According to news sources, including the Armenpress website and other confirmed reports, despite protests and warnings about the consequences of sending the Armenian ambassador to occupied Palestine, Armen Smbatyan as the Armenian ambassador has been stationed in Tel Aviv. He has also given an interview to the Zionist regime's weekly magazine "Globus".
The basic question s whether the Armenian authorities have a correct and real understanding of the costs of this dangerous and betrayal decision, and more importantly how do they assess the reactions of the Islamic Republic of Iran?
When we see the political situation, geographical problems and many economic problems of Armenia, we will surely find that such a country does not have many choices in the turbulent Caucasus region.
Hence, the geopolitical behaviors and problems of the Armenian government in relation to its neighboring countries can be clearly understood. The daily conflict and being in a state of neither war nor peace with the neighboring country of the Republic of Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh, weak and insignificant relations with Georgia, minimal relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran and severance of relations with its neighbor Turkey (Which is mostly due to the occupation of 20% of the territory of the Muslim country of the Republic of Azerbaijan) shows the difficult situation of Armenia. In such a situation, which called landlocked, Armenia must be very careful in its foreign relations and in choosing its friends and enemies, both in the Caucasus and outside. Undoubtedly, the mistakes of this country in the field of foreign relations will cost dearly.
Based on the analysis of experts and specialists of the issues of the Caucasus region, the desire of the Armenian government to develop relations with the Zionist regime and to open an embassy in occupied Palestine is one of the biggest strategic mistakes of the Armenian rulers. It is clear that this wrong decision of the inexperienced leaders of the Armenian government was made with the encouragement of the US government and the promises of the Zionist regime. Promises to solve economic problems and acquire new technologies have deceived the Armenian government.
Unfortunately, the new team of Armenian rulers with pro-Western tendencies still do not understand the real and main goals and intentions of the Zionist regime in the Caucasus region, and knowingly or unknowingly take steps to serve the interests of the Zionist regime, which strives hard to achieve security and political goals and expand its strategic influence along the geographical borders of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Certainty the greater presence of the Zionist regime in the Caucasus region, which is currently being carried out by the Armenian government, will complicate the existing active conflicts, including the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and increase political, military and security tensions in the region.
The set of actions of the Zionist regime in order to develop relations with the neighboring countries of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which is reflected in the recent action of the UAE to announce the establishment of relations with the Zionist regime and the action of the Armenian government to send an ambassador to occupied Palestine are in fact, a new plan to hit the national interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran on the southern and northern borders.
It is clear that in this regard, the establishment and development of relations with other neighboring countries of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the completion of the strategies set by the Zionist regime are currently being pursued vigorously.
With these interpretations, there is no doubt that the Armenian government is playing a role and cooperation in completing the puzzle of the biggest enemy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Zionist regime in the Caucasus region.
Undoubtedly dragging Armenia between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Zionist regime's conflict will seriously hurt the interests of this country. Iran has a certain amount of patience in this regard and will not tolerate the betrayal of a neighboring country at its northern gates.
The sensitivity of the issue of the development of relations between Armenia and the Zionist regime and its direct connection with the security and national interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran requires a range of counteractions to be put on the agenda. It is clear that the Islamic Republic of Iran has many options on the table, the implementation of which could incur great costs for the Armenian government. Costs that will certainly outweigh the benefits of developing relations with the Zionist regime and will make the Armenian rulers regret.
In general, it can be said that the opening of the Armenian embassy in occupied Palestine and the development of relations with the Zionist regime is a strategic mistake that will certainly have a small and minimal achievement for this government.
Deprivation of the benefits of having a large neighboring country like Iran is not an issue that is easily overlooked. It is expected that if Armenia does not change its behavior on the issue of developing relations with the Zionist regime, this small country will face more problems, difficulties and crises.
