Under the above heading, Igor Sobotin wrote in “Nezavisimaya Gazeta” about the feasibility of the draft Security and Defense Treaty resolution that is being prepared by the Iranian Parliament.
The article states: They are preparing a defense and security treaty in Iran, which is expected to be signed by Tehran’s Shiite allies in the Middle East. The new agreement is intended to enshrine, similar to NATO, the principle of collective response to any attack from Israel or the United States. The Iranian Parliament (Majlis) is working on preparing the relevant draft resolution.
The regional shifts are a response to the Donald Trump administration’s “request”. It is no coincidence that the Iranian leadership linked the last day of his rule to the change of an entire era.
Rather, according to the expert of the Russian International Affairs Council residing in Iran, Nikita Smagin, the council’s initiative aims to formalize all informal relations that Tehran currently maintains in the region.
Smagin told Nezavisimaya Gazeta: “At the same time, it should be understood that this law cannot lead to any serious change. First of all, because there is a need for bilateral or tripartite agreements: When you enter into an alliance, it is necessary that A decision is not taken only by one side. This is likely to be a problem. “
According to Smaghin, the Iranian influence today in the Middle East causes anxiety and misunderstanding of the vast majority of countries in the region. In this regard, there is reason to believe that the organizations known to have contacts with the Iranian side may not agree to officially declare their relations with the Islamic Republic.
The newspaper’s guest ruled out that this cooperation would turn into a counterpart to NATO. He said, “Certainly, Iran’s regional allies should not be called its followers. They are still cooperating with Iran because their interests converge with it at the present time. There are examples when interests have not coincided, and Iran’s partners have refused to comply with its demands.”
