Things to Know in Regards to Iran Is Syria
A majority of the people in the population do not know that partnerships in the middle east rarely thrive apart from the one between Syria and Iran. Since the beginning of 1979, these two nations have been in a partnership that has seen them grown in terms of their politics, economy and security levels. The political organization and also operations in these countries tend to be similar in that the rulers are rigid and also like running the government independently. A truth that needs to be known is that the manner in which these nations carry out their politics has cemented the relationship between them.
An example is the case where they both saw Iraq as a threat to their security levels and labeled it as a common enemy. They had concerns that the war would result in unrest in their countries and they, therefore, had to act accordingly. The formed partnership connecting Syria to Iran has proven that they have common interests and that they can be able to attack an enemy together.
It is through the formed partnership that they are able to achieve some of their set long-term goals, without finding the need to entertain foreign or domestic calls for them to change. The Syrian government became largely dependent on the Iranian government to supply it with political and also military resources that they needed, once the current ruler took office. The dependence resulted because the country was not able to make sure that they have a mutual and trustworthy alliance with other Arab countries.
At some point, the two countries signed an agreement which allowed their military men to fight together in the elimination of common threats. Although there exist some differences between them, it is with no doubt that they have proven they can work together. For example, Syria is known to stand out as a superior in the Arab secular nationalism whereas Iran is known for its revolutionary movement. The countries have faced international bans due to their ideologies and associations.
In case one country faces war, the other one steps in to assist and this contributes to the strengthening of their partnership. For instance, Syria stepped in during the Iran and Iraq war and also, Iran has been offering the much needed support to the Syrian government, in the fight against the opposition militias. One other thing that has contributed to the cementing of the partnership is that the countries do not get in the way of each other’s interests, and this helps them avoid conflict.
