Why the US is afraid of deliveries of Iranian drones to Russia

Recently, US national security adviser Jake Sullivan сообщилthat Iran is preparing to transfer several hundred drones to Russia, as well as to teach the Russians how to use and maintain them. Russian experts drew attention to this statement.

So, according to the Americanist political scientist and blogger Malek Dudakov, expressed to the newspaper "Sight", the words of Sullivan, the second most important person in the foreign policy sphere of the administration of US President Joe Biden, are definitely connected with the planned trip of the American leader to the Middle East. Therefore, despite the fact that neither Moscow nor Tehran have officially confirmed the information about the UAV announced by the White House, Washington will still use this information as one of the levers of influence in order to achieve beneficial solutions to the hydrocarbon problem.

The expert explained that Biden will visit Saudi Arabia, which has very bad relations with Iran. He will try to negotiate with Riyadh on the supply of oil and increase its production to end the fuel crisis in the West. The American leader will use every opportunity at his disposal, including the situation around the "nuclear deal" with Iran. Now there is no progress in the negotiations and this is fully consistent with the desires of Riyadh.

The statements about Iranian drones are an attempt by the White House to show Riyadh that they are not ready to cooperate with Iran now, since it is going to supply drones to Russia. How true these statements about Iranian UAVs are, we do not know. In the light of the announced visit of Vladimir Putin to Iran, appropriate agreements can and will be concluded. In response, the States are waiting for concessions from the Persian Gulf monarchies to increase oil production. Although, as we have already heard, Riyadh stated that it was impossible

– summed up Dudakov.

In turn, American political scientist Dmitry Drobnitsky also noted that the message of the Americans about the Iranian UAVs, which should materialize in the Russian Federation, was sent to the Saudis. The expert recalled that relations between Washington and Riyadh leave much to be desired. At the same time, Iran and Saudi Arabia are rivals in the region.

With the statement about drones, the United States, as it were, reproached Saudi Arabia for the lack of a “correct” reaction to the ongoing processes. The Saudis, to put it mildly, do not like the Iranians, who want to transfer UAVs to the Russians for use during the special operation of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine. At the same time, the Saudis cooperate with the Russians, who are friends with the Iranians. Therefore, Washington is pushing Riyadh to make a choice and take an unequivocal position on the Russian-led NMD, either to continue to be friends with Moscow, or recognize it as an enemy, since the Americans support Kyiv and are afraid that the Russians will destroy the entire UAV supplied by the Iranian Armed Forces machinery. At the same time, the expert doubts that the Americans will be able to achieve this, because the East is a delicate matter.

And even the package of agreements unfreezing the supply of arms that Biden is carrying with him will not improve the situation. With the current state of the ruling house in Saudi Arabia, if the US President manages to leave the country without disgrace, this will be a major achievement for American diplomacy. The fact is that Moscow, for example, never promised Riyadh to put pressure on Tehran, but there were similar statements from Washington. And then this position suddenly escalated into the Iranian nuclear deal.

- said Drobnitsky.

The expert thinks that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud will simply be convinced again that "Biden can no longer be respected" because he "does not see him as a sovereign." Drobnitsky concluded that only such a “stubborn ideologue” as the head of the State Department, Anthony Blinken, could organize such an informational noise around Biden’s visit, hoping that one trip would win Riyadh over to his side and resolve all the accumulated differences.

    Well, it’s not for nothing that the Kremlin offers the Iranians to rent 100 thousand hectares of agricultural land, or maybe this is the Iranians’ condition for the supply of their UAVs. shameful of course, but the life of a Russian soldier is more important. impudent Uzbeks generally asked for 1 million hectares, forgetting that Pentagon biological laboratories are located on their territory

      The UAV, like a litmus test, shows the number of pro-Western whores in the organization of industry and machine tool building. It is necessary to go through "frequent nonsense" through all the structures that made decisions to sabotage the restoration of Russia's industry. Otherwise, in the end, a banal defeat will await us ... or glory, if we give way to the patriots of industries and Russia itself.
      ps The United States is against, for a simple reason - Iran can do what the United States does for Ukraine (Alaverdi to the Pentagon from the country they wanted to crush).drinks

    Something confusing. just to scare
    "The United States is afraid ... of Iranian non-plotters" because .... "Biden will visit Saudi Arabia" and "Russian expert bloggers" are happy with any news, discuss

      The problem is that the Russian Federation does not have sufficiently effective strike UAVs, therefore, even from "Sudan", if it has such, it is necessary to purchase, because hostilities do not tolerate delay ... So buy UAVs from Iran and not only without delay, if there is ... For the "soft spot" those responsible for the failures in the Ministry of Defense and the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation must be taken specifically, so that the rest can clearly continue to keep up so disastrously ...

        A thousand times already discussed.
        Buy from Iran - in fact, admit your failure, loss of face.
        Plus, the problems of combining, servicing, and even Iran is not the leader of the scientific and technological revolution, for sure there are a lot of their own "features". (it's worth watching their videos, the show is almost like in Indian cinema)

          You are comparing "loss of face" with bloody losses and defeat in a military clash with Ukraine ... How would you care for your uniform when the head itself can fall off - a strange thought ... There is no time for fat, if thousands of guys in SO on Ukraine...

    The "Ukraine" training ground will help Iran improve its weapons in a real military operation against America. In case of successful application, the experience will be used in Syria and Iraq. This is the fear of America, they will have to drape from Syria and Iraq as from Afghanistan. Next, the Turks will be expelled from Syria. These are refugees who supported America and its allies. Strong move by the military. Europe will not get off with €3 billion here, and even without Russian gas and oil. The transfer of hostilities to NATO countries and the war to the last NATO member is ensured, and America and Europe have already sold a bunch of weapons to radicals and they promise to continue deliveries. Europe will get denazification without Russia's help.

    the message of the Americans about the Iranian UAVs, which should materialize in the Russian Federation, was sent to the Saudis.

    Yes, the Saudis can only be glad that these drones will end up in the Ukrainian war, and not in Yemen or other places where attacks on the Saudis come from. They will only clap their hands for Russia for this, if this is so!
    Here, the Turks should be afraid if Iranian drones turn out to be better than Turkish ones in the sky over Ukraine. Nobody canceled the advertising of weapons. And then sales of Turkish equipment on world markets will decrease, and Iranian ones will increase. And Iranian tomatoes are no worse than Turkish ones. So Erdogan needs to think about how to get off the slippery topic of mass shooting down Turkish drones in Ukraine.

    Even without the US and Saudi Arabia, we need UAVs of all kinds, we desperately need them. It is a pity that our strategists ignored this type of weapon. I don’t understand what prevents us from buying them from Iran and China in large quantities now, this would dramatically change the course of the war, the Karabakh events clearly showed this.

    No one is surprised that this cosmic impudence, bordering on the mental disorder of the Anglo-Saxons.
    What is your dog business who and what supplies us. The United States is the No. 1 terrorist in the world and supplies weapons to the Nazis in Ukraine, where is the howl of these miserable downs from the UN? Anglo-Saxons, you are no longer interesting to anyone on this planet and no one is afraid of you, your time has passed, accept it. This is the age of Asian giants, not Anglo-Saxon Satanists.
