Iran-China deal will force West to rethink foreign policy: Expert

The historic partnership agreement signed between Iran and China will force the West to revisit its foreign policy that has persistently relied on intervention and exploitation, a commentator says.

“I think cooperation between Global South countries like China and Iran will force the political elite in the Western capitals to sit back and re-evaluate their policy,” Carl Zha, investigator and content producer on the political, cultural, and historical issues that center around China, told Press TV on Tuesday.

The Global South is a rough term coined to refer to, what some call, “developing countries” as opposed to certain Western and Western-allied states.

He said the West’s trademark foreign policy towards the supposed Global South nations has for long consisted taking interventionist approaches towards them so it can comfortably extract their resources.

As an instance of the manipulative attitude, Zha cited the US’s making oil trade dependent on the dollar, and using that petrodollar system to become the so-called “center of the world’s finance.”
