As a result, the two countries are taking a step by step approach to formulating a model for overall strategic partnership. In this way, the expectations of domestic critics of these relations will be met once development of bilateral relations takes on more speed and the two countries take their cooperation in international developments to a whole new level.

Netanyahu Seeing Dark Clouds in the West
Friday, February 27, 2015

Hormoz Baradaran
These days, the western winds are not bringing good news to Tel Aviv. The old friends in the West are gradually increasing their distance from Israel as if they are trying to evade an Ebola patient. The political culture and overall orientation of the public opinion in Europe and the United States is gradually changing and there is small, if any, tendency to continue their costly support for Israelis. Israel, on the other hand, has had no choice, but to leave the West and turn toward the East; toward New Delhi, Beijing and Tokyo.

Incentives and Impediments to Iran-Russia Military Cooperation
Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Alireza Noori
As the existing trends show, the number of agreement that have been signed between Iran and Russia, but their implementation has been hampered due to a host of bilateral, regional and international reasons is not small. The contract for the construction of Bushehr nuclear power plant, the contract for the delivery of S-300 missile system, and a recent memorandum of understanding to swap oil for goods are but a few examples to the point. Military cooperation between Iran and Russia has a long and bumpy road to go. Under present circumstances, both countries are more willing for cooperation.
