Chinese troops will remain on Iran’s soil for 25 years. China has already decided to deploy 5000 troops. The army will be deployed soon, under an economic agreement signed between the two countries.
Pakistan’s influential magazine ‘Nation’ reported this on Monday in the UK ‘Petroleum Economist’. However, Geo TV reported, according to the same source, that the Chinese troops have already reached the ground in Iran.
According to reports, an agreement was signed between the two foreign ministers during a visit to Beijing by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in August.
This is part of the agreement with Iran that China is investing heavily to build the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. According to the agreement, China will invest $280 billion in Iran.
Specifiable, a new friendship was opened between Iran and China. More than a decade later, a president of China fell to the ground on Iran. Trade relations between the two countries were also very limited due to international sanctions. In the last year of 2016 Chinese President Xi Jinping touched on the “cool” bilateral visit to Iran. In his presence, a 17 point deal was signed between the two countries, including a $600 billion trade agreement.
Following the meeting, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Xi Jinping spoke at the press conference with humor. They both refer to it as the ‘new chapter’ of the two countries’ relations.
On January 5, 2016, Iran imposed sanctions on six major powers, including China, following a deal to restrict nuclear operations. Xinjiang’s visit to Tehran is said to be crucial to Iran’s international politics. Xi Jinping began his visit to the Middle East on January 5 with a trip to Saudi Arabia.
“We are very happy that President Xi Jinping is visiting Iran after the sanctions were lifted,” said President Hassan Rouhani at a press conference life on Iranian state television at the time. Rouhani said Iran and China have agreed to raise $400 billion of trade over the next 10 years.
But, in September this year, Iran’s foreign minister said that China wants to invest more than the amount invested in the investment agreement between Tehran and Beijing in 2016. As a result, the contract is updated and the amount of entertainment is $400 to $600 billion. And, the contract duration is 10 to 25 years.
According to the Petroleum Economist, the Iranian media told IRI that Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif visited China late last month, and the deal was updated. At that time, Chinese Foreign Minister and State Councilor Wang Yi called Iran and China a “Comprehensive Strategic Partner.”
