    Iran to Purchase Russian Satellite Equipment, Superjet in $21Bln Deal

    Tehran signed contracts worth $21 billion with Moscow for the purchase of satellite-related equipment, as well as Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) aircraft, at the MAKS-2015 international air show, the managing director of Iran Aviation Industries Organization (IAIO) told Sputnik Saturday.

    TEHRAN (Sputnik) — The Iranian delegation visited the MAKS-2015 air show held in the Russian city of Zhukovsky in the Moscow Region between August 25 and August 30.

    "There is a large share of contracts for the purchase of this type of aircraft," Manouchehr Manteghi stated, not specifying, however, the exact number of jets.

    In late August, Iranian Vice President Sorena Sattari told the Russian Kommersant daily that the country was holding active talks with Russia on the purchase of at least two types of military aircraft. Tehran was also interested in using Russian rocket carriers to launch satellites into orbit, according to Sattari.

    The Superjet 100 is a twin-engine regional passenger jet, which became commercially available in 2011.

    Russia considering Iran’s application for $5 bln loan

    Such a credit is possible for Iran, though each project will be decided on separately, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak says

    TEHRAN, October 22. /TASS/. Russian Economic Development Ministry and Finance Ministry are already considering Iran’s application to receive a $5 bln loan from Russia, Energy Minister Alexander Novak told TASS on Thursday.

    "Iran’s application was just submitted to the Economic Development Ministry and Finance Ministry of the Russian Federation. They’re now considering the application," he said.

    The Minister added that "budget-funded intergovernmental credit is widely used as a financial instrument for triggering bilateral cooperation between countries." Novak added that "a similar tool was used when cooperating with Cuba." "Such a credit is possible for Iran, though each project will be decided on separately," he added.

    As TASS reported earlier with reference to Deputy Energy Minister Anatoly Yanovsky, Russian banks, including development bank VEB and the country’s second-biggest lender VTB, may be organizers of a loan for Iran worth $5 bln.

    The Russian, Iranian, Hezbollah military triangle


    Lebanon's Hezbollah members stand at attention in front of a picture of Hassan al-Haj, one of Hezbollah's top commanders who was killed fighting alongside Syrian army forces in Idlib province, during his funeral in his hometown of al-Luwaizeh, southern Lebanon, Oct. 12, 2015. (photo by REUTERS/Ali Hashisho)

    Since Hezbollah’s intervention in Syria became apparent in the summer of 2012, it has been a subject of hot debate both within Lebanon and beyond. Many questioned the wisdom of this step, saying that by engaging in the Syrian conflict, Hezbollah had tarnished its image after gaining high popularity in the Arab world as an anti-Israeli resistance force.

    But with the latest twist of events sparked by the Russian intervention in Syria, which started Sept. 30, the Lebanese movement may very well be in the driver's seat to assume a major regional role. This could mean the birth of a “new Middle East,” albeit in stark contrast to the one then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke of shortly after Israel began its war on Lebanon in July 2006 with the aim of “crushing Hezbollah.”

    A major indicator supporting the above notion is that Russia does not seem to be replacing the “Iranian-Hezbollah axis” in Syria, but rather complementing and strengthening this axis. According to political commentator with Russia’s Kommersant publishing house Sergei Strokan, there now exists a “Russia, Iran, Hezbollah military triangle” in Syria.

    In a telephone interview with Al-Monitor, Strokan said, “Hezbollah can do some things that Russia can’t afford to do itself,” as putting “Russian boots on the ground [in Syria] is a subject of heated debate [within Russia].”

    He added, “The Russian public is worried that something similar to Afghanistan might take place.”

    Hezbollah for its part appeared jubilant, from day one of the Russian airstrikes. Just hours after the first airstrikes were launched on Sept. 30, a Hezbollah official emphasized during a private discussion with Al-Monitor that Moscow "has its partners on the ground in the Syrian army and its allies, like us."

    A second Hezbollah official recently told Al-Monitor about reports of the establishment of a joint operations room in Damascus for the coordination of efforts between Russia, the Syrian army, Iran and Hezbollah. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, underscored that the Lebanese movement — and its allies in Syria — were now receiving “support from a superpower, and Hezbollah [along with the Syrian army] was providing intelligence to Moscow in the air raids being conducted.”

    An Iranian source, who maintains close contact with both the Russian and Chinese sides, went even further, saying that Hezbollah’s regional patron, Iran, had “brought the Russians [into Syria].” This scenario is further supported by reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military intervention was planned out during a visit by the commander of the Iranian Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani, to Moscow in late July.

    Within this same framework, the chief international correspondent of the Al Rai Kuwaiti newspaper, Elijah Magnier, has also reported about a division of labor agreement, whereby Russian warplanes provide air support for the Iranian and Hezbollah fighters on the ground (in addition to Iraqi and Afghan fighters), as they attempt to retake lost Syrian territories.

    Meanwhile, director of the military and security studies program at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Michael Eisenstadt, as well as former head of Israeli military intelligence Amos Yadlin, have also shed light on the likelihood that the Russian intervention in Syria will only serve to strengthen the position of Hezbollah — and Iran — in that country.

    At the same time, Russian experts point out that Moscow’s intervention in Syria is part of a broader strategy in the Middle East, whereby success in Syria could spell success for Putin’s bid to assume a leadership role in the Middle East, a role Putin is widely believed to aspire to.

    Strokan said President Putin has placed high stakes on success in Syria and therefore “can’t afford to lose.”

    If such a scenario is indeed playing out and the “Russian, Iranian, Hezbollah military triangle” is victorious in Syria, Hezbollah will not only go down as one of the major players that changed the geopolitics of the Middle East, but will also have established itself as a strategic partner in this “new Middle East.”

    Ironically, the movement could go from being an organization that was internationally recognized as a terrorist group to an organization that is an “internationally recognized” anti-terrorist force — although such an outcome is far from guaranteed.

    The establishment of the joint operations headquarters between Russia and Iran in Iraq to share intelligence in the fight against terror only serves to reinforce the notion that Moscow will seek to expand its regional role through coordination with Iran and Hezbollah.

    According to the well-informed Iranian source who asked not to be named, Russia and China "have come to view Iran and Hezbollah [along with the Yemeni Ansar Allah group, which is viewed as the Yemeni version of Hezbollah] as the most effective fighting force against terror.”

    Strokan expressed a similar view, underscoring that for Russia, “Hezbollah is getting much more important.” Expanding Russia’s leadership “obviously would require it to maintain close contact and cooperation with influential players in the region,” Strokan said, adding that “Hezbollah’s role is not restricted to Syria.”

    Indeed, Hezbollah stands ready to enter into a similar arrangement with Moscow in Iraq. When asked whether the movement was ready to replicate the coordination with Russia on the Iraqi battlefield, the Hezbollah official nodded in approval.

    Tehran, Moscow Proceed With Iran's Fordo Nuclear Facility Reconstruction

    Russia and Iran have made progress in rebuilding Iran's Fordo fuel enrichment plant to produce stable isotopes, Russia's atomic energy corporation Rosatom announced on Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the press release, Rosatom's international relations officer Nikolay Spasskiy and deputy head of Russia's environmental, technological, and nuclear oversight service Aleksey Ferapontov met with the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO) Ali Akbar Salehi on November 11-12, Rosatom said. They also met Iran's head of nuclear regulation Naser Rastkhah.

    "Questions of implementing a joint comprehensive plan of action was discussed in detail, as provided for by the UN Security Council Resolution 2231. We looked into approaches to restructuring the Fordo site for stable isotope production. Signs of real progress were evident," Rosatom's statement read.

    Iran is currently expecting an inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency over its adherence to the P5+1 deal on its nuclear program. Iran's relief from multinational sanctions by the United Nations, the Untied States and the European Union is subject to the inspection's results. Rebuilding the Fordo enrichment facility is stipulated in the agreement with P5+1 group of international mediators on Iran's peaceful use of nuclear energy.

    Russia may produce Sukhoi Superjets in Iran




    Russia says it is negotiating with Iran over the local production of its Sukhoi Superjets.
    Russian officials say the country is negotiating with Iran over the local production of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) airliner to replace the ageing Iranian fleet on regional routes.

    Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin says Moscow may deliver a large batch of SSJ 100 planes – described as the country’s most modern commercial jets – to Iran before 2020.

    Rogozin told the Russian media that the batch could comprise about 100 planes.

    The planes can be in part be localized by Iranian producers if Tehran makes the political decision to purchase ready-made aircraft, he told Rossiya 24 TV during a two-day trip to Iran.

    "Last night, one of the largest Iranian airlines held negotiations with UAC on the possible delivery of ready planes within five years. Different digits have been mentioned and I can mention them too - approximately 100 planes," Rogozin added.

    Iran has a shortage of modern aircraft due to the long running sanctions imposed by the West. Local airlines are looking for reliable regional jets to fly domestic routes. The SSJ 100 might be a match for Iran’s needs, with additional options to come along with the prospective deal, RT reported on its website.

    "If Tehran agrees to purchase the Superjet, we will discuss partial localization of production in Iran," RT has quoted Rogozin as telling Russia’s TASS news agency.

    Sukhoi Superjet 100 is Russia’s newest twin-engine regional passenger aircraft which began operating commercially in 2011. More than 60 aircraft are in service with airlines in Laos, Mexico, and Russia.

    Last month, France-KLM's CityJet signed a deal with Sukhoi to purchase 15 SSJ 100 planes worth over $1 billion. Sukhoi has also sold three SSJ 100s to Thailand and one to Kazakhstan.

    According to Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhundi, Iran will need to buy 400 long- and medium-haul jets and at least 100 planes for use in local airports at a cost of $50 billion.

    The meeting between Putin and khamenei was very warm and friendly , and the main subject was also Syrian civil war...

    It seems that both of them were very happy
    russia




    Iran reliable ally for Russia




    TEHRAN, Nov. 23 (MNA) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has told Leader of the Islamic Republic no power would impose its will on Syrian people and decide on their behalf on Syrian future political structure.
    Leader’s official website report quoted Mr. Putin’s remarks in his meeting with Ayatollah Khamenei earlier on Monday, where Mr. Putin expressed gratitude for meeting with the Leader; “bilateral relations between Iran and Russia in diverse fields as aerospace and technologies has taken a rapid turn, and we are happy that Russia along with Islamic Republic of Iran, has played an active role in resolving regional and international crises,” he told the Leader.

    Putin also praised the Islamic Republic as an independent and strong country with bright futures on the horizons; “Russia considers Iran as a reliable ally in the region and the world at large; we are committed to a general avoidance of betraying our partners and stabbing our friends coming out of the dark, and are committed to negotiation and diplomacy in solving any differences,” Mr. Putin said figuratively.

    Putin described Iranian and Russian positions on Syria very close; “we both emphasize that crisis in Syria will be solved only if all Syrian groups of all ethnicities participate in elections and that world powers recognize this political means to bring stability to the country; we strongly believe that no country is in a positon to decide on behalf of Syrians on their future government,” he emphasized.

    Putin emphasized upon the continuing nature of air strikes against terrorist strongholds in Syria and believed Tehran-Moscow sharing beliefs was necessary for a diplomatic solution; “countries with a claim to democracy could not oppose to elections in Syria,” he concluded.

    Leader urges vigilance to thwart US plot for West Asia

    Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the long-term US plot for Western Asia is against the interests of all countries, particularly Iran and Russia, urging vigilance and close interaction to thwart the scheme.

    In a meeting with visiting Russian President Vladimir Putin in Tehran on Monday, Ayatollah Khamenei said the US has a long-term plot to take control of the whole of West Asia by dominating Syria and then expanding its dominion over the entire region, saying, “This plot is a threat to all nations and countries, particularly Russia and Iran.”

    The Leader hailed Russia’s influential role in regional issues, particularly in the Syrian conflict, and said Moscow’s decisions and measures in dealing with developments in Damascus enhanced the regional and international standing of Russia and President Putin in particular.

    “The Americans have always been trying to place their rivals in a position of passivity but you have foiled such a policy,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

    The US and its followers are seeking to achieve through political means and negotiations the objectives that they have failed to obtain via military approaches, the Leader said, adding vigilance and a proactive stance are necessary to prevent this goal from being realized.

    Ayatollah Khamenei said Washington’s insistence on the ouster of Syria’s legitimate and democratically-elected President Bashar al-Assad is among the weaknesses of the US policies.

    He said the Syrian president, in a national election, succeeded in winning the majority of votes of the Syrian people with “different political, religious and ethnic” viewpoints and emphasized that the US has no right to ignore the Syrians’ choice.

    The Leader said every solution on the Syrian crisis should be endorsed by the country’s nation and officials.

    Russia’s Putin donates a special gift to Ayatollah Khamenei




    Visiting Russian president Vladimir Putin donated a special gift to Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during a meeting held in Tehran on Monday, Iranian local media reported.

    Putin, who is in Tehran to attend the summit meeting of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), gave one of the world’s oldest Quran manuscripts to Ayatollah Khamenei, another sign showing the strengthening relations between the two countries.

    Russian President met with Iran’s Supreme Leader as part of his visit to Tehran to attend the third meeting of fuel-exporting countries.



    He is also set to meet Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.

    Vladimir Putin became the first Russian leader to visit Iran since World War II when he held talks with Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in 2007.

    The third meeting of fuel-exporting countries was opened in Tehran on November 23 by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and prior to the meeting of the heads of the member countries, their ministers of oil and energy will meet beginning November 20.

    I've got some questions for our valuable Iranian forum member.

    What are opinion of average Iranians about Russia now, especially concerning war in Syria and closing relationship with Russia ? Is it positive or only neutral and want closer relationship with US ?

    Also i'd like to know if it is possible to establish Russian airbase there to protect Iran from not so friendly turko-shemite neighbours and YKW from bombing  nucl. power installations  and also to aid operation of eliminating rats from Syria.

    ‌it's mostly positive and they certainly want a closer "strategic" relation between two countries  . that's for sure

    A few hours ago I was searching the iranian news sites and I was shocked to see the level of anger against turkey and also the  huge number of condulenses by Iranians  to russian people  

    After the Putin's visit to Iran , and specialy after the Russia's massive military campaign against the western backed gangs , the iranian are looking to  Russia as a powerful ally , The rising Bear



    And this positive thinking is  going to grow more and more , just wait and see what will happen after Russia sell one of those lovley s_300 and su_35 to iran

    Also there are some aristocrat liberal rich Iranians who wants to make Iran a US pupet . much like it was before revolution....

    About the military base , I don't thing so .

    I think Russian bet on Iran was long overdue. I saw that too, Iranians sites even "liberal" completely shocked and appalled.
    I totally understand Iran's logic behind the foreign base, but I also know that Iran has no issue having Russians operating with Iranian permission from Iran.

    Many thanks for your answer ,and you know what they say the more rich you are the less spine you have Wink

    Concerning military base i think it's pretty urgent, but i never thought that IR constitution actually forbade it.
    It's understandable when we think about not so recent history.

    But maybe the solution would be temporary stationing of russian manned aircrafts mixed with iranian ones under joint command in existing airbase on the west like Hamadan or Tebriz( really close to Russia so they could be restationed back to Russia quickly) or something so this would not violate IR law at all.

    I suspect what they will eventual have is joint-operational bases where the Russian military will be based, but will also acts as training camps for the Iranian military (and militias allied with Iran) to be trained in various forms of advanced warfare, such as military bases for advanced ground warfare tactics near the Iraqi border, all the way to a major multi-faceted military base that deals with SAM batteries and tactics, to AshM batteries and tactics which would be located near the straight of Hormuz.

    Guys, how do you predict the future of Russp-Iranian relations?

    In February Iranians will elect a new Assembly of Experts which is the body that elects the Supreme Leader... one man is currently a rising star on the Iranian political scene and that is Hassan Khomeini, grandson of Grand Ayatollah Khomeini. Unlike his grandfather who was staunchingly anti-American, Hassan has a rather US-friendly stance and has made several pro-American comments over the years. If his faction seizes power, warming of relations between US and Iran is to be expected, not excluding return to pre-1979 relations.

    hassan Khomeini is a top reformist cleric in Iran and he'll surely get many votes from young Iranians who want more lax social policy and loosening of clerical screw over the population.

    well none sxpect that whatever the leader Iran will become a close ally of USA. Remember Hatami in late 90s that was considered also a moderate and pro-western but nothing changed

    The US appears to be doing thew best it can to drive Iran firmly into the Russia / China side. It has just imposed sanctions on Iran for the ballistic missile program, within hours of the other sanctions being lifted. Now we know the purpose of the delayed hoo-hah over the missile launch away from all vessels that took place 26 Dec and was only reported 9 Janary or so.

    The US Department of the Treasury says it has imposed new sanctions on Iran for its ballistic missile program.

    The Treasury Department made the announcement in a statement issued on Sunday, only a day after sanctions targeting Iran’s nuclear energy program were lifted.

    The statement said five Iranian citizens and a network of companies based in the United Arab Emirates and China were added to a US blacklist.
