MOSCOW, December 10. /TASS/. Russia and Iran are playing an honest game in the Middle East while the United States is using chaos in the region in its interests, a Russian expert said at a round-table discussion on Russia-Iran relations on Thursday.
"Russia and Iran are not interested in the US unipolar dominance in the region," Director of the Institute of Caspian Cooperation Sergey Mikheyev said.
"The situation in the Middle East is quite dangerous and directly threatens the security of our countries. Russia has acted correctly, trying to stop the threat of terrorism far from its borders," the expert said.
The joint efforts by Moscow and Tehran in the Middle East are a very positive factor, he added.
"This will minimize negative influence on our interests, if not resolve conflicts in that region," he said. "Various players, including the United States will have to take our cooperation into account."
"The international community would have managed to cope with the challenges of terrorism long ago, if everyone played an honest game," the expert said.
"But actually everyone is playing a double and even triple game while the US is deceiving all and using the chaos in its interests," he added.
