Iran is Russia’s strategic ally for a number of historical, geopolitical, and religious reasons, said philosopher, analyst, and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on the air of the Conversation with a Sage program on Radio Zvezda, broadcasted on the YouTube channel on February 10.
“Iran has always been strategically Russia’s friend for many reasons. First: it is, after all, quite strongly turned against the West: by ideology and by all the rest. The second: we have very interesting interactions with it along the North-South and Caspian lines,” Kurginyan explained.
The political scientist also pointed to other circumstances that make cooperation between Russia and Iran possible. He noted that Iran is a great Persian state, which is not limited to the Islamic period.
As the main reason, Kurginyan noted the absence of contradictions between Russia and Iran. He explained that Russia does not have a giant Persian population that “can blow something up here.”
“So I think that our friendship with Iran as well as with India and this whole north-south line is absolutely necessary, and I rejoice in every success there,” the political scientist said.
Kurginyan added that if at the same time Russia could have a long-term friendship with Turkey, it would have to be done. In his opinion, in such a situation, problems with small countries of Transcaucasia would have moved to the background, and “there would have been brotherhood against the United States“. However, according to the expert, there will be no such unified Islamic brotherhood for a number of reasons.
