Russia and Iran Increase Ties

Are we back in the "Cold War", or what?

From Islamic Republic News Agency


Secretary of Russian National Security Council Igor Ivanov said on Thursday that expansion of ties with Iran enjoys a priority in his country's foreign policy.

In a meeting with Iran's special envoy Ali-Akbar Velayati, he said Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stressed the importance of bolstering ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Terming his recent visit to Tehran as fruitful, he briefed Velayati on the topics he raised with Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran.

Expansion of bilateral cooperation both in regional and international arena will benefit both sides, he added.

Velayati, for his part, said Ivanov's recent visit to Tehran was of special significance and that the visit could play a turning point in bilateral cooperation.

Velayati said that his current visit to Moscow was in response to that constructive step taken by Ivanov.

He further praised key role played by Ivanov in expansion of Tehran-Moscow strategic ties.

Velayati arrived in Moscow Wednesday to confer with senior Russian officials on Iran's peaceful nuclear program.

No surprise there about Russia supporting Iran. Most of the Iranian military equipment are made in Russia.

This shows why the invasion of Iran should be combined with selective air strikes on support sites for Iran in southern Russia.

Total economic sanctions on Russia would be far more effective.

It would bring the Kremlin to its knees without firing a shot.

Yours in Peace.
