Usually, not many alliances are usually formed in the Arab and Islam countries, but these two countries have proven that they can form a lasting partnership. Since the beginning of 1979, these two nations have been in a partnership that has seen them grown in terms of their politics, economy and security levels. When it comes to the way that they conduct their politics, these two administrations share common qualities in that they are defiantly independent and authoritarian. Common interests in politics is what has majorly contributed to the enduring relationship that exists between these two nations.
The countries fought together in ensuring that the war that was going on in Iraq would have no effect on their security is this is a good illustration of their common interests. They were worried that the war in Iraq would slowly penetrate their borders and they, therefore, had to put in strict measures to ensure that this did not happen. The lasting partnership that is present between the Iranian and the Syrian political systems represents a common goal and also the fact that these two are able to fight together as one.
These two have been able to come up with objectives and also ways to achieve them due to the mutual trust and interests that they have and as a result, they have been able to survive without aligning with the international and also local calls for them to alter their ways. The Syrian government became largely dependent on the Iranian government to supply it with political and also military resources that they needed, once the current ruler took office. This happened due to the fact that the president was not in a position to ensure that a positive and solid relationship existed between Syria and other Arab nations.
At some point, the two countries signed an agreement which allowed their military men to fight together in the elimination of common threats. These nations have globally proven that their relationship is unwavering, despite the differences that they have. They have different ways in terms of how they stand out to other nations. The countries have faced international bans due to their ideologies and associations.
In case one country faces war, the other one steps in to assist and this contributes to the strengthening of their partnership. They have always helped each other in the fight against their enemies, as evidenced by the different instances where each country has been attacked and the other one has also stepped in to help, despite the sanctions that they stand to face. The fact that they have varied ideologies in terms of their interests in each other’s territory has ensured that they get to respect each other’s move, and not interfere with their plans.
