In the wake of iran's islamic revolutionary guard \"al-qaeda brigade\" commander of the u.s. attack and death, iran's islamic revolutionary guard senior commander abkha hamza said,\"[ middle east gulf] this area about 35 american targets and [israel] tel aviv is within our reach.\" In response, U.S. leaders warned that if Iran attacked U.S. personnel or assets, the U.S. would strike 52 Iranian targets quickly and violently. The US-Iranian contradictions have once again entered a spiral of spiralling upward spiral, which has led the international community to worry that impulsive and short-sighted decisions will explode the Middle East's \"powder keg\" at any time.
U. S.-Iranian relations have a long history, and the death of Major General Sulaimani is the latest crack in the wall of U. S .-Iranian relations. In the anti-colonial wave of the 1950s, Iran's democratically elected prime minister, Mossad, touched British and American interests by promoting the nationalisation of the oil industry. In August 1953, the United States used a coup d'etat to overthrow the Mossad regime and helped bring King Barevi to the fore. This has seeded the rupture of relations between the United States and Iraq. In 1979, the iranian islamic revolution overthrew the bharavi dynasty. As a result, U.S.-Iranian relations have fallen into decades of confrontation. Today, a significant portion of Iranian society has grown up under US sanctions. Sulaimani's death has undoubtedly brought surging public opinion. How to resolve the pressure of public opinion on the premise of ensuring the fundamental interests of the state and the nation is a major challenge for Iran.
History has repeatedly shown that unilateral use of force and extreme pressure are counterproductive. Since the emergence of chaos in West Asia and North Africa, the situation in the Middle East Gulf region has continued to be volatile, and some anti-government forces, supported by Western countries, have grown savagely on the margins of the world order, becoming increasingly extremist and terrorist. The emergence of an extremist group, the Islamic State, in itself represents a failure of United States counter-terrorism policy.
In this context, Iran, seen as a key ally of Syria, has strengthened its counter-terrorism cooperation with the Syrian government and some other forces. Meanwhile, Iran has seized the opportunity to expand its influence in the \"Shia Crescent \"zone, including Iraq. The Al-Quds Brigade, affiliated with Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, is a leading force in the expansion process and is seen as challenging American interests. In April 2019, the United States classified Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps - the armed forces of a sovereign state - as a terrorist group to increase the scope and strength of \"extreme pressure\" on Iran, leading to further tension between the United States and Iran.
It is accompanied by a reversal of Iran's comprehensive nuclear deal with the six countries on the Iranian nuclear issue (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany) in July 2015. With the U.S.'s unilateral exit from the agreement in May 2018, the Iranian nuclear issue that once achieved a soft landing has been reignited.
After Sulaimani's attack and death, the Iranian government announced on Friday that it had entered the final phase, the fifth phase, of suspending the implementation of the Iran nuclear agreement, and abandoned the last key limit in the agreement, the \"limit on the number of centrifuges.\" However, as China's foreign ministry spokesman pointed out, the Iranian side, forced by external factors to reduce its performance, has also demonstrated restraint and clearly expressed its political will to implement the comprehensive agreement in a complete and effective manner, without violating its obligations under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. All parties should remain calm and rational, and push the Iranian nuclear and Middle East situation toward a calm.
At the same time, the international community has called on both sides to exercise restraint. U. N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned through a spokesman that \"the world cannot afford another Gulf war.\" The leaders of France, Germany and Britain issued joint statements in response to the situation in the Middle East, calling for restraint and accountability to ease tensions. It can be seen that it is in the common interest of the international community that the situation in the Middle East takes its toll on the whole body and reduces tensions as soon as possible.
The situation in the Middle East is highly sensitive and complex, the military means have no way out, and the ultimate pressure is even more unworkable. All parties concerned should give full play to their political wisdom, work together to uphold the principles of the Charter of the United Nations and the basic principles of international relations, work hard to get out of the vicious circle of confrontation and return to the track of resolving problems through dialogue as soon as possible, so as to avoid a new crisis in the Gulf region of the Middle East.
