Iran and Syria: friendship, billions of dollars, espionage against Israel, and 50 tons of uranium

Opening January 15 in Tehran, an international meeting at the highest level, the Secretary of the Prime Minister of Syria Tayseer al-Zuabi and advisor to the First Vice President of Iran Kazemi Qumi discussed the development of trade and economic relations between the two countries-name. The Iranian side expressed readiness of the Islamic Republic of experience to share with Syria to overcome the crisis, and the Syrian side expressed its gratitude to the people and government of Iran for the support they have given to Syria in confrontation sanctions.

At a later in the day meeting with Syrian Prime Minister Wael Nader al-Khaliq, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have, that the full increase in the Iranian-Syrian relations will benefit the peoples of 2-states and will have a stimulating effect on the peace and development of the Middle Eastern region. Comrade Ahmadinejad asked the two countries to the development of the scope of the forthcoming comprehensive economic cooperation.

At the same time the head of the Iranian country looked forward to an early end, "conspiracy" against Syria, the restoration of peace and stability there.

In turn, Wael Nader al-Khaliq said that Syria is subjected to economic pressure from the West. In addition, he said that the opposition does damage infrastructure. But, he said, the Syrian people, of course, will stand all tests.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad pointed to the difficulties imposed by the Syrian people and said:

"There is no adequate solution to the crisis, not counting the cessation of violence, the merits of public understanding and conduct of elections in Syria, does not exist. We pray for the fact that the Syrians through hope, cheerfulness and unanimity overcome the difficult conditions imposed by this people. "

The Iranian president has confirmed the expansion of relations between Tehran and Damascus and then called for the use of the economic potentials of 2-states for the benefit of 2-people.

Syrian Prime Minister in reply saw that imperialism is trying to put on Syrian people economic pressure, but the Syrians are intensely resist foreign domination. Also fellow al-Halki referred merits of Iranians in different spheres of pride for all-independent freedom-loving peoples of the world, noting that the Syrian people very happy success of Iran.

On the same day, negotiations between the Syrian Prime Minister and other members of the Iranian government. In the end, the two sides were meeting with a unanimous condemnation of the actions of nations of the West, interfering in the internal affairs of Syria.

January 16 representative of the Supreme Spiritual favorite Iran and Secretary of State Security of the Islamic Republic Saeed Jalili met with Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halki. Comrade Jalili praised the role of the Syrian people in the resistance to external aggression. At this meeting we were talking about Israel.

Secretary of Iran's State Security said, that the destruction of public facilities, infrastructure, industrial facilities, pipelines and power lines focused on the harm to the Syrian people. He said that we can not allow the Zionist regime of Israel and its sponsors reach harmful purposes. Saeed Jalili also said that the policies of the West and other state sponsors of terrorism can not be justified. Syrian Prime Minister in response said that terrorist elements destroying the infrastructure of cities in order to put pressure on the civilians. Having said that, the pressure on Syria comes from the Zionist regime and the West, Comrade al-Halki explained it — Revenge of the Syrian people for their support of the patriotic forces of the Zionist resistance.

Columnist "Voice of Russia" Vladimir Sazhin recalls that even before the start of the conflict in Syria the main foreign investor in the country was just Iran. However, many joint plans because of the Syrian war have not been realized.

Yet now, when both countries were in the ring of the blockade, according to Tayseer al-Zuabi, "the removal of all obstacles to the development of trade and economic and monetary cooperation, which would strengthen bilateral relations." Advisor of Iranian Vice-President Hassan Kazemi Qumi said in turn that Tehran and Damascus "will combine their capabilities to counter the economic blockade."

So Makar, facing a common enemy, the two countries decided to join forces.

Recently the conflict in 2011 between Iran and Syria reached an agreement on the seventeen Fri: envisaged cooperation in the fields of trade, investment, industry, transport and communications, agriculture and many others. In addition, an agreement was reached on the construction of the Iran — Iraq — Syria — Lebanon — Mediterranean (transaction price — $ 10 billion. Dollars). These plans can be called an attempt to integrate the economies of large 2-countries. It was planned to create an Iranian-Syrian bank with a central office in Damascus.

But plainclothes war in Syria, supporting the West and by some Arab countries, crossed all economic integration plans in 2011. Now in Syria, inflation, food shortages — and this against the background of a frisky municipal spending growth, as almost two years at war. Syria is virtually alone confronts not only the so-called "opposition" (CCA), and mercenaries from various countries, right up to the fighters of the "Al-Qaeda", dreaming of global sharia, and some countries in Western Europe, where a Sharia state Syria, too, dream of many brutal face of the Arab neighborhoods.

Iran's economy by constricting sanctions the EU and the U.S., too, is going through the best of times. As recalls Vladimir Sazhin, the lawful currency of Iran, too, had fallen. There is growing unemployment. But, fundamentally, and so a hard time Tehran is seeking the ability to support its own ally. For example, in December 2011, Ayatollah Khamenei approved the transfer of Damascus assistance in the amount of 5.8 billion. bucks. Specialists have the data, in accordance with which, in 2012, Iran provided the government of Bashar al-Assad more than $ 10 billion. U.S.

Nina Mammadov, international economist, head of the Iranian Institute of Oriental Studies, says:

"In real time when Tehran and Damascus are trying to resist the economic pressure on them and weigh Damocles sword of foreign military attack, particularly trade and economic relations between them are one of the main means of survival. While supporting the current regime of Bashar al-Assad, Tehran seeks to save his already invested in Syria means. But the main thing — to protect its previously quite strong economic position in the country. After all, before the start of the conflict Iranian business took quite a notable place in the economic life of Syria. "

Recent high-level talks and just focus on the restoration of economic cooperation between Iran and Syria. The two countries, which are trying to defeat common enemies will try to find methods for mutual survival in the criteria of international sanctions and pressure.

By the way, except for the revival of the economic component of cooperation, Syria and Iran have expressed a single point of view and in international political issues.

Parallel talks in Tehran were debates in the UN Security Council devoted to counterterrorism operations. In these debate
s Iran's permanent representative to the UN, Mohammad Khazaee said, that in the fight against terrorism should not be a place of politicization and double standards. January 15, he spoke on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement, and claimed that the international community has given assessment terrorist attack in the Syrian town of Aleppo Institute. Comrade Khazaee highlighted:

"Non-Aligned Movement has always maintained a resolute struggle against all forms of terrorism and believes that efforts in this direction should be free from politicization and double standards. In the unlikely event they will go in the wrong direction and instead of fighting terrorism will provide fertile ground for impunity. "

He believes that the counter-terrorist activities should be based on international cooperation, and the United Nations should play it as a "coordinating role."

In tone and made him ambassador to Syria in the UN Bashar Jaafari. He subjected the Security Council strongly criticized just for double standards. After all, if the Security Council takes the issue of the unity of the anti-Islamists Mali, he is blind to the danger from militants Syrian "opposition":

"Despite the recognition of the international community to the fact that in Syria and are committing horrific atrocities armed terrorist groups, including those associated with" Al-Qaeda ", some countries continue to open them to help by funding, arming, sheltering on its territory, also continue to support in the political arena and in the media. "

The issue lies in the fact, said comrade Jaafari as foreign terrorists operating in Syria now, will leave the country tomorrow, so start killing beyond.

With regard to the integration and full cooperation of Syria and Iran, the West has already begun intensive "analyze" the information on this topic. Having looked through the "free" press, which just does not know it.

On the channel "Al Arabiya", known for their own "impartiality" launched duck of the attempt on the Iranian Ambassador to Syria Mohammad Reza Sheibani. Ambassador had to refute this "news".

By "information" from the channel "Al Arabiya" when salting Iran Syria went into the building of the presidential residence in Syria — of course, surrounded by people of "Hezbollah" and, obviously, Russian troops — he was attacked. And destroyed.

For "dezoy" from the television "Al-Arabiya" is the government of Saudi Arabia.

Iranian freshest announcements and received from the Israelis.

Resource (Referring to the U.S. Department of Defense and the publication of «World Tribune») writes that Iran has deployed on the ground of Syria a "spy headquarters." This institution Tipo collects information for the "Hezbollah". There are two Fri tracking and collection of disk imaging: in the northern part of the country and the Golan Heights. However, here also confirmed that these items have tracking since 2006.

It is concluded that the observation station — only part of a wider system of tracking. Its as if the Iranians are trying to do in the Middle East and the Mediterranean.

The issue of "espionage" and makes it clear channel "Al-Arabiya", also refers to some report, "the Pentagon's counter-terrorism office." Information is one hundred percent is the same as that gleaned from the resource MIGnews «World Tribune». Specified in the report just (a month ago, by the way) has been reported that the stations were established the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps with the assistance of the Syrian government. Additional stations for spying on Israel as if you plan to install in northern Syria.

On the channel "Al Arabiya" conclude that Iran's support for the Syrian regime — is constant. The argument is the fact that on 9 January, a group of 48 Iranians captured by Syrian opposition members as hostages in Syria first of August, were released in Damascus in agreement with "the Syrian regime."

Meanwhile, Iran has insisted that the 48 Iranians — ordinary pilgrims visiting Shiite shrines in the south-east of Damascus. Tehran denies that some of them consisted in the actual military service in Syria.

In order to prove that these 48 people — Iranian spies who fought on the side of Syria Assad, "Al-Arabiya" leads … its transmission. Some anonymous "dressed as an officer of the Free Syrian Army," said in an interview that 48 fighters liberated militias "Shabiha" made in Damascus intelligence target. It also found and cardboard argument: "In the course of the investigation, we found that some of them were officers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps" — said the opposition leader, showing the front of the camera identification documents of the 1st of the guys. He was in the background, with the Syrian flag in his hand. He was held by two armed men.

Follow horror story about Iran and Syria, which is more serious than the last "pugalki" already knows about uranium. Yes, from now on uranium has been not only a formidable fellow Ahmadinejad, he became interested and Bashar al-Assad.

Resource, referring to the source is fully democratic — «Financial Times», — writes that Israel is not enough, the United States and other Western countries of concern about the reliability of storing supplies of chemical weapons in Syria, so now there is a danger and a Transfer. Fear shows up betrothed source of hidden storage for the future of uranium near Damascus.

It turns out that Syria is stored up to 50 tons of uranium. Fortunately, unenriched. "Financial Times" published a satellite photo of a secret facility "Marj al-Sultan" near Damascus. Specifically, there

"Noted the unusual activity that may be associated with the transportation of supplies of uranium."

It also expresses a hypothesis: uranium, possibly intended for use as nuclear fuel for plutonium production reactor at Deir al-Zura, which was destroyed by the Israeli Air Force in September 2007.

Moreover, the amount of uranium that Syria now has quite for five nuclear bombs.

Some unnamed government bureaucrats have already expressed concern about Iran's actions. After all, this country supporting Syria, needs uranium for its nuclear programs from, and now is trying to take control of the uranium storage.

On the South American resource «The Trumpet» in an editorial of January 15, said bluntly: Syrian supplies of uranium will soon fall into the hands of the Iranians. At the same time to get those hands and chemical weapon.

Iran in this article referred to as state sponsors of terrorism. On «Trumpet» also refer to the «Financial Times». Specifically, in this way, when one refers to another source, but first, if it exists at all, refers readers to the anonymous and is a modern political propaganda.

In 2008, the IAEA suspected that Syria after a strike by Israel in 2007, the uranium could not hide. This question until now worries Israel and the West. Now Syria can continue to hide uranium: in fact it has no reactor. For what it uranium? And can it be exercised. Country shrouded in political and social turmoil, and a variant of the supplies of uranium looks increasingly attractive
to maintain the weakened economy.

In August 1990, the magazine writes, when there was a war in the Persian Gulf, many analysts have expressed concern over the fact that Saddam Hussein will do with your biological and chemical weapon. Supply guns eventually were found in Iraq, but not in the quantities which were waiting to find out there Western intelligence agencies. Analysts began to crush the head where the supplies are gone.

As it turned out, the journalists say, they headed to Syria!

And this country is now interested in selling them. But who needs such large stores?

How — to whom? Iran, meet the South American journalists. He tries to find uranium, required for its Tipo peaceful purposes, the magazine writes.

In addition, Iran — Near the Syrian ally of the current government. How to buy uranium to Iran? Yes painfully simple: transport by air. In principle, as a conduit for Iranian weapons deliveries to Syria is involved in Iraq, which means that uranium can be transported by land route through the country.

And the amount of which will be made of a deadly weapon is a huge cause for concern, said the South American observers.

«Trumpet» and previously wrote about the nuclear threat posed by Iran. Brad MacDonald wrote in December 2004, in a cardboard room of this magazine, that

"Iran is seeking nuclear weapons … to establish itself as a well-known people in the Islamic world … nuclear weapon reflects his eagerness to become the dominant Islamic nation …"

And if Iran gets their hands on uranium from Syria, it would mean a step forward in the Islamic Republic of Iran to implement their own ambitions, enclosed in «Trumpet». And hope that Mr. Obama will not allow Iran to fulfill its nuclear program from. As for the outlook for the programs from this, the editors of the publication does not hesitate: Iran will continue its struggle for a nuclear weapon, despite international pressure.

In the end of the article back to the economy.

In "Financial Times" January 16 posted an article by Michael Peel and Nazhimi Bozorgmehr — on credit band to one billion dollars, which provides Iran Syria.

1 billion. $ In the form of a credit band set up to pay for imports from Iran, Syria has received from Iran as monetary support for Tehran. Iran, the newspaper said, afraid of the uprising spread, the negative impact of international sanctions and economic decline of its own ally.

The deal between the Iranian bank «Export Development» and the Commercial Bank of Syria — only part of a broader package of assistance, agreed after a visit Wael al-Khaliq in Tehran.

Although a similar agreement is not a direct transfer of funds, established to strengthen Syria's cash reserves, but it will allow the Syrian importers get a loan products from Iran — in view of the fact that other states such deliveries at the moment difficult.

David Butter, money expert on the Middle East of «Chatham House» in London, says that such a deal could ensure the supply to Syria staples — those that Damascus can not buy elsewhere. According to the views of a professional credit transaction between Syria and Iran was "pretty desperate step." It is not clear whether the Iranian manufacturers will be able to offer what is really needed in Syria. The Syrians, according to British financier, not take things earlier from Iran, but at this point they do not have a huge selection.

In the United States rushed to accuse Iranian bank to "provide or attempt to provide cash services' military organization, although the loan agreement aimed at expanding between Syria and Iran trade relations, leaves open the question of how the Assad government can continue to fund its war machine through credit strip.

So Makar, the last days of the general public have been formed new anti-Iranian and anti-Syrian horror stories. Their main difference from the previous specifically in the fact that it is a descent of 2-countries. If the former "high-ranking sources in the Pentagon, who wished to remain anonymous," frighten readers of "free" press box stuffing on the use of chemical weapons Bashar al-Assad and Israeli Prime Minister read about Tehran's nuclear weapons program there, but now, after negotiations between Iran and Syria, advanced media started talking of nuclear catastrophe that comrades Assad and Ahmadinejad is preparing the ground in co-authorship.
