The ban on Iran’s inability to import advanced weapons from Russia is about to become history. Russia and other countries are clearing all obstacles and preparing to provide Iran with advanced weapons and equipment.
According to the latest report from the Straits Times quoting Qatar Al Jazeera, Iranian Navy Commander Major General Hanzadi issued a statement recently stating that Tehran has signed a maritime defense memorandum with friendly countries such as Russia, and the parties will support each other within the framework agreement of the memorandum.
It is reported that the United Nations sanctions on Iran’s arms embargo will expire this year, which opens the door for the country to purchase advanced weapons from friendly countries such as Russia. After Iran and Russia signed a maritime defense memorandum, in addition to strengthening maritime security cooperation relations between Iran and friendly countries, it also created favorable conditions for Russia and other countries to provide Iran with advanced weapons.
As we all know, after Iran was sanctioned by the UN Security Council arms embargo because of the Iranian nuclear issue, it was unable to obtain advanced foreign weapons and equipment. This forced Iran to strengthen its national defense strength through self-reliance. Due to the limitation of technological level, although Iran has developed many types of missile systems with advanced performance in recent years, it has lagged far behind other Gulf countries in the development of conventional equipment for the land, sea and air forces.
As the United States withdraws from the Iran nuclear agreement, it will impose extreme pressure on Iran, including economic sanctions and military threats. In the face of military threats from superpowers, although Iran has threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz and shot down U.S. military drones, it has shown a determination to carry it to the end with the United States, but objectively speaking, due to the comparison of military strength Too much disparity. Once a large-scale war breaks out, Iran will not be able to avoid the consequences of the devastating blow from the United States.
With the signing of a maritime defense memorandum with Russia and other countries, Iran will be able to obtain advanced weapons and equipment from Russia and other countries in the future without any obstacles. In this regard, Sanders, a U.S. Pentagon intelligence analyst, pointed out that in the future Iran may purchase from Russia including S-400 air defense systems, “Fortress” anti-ship missile systems, Su-35 fighters and T-90 tanks, covering land, sea and air. Advanced weapons and equipment, this also makes the United States dilemma.
It can be said with certainty that with the deepening of the military cooperation relationship between Iran and Russia and other friendly countries, over time, Iran ’s land, sea, and air force weapons and equipment will be changed to the current backward state and displayed in a completely new face to the Gulf countries. Coupled with the current advantages of ground-attack missiles, Iran will then have more confidence and launch a more powerful challenge to the United States’ hegemonic position in the Middle East.
At the same time, Iran, which is about to acquire advanced weapons provided by Russia, will implement more effective control over the Strait of Hormuz and its surrounding waters, which will undoubtedly greatly limit the “free navigation” of the US Navy in this generation of waters. Activities, it is no wonder that the United States will feel distressed.
At current sensitive moments in Iran due to the killing of Suleimani, missile attacks on U.S. military bases in Iran, and possible retaliatory strikes by the United States, Russia and other countries signed a maritime defense memorandum at this sensitive time point. What this will mean, the United States should know better than anyone. What’s more, according to the latest report by the Straits Times, during this period, Russia also promised “to intend to help Iran build military forces in the Persian Gulf.” It seems to reveal the possibility that Russia may intervene in the situation in Iran when necessary.
There is no doubt that at this time, Russia and other countries signed a maritime defense memorandum with Iran to determine the military partnership between Iran and these countries. The intention of Russia and other countries in this move is very clear, that is, they are sharpening the knife against Iran. Huo Huo ’s United States sends a clear signal: Iran is not a child who is not hurt now. With us, you can try it in the United States.
It can be seen that, in the context of Iran’s retaliatory attack on Iran, Russia and other countries have established a military partnership with Iran while importing advanced foreign weapons for Iran and strengthening their ability to fight against the United States. It can also play a significant role in deterring the United States’ possible determination of military retaliation against Iran, which is crucial to alleviating the current tension in the Middle East and maintaining peace and stability in the region.
