Usually, not many alliances are usually formed in the Arab and Islam countries, but these two countries have proven that they can form a lasting partnership. Since the beginning of 1979, these two nations have been in a partnership that has seen them grown in terms of their politics, economy and security levels. The political organization and also operations in these countries tend to be similar in that the rulers are rigid and also like running the government independently. Common interests in politics is what has majorly contributed to the enduring relationship that exists between these two nations.
An example is the case where they both saw Iraq as a threat to their security levels and labeled it as a common enemy. They had concerns that the war would result in unrest in their countries and they, therefore, had to act accordingly. The formed partnership connecting Syria to Iran has proven that they have common interests and that they can be able to attack an enemy together.
It is also through this particular partnership that they have been able to set and also achieve their goals, without the input of other nations. The Syrian government became largely dependent on the Iranian government to supply it with political and also military resources that they needed, once the current ruler took office. This happened due to the fact that the president was not in a position to ensure that a positive and solid relationship existed between Syria and other Arab nations.
At some point, the two countries signed an agreement which allowed their military men to fight together in the elimination of common threats. Although there exist some differences between them, it is with no doubt that they have proven they can work together. They have different ways in terms of how they stand out to other nations. The countries have faced international bans due to their ideologies and associations.
In case one country faces war, the other one steps in to assist and this contributes to the strengthening of their partnership. They have always helped each other in the fight against their enemies, as evidenced by the different instances where each country has been attacked and the other one has also stepped in to help, despite the sanctions that they stand to face. One other thing that has contributed to the cementing of the partnership is that the countries do not get in the way of each other’s interests, and this helps them avoid conflict.
