China & Iran
By Micah Halpern

Sunday June 6, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

I read strategic reports all the time.

The reports issued by Israelís Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) are always worth reading.

One of their recent studies discusses the importance of the role of China in harnessing and guiding Iran.

The suggestion is made that China is maneuvering to assume a more responsible role in international affairs - especially in the Middle East.

China is one of the only countries in the world that can influence Iran. Until recently China was, to put it plainly and simply, a user and abuser in the region.
The Chinese maximized their economic gain and their influence. One of their ulterior motives is Ė and always was, to hurt the US at every turn.

China now is interested in expanding their role.
The objective of Israel and of the West, including the United States, should be to influence China to act responsibly and to use their role of trusted ally of Iran to urge Iran to moderate their moves and their activities.

Iran often acts to destabilize. China just may be the power to bring stability to the region.

They will not do it to help Israel or to help the West. They will do it to further improve their role in the region and position themselves as the power that can insure stability in the region.
