This analysis contains the following sensational revelation which I have no way of confirming but makes perfect sense in the context of the overall situation
“The signing of the agreement was threatened by the fall of Palmyra, which cut the « Silk Road », in other words the communications route between Iran on one side, and Syria and Hezbollah on the other . In the event that Palmyra should remain in the hands of the jihadists (in other words the mercenaries who are fighting against the « Axis of Resistance » ), Teheran would be unable to transport its gas and export it to Europe, and would therefore have no interest in signing an agreement with Washington.
The Assistant Secretary of State thus informed the meeting that he had authorised the « Axis of Resistance » to bring fresh troops into Syria in order to defeat Daesh. By that he meant 10,000 Revolutionary Guards, who would reinforce the Syrian Arab Army before the 30th June. So far, the Syrians have been defending themselves alone, with help only from the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Turkish PKK, but without Russian or Iranian troops or Iraqi militia.”

While the signature of the agreement between Washington and Teheran draws ever closer, Thierry Meyssan retraces and analyses the policies of François Hollande in the Near East which uphold his support for the Gulf monarchies and Israeli apartheid. Indisputably, the author demonstrates the fact that this policy, which is contrary to the values of the Republic and the interests of the Nation, exclusively serves the personal ambitions of a few individuals and the social group they represent.

The summing up of the meeting at Camp David on Thursday between President Barack Obama and “Heads of Delegations” of the Gulf Cooperation Council [GCC] member states couldn’t have been an easy job. To begin with, the planned summit didn’t quite happen in the absence of several key leaders from the GCC side. Except for the leaders of Kuwait and Qatar, the other 4 declined the US invitation. Funnily, the king of Bahrain, an important regional ally that houses the US Navy’s 5th Fleet, preferred to instead visit a horse show in Britain.

The real Masters of the Universe in the U.S. are no weathermen, but arguably they’re starting to feel which way the wind is blowing.
History may signal it all started with this week’s trip to Sochi, led by their paperboy, Secretary of State John Kerry, who met with Foreign Minister Lavrov and then with President Putin.

The first disclosure regarding Saudi Arabia’s impending announcement on the termination of its air strikes on Yemen didn’t come from Riyadh. It came from Tehran. The Saudi Ministry of Defence formally made its statement a few hours later. (FARS news agency). Clearly, intense consultations preceded the announcement and Iran was not only in the loop but had positioned itself in a key role.

The integration of Iran into the international community is expected to be the last frontier in energy politics. No doubt, it will be a game changer and it would have an Asian vector and a European vector — and a Russian-American vector. The major players are gearing up for action to cope with the new great game in energy politics.

A great deal of drama has been recently evident in the global media portraying a “personal” rift between the US president and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The US-Iran negotiations have successfully crossed the boulder that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threw in the way via his outreach to the American lawmakers. The conclusion can be safely drawn after Netanyahu’s speech that neither do the US lawmakers feel emboldened to enact new legislation intended to complicate the US-Iran talks nor is President Barack Obama feeling browbeaten to backtrack on his policy toward Iran.
