Developments in Afghanistan and China’s Strategy

Strategic Council Online – Although China has the shortest border length (76 km) with Afghanistan due to the “Wakhan Corridor”, it is one of its most important neighbors.

New Approach in Turkish Foreign Policy; Consequences & Prospects

Strategic Council Online – In recent weeks, the Turkish government, in the shadow of media silence, has been shaping certain frameworks in its foreign relations with some countries and players in the region, including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the Zionist regime which could be analyzed and evaluated with such indicators as “pragmatic rotation”, “balancing” or “foreign policy reform”; until recently, Ankara had more or less escalated tensions with those countries and players, and even went as far as political and security conflicts.

State of Reaction to Israel’s Breach of Russian Red Lines in Syria

Strategic Council Online – The recent attacks by Israeli jet fighters on areas in the northwest of Syria are a serious warning for the beginning of a new round of the regime’s disputes with Russia in Syria. Until recently, relations between Russia and the Zionist regime in Syria, according to Moscow’s considerations, were defined on the basis of the principle of coordination in some areas of security and intelligence, but with the recent Zionist regime invasion of areas northwest of Syria, where Russian forces are stationed, the previous coordination will be undermined.

Opportunities for Cooperation in Iran-China 25-Year Document

Strategic Council Online – In recent weeks, foreign media, mainly those affiliated with US political circles, some European countries, the Zionist regime and certain Arab states, have been projecting on the 25-year Iran-China document and have gone as far as labeling it a colonial document! And with the tactics of psychological operations and soft destruction, the document has been used as a pretext to undermine its strategic importance in the social body and domestic public opinion at a time when those countries are one of China’s largest trading partners in the world and have growing economic relations with China. The present article emphasizes the opportunities of the 25-year document for Iran which, by understanding a part of it, we can understand the reasons for the opposition of foreign and hostile governments to it.

Consequences of the dangerous game of the Zionist regime to undermine Iran’s national security

Strategic Council Online—Opinion: The national security of the Islamic Republic of Iran is considered as the “main redline “of Iran in the regional, international, bilateral and multilateral environments. This very significant and key element guarantees the life and survival and sustainability of Iran and its political system against physical and non-physical foreign and domestic threats especially under the present circumstances in which crises and turbulences have surrounded Iran and the Islamic Republic of Iran is exposed to threats from all sides. National security is so much strategically significant and fundamental that Iran would mobilize all the necessary tools, on the basis of its right of self-defense, to counter threats against its national security.

Winners and losers of the Yemen war in figures

Strategic Council Online—Opinion: When the Saudi court started the invasion of Yemen and attacked this territory from the land, air, and sea with the hope of capturing it in several days and destroy Ansarallah, the Saudis and their regional and international allies could not have even imagined that this war, despite the huge damages on Yemen, would not end in the overthrow of the Ansarallah and the occupation of Yemen and the establishment of a Saudi-allied regime, but would turn into a turning point for the mighty display of the power of the Islamic resistance and the shameful failure of the Saudi regime.

Model Ruling over Iran-Turkey Relations; Cooperation and Political Rivalry

Strategic Council Online – Note: Iran and Turkey are the two important countries in the West Asia region and inheritors of great empires and historical hegemony that have always been in “competition and cooperation” with each other. Although the two countries have different and sometimes competitive roles and effects in the region and disagree on various issues, those differences have never meant ignoring and overshadowing the many common interests in bilateral relations.

Turkey on the verge of involvement in the Yemen case

Strategic Council Online—Editorial: Turkey is one of the main regional players which has been pursuing an aggressive foreign policy during the past several years—a country which once prioritized in its foreign policy the zero-tension approach with its neighbors but has now turned down that policy by entering into various levels of political, security, military and field operational engagements in the West Asia, the Caucasus and North Africa regions. In fact, you can find very few hot spots in the region in which Turkey has not been actively involved.
