IRGC-N and Iraq Navy sign cooperation agreement

Iran's Revolutionary Guard Navy (designated a terrorist organization by USGOV) has signed an agreement to expand cooperation with the Iraq Navy, something unthinkable before the U.S. military invasion of Iraq (OIF).

From PressTV:
The agreement was signed on Tuesday by the IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi and Commander of the Iraqi Navy Vice Admiral Ali Hussain Ali.
The document calls for expanding cooperation among the two countries’ navies, arranging mutual visits for naval forces and holding joint drills.

We keep hearing that Iran is more isolated than ever due to U.S. diplomatic pressure. Than we read about the Peace Pipeline agreement with Pakistan, and now this-- with the IRGC no less.

The Americans won the war, the Iranians won the peace and the Turks won the contracts.

The IRGC and Iraqi "navy" want to make sure their drug and smuggling operations are as smooth and as stealthy as possible.

Iran darn well IS isolated and building a pipeline to send Pakistan oil for which it has not money to pay is going to change anything. nor will getting tight with Iraq be of much utility.

neither nor both will even make up for the loss to Iran of the Assad regime.... not to mention the possible loss to Iran of Venezuelan support.

you're not a serious person, just a third-rate junior Walter Duranty

There is no doubt that the nation of IRAN will definitely emerge as a real power and player in the whole region of the Middle East in the near future.
