The end of 7 years of stalemate in the relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia, which had caused many problems and crises, can undoubtedly bring desired achievements to the region’s people. We didn’t target this country in the worst possible way, instead we restored relationship with Saudi Arabia. Why is that?

The head of Saudi Security Institutions signed an agreement which is the narrative of a mere failure for the American-Israeli axis. Because they expected that the relations between Riyadh and Tel Aviv enter into a new phase and the two sides make it public after years of secret negotiations and security relations. It seems the Saudi Crown Prince has become more aware that America is no longer reliable. After the region emptied of its presence, the Zionists were not men of action and could not do what the Saudi family requires.

While the negotiations between Iran and Saudi Arabia at the levels of diplomatic representatives in Baghdad hold in several rounds, bin Salman made his largest investment in a fundamental partnership as the last playing card to disrupt security and social order in Iran. There was nothing but sedition at the highest levels by investing in buying people, creating multiple anti-Iranian media, sending terrorist groups inside Iran, and activating terrorist elements and weapons at the borders, which started their work at the beginning of this year.

In the fall, they entered the implementation phase of lying, spreading discord, and trying to create a civil war and destroy security in Iran, with unprecedented cooperation with the Brussels NATO Operation Center and extensive cooperation of the Zionists. It was the last attempt of Bin Salman and his security apparatus to overcome Iran. The events of the past six months finally led him to the end of this story; The Situation is not In His Favor.

Iran’s practical warnings, the widespread movement of missiles, and the readiness declaration in the country’s military forces in the south to retaliate against the Saudis caused excessive panic in Riyadh. During the past few days, Bin Salman even left the capital, fearing the other side may hit its palaces. Iranians hesitated to attack the Saudis merely for the World Cup. But his determination to retaliate was dogma and a serious plan. Due to this reason, the Saudis sent different mediators to Tehran to remind them that they had no role in the events of Iran, but none of these mediators could dissuade Tehran from the action it wanted to take.

While Saudi Arabia was encouraged by the support of Europe and the United States, they also made empty threats against Iran, which had no direct effect on the final decision. The west influxes against Iran were hollow.

While Saudi Arabia was encouraged by the support of Europe and the United States, they also made empty threats against Iran, which had no direct effect on the final decision. The west influxes against Iran were hollow.

At this point, the Saudis reached the determinative conclusion that they could not do anything against the will of Iran. Saudis spent several billion U.S. dollars and gave free money to Persian-speaking mercenaries to create chaos in Iran’s cities without any positive achievement. On the contrary direct attack on Riyadh became probable. Bin Salman was afraid of Iranians and Yemenis attacking Saudi Arabia from the east and west and that the western countries milked him and his fathers for decades, as much as not even an exercise cartridge will help him.

At this point, the Saudis, terrified of an unpredicted with severe consequences, learned from the attack in 2019 and took the Chinese into their arms. Beijing’s officials asked Iran to stop attacking Saudi Arabia temporarily, giving the president of this country a chance for a few months in this field.

However, the Saudis did not stop trying and tried to test their last chance through Westerners and the Zionists. Bin Salman’s requests from Washington were summarized in a few cases, while America’s demands from him were numerous and sometimes difficult to implement.

While everyone thought that the United States could restore relations between Riyadh and Tel Aviv, the condition that the Saudi crown prince placed was a big stone that not only in the White House, no one dared to remove, but also in Tel Aviv, the leaders of the Zionist regime were not ready to think about it for a moment. What if they want to accompany it and allow the Saudis to obtain nuclear knowledge, even if it is as much as an assembly?

The missiles that brought Bin Salman to his senses

The truth is; Iran’s threat was serious. The presence of senior officials of the army and the Ministry of Defense of Jordan, Qatar, and Oman in Bandar Abbas, who were all Saudi intermediaries and to prevent Iran’s practical action, did not lead anywhere. I wrote that the Qatar World Cup was very deterrent, and all countries had made commitments in this regard during the summer visit of the commander of the IRGC Navy to Doha.

An agreement was made between Iran and Doha to establish maritime security for these games. The Iran IRGC Navy was in the domain. With the help of the central defense headquarter of Hazrat Khatam al-Anbiyah, they covered the sea and the sky of the region, and the westerners did not play any role in this regard.

Regarding this issue, Iran was firm, and no country in the region could convince Iran’s military commanders to refrain from this action. However, the Saudis, who saw how the started fire was spreading to themselves, could not find any country or power that could intervene in this matter. The European countries, completely drowned in the chaos of Iran, did not buy it in Tehran either. At this point, the helplessness of Saudis became sensible. They understood the consequences of not having a relationship at its lowest level.

The Saudis realized that the absence of an agreement that would keep the doors open could be devastating. For this reason, during the visit of the President of China to Riyadh, one of Bin Salman’s significant requests to Xi Jinping was to try to prevent any retaliatory attack by Iran. From the day when the Chinese ambassador in Tehran delivered this request to the authorities of our country, Iran set strict conditions and demands from the Chinese side that; if the Riyadh authorities commit to implementing these requests within a certain period, for the time being, Iran will also avoid Retaliation.

This issue started in December. This time instead of Iraq, China became the arena of negotiations without anyone in Baghdad realizing it. In his first diplomatic intervention, the President of China had managed to prevent a possible war, at least for a while, and this was considered a success for him. The Iranians had answered his request and made the Saudis discover the depth of Tehran-Beijing relations. It was a great privilege for Xi Jinping, and for this reason, he welcomed.

the president of Iran in Beijing at the highest level and in the best possible way.

If you look at the words of the President of China in that meeting, you will notice some significant events. The two countries’ delegation meetings, with the presence of the presidents, lasted more than 4 hours. This time was unique. On that trip, Iran again announced its readiness that if the Saudis give the commitments and guarantees that Iran wants, they will forget the Still-On-the-Table retaliatory action. In this meeting, Raisi emphasized to his Chinese counterpart that Iran has no enmity with any country in the region and wants the best relations with them.

The request followed behind the curtain of politics. However, the Saudis once again busy themselves with false hopes, this time the fall in the Iranian Rial’s value and Netanyahu’s daily attack threats to Iran. Since the president’s visit to Beijing, the Saudis didn’t commit to any of the given commitments. So it was necessary to remind them that options were still on the table. On Saturday morning, several cruise missiles fired at an oil storage facility in Dammam on the Persian Gulf coast. The smokes of explosions were visible as far as Farsi Island.

TEHRAN, Mar. 04 (MNA) – While Saudi media reported a large fire in eastern Saudi Arabia, some social media users claimed that the fire was ignited by a missile attack.

This action alerted Bin Salman and his gang in Riyadh not to indulge Iran’s internal issues. The missiles are not in the hands of their mercenaries, nor are their terrorist reporters in the numerous media outlets authorized to fire them. For this reason, on Saturday afternoon, the Saudi side, disappointed with the American aid and support, informed the Chinese side to expect a delegation to Beijing for negotiations.

From Iran, General Ali Shamkhani, as the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, went to Beijing to hold five-day talks with Saudi security political and military officials. Iran’s demands were logical, positive, and correct to the point where the Chinese side could not take any scraps, but Bin Salman still waited for the outcome of the negotiations in the nightmare of missiles.

Greetings from China in the New World Order

The Westerners did not have the slightest knowledge of the negotiations in Beijing. On Wednesday, the Saudis informed the British as the manager and commander of the war in Yemen, that soon they will agree with Sana’s government to end the ceasefire. Now, all the effective points are tied together. At this stage, it became clear that during the high-ranking Iranian delegation’s four days presence in China, the delegations also discussed other regional issues such as Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, etc.

We have no specific news yet published about the negotiations’ detail, but the signing of this agreement has vast regional and international consequences. We cannot ignore them at all.

Looking at the comments made by Western and regional authorities and even Zionists, we can find some issues and cases. While Binyamin Netanyahu was supposed to go to the UAE two weeks ago, Mohammad bin Zayed officially apologized and said that he could not anger the Iranians and that Netanyahu’s considerable investment in establishing relationship with the Saudis has now lost everything. It seems the relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia had an anti-Iranian focus.

When the Riyadh-Tehran relationship restoration occurs, there is no longer a threat that requires the same act. For this reason, the Saudis informed the White House that obtaining knowledge of atomic energy is the key to the relations between Riyadh and Tel Aviv.

 If the Wall Street Journal has narrated this condition of the Saudis correctly, it means that Bin Salman has placed a big stone at Biden’s feet. Iran did not build nuclear weapons, so we would not see any Nuclear Competition in the region. Besides, the Americans claimed that they were looking for nuclear disarmament in West Asia.

While banning Iran and imposing the toughest sanctions against it, it would be nonsense to transfer this knowledge to the Saudis. Americans did not fulfill this request. If the narrative of this American media is correct, Saudi Arabia’s relationship with the Zionist regime is no longer necessary or possible. It is one of the blessings of the relationship restoration with Saudi Arabia.

As mentioned above, the revival of these relations is considered a great success for the Chinese. By signing this agreement in Beijing, China practically took a big step in the new world order. It became clear that this order, which we emphasized before, has entered the implementation phase. For this reason, we are witnessing the strange reaction of the US to the signing of the agreement, which it summarized as the end of the war in Yemen. This victory caused the Chinese to immediately warn America to dismantle its illegal bases in Syria, which means that China has defined other steps for itself in our region.

It seems that Tehran’s goodwill and Riyadh’s aim to sign this agreement will become a potential factor in China’s position restoration in West Asia. Of course, this position is poison for the country’s competitors like India. But with the lies and double-dealing of Indians before the region countries, New Delhi cannot follow Beijing’s footsteps in any way. Now we have to witness other events at the regional level, the visit of the Chinese president to Tehran will be under the shadow of the signing of this agreement, and the Chinese will fulfill the obligations they have given to two regional powers, i.e., Iran and Saudi Arabia, as a superpower.

Although this agreement will not cause Riyadh to move away from America and the West immediately, it is an introduction to a thick book in the political field and international relations, which has many unwritten pages. In the coming months and based on the fundamental region developments, new lines will appear to change its face. The authors of this book will no longer be from Europe and America, but their behavior will be effective in the formation of this book and will have natural effects on it.

Although this agreement will not cause Riyadh to move away from America and the West immediately, it is an introduction to a thick book in the political field and international relations, which has many unwritten pages.

The authors of this book will no longer be from Europe and America, but their behavior will be effective in the formation of this book and will have natural effects on it. With the writing of each page of this book, we will witness to diminishing of the past rules on the current World Order, first written after the Second World War and then with the fall of the Soviet Union.

The effects of signing the relationship restoration with Saudi Arabia on our internal development will also appear. Its natural outputs are; reducing the sedition of traitorous elements and agents attracted by the Saudi security system, reducing the activities of the media related to the Saudi court and their removal from the field such as Saudi International, restoring the economic relations between the two countries based on the revival of the old signed agreements. It can improve the economy and transform the country. Above all, it will create a business relationship between the two countries. The new condition will boost the creation of new markets for our country.

Let’s take care of the strain of Saudis

In the end, what brought the Saudis to the negotiation table was not their wisdom and resourcefulness. They entered this field by force and the fear of starting a new war in which there was no hope of victory. For this reason, we must look to the future in this field. The Saudis kept their past strategy until recent days. They always hoped that somehow Iran would fall apart and that they would be able to negotiate in a better, not just superior position, at least an equal level with Iran. We will never forget their heavy investment in Iran’s riots and their unprecedented sedition through terrorist journalists and mercenary Persian-speaking journalists.

We have to wait and see what the Saudis will do. Will they turn their backs on the opportunity provided by Iran, or whether they will act and implement the many commitments they have made? Some of these commitments do not require much time to pass. Some effects should appear right now. A place like Saudi International Network is one of those places. As the Qatari mediator in his message brought in the fall, the Saudis said they were ready to shut down this network. It shows how much the position of bin Salman was in danger. Due to Iran’s threats, he has accepted to destroy his most important pressure tool.

As an experience, I would like to say that we cannot trust Bin Salman in any way. We have to wait and see if he stops his vandalism or not. For the Saudis It is not logical to have a relationship with Iran, expecting not to get hurt regardless of their attitude. I do not know about the negotiation’s context, but I know very well that the situation is not in the Saudi Crown Prince fever and his entourage.

Considering China as the guarantor of this agreement implementation, any falsification of promises can affect the Riyadh-Beijing relationship. Since the Saudis do not make any long-term investments and never have the supply and ability to do so, we can deduce that everything they build may be just a temporary game, and they destroy it quickly.

They now see their failure in various dimensions and understand how the European side thinks about Iran behind the scenes, is looking for Iran gas sources, and is putting pressure on Americans not to obstruct the upcoming agreement. On the other hand, they see the Zionist regime’s messed up.

They ask themself how Israelis, unable to manage their internal crisis, want to attack Iran. They saw that in the march of Feb 11, 2023, despite their mercenaries’ efforts with considerable monetary support, the Iranian pro-government supporters protested on the streets of Iran. On the other hand, he saw that despite all the devastation in 1401, Iran remained powerful. So they realize that it would be better to strain.

 We have to take care of the Saudis strain and be aware that they are like snakes under the straw. They make promises when they get a chance. The agreement to restore relations was an unprecedented failure for Bin Salman.

Although Iran is trying to neglect the past harms made by Saudis, this is a sweet truth for our country to succeed in moving forward with patience. Now the Saudis have no support except to be calm and humane. If Bin Salman wants to carry out his ambitious plans and projects, he needs peace, and this peace lies in the peace of others. One should be careful of the Saudis and not allow them to stand with hands on their chests to pretend friendship and the other hand on the grenade trigger ready to harm others.
