    News worth mentioning – May 2, 2016
    Key point is second post:
    Contract signed with Tekhnopromexport (Russia) to build an energy plant in Iran

       Tekhnopromexport and holding company for electricity generation in the steam thermal power plants of Iran signed a contract to build a thermal power plant “Hormozgan”.

       The project will be implemented on a “turnkey”, consisting of four steam-powered generating units of 350 MW each, with desulfurization and desalination plant in the vicinity of the administrative center of Hormozgan province – Bandar Abbas.

       Preparation and design work under this contract will be launched this year. One of the most important conditions for realization of the project is to use mostly Russian equipment.

    POOR RUSSIA...

    Россия не планирует поставлять Ирану танки или истребители, боевые платформы попадают под ограничение, заявил глава ФСВТС Андрей Фомин.

    «Нет, не планируем», — сказал Фомин, отвечая на соответствующий вопрос журналистов.

    Боевые платформы — универсальная базовая ходовая часть, используемая для производства различных видов военной техники сухопутных войск — танки, бронетранспортеры, боевые машины пехоты.

    «Боевые платформы все попадают под ограничение. Когда будут раскрепощены соответствующие ограничения, тогда, возможно, и поговорим. На сегодняшний день разрешено только стрелковое вооружение и прочие нелетальные средства, средства ПВО, локация. Танки, самолеты, корабли, ракеты, которые предназначены для нападения, скажем так, то это все попадает под санкции ООН», — добавил Фомин.

    'A Partner We Can Trust': Iran Chooses Russia to Build Bushehr Nuke Plant

    Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation, Rosatom, will start work on Iran’s Bushehr-2 nuclear power plant by the end of this year after the construction site preparations are completed.

    “We hope that the Iranian side will identify seismic parameters at the site so we could start work on several new blocks already before this year is out,” a source at Rosatom said on Thursday.

    Russia has already built a power plant in Bushehr. The agreement for the construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant was finalized in 1995, but the project was delayed several times due to a number of technical and financial issues.

    “Even with the international sanctions now lifted and foreign investors coming in, Iran still prefers to deal with its trusted partner, Russia,” Mahmoud Shoori, head of the Eurasia Program at the Center for Strategic Research in Tehran, told Radio Sputnik.

    Mahmoud Shoori said that after the construction and launch of the first stage of the Bushehr plant, Iran realized that it needed at least two more units and decided to give the job to Russia’s Rosatom.

    “Our longtime experience of productive cooperation with Russia and the technological potential Russia demonstrated during the construction of Bushehr-1 convinced us that we had made the right choice.” Mahmoud Shoori said.

    “Russia has a clear edge over all other potential contractors and we are certain that Russia is taking this job very seriously and is a partner we can trust,” Mahmoud Shoori emphasized.

    Bushehr-1 was launched in September 2011 and reached its maximum power generation capacity in August 2012.

    In September 2013, Iran officially took over from Russia the first unit of its first 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plants for two years and in November 2014 the two countries signed an agreement whereby Russia was commissioned to build another four units total.

    Forget about these two aircraft, both have been abandoned by OAK and are produced a few units a year for government and air force. Russia must make all efforts possible to sell at least some dozens SSJ and MS-21 aircraft to Iran.

    They don't seem the least interested in Russian airliners so far, even though MS-21 or SSJ would make a lot of sense for their fleets. It's quite bad for Russia really. Lets hope after EU, US orders a Russian one will follow. Suspect

    Boeing deal will send 100 new jetliners to Iran

    Boeing says it has signed a historic agreement to sell jetliners to Iran Air, the first major deal between a U.S. company and Iran since nuclear-related sanctions were lifted earlier this year. Boeing (BA) declined to say how many aircraft are part of the deal, but Iran's state media has said the country's flag carrier will receive 100 new jetliners. The new aircraft should help modernize a fleet that is among the oldest and most dangerous in the world.

    Boeing said Tuesday that the U.S. government had authorized its negotiations with Iran, and that it would continue to follow the government's lead. "Any and all contracts with Iran's airlines will be contingent upon U.S. government approval," it said. Boeing isn't the only manufacturer to capitalize on the bonanza of new Iranian aircraft orders. Iran Air has already announced a huge deal for 118 aircraft from its rival Airbus (EADSF).

    If they were going for regional liner aircrafts, then SSJ-100 or MS-21 would be ideal. But since they need something to replace all their old international airliner aircraft, well, Boeing and Airbus has the monopoly on it. Even Russian carriers still use Boeing because of that. It won't be till the joint Chinese/Russian aircraft that they will have something in that category since due to heavy corruption in 90's, Il-96 died (don't even try to debate this, we gone over it to death in prior articles in the civil aircraft thread)

    Didn't mention Russian wide bodies, they have been dead since USSR collapsed.

    I mentioned the SSJ (regional) and MS-21 (narrow body) categories, with western engines which are exactly what Iran will be after.  Gulf, Pakistan and Turkey (even India) are markets where these planes can thrive in/out of Iran and of course domestic, Iran itself.

    Those 100 Boeings and another 100+ Airbus planes will not be wide bodies only. Quite the opposite.

    edit: and it's confirmed:

    Iran's national carrier, Iran Air, said on Monday that it wants to buy new generations of the Boeing 737, as well as the 300ER and 900 version of Boeing 777.

    Iran is Iraq's boss and Iraq is the center of civilization. Sumer. Iran is absolutely crucial to Russia. Even if Russia breaks ties with Israel, Russia cannot afford to lose influence on Iran.

    @Garry

    building NPP is not only about money. No one wanted to build NPP in Iran and Iran would be left without one if not for Russia to press on against the West.

    Iran would be most likely bombed if not for Russia to press on with nuke deal. Russia in that regard shielded Iran from being destroyed.

    Iran because of it gained acces to 100 bin$ of its frozen assets. Iran because of it gained momentum in foreign investment. Iran because of it can make free trade agreement with EEAU

    and SCO, Iran because regained its oil production back and access to hi-technologies and S-300 and all the other big defense deals that are being negotiated with Russia that will make

    Iran security that much more. Iran because of it gained GDP growth. That makes this video/stories a spam of epic proportions.

    Iran is a totally secterian country,and has to continue to be so.

    Secterian politics of Iran will yield huge destability across MidEast,and at the end,loser will be Iran I guess.

    Iran has to rely Shia secterianism because ethnic figure of Iran is very complex, at least 40% of the population being not Farsi, but Shia.This clearly shows why Iran pursues such a policy.

    However,fighting against huge Sunni population in MidEast is not a clever option. 90% of todays Muslims are estimated to be Sunni,at least not Shia.And if one looks at MidEast,except Iran and partly Iraq, there is no Shia majority countries mentionable.

    Today,Iran is the first reason of destabilized Yemen,Iraq,partly Syria and in the future Bahrain,Quwait,Lebanon etc.

    As for Turkey, it is not desired to have a third disastrous neighbor country after Syria and Iraq, yielding huge losses in economy.

    But, Iran keeps being away to have any consensus to put an end to this MidEast wars.

    Maybe Astana talks can be an initial initiative,why not....

    Putin-Rouhani meeting round-up

    Vladimir Putin has hailed Iran as Russia’s most reliable and stable partner

    MOSCOW, March 28. /TASS/. Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made a joint statement after their meeting in the Kremlin on March 28.

    Iran nuclear deal

    Putin and Rouhani have underscored the importance of all parties’ compliance with their obligations under the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.

    "While stating the importance of this Joint Plan as a multilateral international document, approved by the UN Security Council, Russia and Iran emphasized the need for full compliance by all parties with obligations under this document. At the same time they stressed the fact that the Islamic republic of Iran has full legitimate rights to the peaceful uses of nuclear energy in accordance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty," Putin and Rouhani said in the statement.

    Russia welcomed "Iran’s strict compliance with its obligations under the Joint Plan, confirmed by the IAEA, as well as its firm intention to strictly observe the agreements within the established deadlines."

    Putin and Rouhani described in positive terms cooperation within the framework of the Joint Plan, "in particular, the signing of the contract for pre-project works to alter the two cascades of gas centrifuges in Fordow for the production of stable isotopes and stressed the need for its prompt implementation."

    Iran plans to continue cooperation with Russia on issues of the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action of 2015, Rouhani said.

    "As for the JCPOA, cooperation between our countries will be continued. Both sides reiterated their course towards the strengthening and implementation of the JCPOA and towards coordination of our cooperation on issues of peaceful use of nuclear energy," he said.

    The Iranian president hailed Russia’s assistance in reaching the agreements on the Iranian nuclear program and its role in helping Iranian industry switch to peaceful use of nuclear energy.

    The joint statement says Russia and Iran are unanimous that the NPT treaty is a corner stone of non-proliferation, of building up nuclear disarmament efforts and of using nuclear power for peaceful purposes."

    "Russia and Iran, supportive of the idea of converting the Middle East into a nuclear-free region, confirmed that the resolution on the Middle East, adopted at the 1995 NPT Review and Extension Conference, will stay in effect until its aims have been achieved," the resolution runs.

    Unilateral sanctions

    Moscow and Tehran believe unilateral sanctions against countries to be illegitimate. "Imposing unilateral sanctions against countries is illegitimate," the statement reads.

    The two presidents emphasized the need to continue joint efforts aimed at building a just world order based on international law, namely the United Nations Charter, as well as at solving global issues. "By boosting bilateral cooperation, Russia and Iran seek to enhance the central coordinating role of the United Nations in ensuring peace, security and sustainable development, and to further improve its effectiveness," the statement adds.

    Cyberattacks

    Russia and Iran stand for elaborating rules under the UN aegis for states’ conduct in the information space and have denounced the use of the IT-sphere for harmful purposes.

    "Russia and Iran expressed their concern over the steadily rising number of the instances of using information and communication technologies for criminal, terrorist, military and political goals," the statement reads.

    "The sides have denounced the attempts of using force or the threat of force in the information space, such as an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities with the help of the Stuxnet malware, and also any attempts to involve information and communication techniques for harmful purposes," according to the statement.

    Putin and Rouhani also "pointed to the need to elaborate under the UN aegis the rules of the states’ responsible behavior in the information space and noted the readiness of Russia and Iran to develop cooperation in this direction," the document reads.

    Situation in Afghanistan

    Russia and Iran will continue efforts to help Afghanistan strengthen its statehood and call for the implementation of measures to uproot drug production in that and other countries.

    "Putin and Rouhani expressed concern over the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, over the growth of terrorist threats from extremist forces in that country," the document says. "Russian and Iran reiterate their commitment to continue assistance to Afghanistan’s efforts to strengthen its state system as a peaceful, democratic, independent and prosperous sate."

    The two presidents hailed the launch of the Moscow dialogue aiming to find the ways to promote peace settlement in Afghanistan and to give an impetus to the process of national reconciliation in that country.

    Apart from that, the Russian and Iranian presidents "expressed mutual concern over the growth of drug production in Afghanistan which poses a threat to peace and stability, socio-economic development and security of Afghanistan and other states," the statement stresses. "The sides pointed to the necessity of the implementation of concrete measures to eliminate global production of drugs, including to uproot illegally sowed narcotic-containing crops and to do away with their processing."

    Iraq’s territorial integrity

    Russia and Iran support preserving Iraq’s territorial integrity, stand for lifting the blockade on Yemen, positively assess the Lebanon political process and express the hope for the fair settlement of the Palestinian problem.

    "Russia and Iran state their support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Iraq, the efforts taken by the Iraqi authorities aimed at fighting terrorism represented by the Islamic State [a terrorist organization outlawed in Russia] and other extremist groupings, and also at restoring control of the country’s territories seized by such groupings," the joint statement reads.

    "The sides resolutely denounce the terrorists’ crimes against the Iraqi people, including the crimes aimed against the national and religious minorities and the cultural heritage of Iraq," according to the statement.

    In their joint statement, Putin and Rouhani also voiced concern "over the continued destructive war in Yemen" and spoke "for the quickest termination of clashes and the bloodshed," and also stressed "the need to settle this crisis politically as part of a nation-wide dialog."

    "Warning about the grave humanitarian and economic consequences of the crisis for the Yemeni people, Russia and Iran stated the need to step up efforts in this direction and, in particular, noted the importance of lifting the economic and humanitarian blockade of Yemen and sending humanitarian aid to that country," the statement reads.

    As for the situation in Lebanon, Putin and Rouhani positively assessed and welcomed cooperation of the country’s political groups in solving the issue of electing the president and forming the government.

    "The sides consider the accords reached by them as a good example for solving the remaining Lebanese problems and also for settling internal disagreements in other states of the region," the joint statement says.

    "The presidents who expressed the hope for the fair and sustainable settlement of the Palestinian problem stressed the need for the exercise of the national rights of the Palestinian people," the document says.

    Global energy balance

    Russia and Iran will cooperate in oil export limiting for stabilization of the global energy market.

    "Putin and Rouhani hailed agreements of OPEC and non-OPEC countries contributing to demand and offer balancing on the oil market in an acceptable price range and supporting investment attractiveness of the oil sector." the statement says.

    "Russia and Iran will continue cooperating in this sphere for purposes of global energy market stabilization and provision of sustainable economic growth," the statement says. "The parties agree to continue meaningful interaction within the framework of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum aimed at forming a fair balance of interests of gas producers and consumers and at wider application of this efficient and ecofriendly kind of fossil fuel in the global energy balance, particularly for purposes of reducing greenhouse gas emissions."

    Development of large hydrocarbon fields

    Russian companies have reached agreements on development of major hydrocarbon fields in Iran.

    "We see good potential to broaden interaction in the oil and gas sector. Leading Russian companies reached a series of important agreements on development of large hydrocarbon fields in Iran," the Russian leader said.

    Russia and Iran discussed extension of cooperation in supplies of hydrocarbons, including to third countries.

    "Particular attention was paid to expansion of cooperation in the oil and gas sphere, particularly to implementation of joint projects in the territory of Iran in the sphere of exploration, production and transportation of raw hydrocarbons, including to third countries, technology transfers, swaps and construction of related infrastructure," the document says.

    The parties also agree to continue interaction within the framework of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum, "aimed at forming a fair balance of interests of gas producers and consumers and at wider application of this efficient and ecofriendly kind of fossil fuel in the global energy balance, particularly for purposes of reducing greenhouse gas emissions."

    Russia and Iran support agreements of OPEC and non-OPEC countries contributing to demand and offer balancing on the oil market in an acceptable price range and supporting investment attractiveness of the oil sector in the joint statement:

    "Russia and Iran will continue cooperating in this sphere for purposes of global energy market stabilization and provision of sustainable economic growth."

    Export credits extension

    Russia informed Iran about completion of internal procedures for extension of two export credits to Iran.

    "The Russian party informed Iran about completion of domestic government procedures required for entry into force of the agreement between governments of two nations on extension of a state export credit for Iran to finance construction of a thermal power plant and the agreement on provision of a state export credit for Iran to finance electrification of Garmsar - Ince-Burun railway segment, signed in Tehran on December 13, 2016," the statement says.

    Implementation of projects stipulated by these agreements will promote investment and trade-economic cooperation between Russia and Iran, the parties said.

    Furthermore, Putin and Rouhani stressed "importance of more active interbank cooperation, including between central banks, and importance of using national currencies in mutual settlements."

    Iran’s Bushehr NPP

    The first block of Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant reached the design capacity and documents for construction of the second and the third blocks undergo coordination, Putin said.

    "The first block of Bushehr NPP built by Rosatom reached the design capacity, operates steadily and generates electric power for the Iranian economy. Documents for construction of the second and the third power blocks of the plant undergo coordination," Putin said.

    Russia is providing significant aid to Iran in the nuclear sphere, the president said. "Our interaction is implemented in strict compliance with international law, IAEA requirements and subject to all provisions of the comprehensive action plan in respect of the Iran’s nuclear program," Putin added.

    SSJ-100 aircraft and helicopters deliveries

    Moscow and Tehran discussed an opportunity of supplying SSJ-100 aircraft and helicopters to Iran.

    "Ways of expanding cooperation in machine-building and in the civil aviation sector were discussed during negotiations. Potential deliveries of modern medium-range Sukhoi SuperJet-100 aircraft to Iran and helicopters for national ambulance aviation are on the agenda," Putin said.

    Inter-regional cooperation

    Putin and Rouhani support the idea to hold a bilateral forum on inter-regional cooperation until the year ends.

    "The parties pointed to a high level of cooperation between the regions of Russia and Iran and stated their intention to fully support this field of interaction," the statement reads. "Putin and Rouhani upheld the idea to arrange a Russian-Iranian forum on inter-regional cooperation either in Astrakhan or Sari before the end of 2017. Regional heads and representatives of the two countries’ business circles could attend the forum," the statement adds.

    "We have agreed with our Iranian counterparts to fully support the development of direct ties between our countries’ regions and to arrange a Russian-Iranian inter-regional cooperation forum in Astrakhan until the end of the year," Putin said following his talks with Rouhani.

    Russia and Iran will create favorable conditions for counter-deliveries of foods and use of national currencies in mutual settlements.

    Turnover between Iran and Russia surged by more than 70% in 2016, Putin said. This is "a good result indeed," particularly in conditions of unstable global market situation and volatility remaining on commodity and forex markets, he added.

    "It was recognized important to proactively work on implementation of the coordination roadmap in trade and industry; importance of creating favorable conditions for counter-deliveries of agricultural products and foods, for development of interbank relations and use of domestic currencies in mutual settlements was noted," the Russian President said.
    Easing visa restrictions

    Moscow and Tehran will consider further joint steps aimed at easing visa restrictions for certain categories of Russian and Iranian citizens.

    "Putin and Rouhani welcome the signing of the Agreement on visa-free group tours that aims at boosting cultural and humanitarian cooperation between Russia and Iran as well as at creating conditions for boosting tourist exchange," the statement adds. According to the document, "the presidents handed down instructions to consider further joint steps to remove administrative barriers hampering trips of certain categories of citizens."

    SCO membership


    Russia supports Iran’s plans to join the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

    "The Russia side confirmed its support to Iran’s application for membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and spoke in favor of the swift consideration of this application," the statement says.

    According to the statement, the two presidents focused on the importance of strengthening Russian-Iranian cooperation not only within the SCO but also in other multilateral regional formats. Apart from that, with an aim of enhancing peace and stability in Central Asia and South Caucasus, Moscow and Teheran "confirmed their readiness to expand cooperation in these regions in the political, economic and other spheres and stressed their commitment to cooperation in multilateral formats involving other regional nations."

    The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is a permanent regional association founded in Shanghai, China, on June 15, 2001 by six nations, namely Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Its priority tasks include joint counteraction to terrorism and extremism; cooperation in education as well as in the energy, oil and gas, transport, communication and other spheres. In 2015, a decision was taken to grant full-fledged membership to India and Pakistan. Iran has been enjoying an observer nation status since 2005.

    Orion-20 Ekranoplans for Iran

    Post  lulldapull on Sun Apr 23, 2017 4:40 pm

    Well, sounds like there is interest from the Iranians in Ekranoplans. Except that these things are little babies compared to the Caspian Sea Monster or the Loon beast developed by the Alexiev bureau in the 70's:
