Russia's future will be decided without Russia: Conference in Saudi Arabia compared to "Tehran 43"
The summit in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), scheduled for 5-6 August 2023, has been compared online to the summit in Tehran (Iran) on 28 November 1943. They are both dedicated to military issues. The theme of the Tehran meeting, which was attended by the anti-Hitler coalition, was confrontation with Germany. In Jeddah, world leaders are expected to discuss the full-scale war unleashed by Russia and the peace plan proposed by Ukraine.
The author of the anonymous Telegram channel "Spy Dossier" saw historical parallels in these events. He noted that, based on the format of the summit in Saudi Arabia, the participants plan to consider the future of the Russian Federation without inviting representatives of the Russian Federation itself. By analogy with Tehran 43.
At that time, it was decided to open a second front against Nazi Germany in Western Europe. In particular, the Anglo-American side agreed on the decision to "land in Normandy" (Operation Overlord) in the early summer of 1944. The parties also discussed the shaping of the future of the European continent after the defeat of Germany.
"These are the events that popped into my head after reading the news about the upcoming conference in Saudi Arabia," said The Spy Dossier author.
He noted that the venue was not chosen by chance. "For Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, holding this event is important not only in terms of personal authority, but also from the perspective of the development of events in the war in Yemen, where the combined forces of Saudi Arabia are confronted by Iran, supported by the Russian Federation," the anonymous person said.
He drew attention to the fact that Moscow had not received an invitation to the summit.
"Time will tell whether Jeddah-23 will become the new Tehran-43. But there are historical parallels. And the participation of 30 participating countries, including Britain and the United States, is further confirmation of this," the Telegram channel author believes.
