This does not mean that Russo-Iranian or Sino-Iranian ties are solely military in nature. No, the purpose of the three independent powers of Asia is to safeguard the security of the region and the world.
And this includes busting of the West’s hold on international commercial and financial exchanges through the economic terrorism in the form of the illegal sanctions.
The ties ought to be so strong that no sanctions can affect Iran, Russia, and China.
