    سوریه تصمیم به اجاره بخشی از لاتکیا به ایران پرسنل ایرانی را نزدیک تاسیسات روسیه قرار می دهد

    یک هدف 10 ساله که به حقیقت می انجامد.

    from next October the Russians will no longer have the neighborhood to themselves – as Iran has leased parts of the port of Latakia.

    A ten year goal that comes true. the goal that connect Tehran to the Mediterranean and Lebanon is a highway that aims to bring economic and military prosperity to the Middle East and Europe. an highway that turns Iran into Middle East power.

    Railway project is being carried out along with the highway project that connect Iran to the Mediterranean.:-)


    Back on track: Railway linking Iran to Syria through Iraq

    https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20190416-back-on-track-railway-linking-iran-to-syria-through-iraq/

    The strategic project seeks to link Tehran and Baghdad to the ports in Syria’s north-western city of Latakia. Before the war, 97 per cent of construction of the project on the Syrian side was complete but, large tracts of the railways were bombed during the eight-year conflict.

    “The railway is to facilitate better trade links, making it easier to get across quite a large terrain,”
    said Simon Mabon, director of SEPAD, a collaborative project aimed at understanding proxy conflicts. “They’re able to save themselves logistical heartache with the Strait of Hormuz and the Indian Ocean which is a win for Tehran.”

    there are rumors that Qatar will also invested in the project.

    Smart moves by iran to economically integrate with Iraq and syria..integration of economies will eventually lead into formal military alliances...something I think Pakistan and possibly turkey are watching with interest.

    You're correct but having Qatar on our side is poison arrow in the heart of MBS. Also, if Turkey joins in we could have the M.E. NATO that S.A. and UAE failed at. I would love to see Iran pay UAE back one day for its role in all the nefarious activity surrounding JCPOA and warming ties with Israel.

    UAE is like Qatar. We need to work with both of them when is in our interest. Yes UAE now is main Iran enemy in financial issues but itself suffer more from leaving Iran economy. Also UAE helped both Iran and Russia during Aleppo battle. That was UAE who fund many battles in favor of Russia and Iran when all of the other Persian gulf monarch allies behind Saudis against Assad in Syria.

    I really don’t mind. However it is poetic justice that they are now paying to strengthen Iran’s position. Faith it seems, is not without a sense of irony.

    Iranian strategy is longterm. If they are lucky then they’ll share Qatars faith.

    This is new to me. Any officials on either side actually confirming this?

    That is not new from first day, every body in region knows UAE is not happy with Obama and Arab spring. And they spend huge money to support financially and militarily, anti revolutionary forces.

    About their cooperation with Russians during Aleppo battle, I am 100 sure.

    of course

    " it is now a major liability amid the 21st century game of empire. "

    that was Qatar dream before SA_Qatar relationship destroyed. and you can see Iran plan for building GAS line to supplie Europe and Turkey.

    but now Qatar may very well join Iran in its plan because Iran's project is almost over.

    Iran certainly is at work to become economic_military superpower of the Middle East.


    Iran, Oman to hold joint military drill, create new shipping route

    Iran and Oman will be holding joint military exercises within the coming days, in an effort to build relations.

    Speaking at a meeting in Muscat consisting of 120 representatives from Iran’s business and economic sectors, the Iranian Ambassador Mohammad Reza Nouri Shahroudi announced that “currently, our joint military committee is present in Oman, and we will hold a joint manoeuvre in the coming days.”


    Shahroudi stated that the expansion of maritime transportation between Iran and Oman would boost trade and mutual economic interactions, citing the recent increase of direct flights between the two countries from 20 to 48 per week. According to the ambassador, Iran’s trade with Oman also reached $700 million in an 11-month period during 2018-2019, of which around $250 million consisted of Iran’s imports from the Sultanate.

    Thanks my friend..you made my day....a big part of Syrian war was indeed due to that original pipeline..so glad iran came on top of this...one reason Europeans do not want to be in bad side of iran is because of the potential of using iranian gas so they can not be black mailed my russians...your Oman news is also great ..so good day for good news..thanks again.

    So does that mean Latakia is fair game for Israel's terror attacks on the port?
