Big victory for Russia: Moscow may get access to the Indian Ocean


In Russian the economy an unexpected but positive breakthrough may soon occur. Iran announced its intention to join the main integration association in the post-Soviet space, the EAEU. What prospects will then open for Tehran itself, Moscow and other members of the Eurasian Economic Union?


The EAEU members are Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, all five countries are former Soviet republics. Uzbekistan, Moldova and Cuba, once friendly to the USSR, also act as observers. And now, after his visit to Moscow, Speaker of the Parliament Mohammad Kalibaf announced the desire of the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) to join the Eurasian Union. Why does Tehran need this, and why is a breakthrough in this direction happening right now?

The motives of the Iranian leadership are not difficult to understand. Iran with its 80 million population, developed industry and huge reserves of hydrocarbons is objectively one of the richest countries in Asia and the entire Muslim world. However, its potential has been undermined by decades of Western sanctions. Under Barack Obama, local reformers were able to secure the conclusion of a "nuclear deal", which led to the removal of many restrictions and an increase in the volume of oil and gas exports. The level of well-being of the population gradually began to grow. However, President Trump unilaterally withdrew from this agreement and re-imposed sanctions. All economic gains were thrown back, the Islamic Republic's GDP began to decline sharply. In the last parliamentary elections in Iran, the conservatives, pursuing an anti-American course, took revenge. Obama's successor, President Joe Biden, officially declares his readiness to return to the deal, but in practice only increases pressure on Iran to conclude it on even more favorable terms for the United States and Israel. Integration with the EAEU will allow Tehran to solve several problems at once.

At first, accession, or rather, the threat of accession to the economic association created around Russia will be a serious trump card in his negotiations with Washington. Deepening cooperation between Moscow and Tehran runs counter to the interests of the White House in the Middle East region.

Secondly, Iran will gain access to new markets for its products. Apparently, a breakthrough in this issue happened after the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, which led to an agreement between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan on the opening of transport corridors throughout the Transcaucasia. In addition, unexpectedly faced with a competitor in the person of Turkey for transit from Asia to Europe through the Caspian Sea, Moscow has intensified its North-South project, expanding its infrastructure on the coast of the Caspian Sea. Iran, in turn, will now have to hastily complete the long-planned railways. By joining the Eurasian Economic Union, Tehran will have free access to the 200 millionth market for its products, which will definitely not be superfluous for the Islamic Republic, languishing under Western sanctions.

ThirdlyIran is extremely interested in increasing settlements in national currencies. Having lost the export of hydrocarbons due to sanctions, Tehran was left without receiving dollar revenues, therefore it was forced to restrict operations with foreign currencies for individuals. This led to the emergence of two dollar rates: official and "street". At the same time, the Iranian rial began to rapidly devalue, the prices for imported goods and foodstuffs rose, inflation reached appalling values. The population became poorer, protest moods grew. A big plus for Tehran is the desire of the EAEU member states to settle among themselves in their national currencies, which will improve its trade balance.

The Islamic Republic objectively needs to break free from the press of Western restrictions, and this can be done only by joining an alternative European interstate economic association. But why does Russia need it?

Iran's entry into the EAEU is extremely beneficial for our country as well. First of all, it will breathe new life into this integration project. His big misfortune was that Ukraine, with its developed industry under the USSR and its 40-million market, was overboard. Political the situation in Armenia and Belarus is far from stable. 80 million Iran with its gigantic hydrocarbon reserves can become a real driver for the further development of the EAEU. The economic borders of the association will expand from the Arctic to the Indian Oceans and the Persian Gulf. Through Iran, Russia will have direct access to the Indian market, the third economy in the world. The Eurasian Union will cease to be a local "get-together" in the post-Soviet space. Its combined sales market will grow to 280 million people, and this may be just the beginning. If Tehran's example is successful, other countries may follow.

Political changes will be even more significant. In contrast to the United States, Iran itself is trying to pursue a multi-vector policy. He cooperates with China, having concluded a 25-year investment agreement, but he does not intend to fully "go to bed" under it, and therefore seeks to diversify through unification with the EAEU. For Russia, integration with the Islamic Republic is also beneficial because it strengthens economic ties with India, as opposed to the overgrowth of the Celestial Empire. For New Delhi, this, in turn, is interesting because reliance on Russia through Iran will serve as a certain alternative to both China and the United States. It turns out a kind of mutually beneficial system of regional checks and balances.

Now it remains to see whether Tehran's declarations will diverge from its deeds. Integration processes are a very difficult and slow thing, since it is necessary to harmonize national legislation and a host of regulations, as well as to build all the necessary transport infrastructure. If the Iranian authorities are consistent, then global and positive geopolitical changes will follow.

    The Iranian authorities plan to expand the number of sea resorts in the country, and at the same time provide an opportunity for medical and ecological recreation. At the moment, there are several options for modern healing and putting your thoughts in order. Among the most famous resorts of the state, the city of Terbiz can be distinguished.

    The unique cultural capital of the eastern part of the state will be able to delight guests with Lake Urmia, balneological resorts and medical centers. According to the researchers, the composition of the water in the lake correlates with the Dead Sea, which makes it possible to treat diseases with bones, joints and the cardiovascular system. There is a large national park near the city, which is filled with amazing flora and fauna.

          Not, not necessarily. fellow

          North - South (NS) is an international transport corridor (ITC) project.

          The transport corridor is designed to provide transport links between the Baltic States and India through Iran.

          The main advantages of the North-South transport corridor over other routes (in particular, over the sea route through the Suez Canal) are called: a twofold or more reduction in the distance of transportation, as well as a decrease in the cost of transporting containers in comparison with the cost of transportation by sea.

          The length of the international transport corridor will be 7,2 thousand kilometers. [3]

          PS

          Does Iran border on India? (Except in alternative geography named after Marzhetsky)

          There is not a word in the text that Iran borders on India. You either do not understand the meaning of what is written, or you are a fan of "juggling" the written as far as you can

          Could be so yes Only production is mainly in the European part. This is to drag by train across the whole country, further by sea or directly through the Northern Sea Route. In any case, there is Japan and their "lodgers" beyond the straits and the ships of our potential partners are spinning everywhere. laughing This route is easier to control, since everything is covered from the southern coast of the Caspian. Surely in 3-4 years a naval base in the Indian Ocean will appear.
          The topic is interesting for the economy. Development of ports on the Caspian Sea, Russian Railways load, road transport, development of inland waterways. Iran has a decent sales market and alternative supplies of all kinds of persimmons, "peaches-shmersiki" and more. And all this without dollars and using our electronic payment system.
          In general, something like this drinks

    Iran is in a political and economic blockade, imposed by sanctions, is subject to state terror from Israel and the United States, which are intensively forming an anti-Iranian military-political bloc and are threatening war demanding disarmament in order to bring an obedient government to power, dictate conditions and legitimately rob.
    The experience of Syria, which, under pressure from the United States, abandoned an entire class of weapons under international supervision in the hope of stopping a foreign invasion, clearly went wrong with Iran - everything is trying to negotiate and thus delaying the creation of nuclear weapons. Kim-To-Eun is smarter in North Korea - first money, then chairs.
    In the position of Iran, it is logical to make a decision to join any union or organization independent of the United States. It is surprising why this was not done much earlier and why only in the EAEU.

    The EAEU is the right direction for Russia. But the Russian economy is not ready for this. Therefore, other states are not ready to join this union. And most importantly, Russia does not force anyone to join it. For example Armenia. And Russia is obliged to subjugate such countries. After all, the United States is not shy, Germany is too. Economically, Russia can subjugate all the republics of the USSR. Why is the Russian authorities not striving for this? After all, the benefits are obvious! And there is no need to fight. If economic levers are not weakened, let's see what happens to the Baltics in a couple of years. If the Russian authorities acted through the economy, then there would be less Russophobia. Mediocrity! And this is still the most censorship word for our government!

    On the "related" site Topwar there is an author Yevgeny Damantsev, who also writes "controversial" articles. But what the author is E. Damantsev becomes immediately after reading a couple of paragraphs. Because he "HAS A STYLE". And Mr. Marzhetsky has neither style, nor analysis, nor even upbringing. Some ambitions "a la Igor Severyanin" and shattered nerves.

    I, the genius Igor Severyanin,
    His victory is ascribed to:
    I'm posegerually okraknen!
    I am always approved!


    Therefore, either develop your own style so that the authorship is clear, or write your last name at the beginning of the article. I guarantee the absence of the fact of reading and, accordingly, comments.

I think things will not move further than the declaration of the wishlist. The dark grandmaster will not get involved in these showdowns either. "Friendship" of Iran and the United States has a long history with longstanding "traditions" of exchange of pleasantries. There will be no open alliance.

    An ally is never superfluous. No matter what they say, Iran is a large state with large reserves of natural resources, with a fairly independent policy on the world stage. Yes, the history of our relations has never been simple, but now there is an opportunity to improve them. Neighbor who can to become a friend is never superfluous.

    It seems, in general, everything is so ... Do not forget that Iran is a "radioactive" state. Relationships with such are always fraught with problems. Automatic opposition to the collective West in general and the states in particular. In the system of counterbalances, you immediately get a counterbalance to Turkey, Azerbaijan, Israel and the Arab world.
    Even if everything can be settled with counterbalances, it is more difficult to do it with the basic ideology of the Islamic Republic. There, at the heart of the export of the Islamic revolution is more abruptly than the world socialist revolution.

      Well, yes, the Saudis, the friends of the States, have a different basic ideology ... They cut a journalist (American) into pieces and just business. If the United States had pushed the Shah into Iran again, then perhaps the Saudis would have been punished. And so, they cannot yet. Allies.

        Horseradish radish is not sweeter. Perhaps the radish is less aggressive and less sharpened for the export of the Islamic revolution.

    The Russian economy may soon see an unexpected but positive breakthrough

    - you need to work, and not rely on all their uncles, over the hill and political games. And to work is to raise the economy, destroyed in the 90s and finished off in the 00s, to pinch the oligarchs, to screw up the fifth, sixth and the eleventh columns and, in general, it's time to get down to business, dear President. And then you and the Prime Minister have begun to carry a blizzard lately. It is necessary and much tougher! And then the Premier has only one misfortune - fools and roads. They think something about the roads, how is football and the deputies also a plus. Another inspection of the car ... These, the sellers of striped sticks, only this feeder was not enough. Change, and only. Bitter, however. And forget about Gagarin's space.

    Good perspective. But for later. But specifically now it would be possible to transfer all salary payments of military and civil servants from Sberbank to some kind of purely Russian Bank. And instead of the big money to withdraw to foreign savings holders, this money would remain in Russia for the use of the national economy. What prevents to act more patriotic ???

    Iran, no matter what the enemies of Russia say there, of which, unfortunately, there are quite a few both inside the country and in the government itself, is vitally important for Russia. By establishing a strategic partnership with Iran, Russia would not only ensure stability in the Transcaucasus and Central Asia, but would finally make it respect itself in the world, not to mention its economic benefits. Alas! The enemies of Russia are well aware of this and will not disdain any means to torpedo this project in every possible way. They do not need a strong Russia, it is enough to read many comments to this article.

    Even under the Russian Empire, the issue of building a canal from the Caspian to the Indian Ocean was considered. They say now this is a question of 10 bucks. And that would be the steepest of the century!
