    This is very hard to do for Russia, if Russia does more military cooperation with Iran than more sanctions will come on Russia. I think the Iranians will turn to China for military cooperation, China is one country that the US cannot sanction without hurting itself. Iran needs about $15-$20 billion in arms and I think 90% of that money goes to China.

    Why are you still expecting US won't do any further sanctions and stuffs against Russia anymore? Even if Russia just sit idle and start growing up their own economy, society, industry and army US will invent something from other universe and blame it on Russia and put sanctions or something. Remember Skripal case??
    It's better Russia-Iran both take the chance they have now. It's not just about buying-selling arms, it's about developing a cooperation.

    PS: Tronald Dump will try to sanction China as well, if he feels like it! Do you really think he knows what he is doing? xD

    The attack on the pantsir reminds me the video where we see SAA soldiers in the middle of a battle on the front not covered doing nothing and being hit by an ATGM.

    The Europeans are formulating counter sanctions against US, i suspect that there might (or perhaps not) be some behind doors discussions with China (as a partner on the deal) on this too for co-ordination purposes; Russia will not be privvy to them however due lack of appetite of anything Russian in Europe presently.
    The sledge hammer approach might be all swell on Capitol Hill but it rarely works, diplomacy more often than not is the winner, Trump will eventually learn this.
    The deal will remain though, 1) EU dont want to lose the billions in trade deals beacuse of the mad hatter across the Atlantic, 2) because Iran is all but fully compliant and 3) the Europeans know this is israels bidding.
    Iran should full steam look to china for their needs asap including military assistance. It should offer China a presence by way of a naval port, I am sure Beijing would find that offer most agreeable.

    MOSCOW, October 24./TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that he did not know at the moment whether he would be able to take part in a conference on Libya, due in Italy’s Palermo on November 12-13, but pledged that Russia would be represented there at a very high level.

    Recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights doesn’t change Moscow’s stance

    Moscow earlier said that the Golan Heights were Syria’s territory and US' statement on recognizing it as part of Israel demonstrated the disregard for int'l law and UNSC resolutions

    MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. The signing of a proclamation recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights by US President Donald Trump does not change Russia’s official stance on the issue, Russian Presidential Envoy for the Middle East and Africa and Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told TASS on Monday.

    "Nothing has changed, either before or after. Our principled stance and assessments have been provided on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website," he stressed.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry earlier said that the Golan Heights were Syria’s territory, and Washington’s statement on recognizing the Golan Heights as part of Israel showed the United States’ disregard for international law and UN Security Council resolutions.

    Trump signed the proclamation earlier on Monday during talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Along with Syria and other countries of the Arab and Muslim world, Russia and some key European countries, including Germany and France, spoke out against such unilateral steps.

    The Golan Heights, which had belonged to Syria since 1944, were seized by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War. In 1981, the Israeli parliament passed a law unilaterally declaring sovereignty over the Golan Heights. The UN Security Council declared the annexation null and void in its Resolution 497 on December 17, 1981.

    With regard to Jerusalem, the Palestinians and Golan, Trump has tilted toward Israel like no other president. It's an awful testament to the power of the zionist lobby here. But the US is so isolated on this issue, in the Mideast and internationally. The zionist lobby is paving the way for a future disaster--for the region, the US and ultimately itself.
