Not really a blog, rather a question.


Up to the break up of the ex Soviet Union, it was 50-50. Why did Iran allow the 3 newly formed republics to take away so much that Iran ended up with only 11%, negotiating 20% but to no avail so far.

Now that some of the sanctions may be lifted and, consequently, the IRI will be less dependent on Russia, will they take a different approach to the issue ?

PS. please sustain od IRI vs so n so. would appreciate more straightforward answers and/or informative links.
