Moscow Blocking US Anti-Iran Policies

A prominent Russian analyst underlined Iran’s anti-terrorism efforts in the region and said Moscow is a major impediment to Washington’s hostile moves against Tehran.
“Russia is a major obstacle to the US aggressive goals against Iran and today, Washington is seeking to find a way to sow discord between the two countries and therefore, when [US President Donald] Trump says that he will fight against terrorism along with Russia, he means that we [Russia] will betray Iran. This is while Iran is a real partner for Russia in the fight against terrorism and its partnership is not confined to paying lip service,” said Veronika Krasheninnikova, director general of the Institute for Foreign Policy Research and Initiatives in Moscow, Fars News Agency reported.
She underscored that if the US president really wants to fight terrorism, he does not need Iran and Russia, and he should merely call Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, and tell them to stop playing with terrorism in the region.
Her remarks came after Russia’s top diplomat said excluding Tehran from the anti-terror coalition would be a mistake.
“Barring Iran from the anti-terror coalition on the basis of unsubstantiated allegations would not be sensible,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Sunday in an interview with the NTV channel.
“If there are suspicions, then let’s consider them. But to exclude Iran from the anti-terrorist coalition on one’s bare word is not sensible, and the United States is famous for being sensible,” he said.
