Ahmad Majidyar, a fellow and the director of IranObserved Project at the Middle East Institute based in Washington, on August 30, 2017, in his article on the US-Iran relationship on fighting terrorism in Syria expressed an opinion, that Tehran allegedly was afraid of having ” secret deal “between Moscow and Washington, which could undermine Iranian interests in Syria and the Middle East.
The reason for concern, according to the expert, is the cooperation of the United States and Russia in the settlement of the conflict in Syria, namely singing of the Russian-American ceasefire agreement in the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.
Russia, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, has the main priorities: international law, participation in the maintenance of peace throughout the world and the observance of treaties and agreements.
President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on March 27 after talks with the head of Iran, said that the joint actions of Russia and Iran allowed establishing a ceasefire in the territory of the SAR.
In addition, the participation of the two states as guarantor countries in the negotiations in Astana is a contribution to the further advancement of the peace settlement in Syria and promotes the inter-Syrian negotiations and the corresponding process under the aegis of the United Nations.
Also during the conversation with Rouhani on August 14, Putin confirmed the continuation of the two countries joint actions on the settlement of the military-political conflict in Syria.
For a long time, an international coalition led by the United States has unsuccessfully tried to defeat terrorism and bring peace to the Syrian Arab Republic, while acting contrary to the international law and substantial results on the way to the liberation of the Syrian people were achieved only with the direct participation of Russia, which in turn operates with the official permission of the Syrian government.
The US leadership recognizes a positive role of Russia in settlement of Syrian conflict, despite an anti-Russian policy, and they are forced to cooperate with Russia in resolving the Syrian issue, but continues to use all opportunities to realize its ambitions of global domination.
The studies of the experts of the NGO “The Middle East Institute” obviously support the geopolitical interests of the United States. It is not a secret that the agreement between Russia and Iran “oil in exchange for goods” raises concerns of the American leadership, and more over the United States plans to withdraw from the comprehensive plan of action (agreement on Iran’s nuclear program), which points to the American leadership’s desire to divide The Russian Federation and Iran.
