Putin Warns Against Attack On Client Iran

From France’s AFP:

Putin warns against Iran attack on landmark visit

by Aresu Eqbali

Russian President Vladimir Putin Tuesday warned against military action against Iran and backed its right to nuclear energy, during the first visit to the country by a Kremlin chief since World War II.

Putin, attending a summit meeting of Caspian Sea states, arrived in the Iranian capital amid heavy security and secrecy over his travel plans after reports a squad of suicide bombers planned to kill him.

It is important… that we not only do not use any kind of force but also do not even think about the possibility of using force,” Putin told the four other Caspian Sea leaders gathered for the summit.

“It is also important that we talk about the impossibility of using our territory for other countries to carry out aggression or military action against other Caspian littoral states.”

Along with the presidents of Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan, Putin declared the states “would not allow their territory to be used by a third country to commit military action against one of the parties.” …

The declaration also supported Iran’s right to nuclear energy, which the United States claims Tehran only wants as cover for a atomic weapons drive…

Thank goodness we bailed Russia out in WWII and then after they lost the Cold War. And a good thing we got them into the World Trade Organization.

They are such good friends. And not just to the US, but to the world.
