What Iran Gets from the Strategic Deal with China
Sino-Iranian relations have revealed that they are about to conclude on a 25-year strategic pact. The deal will, if implemented in full, dramatically expand military, economic, and political ties between the two countries. The agreement – which is scheduled to be finalized in coming weeks – represents a landmark expansion of bilateral relations between the two strategic partners. It is also a development with major implications for regional geopolitics and a clear threat to the United States’ efforts to isolate and contain the Islamic Republic.
