NI: Russia is too strong to allow Syria to become the " Afghanistan "
Russia fundamentally improved relations with Iran, Iraq, Egypt and Israel, which gives her the opportunity to cover All areas of middle East policy. All of this indicates that the capital of Russia is so strong in the field As ever, and the Syrian Arab Republic, As if neither really wanted the American leader Barack Obama, not for Russia "second Afghanistan," said Dov a Zakhaym, the former Deputy Secretary of defense. About this in his article for The National Interest.

"at the moment, as long as Everyone recognizes that Putin wants to maintain Russia's presence in the Syrian Arab Republic, few realize that Moscow is in a much stronger position in the middle East than it ever was even the USSR," writes the Creator.

Ex-official of the Ministry of defence refers to the history of relations of the USSR with the countries of the Middle East and indicates that support for Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war did relations between the Soviets and Iran strained. In addition, he continues, were difficult and relations between Moscow with Cairo and Jerusalem.

"Anwar Sadat (the former leader of Egypt - ed.) sent 20 thousand Soviet military advisers in 1972, after which Cairo said a strong Alliance with the West. Finally, despite the respect Israel after a short time after its Declaration of independence, Moscow broke off relations with Israel after the war and never restored during the remaining years of the USSR, " writes the Zakhaym.

along with this, he continues, today the situation is very different.

"Let's start with the fact that Iran and Russia currently represent the main bastions of Assad. Russia maintains its friendly relations with Iraq, which is becoming stronger. Russia has strengthened its ties with Egypt: two presidents exchanged state visits for the past 2 years. Finally, Russia has an excellent relationship with the most powerful state in the middle East, namely with the Jewish state. As with Egypt, trade between 2 States continues to grow, including trade deals in arms. In truth, Jerusalem is so attentive to the desires of the capital of Russia, which stopped the supply of arms to Georgia after the Georgian-Ossetian conflict of 2008 and does not resume it until now. Israel also ranges to sell drones and other weapons Ukraine ", - says ex-Deputy Minister of the Ministry of defense.

All these circumstances, he continues, explain why Putin is in a stronger position on the Russian operation in the Syrian Arab Republic, it can be the other in this situation.

"really, Putin covers All the flanks in the middle East, Apart from Jordan and the Gulf countries, but it seems that no one can have any negative impact on its intervention in the Syrian conflict on the side of the Assad government," the Zakhaym.
