Iran And Russia On Their Way To New Level Of Partnership

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

The coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on the development of global international cooperation. The bilateral partnership between Russia and Iran, which was hardened by restrictive measures, is returning to its normal course. Visits of high-ranking officials are resumed. So, on August 22, the Iranian Defense Minister, Amir Khatami, arrived in Moscow to hold talks with Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu. A few days earlier, on August 18, the head of the Iranian foreign Ministry, Mohammad Javad Zarif, also flew to Russia to meet with President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The Iranian delegations were among the first to arrive in Moscow after the lifting of quarantine restrictions, which underlines the paramount importance of restoring the former level of cooperation between the two sides.

Foremost, Russia and Iran resume cooperation in the military sphere. The Iranian security Minister held talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu, and also visited the VI International Military-Technical Forum “Army 2020”.

“Cooperation between Iran and Russia on defense and military issues is gaining an accelerated pace every day. A new chapter of cooperation between Iran and Russia in the military-technical sphere is on the way,” said Qasem Jalali, the Iranian Ambassador to Russia.

Amir Khatami’s visit took place before the start of the International Army Games, which started on August 23 in conjunction with the forum, and in which the military forces of Iran participate, among others. The Defense Minister met with officers and soldiers that were sent to Russia to participate in competitions between military police units in the section known as “Guards of order”.

The VI Army international games “Army-2020” include 31 international competitions that are held on the territory of 11 countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, India, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, Russia and Uzbekistan, as well as Iran. 90 countries, including NATO member countries, were invited to participate.

The military-technical cooperation between Russia and Iran is increasing as a response to US hostile pressure. A new agreement for the purchase of military weapons to Iran is expected to be signed soon. Firstly, the Tehran’s interest is turned to electronic warfare systems, coastal defense systems and S-400 missile system. New contracts for the purchase of such military equipment to Iran will certainly cause further concern from Washington establishment.

The priority of expanding strategic cooperation for the two sides is evidenced by the visit of Iranian foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who flew to Moscow from Ankara, where he discussed with his Turkish counterpart the preparation of an Astana format summit on Syria.

This time, Zarif visited Moscow for the 30th time. He noted that he had probably broken records for the frequency of visits to Russia among all foreign Ministers. His previous visit took place on June 16.

The main purpose of such a soon arrival in Moscow was to hold talks with the Russian Foreign Minister. However, in addition to meeting with Sergey Lavrov, Zarif managed to hold a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, to whom he allegedly passed a message from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, despite the fact that the leaders of the countries had communicated by phone a few days before the meeting. Details of the conversation between Zarif and Putin were not disclosed. Meetings of high-level diplomats with the highest level leaders of another country always reflect the special significance and importance of issues on the agenda of international relations.

Among the questions discussed during the talks of the foreign Ministers in Moscow, there were: the military situation in Syria, a common regional agenda, bilateral cooperation, including the implementation of joint projects in the fields of energy, transport and agriculture, as well as already “traditional” discussions of the preservation of the Iran nuclear deal.

Numerous negotiations have led to positive results. Moscow and Tehran agreed to conclude a new cooperation agreement that will replace the Agreement on the basis of relations and principles of cooperation between the Russian Federation and Iran, signed in 2001 for ten years with automatic extension every five years. The Iranian side expressed its commitment to renew the agreement that should address the current international challenges and threats. Moscow also agreed to the need to update the basis of bilateral cooperation in order to enhance it.

“We agreed today that 20 years is a long time, ” Sergey Lavrov said, answering that during this time there have been” serious, deep changes in the international arena”, new threats have appeared — terrorism, different types of organized crime, climate change and viruses.

Both sides will start working together to develop a new document. The next extension of the agreement from 2001 is planned in 8 months. Even if the new agreement is not developed until then, its extension is not threatened in any case.

One of the main areas of cooperation between Iran and Russia in the international arena is the ongoing struggle to preserve the nuclear deal within the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). After withdrawing from the JCPOA two years ago, the US continues its sanctions policy against Iran. In response to the measures taken by the US, Iran suspended part of its obligations under the JCPOA in two stages. In the summer of 2019, Iran announced that it was beginning the process of enriching uranium at a level higher than the 3.67% required by the nuclear deal.

“Touching this package means absolutely destroying resolution 2231 and the JCPOA,” the Iranian foreign Minister said.

Actually, leading European countries, France and Germany, which make part of JCPOA, do not support the US policy. The European Union expressed regret over Washington’s decision to restore sanctions. For its part, Tehran proclaimed that it would comply with the terms of the nuclear agreement if the European Union compensated for the damage caused by Washington’s sanctions. The EU took several measures to support Iran. For example, Iran was disconnected from the SWIFT international interbank system in 2018. In one year, France, Germany, and the UK officially launched a settlement tool with Iran designed to preserve trade and economic relations and prevent European companies from falling under US anti-Iranian sanctions. The tool for circumventing US sanctions was named INSTEX (Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges).

The European reaction encourages Moscow and Tehran to pursue an active policy aimed at preserving the nuclear deal. This approach is also supported by China.

Iran And Russia On Their Way To New Level Of Partnership

Iran and Moscow are working closely on a military solution to the settlement in Syria. The both sides proclame the importance of maintaining the “Astana format”, in which Turkey, Iran and Russia take joint actions to resolve the Syrian crisis. Moscow and Tehran emphasise the need to continue cooperation, and the importance of strengthening bilateral contacts on this issue.

Today’s frequency of high-level contacts between the two sides signals an encreasing partnership between Iran and Russia. In the current international situation, it is advantageous for both Tehran and Moscow to inter in a new high level of cooperation as soon as possible, given the growing pressure exerted from across the Atlantic ocean.

The сommitment to update the foundations of cooperation between Iran and Russia is resulted from the changing political environment in the region and the degree of involvement of various actors in the regional agenda. The U.S. is loosing influence and reduces its activity in the region. Israel’s successful foreign policy has led to the normalization of relations with the UAE, which in turn is challenging Saudi Arabia. France is increasing its presence in the region. Turkey continues to pursue an active policy. The configuration of new alliances begins to be viewed. In so doing, these alliances will be very flexible, and there will definitely be more than two of them. Under these conditions, the partnership between Moscow and Tehran will be beneficial.

Iran And Russia On Their Way To New Level Of Partnership

IMF, Iran: Real GDP growth

Today, Iran is experiencing significant economic problems due to the coronavirus pandemic, and they are likely to worsen in the coming months. Meanwhile, neither Russia nor Iran can pursue a less active regional policy. This will create a void that will be quickly filled by other stakeholders in the region.

At the same time, the national interests of Russia and Iran coincide only partially. This is what determines that they are rather tactical partners then strategic allies.

However, today Russia and Iran are not strategic partners, but tactical ones. The main factor linking the two sides is political support in the international arena, which is not backed by the necessary level of economic cooperation. At the same time, interaction in the economic sphere is complicated by the fact that both countries are competitors in the world oil market, as well as potential rivals in the gas sector.

The long-term cooperation between the two sides seems very vague, given the completely different approaches to conducting policy in the Middle East. Russia adheres to a multi-vector policy. Taking advantage of the fact that the US presence in the region is decreasing, it has the opportunity to strengthen its influence. Despite growing ambitions to increase its influence in the region, Russia does not have the necessary capacity to secure its own position in the region. It has no interests in the region other than economic ones, but the investment, technological and infrastructure capabilities of Russia-based corporations are limited. At the same time, the number of threats on its Western border continues to grow. In the Middle East, Russia is not interested in increasing its military presence; it seeks to create a regional political order that will be based on a balance between the various parties. Within this framework, Russia does not play the central role, but represents the final pound, which have the power to restore the necessary balance of regional order in accordance with the situation.This forces Moscow to use multilateral cooperation in order to secure its position as the main external mediator that leads to varying degrees of cooperation with Iran’s rival countries, such as Israel, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, etc. This should not satisfy Iran, which is striving to establish a leading position in the region. On the other hand, the emergence of a dominant force as Iran in the Middle East is also unprofitable for Russia.

Moscow and Tehran maintain close cooperation on issues of a global nature, without engaging areas where their interests are not complementary. At the same time, differences do not prevent the parties from building a fairly stable partnership. The main reason for this stability is the need to counter a common rival. Given the continuing influence of a fairly high level of the United States in the region, as well as on the global stage, bilateral cooperation between Russia and Iran seems to continue to strengthen in the coming years. In addition, there is a development of trilateral cooperation with the main counterweight of the United States, China. So, the intention to hold regular joint exercises with Russia and China was expressed by the Iranian Defense Minister Amir Khatami during his last visit to Moscow.

Keep dreaming
Iran and Russia have very intelligent leaders
no Turk approach (the way how you would do things with knife in the back)

Servet Köseoğlu

leave instruction book provided by kremlin and drink cold water…ı dont have time for your stereotypes..you are the one who are accusing iranians to leave syria and to do nothing etc etc..ps:considering your huge debts at military industry maybe 200+ su-30 or su-35 makes you close eyes for iran..admit it….you are weather-cock..

Антон С

Iran can buy not less.

Servet Köseoğlu

yes…200 and over…pompeo announce 3 weeks ago:one way or other we dont allow iran to get jets…we’ll see

HiaNd

India has bought 300 SU-30MKI
and now they are doing “Super Sukhoi” upgrade program turning their SU-30 into Su-35 as much as they can.
So SU-30 can’t be so bad after all not to mention Brahmos (Oniks) anti ship air to ground super sonic missile capability

Servet Köseoğlu

no one claims and can claim su variants bad..if someone claims su-30 poor,ı will block him(dont like people shitting here without military knowledge or copy-paste info).. Su30MKI/MKM/MKA Bars-M is still very capable even for today standards but could not match the latest AESA like Raven-ES, APG63v3 and APG83…su-30 can be only very deadly with super-sonic missiles like oniks-brahmos against china..against pakistan they can use r-27 and r-73..but india is stupid country who is asking burger king whopper menu at mc donalds..they dont have a long-term strategy..

HiaNd

OK ?..unlike Turkey of course !
With Turkey “long term strategy” is very clear you have no clue about your long term strategy because everything is suspended

Servet Köseoğlu

did ı mention something about Turkey?we are 2nd tier country with 15 billion usd military budget..what did you expect us to do?5th gen.jets and -s400 long range systems in 5-10 years…wake up..we are trying to decrease the dependency to us as much as we can..first missiles(air-to air,anti-ship etc) then radars and go on..lots of things…bordering with greece,iran,bulgaria,armenia,syria,georgia,ıraq..even current army is enough for them..ps:gaining know-how of tactical-operation missiles from china at may 2000 exactly is a solid proof we have strategy and us is cheeky bastard to never trust with..

“The aircraft is tailor-made for Indian specifications and integrates Indian systems and avionics as well as French and Israeli sub-systems.[9] It has abilities similar to the Sukhoi Su-35 with which it shares many features and components.[b][10]”

So I guess even here we did our part.

It has nothing to do with me,… but I can complain when your snake friends and would be bots for Iran ….that attack Russia all the time turn suddenly 100% pro Turk and practically anti-Assad.
I don’t know who is who here any longer

Servet Köseoğlu

There were 2 or 3 war between Iran and Russia. Last one was 200 years ago. Iran lost Dagestan and Azerbaijan. And 12 wars with Turkey, not including multilateral conflicts as WWI.

HiaNd

I know that there were a wars Anton!
Lucky that Russia have good relations with Turk “brothers” huh?(that is SARCASM)

There was war against China also but those are things of the past !!
Or am I wrong ?
And you are maybe Turkic origin Russian trying to push Turk agenda and interests here?

Антон С

I’m just saying that Iran doesn’t look like enemy, especially in comparison with Turkey. So our turkish pal is wrong.

Servet Köseoğlu

no one is enemy..especially turkey is absolutely not enemy of russia..in fact there is not an classic understanding enemy in this post-truth era..mutual interests thats all..

Антон С

“Post-truth” is euphemism of lies. Era of lies is not for us.

Servet Köseoğlu

yes but thats how it works now..who has the ability to see truth is afortunate guy with 3rd eye..

Антон С

All these lying politicians know real state of things, but prefer lies for own benefit. Aggressive ideology (as modern liberalism and expansionism) can make them to believe own lies, as sectarians believe to the sect leader, but many of them still can separate lies from truth.

ha ha ha true snake!

you can only masturbate with your feet…thats all..try with your hands..

Than say it like that clearly please!
Because for the moment I was not sure on whose side you are…
Thanks for clarification.
We all know the Russian relations with the Turkey.

Why than people here love so much to accuse “Putin to be in bed with Erdogan” (the same people that immediately after that kiss Turk ass like Zionism=EVIL)
When nothing can’t be further from the truth!
Russia had very hard time to get over of killings of pilots and crews (done by Turk manpads and Turk F-16)and to normalize relations with Turkey!

Those would be pro Russians (Iranan) bots have no problem every day humiliating Russia and than glorifying Erdogan
Something is wrong here

Cooperation between Iran and Russia is much more than strategic, it is existential for both countries, and it also applies to China. Empires die by committing suicide and try to bring with them as much destruction as they can, this is also the case of the outlawed US empire, the strengthening of inter-Asian relations serves to avoid being dragged into the abyss, the fate that will surely befall the vassals of NATO, in this regard it must be emphasized that the Russian Federation in recent years has bought Iranian oil to help overcome illegal sanctions, the same for China, more than official statements it is the facts that must be referred to, Russia without replacing itself to no one does he defend the many victims of the empire he uses outlaws and he does not do it because they are good but because it is in his long-term strategic interest.

HiaNd

I have impression that is little bit idyllic….your presentation…
In real life everything is seen strictly through interests only.
“Strategic” is very big word and usually goes with military pact and China and Russia are not yet there let alone Russia and Iran.

I would to call it marriage out of mutual interests.
But not more than that.
Russia is very careful and builds mutual relations through longer periods of time and gradually.
Nothing abrupt ever.

The globalist Ziocorporate terrorists achieved supremacy in the Middle East because they didn’t hold back on giving the Ziowahhabis and, especially, the Rothschild neocolony in Palestine, top notch military tech, with full tech-industrial production capacity transfers for the latter. Something similar with Japan and S. Korea. Creating true multipolarity will require that and also cooperation in the military intelligence and sociopolitical and economic spheres, anything less can be easily toppled with a color revolution or a coup like Brazil in 2016.

Miri Nature

Hahahaha I really liked your explanation so clear and using super words like Ziocorporate and Neocolony, Ziowahabis , top notch military tech. Bolsonaro Brasil coup :D :D :D
Totally agree with you.

How’s that related to the topic?

On top China is allay both of Iran and Russia…
Don’t you think you are bit over the top with post like that?
Only US and NATO Western idiots and Jew or two here can be supportive of the “news” you are trying to push here.
Conflict between China and India is 100% counterproductive to anti Western-Zionist alliance.
You are maybe at the wrong place?
How about posting that on some NATO forum ?
You’ll make them happy I am sure.

And where did I say I “hated” India or “loved” China you narrow minded simpleton?
If you keep jumping on your own conclusions and keep putting YOUR words in my mouth than that is not conversation!

Again
China is allay both of Russia and Iran while you post basically anti-China “news” on wrong place !

Iran will obviously be looking to purchase new military equipment once the arms ban expires in October but it all depends really on what Russia or China is prepared to sell them. Irans economy has taken a big hit with sanctions & covid so their budget will have many spending constraints.

HiaNd

Loans combination?
Turkey has bought S-400 on loans from Russia isn’t it?
So how much more Iran should have preferable position….as an “allay’ of some kind..

Money doesn’t exist in nature. Gold, silver, oil, gas, agricultural products do exist in nature, also there’s the chance to give investor prerogatives to Russians. Any Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline will be better than a Saudi-Jordan-Israel one.

Russia sold, well better said traded and still trade weapons for some other goods.

Servet Köseoğlu

”barter” is still fine-working way of trade exchange between countries..if ı am not mistaken example:sukhois for palm-oil..https://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2017/08/08/sukhois-for-palm-oil-russia-and-indonesia-announce-new-barter-arrangement/

HB_Norica

Russia will never allow the USA to get a base on the Caspian sea and Iran is a key component of China’s BRI as well as an increasingly important oil supplier.

They’ll find a way for Iran to get the weapons she needs.

Tommy Jensen

US is already in Kazakhstan with training facilities and naval base……………..LOL

shylockracy

What’s clear is that Russia and China won’t be world powers if they refuse to change global geopolitical realities, and that includes supporting strategically important countries like Iran and Venezuela to develop their defense capabilities to guard the vast natural resources they own. Multipolarity shouldn’t be contained to the territory of Russia or China and alternative socioeconomic and trade models need to be helped develop and that requires getting rid of US$ and euro exchages and taking investor development power away from the Wall St./City of London/WEF types.

HiaNd

Being world power is not identical to running charitable organizations…weapons must be bought, paid or exchanged for something of the value.
Venezuela is bankrupted at the moment.

Антон С

It’s manmade bankruptcy by foreign pressure. Technically Venezuela have enough resources to provide own agenda inside own country at least. It’s not failed state. And they are paying enough for import goods. Charity is bad choice, proven by history.

shylockracy

Charity and philanthropy are a tool of the global Ziocorporate terrorists to keep their tight grip on weak nations and destroy any chances of real progress. Venezuela has more than resources enough to pay for military tech transfers without any so-called “charity” involved.

HiaNd

That is exactly the point Anton!
To which point can something be paid with un-extracted “oil” or minerals?
Russian companies (was it Rosneft?) have stopped their operations in Venezuela
How to get ones money back when one has problems with permanent US sanctions, pressure,with CIA tricks and coups, and state department color revolutions all the time?
It is huge risque investing in countries without military protection involved

Alberto Garza

venezuela is a shithole created by the socialists.

shylockracy

Shithole is what you have for brains. Venezuela led development in Latin America until 2012-13 when sanctions and sabotage picked up under the Obama regime. History is no secret except for scum and ignorants like you.

I would be careful about trusting Putin Iran, very careful.

America and Russia in the 1990s: This is what real meddling looks like
It’s hard to imagine having more direct control over a foreign country’s political system — short of a straight-up military occupation.

“How totally subservient was Russia to America? Well, consider this: Thanks to recently declassified presidential transcripts, we know that in 1999 Boris Yeltsin called up Bill Clinton to tell him that Vladimir Putin would be his hand-picked presidential successor months before anyone in Russia knew, and all but asked Clinton for his nod of approval. ”

The more Russia and China work with Iran the better for us, then we can ignore Russia’s interests too in Syria and ignore China’s interests in Iran.

Ilya

Ignoring others is the highest form of bullying. Look at how Israel reacts to the BDS movement!

Waking up the people are..

<>

Let me say it clearly to you Ilya, if you arm Iran with new weapons that you know damn well that will be used against us, Israel should make it clear that we no longer respect your interests in Syria and that means we can take down Assad whenever we decide to. We can do that, and it will hurt you badly in Syria.

Servet Köseoğlu

thats a very big claim…taking down Assad militarily takes you to direct confrontation with Russia in the blink of an eye

<>

Then what? can they send 500-600K Russian soldiers to confront us? it will start WW3.

Servet Köseoğlu

not that much but you have to find ”common language” so do you really expect russia to pack its suitcase and go?you really have to offer something diamond to twist their mind..quickly declaring war means you lost the ability to build-up dialogue which means discrediting other nations..its very dangerous..

<>

I look at it from a military prespective, selling more weapons to Iran means more weapons at the hands of Hezbollah and other Shia proxies across the ME. That is something the U.S, Israel and the GCC can not accept or allow to happen. Even more so, if some Russian AD systems will be sold to Iran and then they place them inside Syria or Lebanon to be used against us, that would force us to act and not just by airstrikes.

Servet Köseoğlu

ı know your blood-feud but its non-continuable..shitloads of weapon sold to iran starting with type-63 mlrs ending with kamikaze drons already..iran has symbiotic ties with china..and russia to some extent…any way we have to wait october..ps:we are talking about jets not ad systems..

Jets, AD systems, ships, whatever Russia and China want to sell them after the embargo ends. I don’t believe our top brass can ignore it, question is what the political leadership decides to do.

Why always look outside? Why not turn your gaze inwards, and act benevolently to the nations around you – a light unto the nations.

If Israel was a source for optimism within the Middle East, Iran would only hurt itself by attacking Israel.

But Israel is the chihuahua, constantly barking at the wolf through all of its insecurities. Surely after thousands of years, consciousness could look in the mirror and change!

India is not even close match today (except in number of soldiers)
China has well trained very modern well equipped army comparing to India

Go shit behind your house (the way you do every day) poor sod; you are not comparable in power to neither of two!
Only global word powers are US,Russia and China

Putin Apologist

Yeah, I’m sure the IDF was real concerned about Russia’s interests in Syria and China’s interests in Iran.

You hurt us, we can hurt you back. Simple.

Putin Apologist

It’s one thing for Israel to f**k with its neighbors, especially when the Americans are paying the bills, but Russia and China are way out Israel’s league.

<>

Don’t be so sure of that, it if comes to a conflict our supply lines are much shorter than Russia or China. We can just get supplies from the East Med and send it straight to Syria or Lebanon, and let’s not forget we can put up a 700K force on the ground. Don’t fuck with our national security, and don’t arm Iran with new weapons against us, so it won’t come to that.

Putin Apologist

Okay, but I’m afraid I’ve some bad news about “arm[ing] Iran with new weapons”. It looks like the Russian and Iranian militaries had a recent get-together, and it would be my guess, the Russians brought their fall catalogs with them. What with October being less than two months away. And our Chinese friends can’t be too far behind. I think it is really down to how much money the Iranians have and want to spend.

At a minimum Iran should upgrade its air defenses given that Washington is forever threatening to bomb the place. I’m thinking some long range fighter-interceptors and a few AWAC assets would be a good start, and these would be considered defensive weapons. What do you think?

<>

The problem is, it won’t be only defensive weapons. Fighter Jets can be used to attack, also they can send the AD systems Russia gives them into Syria so it won’t be defensive at all. I don’t care about Russia, I care that Iran is working to hurt Israelis anyway they can. We won’t let it happen.

Iran is far more strategically important for Russia than Syria, nothing to do with your petty rivalry/hate against Teheran.

here is a semi-fictional scene (from “W”) but very well explained why Iran is so important for everyone.

Blockade of Iran has ended! Too bad that it started, there was nothing positive created by such measure. You cant’ break such strong will states by economic pressure, it makes people inside such countries be sure that policy of their state is right, if obvious enemies trying to weaken you. More pressure = more will to resist. It’s like a compression spring.

Iran, don’t let Russia sweet talk you out of buying the weapons you need. Russia is always going to try to sell you their second grade stuff to make everyone else happy. You need at least one full squadron of Mig31’s.

While the Mig31 is less expensive and older than the Su35 but it’s better at keeping the B52’s and B2’s on Diego Garcia out of your airspace. It a long range, high altitude, very high speed interceptor. It’s the best aircraft for that job. Russia’s going to try to talk you into the Su24 or even Su22’s. Don’t fall for it. Don’t settle for anything less than the Mig31 or buy from the Chinese.

Servet Köseoğlu

su-24,su-22?…iran is still using old-school f-4and f-4d and planning to use until 2030…any country who seriously think to buy shitty su-24 or su-22 deserves extinction…

HiaNd

MIG-31 fun club creator …..and general manager…t-shirts and cups coming out soon

chris chuba

Pretty certain that the Russians made it specifically to intercept strategic, nuclear bombers. They needed something super fast w/long range, and good electronics to cover the massive frontier against infiltration. That it was more like a high speed AWAC. While the U.S. keeps squawking about the F35 being ‘the quarterback’ that the Mid31 pioneered that capability.

CENTCOM would have a fit. It would turn Diego Garcia into a parking lot where B52’s taxi back and forth during Pence / Cotton visits.

HiaNd

Chris that was just stupid joke(I thought it was obvious), no need to get defensive or too serious..

Yes of course I agree; MIG-31 is “interceptor” so that jet was made for intercepting.
Russia is the biggest country, they need something like that

chris chuba

No offense taken.
I’m wondering how much Iran would need to make it an effective deterrent which is what I hope. I don’t want to see U.S. pilots get flamed, just the lunatic Congressman get some respect for Iranian airspace. Iran would need some long range RADAR to assist any interceptions. I kind of recall a story of Iran building out an array for that purpose a few years back.

HiaNd

I would be very surprised that they don’t have them already.
Didn’t you find odd that Iran was announcing so many new missiles in last one year period.
There might be some tech cooperation between them and Russia and China.In simple words these countries are getting ready for war (and I am talking about ALL 3 of them)
IF the US pilots receive order for attack they will face very tough cookie in Iran defenses and not only pilots but Navy too.
I think that Iran is ready for US attack.
The “proof”for that is in missile retaliation for General Soleimani’s assassination.
They would not do that if they were defensless against massive US attack

Alberto Garza the biggest number of registered patents by far are coming out of China today!
Number of trained engineers is huge compared even to US.
Reality check up needed

Ivan Freely

Well, if Iran can’t get the Mig-31 then the Chinese J-10C is most likely on the table. It would be interesting to see if the Chinese offer the FC-31/35. Israel would go ballistic.

Putin Apologist

MiG-31s, along with a few Beriev A-100 AWACS, would be excellent choices for defending Iran’s vast and mountainous territory. The Shah bought the F-14 and was in the process of buying E-3 AWACS planes for the same reason. And these two planes would be considered totally defensive weapons.

But the Su24 and Su22, neither of which are still in production, are both attack aircraft. I think the Iranians are smart enough to know the difference.

Lux et Veritas

Iranians are very smart people and know what they are doing.

Lux et Veritas

In the long run Iran is better off buying Chines or joint-production.

Iran’s contribution to regional progress is it’s ability to counter Zionist economic terrorism. And forge new financial procedures to operate profitably outside of the Israel/NATO/GCC zio block. And it’s Yinon plan forever war against the region, and Jew world order hegemony drive against humanity. This is the missing link that in conjunction with advances in military and security spheres. Is driving the reordering of regional political developments.

Turkey is also clearly moving to operate independently outside of the ziosphere. I read recently that Turkey has been completely cut off from all US defense procurements. If this extends to aircraft. Then it makes maintaining Turkey’s fleet of aging F-16s more difficult.

Getting Iraq on board with shifting to outside of the ziosphere will alter the balance of regional and world power away from the zioshpere. It will bring about the end of the Syrian war, with the exception of Al-Tanf. Allow Turkey to make a negotiated withdrawal from northern Syria once the zioKurd threat of Israelistan/KRGll on Turkey’s southern border is gone with the departure of the US from NE Syria. And if something can be worked out with the Syrian and possibly Jordanian governments. Allow a redeployment of of the Turkish military to bases in Syria and Jordan. As part of regional coalition for use against Israel.

The Covid19 worldwide pandemic has allowed us all to compare how different political systems, countries and cultures reacted to the threat. In a year or so, we shall all know how free-market capitalism compares with social-democracies or socialist countries.

Brazil Deaths/million population 570
