World: The 25-year strategic pact between China and Iran has been considered a significant event in view of the increasing mobilization in the world. Experts say that this treaty will have far-reaching effects for the Gulf region and the rest of the world. This is being seen as another major challenge to the US-led world order.
Significantly, at this time, both China and Iran are targeted by the countries of the American camp. Russia is also targeted by the United States, which has recently deepened its relations with China. The China-Iran Pact will increase Iran’s role in China’s Belt and Road Initiative. On the other hand, China’s selfishness will be born under the protection of Iran. This will have a long term effect. China will invest $ 400 billion in Iran under the new treaty. American analysts have pointed out that Iran has already become more and more dependent on China in economic matters due to US sanctions. Now it has also become a part of China’s strategic initiative.
China’s influence will increase throughout West Asia.
Experts say that the new Sino-Iran treaty may increase China’s influence throughout West Asia. At the same time, it may revoke the American intention to isolate Iran.
The policy did not change towards China even after the arrival of Biden
Some strategic experts have alleged that American strictures forced Iran and China to deepen mutual relations. These two countries hoped that American policy would change if Biden became president, but it did not. During the presidential election campaign, Biden promised to bring the US back to the 2015 nuclear treaty with Iran, but imposed new terms on Iran after becoming president. Now the result has emerged as a new challenge.
Foreign ministers signed the treaty
The treaty was signed on Saturday by Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Jawad Zarif and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who visited Tehran. Iran has said that the treaty is a document to deepen political and economic relations between the two countries. It has a complete roadmap for trade, economic and transport related cooperation.
Jinping traveled to Tehran in 2016
However, the intention of the Sino-Iran Comprehensive Strategic Partnership Agreement was first expressed in 2016, when Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Tehran. The agreement has been formalized. This agreement means that Iran will now have full participation in China’s Belt and Road Initiative project. Under the Belt and Road Initiative project, China is creating separate trade routes to its allied countries. It is also running infrastructure projects in those countries.
The need for a new path is being felt amid the Suez Canal incident
The signing of the Iran-China agreement comes at a time when the world’s attention is focused on the Suez Canal incident. Transportation through the canal has been disrupted due to a huge container ship being trapped. In such a situation, the need for different trade routes is being felt all over the world.
China’s foreign minister Wang did this sarcasm.
Over the decades, China has emerged as a major trading partner of Iran. The time China and its partner countries imposed restrictions on it, China has been a big support for it. Now China has got the benefit of this role. At the time of signing the treaty, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang praised Iran’s independent foreign policy. He insinuates that Iran is not among those countries whose policy changes with just one phone call.
