Khamenei tells Putin to ‘ditch US dollar’


Russian president Vladimir Putin was in Tehran on Wednesday for bilateral talks between Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan . Putin held meeting with Dr. Rouhani and Aliyev (a Shi’ite Muslim) in Tehran. Afterwards Putin visited Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei. This was Putin’s sixth meeting with Ayatullah Khamenei.

During the meeting Khamenei highlighted the success of military cooperation between Iran and Russia with Syrian army in Syria – Khamenei said: “The defeat of the US-lead coalition supporting terrorists in Syria is an undeniable fact, but they continue to hatch plots.”

Khamenei also told Putin that both countries should utilize their recent useful regional and bilateral experiences to boost cooperation between the two countries.

Full resolution of Syria’s crisis needs strong cooperation between Iran and Russia. Our cooperation can isolate United States. This cooperation will restore stability in the region,” Khamenei told his guest.

Khamenei also suggested that both countries can nullify US sanction, isolate the US by various methods such as eliminating US dollar, replacing it with national currencies in bi/multi-lateral trade transactions.

Israeli propagandist in a smearing campaign are highlighting Khamenei’s suggestion to Putin to dump US dollar – but the idiots don’t realize that Putin in September 2017 instructed Russian Duma to pass a law making the ruble the main currency of exchange at all Russian seaports by next year.

Nearly 23 countries are abandoning US dollar including China, Germany, India, France and Britain in the near future. Latin America’s largest oil exporter Venezuela stopped accepting payment in US dollar in September 2017.

Both Iran and Russia are under US sanctions – Iran since 1980 and Russia since the Ukraine crisis.

In response Putin praised Iranian policies to bring peace and stability in the region. He also assured Russian support for 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and the six world powers (US, UK, Russia, China, France and Germany) which Donald Trump dumped last month.

According to some western financial pundits, if Russia begin dumping its treasuries en masse in the open market, then it could trigger an immediate US$16 trillion return of all dollars offshore as countries already wanting to get rid of US currency find the perfect opportunity to not be left holding the bag.
