Iran is proving out to be a trustworthy ally and a rather sizable one too
and Russia is also making its own "coalition of the willing"
Rouhani: Iran will not replace Russian gas export to Europe
Iran will not export natural gas to Europe if Russia stops its exports, the country's President Hassan Rouhani said yesterday.
Uh... I easily found a story on Russia's RT itself which conveyed very different phrasing: (RT accurately sources the interview as coming from Rossiya 1, while this "MEMO" cites "a Russian magazine")
Iran 'not ready' to replace Russian gas supplies to EU – Rouhani
...Which is the blindingly obvious reality, so indeed an announcement of FUTURE solidarity w/ Russia re: exports would be rather premature at this stage.
Rouhani's interview is largely envisioning some level of cooperation between "producers" to avoid excessive price production, not dealing with political embargoes etc.
That whole site you posted from seems pretty prejudiced perspective, read the story on Yemen/Houthis/interviewing Tawakkol Karman,
full of trappings of "peaceful civil activism", yet de facto defending the Gulf regimes against some all powerful Iranian conspiracy,
lionizing the "Yemeni revolution" which resulted in Saleh's general running the country following a single candidate "election".
Fact is, as "Color Revolutions" show, civil activists can just as easily serve the purpose of imperial masters, as armed groups can.
Her evidence of Saleh and Yemeni military now working for/with Houthis is some army units surrendering to Houthi militia,
indeed the whole interview is filled with baseless claims, e.g. Saleh being flooded with Iranian money, ignoring US/Saudi cash...
(yet he was also backing al-Qaeda according to her, apparently also an Iranian stooge by her logic)
Fact is, Saleh was a self-interested thug who the West and Saudis were happy to work with for a long time,
when he wasn't able to keep the country together under his (and West/Saudi) thumb, they shifted to other means of control.
The interview is transparent in ascribing a benevolent role to "international community" and "the region's states, foremost amongst them the Gulf States",
while ascribing pure hostility to Iran, and holding similar reflexive hostility to Hezbollah, a perspective which pertains to Sunni sectarian Gulf Regimes.
The idea that Iran is pursuing regional sectarian war, when it is the minority sect, while Saudi official theology is inherently sectarian and hostile to non-Sunni, is absurd. Never mind Iranian backing for Hamas, a Sunni/Muslim Brotherhood group.
Far from a humble Yemeni civil activist, Karman's agenda transparently serves GCC:
"We shall not allow the implementation of a plot that will turn Sanaa into the gate through which Iran will bring down the entire Arab region."
