Union of Russia, Turkey and Iran will take control of the most important trade routes


Relations in the Russia-Turkey-Iran triangle have almost always been difficult in the past. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the West managed to avoid close politicaleconomic ties between Moscow and Ankara, but now the situation has changed, and Turkey (as well as Iran) is much more profitable to seek points of contact with Russia, rather than trying to please the West to go to confrontation with it.


Turkey is no longer afraid of threats of rejection by the EU and does not show sensitivity to possible US sanctions for the purchase of Russian air defense systems. Erdogan has long been conducting an independent external policies both in the Mediterranean and in the Caucasus, without looking too closely at NATO partners. At the same time, Turkey is not afraid to escalate, ruining relations with France, Israel, Greece, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Thus, Turkey is surrounded by ill-wishers from all sides. With Moscow, Ankara also has a number of contradictions over Syria and the Transcaucasus, while with Tehran it is a traditional rival for influence in the region. However, on the whole, common interests amid the collapse of Pax Americana bring the positions of Russia, Turkey and Iran closer together, which are capable of taking control of the most important trade routes in the Middle East.

France, Greece and Italy are trying to push Turkey away from the riches of the Eastern Mediterranean, weakening it economically. And if the Turks show weakness, this will also affect Russian economic interests in this difficult but important region. In the alliance of Russia, Turkey and Iran and in their interaction with China, countries will be able to take control of sea and land routes from Asia to Europe, without looking back at the interests of the United States and individual European players. Thus, the union of these countries may have a market with 6-7 billion consumers.

Already, Moscow, Ankara and Tehran are more oriented toward the eastern vector, and their combined military forces and economic power are capable of protecting their interests in Central Asia and the Middle East. The last five years have shown a clear trend towards rapprochement between countries within this triangle, and within the framework of effective interaction, all interested countries and peoples can benefit.

        I would venture to suggest that I know Russian literature better than many Russians. As for our young country, it already has its own remarkable literary talents, including the Nobel Prize winner. By the way, there are quite high-quality translations of their books from Hebrew into Russian - you can read them.

                        You understand that you can discuss anything, even the flora and fauna of Jupiter, politics is the art of reality. And the reality is that Russia, Turkey and Iran have different goals, the religious enmity between the Orthodox, Sunnis and Shiites is millennial, and the economies of all three states are in a deplorable state. So in the future we will look at the complex ambiguous processes in the region and the rivalry of these states.

          It's embarrassing to interrupt your conversation, just to clarify. For Russians, the Nobel Prize in Literature is not at all synonymous with the talent of a writer. And in my opinion there are enough grounds for such an opinion. Or do you think differently and a volume of Aleksievich's works is always on the bedside table? What to do, the reputation of the Nobel committee is like a good girl, everyone tries, praises, but does not marry.

            Among the laureates of the Nobel Prize in Literature in different years there were many really great writers - I. Bunin, E. Hemingway, T. Mann, J. Golsworthy, etc. Shai Agnon is a representative of Israeli literature, he is also deservedly on this list.

              I have nothing against these respected gentlemen, although to be honest, not all of them are familiar with creativity. But Aleksievich is such a big fly in the ointment that the Nobel barrel makes him whine. I repeat, the reputation of the title of Nobel laureate in Russia has been badly undermined, and this is the great merit of the Nobel Committee, which distributes prizes to just about anyone.

      Well, yes, and when you remember the secret alliance of Israel and the Saudis, you immediately remember ... (indecent idiom) ... Such an alliance of the main states in the Middle East has been brewing for a long time, and it is beginning to be created ... The fact that I scold my enemies means actions are correct (From the classics).

        enemies scold, then the actions are correct (From the classics).

        Foes, like others, have long been familiar with the "contradictory" method and use it successfully.
        Iran represents its interests, and the Chinese "ears" look out there a little (and where they are not today).
        Turkey is strongly tied to England, Europe, the EU, NATO and will always look back at them in addition to its interests.
        Of course, Russia would have great preferences from such a union, but for this it is necessary to invest (feed) again and again in nearby foreign countries and those that are far away. It means that an ominous shadow appears on the horizon, all Russian liberals and democrats of the accursed USSR and conversations about how long to feed the "non-brothers"?
        Although the people's monetary and property wealth and resources are finally pocketed (privatized), the new property is more or less reliably protected and hidden. Now these are the "ideologically free" ambitions of the newest Russian capitalists who do not fit into their plate and are trying to appear to the whole world, but at the expense of the state and the people, of course.

    In 19 and 20th centuries To the West succeeded prevent close political and economic ties between Moscow and Ankara

    A new word in historiography - it turns out that the rivalry between the Ottoman Port and the Russian Empire in the Balkans, the Caucasus and the Black Sea was another intrigue of the vile and insidious West! If not for him, then RI and Turkey would have merged in the arms of eternal friendship!

      If you taught history at school, and did not smoke, you would not ridicule the obvious facts.
      Yes, the British, the French, even the Germans constantly set Turkey against Russia.
      But if Turkey had problems and it did not go into the sphere of interests of Russia, then it was the Russians who rescued it. And by the way, Recep Erdogan remembers this.
      Twice Russia simply saved Turkey from destruction.
      The first time was in 1832, during the uprising of the governor of Turkey in Egypt against Sultan Mahmud II.
      https://histrf.ru/biblioteka/b/kak-russkiie-spasli-turietskogho-sultana
      The second time already Soviet Russia saved Ataturk during the second Greco-Turkish war, when the Greeks had already reached Ankara. In memory of this, comrades Voroshilov and Aralov are depicted on the Ataturk monument on Taksim Square in Istanbul. Everyone can see.
      And in general, until the beginning of the 17th century, there were no wars between Russia and Turkey. On the contrary, the Ottoman sultans periodically pulled back the presumptuous Crimean khans. The letters of the sultans to the Crimean khans on this topic have been preserved.
      Problems arose when the Romanovs, who had come from nowhere, sat on the throne of the Russian Empire in the Time of Troubles.
      The sultans considered Rurikovich brothers.
      By the way, the sultans of the Ottoman dynasty (ALL, from the beginning of the 13th century to the last, Mehmed VI, overthrown in 1922 by Ataturk) haplogroup - R1a, Aryan, which has the majority of the population of Poland, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, the Luzhichians of Germany. And also, the peoples are the descendants of the Scythians: Kyrgyz, Tajiks, Kuban Nogais, some Altai. And also the highest castes of India. Unlike the Romanovs.
      And the British have harmed Russia since the reign of Ivan the Terrible, poisoned him and his family.
      And from the 17th century they began to incite Turkey against Russia. And they are still doing it.

        More precisely, some rivalry began in the middle of the 16th century, when the sultans sometimes provided assistance to the khans.
        But a serious feud began in the 17th century.

          Oh, yes. The army sent by the Turkish Sultan in 1569 of 15 thousand janissaries, two thousand sipahs, several thousand azaps and akinjis is so frivolous. Fun and games are simple :)

          And the Battle of Molody (1572), in which up to 25 thousand people participated from the Russian side. and from the side of the united army of the Crimean Tatars and Turks up to 60 thousand people - is that also not serious?

          And the campaign of the Crimean Khan Devlet-Girey, who was the cousin of the Turkish Sultan, to the Russian kingdom and ended with the siege and fire of Moscow - is that also not serious?

        But if Turkey had problems and she did not go into the sphere of interests of Russia, then the Russians rescued her.

        Bingo :) But there were a lot of conflicting interests between Turkey and Russia, as soon as the latter grew so much that it began to have a serious impact on the Caucasian and Black Sea regions :)

        And in general, until the beginning of the 17th century, there were no wars between Russia and Turkey.

        Lies. The first Russian-Turkish war took place in the second half of the 16th century. The reason is the desire of the Turkish sultan to return Kazan and Astrakhan, which had been conquered not long before, under Turkish influence.

        In general, the first graters between the two countries began in the 15th century, when in 1475 the Muscovy conquered the Crimea and the city of Kafu - then discord began between the two countries. At first, the problems were solved diplomatically, but already in the middle of the 16th century, the first wars began.

        And then there was a Turkish campaign against Kazan and Astrakhan, and so on, and so on, on the rise.

        Problems arose when the Romanovs, who had come from nowhere, sat on the throne of the Russian Empire in the Time of Troubles.

        The Romanovs ascended the throne in 1613, and the first tensions between Russia and Turkey began in the middle of the 16th century.

        The sultans considered Rurikovich brothers.

        What is the basis for such statements? Based on the correspondence of the sultans with the kings and diplomatic messages? Pfff, even now, when the diplomatic language has become much more pragmatic and less pretentious, the same Lukashenko and Putin are constantly repeating about "the fraternal peoples of Russia and Belarus." But this did not prevent the same Lukashenka from putting a spoke in the wheels of the Kremlin - as well as vice versa, however.

        By the way, the sultans of the Ottoman dynasty (ALL, from the beginning of the 13th century to the last, Mehmed VI, overthrown in 1922 by Ataturk) haplogroup - R1a, Aryan, which has the majority of the population of Poland, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, the Luzhichians of Germany.

        Oh, couch genetics began.

        And the British have harmed Russia since the reign of Ivan the Terrible, poisoned him and his family.

        On what basis do you assert that too? Based on the fact that a high content of arsenic and mercury was found in the remains of Grozny? Let me tell you a secret - for that time, these two really dangerous substances were included in a bunch of medicines. In modern historiography, the version of the poisoning of Grozny (especially by the British) is in the nature of an unproven hypothesis.

        And from the 17th century they began to incite Turkey against Russia.

        And who set it at 16?) Americans?)

        Total. The fact that the British and other "Anglo-Saxons" are playing on the contradictions between Turkey and Russia is a historical norm. In the same way, Russia played (and plays) on the contradictions of the same Britain with other countries. Or the same Turkey with the West.

        But playing on existing contradictions is not at all the same as causing these contradictions.

    The process of dividing the world economy into clusters is already underway and cannot be stopped. The emergence and development of parallel organizations, unions, payment systems, currency zones and so on is inevitable. The throne under the hegemordor is swinging more and more.
    Each such news is a carnation fastening a new bow on the skull of globalists laughing
    They do not give up, they are trying to shut the mouths of people, their current president was banned by "tweets" and "mordokniga", the objectionable Parler was simply disconnected from the servers. This kind of freedom of speech is not only for everyone laughing None of this will come of it, it will only prolong the agony of the totalitarian regime of pseudo-democrats. The planet will get rid of this cancerous tumor.
