Iran, Iraq and Russia All Know: Saudis Behind Terror Campaign
January 18, 2014 • 10:09AM

Russia, Iran, and Iraq have all assembled hard evidence of a Saudi hand behind the recent wave of terrorism targeting the Middle East region and Southern Russia. In a recent visit to Baghdad, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon received an extensive dossier from Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, detailing the Saudi direct involvement in the wave of blind terrorism that has occurred in the Sunni-majority Anbar Province near the Syrian border over the past year. According to news accounts, the UN Secretary General pleasantly surprised Iraqi officials by taking the material very seriously and vowing to launch a UN Security Council investigation. Earlier, Iranian officials had provided their own intelligence on the Saudi Monarchy's direct hand in the escalating campaign of suicide bombings and other terrorism throughout western Iraq, in the area bordering on Syria.

When the Iranian and Syrian foreign ministers were both in Moscow this week, meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and President Vladimir Putin, they were also provided with in-depth intelligence reports on the links of the Saudi Monarchy to the recent suicide bombings in Volgograd and the killings in Stavropol. Russian officials have been crystal clear about the Saudi role in the recent terrorism and the ongoing threats to the February Winter Olympics in Sochi, and have made their views well known to Saudi counterparts in recent meetings.

Lyndon LaRouche underscored the significance of the coordinated efforts of Russia, Iran and Iraq in exposing the Saudi hand behind the terrorism, noting that any combined effort by these three important states can have a serious impact on the Saudis.

China, India and Russia Discuss Increased Security Threats Posed by al-Qaeda and Taliban

Notwithstanding White House's repeated assertion that the 12 years of U.S.-NATO-led war in Afghanistan have withered the terrorist menace of al-Qaeda, China, India and Russia held trilateral talks in Beijing emphasizing the growing threat to the region posed by the stronger-than-ever al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists operating in and around Afghanistan. The talks were attended by senior officials representing each country. Deputy National Security Advisor Nehchal Sandhu led the Indian delegation at the talks, chaired by Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin and attended by Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Yevgeny Lukyanov.

Replying to a question on the Jan. 16 meeting, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei said, "The development of situation in Afghanistan is closely related to peace and stability in the region." "China is ready to work together with all relevant parties to take part in the peaceful reconstruction and reconciliation in Afghanistan, so as to jointly maintain peace and stability," Hong said. Like India, China, too, is concerned over the re-emergence of al-Qaeda and its likely impact on the Muslim Uygur-majority Xinjiang province, which borders Afghanistan and Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir. China is battling a major separatist movement led by the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), an al-Qaeda affiliate group, in the province.

In addition, all three sides agreed future development of Afghanistan is closely related to peace and security of the region. The three sides, as close neighbors of Afghanistan, support the reconstruction and reconciliation process of the country and have been involved in safeguarding peace, security and development of the nation and the region, said the press release. The three sides agreed to improve communication and coordination on the Afghanistan issue, it added.
