From the Komersant piece (Mikhail Zygar):

As Iranian Security Council Secretary Ali Larijani told his Russian counterpart, Teheran is prepared to offer Moscow a new form of partnership that will turn Russia into a key player in the Near East. Specifically, using its ties in the Muslim world, Teheran has promised to install Moscow in the role of intermediary in all important negotiations in the region, such as those in Lebanon and Palestine. What is more, Mr. Larijani promised Mr. Ivanov economic benefits as well. For example, according to Teheran's plans, Russian and Iranian companies could start actively establishing themselves in Iraq's oil fields, thanks to the fact that America's control in the country is weakening as Iran's influence increases. Russian firms could also begin to revitalize oil terminals in southern Iraq, while Iran, through its contacts with local Shiite groups, would guarantee the safety of the Russian specialists working at these installations.

LOL! If business/market interests saw that, things would get going for sure. I'll be surprised if they see it, though.

Good evening. Your threads don't get enough bumps.

I met a Persian two weeks ago and mentioned FR and your threads. I hope he checks them out. The msm surely won't cover what happens inside Iran.

Did I spell this correctly? My Farsi is not so good...
