The rapprochement of Israel with Arab countries is the best way to isolate Iran and its supporters. Tel Aviv needs to ensure the creation of a Palestinian state, states the Secretary of State of the United States, Antony Blinken.

As part of his tour of the Middle East, the Secretary of State highlights that there is a path that meets the needs and desires of Israel for integration within the region.

"If you make the necessary commitment to security and you move down the path to a Palestinian state, it's the single best way to isolate Iran and the proxies," emphasized Blinken.

Iran - Russia's ally and supporter of militants

It is worth noting that Iran is an ally of Russia in the full-scale war against Ukraine. The country supplies Russian soldiers with suicide drones called Shahed, which they use to strike civilian infrastructure.

For example, today, January 11, spokesperson for the Armed Forces of Southern Ukraine, Natalia Humeniuk, revealed that a cargo plane from Iran had arrived in Moscow, possibly carrying combat drones.

In addition, Iran assists in financing militants in the Middle East. The country has supported HAMAS, which is currently in conflict with Israel, as well as Yemeni Houthi rebels.
