Subject: re: Iran’s Talks With Russia May Strike at Sanctions
To the Editor:
As rival petro-states, Iran and Russia are most unnatural allies in 2014. They are united only in resentment of economic sanctions from the West. Iran has many more interests in improving ties with Europe, and would bring much to that relationship. Locally, it would be an important ally against ISIS. Globally, it's uniquely positioned to get Europe through the Winter if there are to be real, mordant sanctions against Russia. No one else has the idle natural gas capacity to fill that breach.
