Defying U.S., China and Iran Near Trade and Military Partnership
The investment and security pact would vastly extend China’s influence in the Middle East, throwing Iran an economic lifeline and creating new flash points with the United States.



The partnership was first proposed by President Xi Jinping of China during a visit to Iran where he met his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, in 2016.

Iran and China have quietly drafted a sweeping economic and security partnership that would clear the way for billions of dollars of Chinese investments in energy and other sectors, undercutting the Trump administration’s efforts to isolate the Iranian government because of its nuclear and military ambitions.

The partnership, detailed in an 18-page proposed agreement obtained by The New York Times, would vastly expand Chinese presence in banking, telecommunications, ports, railways and dozens of other projects. In exchange, China would receive a regular — and, according to an Iranian official and an oil trader, heavily discounted — supply of Iranian oil over the next 25 years.
The document also describes deepening military cooperation, potentially giving China a foothold in a region that has been a strategic preoccupation of the United States for decades. It calls for joint training and exercises, joint research and weapons development and intelligence sharing — all to fight “the lopsided battle with terrorism, drug and human trafficking and cross-border crimes.”

The partnership — first proposed by China’s leader, Xi Jinping, during a visit to Iran in 2016 — was approved by President Hassan Rouhani’s cabinet in June, Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said last week.
Iranian officials have publicly stated that there is a pending agreement with China, and one Iranian official, as well as several people who have discussed it with the Iranian government, confirmed that it is the document obtained by The Times, which is labeled “final version” and dated June 2020.

It has not yet been submitted to Iran’s Parliament for approval or made public, stoking suspicions in Iran about how much the government is preparing to give away to China.
In Beijing, officials have not disclosed the terms of the agreement, and it is not clear whether Mr. Xi’s government has signed off or, if it has, when it might announce it.
If put into effect as detailed, the partnership would create new and potentially dangerous flash points in the deteriorating relationship between China and the United States.

It represents a major blow to the Trump administration’s aggressive policy toward Iran since abandoning the nuclear deal reached in 2015 by President Barack Obama and the leaders of six other nations after two years of grueling negotiations.
Renewed American sanctions, including the threat to cut off access to the international banking system for any company that does business in Iran, have succeeded in suffocating the Iranian economy by scaring away badly needed foreign trade and investment.

But Tehran’s desperation has pushed it into the arms of China, which has the technology and appetite for oil that Iran needs. Iran has been one of the world’s largest oil producers, but its exports, Tehran’s largest source of revenue, have plunged since the Trump administration began imposing sanctions in 2018; China gets about 75 percent of its oil from abroad and is the world’s largest importer, at more than 10 million barrels a day last year.
At a time when the United States is reeling from recession and the coronavirus, and increasingly isolated internationally, Beijing senses American weakness. The draft agreement with Iran shows that unlike most countries, China feels it is in a position to defy the United States, powerful enough to withstand American penalties, as it has in the trade war waged by President Trump.
“Two ancient Asian cultures, two partners in the sectors of trade, economy, politics, culture and security with a similar outlook and many mutual bilateral and multilateral interests will consider one another strategic partners,” the document says in its opening sentence.
The Chinese investments in Iran, which two people who have been briefed on the deal said would total $400 billion over 25 years, could spur still more punitive actions against Chinese companies, which have already been targeted by the administration in recent months.

“The United States will continue to impose costs on Chinese companies that aid Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism,” a State Department spokeswoman wrote in response to questions about the draft agreement.
“By allowing or encouraging Chinese companies to conduct sanctionable activities with the Iranian regime, the Chinese government is undermining its own stated goal of promoting stability and peace.”
The expansion of military assistance, training and intelligence-sharing will also be viewed with alarm in Washington. American warships already tangle regularly with Iranian forces in the crowded waters of the Persian Gulf and challenge China’s internationally disputed claim to much of the South China Sea, and the Pentagon’s national security strategy has declared China an adversary.
When reports of a long-term investment agreement with Iran surfaced last September, China’s foreign ministry dismissed the question out of hand. Asked about it again last week, a spokesman, Zhao Lijian, left open the possibility that a deal was in the works.

“China and Iran enjoy traditional friendship, and the two sides have been in communication on the development of bilateral relations,” he said. “We stand ready to work with Iran to steadily advance practical cooperation.”
The projects — nearly 100 are cited in the draft agreement — are very much in keeping with Mr. Xi’s ambitions to extend its economic and strategic influence across Eurasia through the “Belt and Road Initiative,” a vast aid and investment program.

Merika je nemoćna.
40+ miliJona je ostalo bez posla, politička i ekonomska elita u raskolu, obaveštajne službe medjusobno u ratu a i gradjanski rat im ozbiljno preti.
Nemaju više kapaciteta za bilo kakvu ozbiljniju akciju.
Nemaju ni saveznike.
Ovako stvarno mozda izgleda gledajuci kroz medije, pogotovo nase...E sad, posto je USA u istom polozaju kao pre 5 ili 10 godina, posto ce i dalje kao i danas ostati sila broj jedan treba razmisljati kako i zasto mi stalno dolazimo do ovakvih pogresnih zakljucaka... Zasto imamo ovakvu percepciju ili zasto se na nju primamo...
Naravno to ce ostati neistrazeno, jer ce u tim nekim vremenima kao danas ili juce postojati neki nov zakljucak koji upucuje na to da USA propada tek nakon nekoliko desetina godina na vrhu...Mnoge najmocnije drzave svojih vremena su trajale kroz vekove, a neke skoro milenijum, a eto mi zakljucujemo da ce USA dominacija trajati par desetina godina... Ovakvih ludaka je od vajkada...

Iz prve ruke; Amerika je odmah na pocetku epidemije usidrila brodove u luku kod NY i od njih napravila bolnice za kovid... Imaju strucnjaka, imaju volontera, sve funkcionise maksimalno dobro... Cak i znam naseg coveka koji je prelezao kovid u NY bolnici... Bio na kiseoniku... Sve ok sa njim... Hocu reci da nema nekih vecih problema, sve sto treba da radi, radi... Nasi ljudi na gradjevini imaju posla vise nego ikad, a i u drugim oblastima... Proteste vecina nije nigde videla, a niko nije osetio... Putevi su puni automobila kao i do sad, sve ok... Tako da nema ama bas nikakvog osnova reci da utisak koji dobijamo citajuci medije ima veze sa realnoscu...
Znate u USA ima puno nasih ljudi koji su dosli u zadnjoj deceniji i posto kod nas postoji to misljenje o ranjivosti USA mnogi od njih sa tim gledistem su stigli u USA.... Sta se sa njima desilo? Pa shvatili su sta su mediji, a sta je stvarnost... Sada znaju, rade, zaradjuju, salju kuci, ne gledaju Tesu..

Ne pada imperija za dan.
Na vrhuncu i neprikosnoveni su bili pre 25 godina.
Od tada počinje pad, ubrzanje je postalo vidljivo.
Opijeni neograničenom moći, opustili se i napravili puno strateških grešaka.
Proces je nepovratan.
