Islamic Revolution thwarted US plans for Mideast: Russian analyst

Moscow, Jan 22, IRNA – The vice-president of the International Eurasian Movement said on Tuesday that 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran has made the United States to modify and alter its different plans for the Middle East.

'Over the past four decades the Islamic Revolution in Iran ' has resulted in Washington's canceling its plans,' said Leonid Savin during an exclusive interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) in Moscow.

The US, over the past four decades, has made a great effort to harness Iran, Savin said, stressing that Washington has not been successful in achieving such an end.

The Russian analyst said imposition of sanctions on Iran constitutes the main part of the US efforts to bring the country to its knees.

More than any other country, Iran has been under sanctions imposed by US and its Western allies, he said.

Iran’s [regional] endeavor has been the major obstacle hindering US from achieving its ends, Savin said, referring to failure of Washington's plans in the region, including occupation of Syria and Iraq.

If Iran were submissive in its approach, US would be capable of implementing its regional plans, he said.

The editor-in-chief of the Russian journal Geopolitika went on to elaborate on Iran’s stance after the Islamic Revolution, saying Iran no longer is Americans' gendarme of the region.

Iran after the victory of the Islamic Revolution adopted a policy of independence that just few countries in the world are capable of following, Savin said.

He also said Washington will continue plotting against Iran as it is in dire need of implementing its expansionist policies in the Middle East.

Referring to Iran's approach towards the Zionist regime of Israel, Savin said Iran is countering the Israeli plots in the region.

'Supporting terrorists constitutes the main component of the Israeli plots in the Middle East, and Iran is confronting these plots,' he said.

He said that unlike Israel, Iran is trying to bring peace and stability to the region.

'Iran is using its leverage to foster regional stability.'
