And will Europe not ask for our help in resolving the migration issue?
    And if he asks, I hope the answer will be like this: - "They themselves" lay down "under the shtvty, - and disentangle yourself!

    You can forget about the old relations with Europe. And it’s not even the case in America that preserves them.
    they’re just afraid of our vastness. They were afraid earlier and now even more. I’m hard to think like a European, but I probably would be afraid too. A country with nuclear weapons that can take territory from another state (Crimea) without shots. A country that has more than once the army entered the European capitals.
    And they, ordinary Europeans, are not going to figure out who leaked the Crimea to anyone, what kind of meetings in Yalta. Before their eyes on local news channels barbarians from the north they bomb Syria, build up and modernize the army. And youth education now in all countries only comes down to just two words ...Ok google everyone is hawking the news. They’re just scary. Therefore, it’s easier for them with America. Somewhere far beyond the puddle. And they know that sanctions are only slowing us down but not stopping them.

      Russia will create a satellite for remote sensing of land for Iran
      The document was signed by the general director of the VNIIEM corporation Leonid Makridenko, the general director of the NPK BARL Sergey Baskov and the head of the Iranian company Boniyan Danesh Sharg Ali Reza Zolali.
      The head organization for this project - NPK BARL - will be responsible for the integration and refinement of the ground infrastructure of the Iranian ERS space system. VNIIEM will be the developer of the spacecraft and will launch it on a Russian launch vehicle. In turn, "Boniyan Danesh Sharg" will act as the operator of the remote sensing system.
      Makridenko told reporters that this agreement is preliminary, and the contract itself is planned to be concluded by the end of the year. "The satellite will be launched by a passing launch by our spacecraft on the Soyuz carrier rocket. The device will be built on the basis of the upgraded Kanopus satellite platform," he said.

        Iranian spiritual leader prays for Vladimir Putin and Russian soldiers
        One of Iran’s spiritual leaders, Ayatollah Muhammad Ali Movahedi Kermani, during a pan-Tehran Friday prayer, prayed with thousands of Muslims about the Russian armed forces involved in the fight against terrorists in Syria and about Vladimir Putin.

    Iran -

    Good partner, no words, the market is huge !!!

    Just do not forget that Ayatola and even Khomeini and his followers called the USSR and then Russia the devil.

    Why lie then? Ayatollah didn’t call Russia a devil, but on the Soviet Union’s account, I agree that communism was compared to the party of the devil.

    ".. And while the EU is extending sanctions against Russia, Iran declares its readiness to intensify its activities in the Russian market .." And this is very good. And niches are parts. The fact that there is a process of Euro substitution is very indicative.

    While the mattresses are pressing Europe, the sanctions will not be lifted. Everyone knows and understands this. And they will be renewed every six months, regardless of what is happening in the Donbass. Gentlemen in the West have voiced their demands, which we will not agree to. Such partners as we need Iran. to establish close relations with countries that sincerely seek to be friends with us ... yes

    The statement of the representatives of the European Commission states that the sanctions have been extended in connection with the "incomplete fulfillment of the Minsk agreements by Russia." It seems that Europe is not ready to realize the simple fact that Russia initially had nothing to do with the implementation of the Minsk agreements for the simple reason that the two parties should fulfill the agreements - Kiev and Donbass.

    I remember how immediately after the formation of the Debaltseve cauldron, Hollande and Merkel flew to Moscow and let's persuade Putin to go to Minsk-2 ... Hotly argued with someone, on some resource, that Putin agreed in vain! He argued that it was Putin and Russia that would then be accused of all mortals and, first of all, of non-compliance with the terms of the agreement ... After all, Putin, having agreed to these negotiations, indirectly admitted his involvement in the events in Donbas. The Americans sat on the sidelines, as if they were out of business !!! This is where the "highlight of the program" is ... So Biden should have been pulled back to Minsk for negotiations, and not been led to a cheap purchase, in the hope of easing sanctions. I was jarred then that even Obama expressed his satisfaction with the talks in Minsk ... And now - eat, don't choke ...

    If only they would not change their minds.

    And as soon as they change their minds, the government will immediately lift the food embargo (they have been waiting all this time) and their chemical food will pour out at bargain prices and will bankrupt your farmers with their expensive loans. Or maybe there are naive people who think differently? Or how will it be?

    From now on, do not inform the Russians about the sanctions of the West against Russia, but report on our sanctions against the West! - And it’s time not to depend on these sanctions of the West! - They’re gone! We cooperate with the East!

    I believed that Iran and Turkey are implacable enemies. At least, they present us with this.
    Ah, here is the information for consideration:

    Iran as a state is preferable to Turkey already because they are Shiites and Sunites live in our country. Therefore, they will not be able, like the Turks "spiritual" in fact, sects to breed in our country. Therefore, I quite like the turn to Iran-Iraq-Syria-Lebanon.
