Georgia and Russia change “nuclear” polarization2010-02-17 14:11
Iran and Georgia seem to adopt a unique vision after Russia's inclination towards sanctions against Teheran. Iranians that used to condemn the Georgian aggression now emphasize they are not ready for Abkhazia's and South Ossetia's recognition. This is not the first prick against Russia over the recent months. Tbilisi, however, is truly offbeat flirting with Iran that blackmails Russia.
Taking revenge on Moscow makes countries get together as evident from growing affection between Georgia and Iran.
Yesterday Iranian Ambassador to Russia Seyed Makhmudreza Sadzhadi in an interview with Ekho Moskvy stated that recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia was not part of the Islamic Republic's main policy. "We believe this can spark other wars and bloodshed. We haven't recognized Kosovo's independence either", - he added.
Iran's anti-US policy made it possible for Ossetians and Abkhazians to expect that the country would follow Latin Americans in recognition. All the more so that as the ambassador justly remarked, Teheran criticized the Georgian aggression and was planning to assist with restoration in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Now however he made it absolutely clear there would be no playing along with Moscow on the issue.
Iranian-Russian relations have cooled off considerably over recent months in view of Washington-proposed "reset". Earlier Russia believed it due to counterpoise its stand on Iran to the Western countries. Now there are apprehensions about Iran's nuclear program at top level.
Last September Russia's NATO Envoy Dmitry Rogozin stated Russia did not approve creation of weapons of mass destructions in the countries that could reach Russia. In November President Dmitry Medvedev hinted at Russia's possible adherence to sanctions against Iran at the meeting with his US counterpart Barack Obama.
It will be remembered that Teheran refuses to accept a proposal to enrich uranium in third countries for fear of fraud at the time of fuel exchange.
Thereafter Russia backed IAEA's resolution condemning Iran's construction of a secret uranium enrichment plant. Besides Russia suspended supplies of C-300 missile complexes to Iran.
In reply to the change in Russia's stand Iran expressed willingness to join Nabucco gas project set against Russia's economic and geopolitical interests and promised to help Turkmenia in resources transportation for the gas line.
Early this year Mahmoud Ahmadinejad invented a new way to show his discontent to Moscow announcing he would seek restitution of the damage incurred by Iran upon entry of Soviet and GB troops in 1941. Given Russia's acute reaction to diminution of its role in struggle against fascism and heroization of Nazi collaborationists in ex Socialist states the Iranian leader found the best suited point for a blow.
As was reported on January 19 Iran denied access to a Russian battle plane on its way to Bahrain air show.
There are enough reasons for sorting out relations but the visit of Said Jalili, Iran's Secretary of Supreme Council for National Security to Moscow is postponed. Today Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu is coming to Russia instead. As journalists sneer: he comes for sanctions against Iran.
The experts presume that PM Vladimir Putin will try to negotiate refusal to supply Iran with missiles for Israel's guarantees to stop arming Georgia. However Netanyahu has already refuted information provided by the Russian special services on resumed supplies of arms.
