“NATO route is connected with Russia’s decision on Iran” – journalist

NATO has opened a new military supply route to Afghanistan which passes through Russia. At a meeting of the alliance's defence ministers, the bloc also signaled its eagerness to work with Moscow on missile defence.

Investigative journalist Giulietto Chiesa sees a connection between the opening new supply route and Russia’s decision to approve sanctions against Iran.

“This is a big gift that Russia is giving to President Obama, taking into account the very difficult situation that NATO is facing in south Afghanistan. This new road would be very important and comes at a very delicate moment,” Chiesa told RT.
