Russia 'the Only Force Able to Help the Middle East'
"I believe that the only force that can help the region is Russia," Hooshang Amirahmadi, Professor at the US-based Rutgers University and President of American Iranian Council told Radio Sputnik. "This is honest. Thank God, Russia has fortunately taken a very constructive view on its role in the region, particularly in relation to Iran and the Arab world and in relation to Iran and the West," he added. "It is very unique and noble because Russia always in the past had wanted Iran to be in conflict with the West and the Arab world. Things have changed. And we should give the credit for it to President Putin," Amirahmadi noted. The Iranian expert's comments are a follow up to the address of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the US General Assembly on Thursday.
