And as some experts note, in this entangled tangle of regional wars, crises and conflicts, Iran’s ambitions look like a time bomb - and a large amount of new dynamite accumulates in the region.
The influence of Iran on the internal political situation in a number of countries today is causing concern and caution in relations with the Persian state.
According to many foreign experts, it was in Tehran that the scenario of the civil war in Tajikistan was prepared at the beginning of the 90 - s of the last century, and Iran ideologically inspired supporters of the United Tajik Opposition. The past civil war claimed hundreds of thousands of lives, caused irreparable damage to the country's economy and caused a mass exodus of highly qualified specialists from Tajikistan.
Today, the Iranian government has launched a large-scale work to implant radical, Iranian Shiite Islam in other countries of Islam.
For example, Iran financed the education system of Tajikistan. He supported everything from teacher training to providing literature. In the capital of Tajikistan, under the pretext of teaching the Persian language, literature of a radical Shiite orientation was distributed free of charge. An important role in this process was also played by the IRPT, which was the conductor of the radical ideas of Iran, whose missionaries, by offering monetary rewards, recruited more and more followers of radical, Iranian Shiism.
I personally resented the last act of Iran. 27 December 2015 of the year to the Islamic Unity conference, which opened in Tehran, was invited by the leader of the banned in the RT, extremist and terrorist Islamic Revival Party Muhiddin Kabiri. Moreover, another fact also causes discontent; the organizers put the official government delegation of Tajikistan next to Kabiri. Of course, in my opinion, the official delegation of Tajikistan in protest had to leave the hall, which, by the way, according to the Iranian media, they did later. However, this circumstance must be carefully considered in Tajikistan.
The events followed the worst scenario, after the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Tajikistan protested about the participation of Muhiddin Kabiri at the conference, according to Iranian media, on the same day, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei met with Muhiddin Kabiri.
It should be noted that at the conference there were a lot of words about Islamic unity, but everyone knows Iran’s hypocrisy in this matter. Today, Iran is actively promoting the idea of a “Shiite axis” and, realizing its strategic objectives, sometimes in a very rude manner interferes in the internal affairs of other states without even ignoring the support of terrorist organizations. Iran intervenes in the affairs of such countries as Iraq, Azerbaijan, Lebanon, Bahrain, Yemen, where even a small number of Shiite people live. Recently, Iran has been trying to influence the policy of Tajikistan by hosting members of the terrorist IRPT declared in Tajikistan. And the question arises on the September 2015 events of the year that took place in Tajikistan, when former members of the armed forces of the United Tajik Opposition, ruled by Muhiddin Kabiri, attempted a coup d'état, isn’t it possible to follow Iran’s events? Iran did not even remember the factor of the cultural and historical community of the Iranian and Tajik people.
Speaking about Iran’s support of terrorists, let me remind you of the active cooperation and patronage of the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah.
In the middle of 2013, when the foreign ministers of the EU countries decided to include the military wing of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement into the category of terrorist organizations, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi spoke out against the European Union’s decision to introduce the military wing of the Lebanese Hezbollah to the category of terrorist organizations and declared this action contrary to all the provisions of the law .
Hezbollah members were invited to attend the last conference in Tehran on Islamic unity.
It is possible that Iran’s plans are to create an extremist group similar to Hezbollah on the IRPT platform, which will adversely affect the situation both in Tajikistan and in the Central Asia region as a whole. And the first steps towards this were made at the last international conference.
Today, Iran is preparing to become a full-fledged member of the SCO, as uneasy relations with the EU and the US are pushing it to search for new partners. Certainly, membership in the SCO will allow Iran to be one of the countries participating in integration education, along with two countries that have the status of a permanent member of the UN Security Council. In this case, the support of Tajikistan was very important to Iran, which has repeatedly expressed readiness to discuss this topic at the SCO summits. However, Iran’s positive attitude and positive attitude towards destructive forces in the person of the IRP trying to reanimate the 90’s Tajik events, by creating chaos and unrest, and even using weaponsrather, they will put before Tajikistan the question of using their vote against Iran’s entry into the SCO. We should not forget that the priority cooperation in the framework of the SCO is to unite efforts in the fight against the "three evil forces" - terrorist, separatist and extremist activities. A paradoxical situation is emerging, Iran, aspiring to the SCO, does not hide its trusting relationship and its support to terrorists and extremists.
It should also be noted that after joining the integration union, it is possible to expect Iran to use the SCO’s rostrum for its own opportunistic purposes and to sound its political ambitions. This circumstance causes the wariness of the main participants of the organization, Russia and China.
Analyzing the relations between Russia and China with the Islamic Republic of Iran, we can say that there is positive cooperation, but these countries do not always support Iran’s activities in the Middle East and Central Asia. Often the activities of Iran cause headaches to seemingly allies, which Russia and China are to Iran.
In conclusion, I would like to say that Iran’s recent actions have shown this country as an unreliable partner playing very dirty games. This should serve as a warning to other countries trying to establish positive relations with it.
