Unofficial sources have announced that Iran, Russia, and China are currently holding talks on a proposal to establish a joint missile defense shield as a counterweight to a NATO defense shield, Mehr news agency reported.

The report, which was published in the Iranian daily newspaper Kayhan on Sunday, said that the sources cited two reasons why serious consultations have been held on the initiative.

First, all three states have come to the conclusion that U.S. officials’ assertion that their concern over the alleged missile and nuclear capabilities of Iran and North Korea is the reason for the decision to establish a NATO missile defense shield is just a pretext and the true objective of the shield is to threaten Russia and China.

In addition, now that the proposal to establish an early warning radar system in southeast Turkey, which is one component of the NATO missile defense shield, appears to be a done deal, the U.S. is now planning to establish other components of the new system in South Korea and Taiwan, which clearly shows that Washington is using the alleged threat from Iran and North Korea as a pretext to target China and Russia.

An informed expert believes China, which has not taken any action on the issue so far, is beginning to comprehend the level of danger posed by the new system, Mehr quoted the report as saying.

Russia’s analysis of the situation is similar to Iran’s view, which was expressed during Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev’s recent visit to Tehran.

Therefore, it seems the three countries have realized that the time has come to seriously start discussions on the plan.

Some sources say Dmitry Rogozin, the Russian envoy to NATO, who is scheduled to travel to Iran before the end of September, will probably hold operational discussions on the plan with Iranian officials.

According to RIA Novosti, Rogozin is going to discuss “strategic issues” in Tehran.

Military experts are of the opinion that since Iran, Russia, and China have made great progress in designing anti-aircraft defense systems, the construction of such a missile shield system will not be a difficult task for them.

    America is insulting Saudia by taking its name parallel to Israel

    Saudi leadors should now isolate themselves from USA and better stand with Muslim Ummah instead of standing with Zionists

    The cold war was orchestrated to keep the western military industrial complex at the top of the global economic charts. Which it did very effectively, it is now the powerhouse of the world. With the global financial crisis threatening their economic might, they needed another cold, or should I say not so cold, just a little chill on international relations to keep the military industrial complex well fed from that old routine of east v west sabre rattling scenario that has proven to be so lucrative to all concerned. Those concerned are the very few military corporate monopolies, and the gangster banksters, and for their political puppets to fall back on when they leave their governmental office, and take up a prosperous position within the banking or corporate arms complex that they supported while in office. The whole political and financial system is as crooked as ever, and getting worse, for they are playing a dangerous global game of nuclear chess that is coming to checkmate for us all.
