Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s controversial Foreign Minister, resumed his post on Wednesday, February 27, after Hassan Rouhani refused his resignation.

However, this round trip revealed the extent of internal crises in the Iranian theocracy.

As for Hassan Rouhani, although he is delighted with the return of the irreplaceable head of diplomacy, we must point out that this event put an end to the government’s credibility on the international scene. While the fact that all decisions on the Iranian Regime foreign policy are taken by the Supreme Leader and his close guard, and not by the President and his cabinet, was already a matter of public record, Mohammad Javad Zarif’s action dispelled any doubts that might still have been expressed on this subject. Yet, it was no one but the general Qasem Soleimani, who took the lead in limiting the damage by saying that Zarif was indeed the head of foreign affairs of the Islamic Republic. The choice of the Commander-in-Chief of the Qods Force, in charge of extraterritorial operations of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, was at the very least clumsy to launch such an assertion. If there is anyone other than the Supreme Leader who is not accountable to anyone, including the head of the diplomacy, for his agitation across borders, he is the general Qasem Soleimani who has been nicknamed the “butcher of Syria”!

In any case, the Fararu website, close to Rouhani, does not agree with the Soleimani: “This resignation proves that the government does not play a leading role in foreign policy”.

“Zarif’s resignation has put an end to the government’s credibility and its place in the Iranian political system on the international scene,” says Mehdi Motaharnia, an expert close to Rouhani, quoted by Fararu.

“The regime’s foreign policy is not the domain of the government and the departure of the FM or even the President of the Republic will not change that,” adds Motaharnia, who points out that serious decisions must be taken within the next six months, especially with regard to relations with the United States.

“The dispute is not tactical,” said Fereydoun Majlesi, a former diplomat of the Iranian regime, also close to Hassan Rouhani. “We have to see whether or not we want to get back on track, a foreign policy that started with the JCPOA[the nuclear agreement signed in 2015 with five international powers] and was later destroyed,” he added

“In the current status quo, the rejection of FATF legislation could be sufficient for the resignation of the entire cabinet,” the former diplomat added: “It should come as no surprise that even Hassan Rouhani would have to resign.

At the same time, in the clan of the Supreme Leader, there is no hiding his fury. Hossein Shariatmadari, the editor of the newspaper Kayhan, was angry that the resignation of the first diplomat from the Rouhani cabinet overshadowed Bashar al-Assad’s visit to Tehran, which he described as a “victory”. “It seems that Mr. Zarif does not appreciate this victory very much,” Shariatmadari said, pounding Zarif for his record “marked in particular by the defeat of the JCPOA.”

Kayhan’s editor-in-chief also mentions that “external enemies ridiculously refer to Zarif’s resignation to deduce the regime’s debility.”

On February 26, Mashregh News, a website close to Ali Khamenei, also castigated Zarif and accused him of trying to influence society in order to put pressure on the state to “admit new concessions to the United States.

“The resignation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, which occurred at the worst possible time, transmits a significant message to the West,” Mashregh News repeats, adding: “The resignation of the FM, which occurred at the worst possible time, transmits significant pulses to the West.”

This designation acknowledges the website close to Khamenei, “could persuade the West that apart from the economic crisis and the crisis in living conditions in Iran, the political situation at the head of the state and government is also in crisis.

In an official February decree posted to the portal of legal information, Russian President Vladimir Putin has appointed his aide Yuri Ushakov to chair the organizing committee paving the way for the first Russia-Africa summit that Moscow plans to host in Sochi. The Russian government is to ensure financing of the expenditures related to hosting the summit and the decree has further assigned Rosscongress, a major organizer of international conventions, exhibitions and public events, the task performer.

The idea to hold a Russia-Africa forum was initiated by President Putin at the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit in Johannesburg in July 2018. This first Russia-Africa summit will definitely enhance mutual multifaceted ties, reshape diplomatic relationship and significantly to roll-out ways to increase effectiveness of cooperation between Russia and Africa.

Policy experts have suggested, however, that Kremlin has to substantiate its future African policy agenda with consistency, activeness and support, and enhance its participation in the economic development of Africa.

“Indeed, through the summit, Russia has to discover specific expectations, new directions and how to deal with Africa. The games there have completely changed, many global players have also adopted investment strategies more appealing and acceptable for Africans,” Dr. Kelvin Dewey Stubborn, South African based Senior Analyst on BRICS and African policy, told me by email from South Africa.

He suggested that “the Russia-Africa summit has to focus discussions on new development-oriented thinking and how to transfer Russian technology to industry and agriculture more collaboratively, and a lot more cooperation on employment creation across sectors. That’s the best way to sustain peace and eradicate conflicts in Africa.”

South African business tycoon, Sello Rasethaba, questioned how Russia was going to establish a thriving trade relationship with Africa for the benefit all and sundry. In reality and effective practical terms, how Russia wants to reposition itself in relation with Africa. With business relationship, Russia has to consider practical strategies in consultation with African countries. The fact that the middle class is growing in leaps and bounds in Africa makes this market even more attractive and opens more opportunities also for Russian businesses.

“The current investment and business engagement by foreign players with Africa is on the increase. There are so many unknowns up there in Russia, it’s crucial that Russia has a clear vision of the relationship it wants with Africa. Russia together with African countries must setup sovereign wealth funds using the resources power of those countries,” he said.

There are similar views and sentiments. Rex Essenowo, Member of the Board of Trustees of Nigerians in Diaspora Europe and Senior Executive of Asian Africa Trade, a Moscow based business lobbying NGO, said it was unfortunate that some people consistently undermine Africa’s strategic interest, that is infrastructural development and lifting its vast population out of poverty in Africa. Playing the conflict card is strategically destructive because the warring parties want to present Africa as unsafe for investments.

“It is for African leaders to remain focused on the right direction, resolute in conflict management and as well rolling out new implementable policies oriented towards building infrastructure, modernizing agriculture, investment in manufacturing and industry – these will offer employment for the youth. Meanwhile, we are not even using one tenth of our capacities on investment promotion at the international platforms,” he added.

Essenowo further argued that the future of Russia-Africa relations has to take into cognizance the true meaning of building a platform for civil, media and cultural as well as people-to-people interaction, helping to change the attitudes and mentality, remove old stereotypes, – these are important steps for improving business cooperation. In addition, Russia could help to deepen understanding through regular dialogue with the civil society and governments, as basis for economic growth, development, as well as motivation for confidence among Russian investors within the region.

Despite its global status, Russia lacks assertiveness in Africa. Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to Russia, Major General (rtd) Nicholas Mike Sango, told me in an interview discussions that, “For a long time, Russia’s foreign policy on Africa has failed to pronounce itself in practical terms as evidenced by the countable forays into Africa by Russian officials. The Russian Federation has the capacity and ability to assist Africa overcome these challenges leveraging on Africa’s vast resources.”

Mike Sango further expressed his views as follows: “Africa’s expectation is that Russia, while largely in the extractive industry, will steadily transfer technologies for local processing of raw materials as a catalyst for Africa’s development.”

Many former Ambassadors, mostly from Southern African region, have also tasked African leaders to prioritize concrete development projects and reminded them that it was necessary to make rational choices, push for “African solutions to African problems” within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) when they finally gather at the forthcoming October summit in Sochi.

The summit sessions have to discuss thoroughly “the whole range of development issues that will ultimately form the future African agenda” and analyze them through the prism of rivalry and competition among foreign players on the continent, according to a summarized separate media interviews with the former African envoys who served in the Russian Federation. Now, Africa finds itself in an excellent position of having many suitors – each offering something it needs for its development, they acknowledged.

Quite recently, Vyacheslav Volodin, the Chairman of the State Duma, told an instant meeting held with the Ambassadors of African countries in the Russian Federation, that Russia would take adequate steps to deliver on pledges and promises with Africa countries. “We propose to move from intentions to concrete steps,” Volodin reassured.

On the summit, Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov has explained earlier that arranging an event on such a large-scale with the participation of over fifty heads of state and government required most careful preparation, including in terms of its substantive content and equally important was African businesspeople who have been looking to work on the Russian market.

“The economic component of the summit has a special significance as it would be of practical interest for all the parties. As such, specific Russian participants in bilateral or multilateral cooperation should be identified, which are not only committed to long-term cooperation but are also ready for large-scale investments in the African markets with account of possible risks and high competition,” Minister Lavrov noted in an interview posted to his official website.

For decades, Russia has been looking for effective ways to promote multifaceted ties and new strategies for cooperation in energy, oil and gas, trade and industry, agriculture and other economic areas in Africa.

President Vladimir Putin noted at the VTB Capital’s Russia Calling Forum, that many countries had been “stepping up their activities on the African continent” but added that Russia could not cooperate with Africa “as it was in the Soviet period, for political reasons.” In his opinion, cooperation with African countries could be developed on a bilateral basis as well as on a multilateral basis, through the framework of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

But so far, Russia has not pledged adequate funds toward implementing its business projects and other policy objectives in Africa. Russia’s investment efforts in the region have been limited thus far which some experts attributed to lack of a system of financing policy projects. While Russia government is very cautious about making financial commitments, Russia’s financial institutions are not closely involved in foreign policy initiatives in Africa.

As publicly known, China has offered $60 billion, Japan $32 billion, and India $25 billion, while large investment funds have also come from the United States and European Union, all towards realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Africa.

The century long Paraguay-Japan alliance and strategic economic partnership is perfectly depicted through the vivid paintings of Yuki Hayashi, a female painter born in Itapúa grown up in a colony of Japanese immigrants, in Southern Paraguay. Hayashi’s roses painted on canvas encompass the multifaceted partnership and successful diplomatic alliance that has existed between Asuncion and Tokyo since a hundred years ago, a time when both countries established their diplomatic relations and on November 17th, 1919 signed a bilateral trade agreement under the leadership of Paraguayan President José Pedro Montero and Emperor Taishō.

These unique relations have been strengthened thanks to the enormous contributions and presence of Japanese immigrants in Paraguay, economic assistance and technical support provided by the Japanese Government towards the socio-economic development of Paraguay and the commercial and cultural exchange that has existed for decades among both nations.

The establishment of Japanese colonies in Paraguay began in 1936 with the arrival of the first Japanese families in La Colmena City. After a brief intromission due to the Second World War, the diplomatic relations were re-established once again in 1959, both governments subscribed a convention on migration that enabled 85,000 Japanese immigrants to establish their homes in Paraguay.

In 1960, approximately ten thousand Japanese immigrants started their new lives in the Departments of Itapúa, Alto Parana and Amambay, dedicated to agriculture, beekeeping and apiculture. Today Paraguay is home of over ten thousand Japanese descendants who are tremendously contributing towards the economic development, improvement of agricultural production standards and public education infrastructure. Furthermore, the Japanese community’s hard work and spirit of sacrifice is greatly admired by the Paraguayan people. Japanese Diaspora in Paraguay, is a genuine bridge that connects Eastern Asian societies with the South American Continent and helps establish a transpacific bondage.

Since 1959, when Paraguay was governed by General Alfredo Stroessner, a staunch U.S. ally during the Cold War; the Japanese Government has provided economic and technical assistance to Paraguay, generously assisting some of the most vulnerable sectors of Paraguayan society including: public education, culture, strengthening of public health services, technical training, agricultural development programs, improvement of national infrastructure and vocational training and scholarships.

On December 2, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe conducted a historic visit to Asunción; in his meeting with President Mario Abdo Benítez were discussed the following issues:

Prime Minister Abe, as the first Prime Minister of Japan to visit Paraguay, appreciated that Paraguay shares universal values with Japan as a historical and friendly nation that is home to Nikkei community of approximately 10,000 people. Prime Minister Abe stated that 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Paraguay.

President Abdo Benítez welcomed Prime Minister Abe and noted that this visit marks an important moment in the long and positive history between Japan and Paraguay; he is the first Japanese Prime Minister to visit Asunción.

Both leaders welcomed the dynamic political dialogue and trade and investment-related initiatives observed in recent decades, they reaffirmed the conclusion of negotiations on a bilateral investment agreement.

In the field of development cooperation, Mr. Abe welcomed Paraguay’s request for a grant aid in improving public health and medical care services, as well as approval of a grant aid for the “Project for Procurement of Dredging Equipment for Paraguay River”. This infrastructure project will continue to support economic growth and Paraguay’s sustainable economic development in the future. President Abdo Benitez expressed his gratitude for the cooperation extended by Japan.  

In his public statement, Prime Minister Abe stated that Nikkei community in Paraguay contributes to Paraguay’s economic development, and are performing an important role as a “bridge” in the relations between the two nations. President Abdo Benítez expressed his gratitude for the contributions of Nikkei community to Paraguay’s economy and society.

In the field of people-to-people exchange, both statesmen welcomed the fact that bilateral cooperation is moving forward in a myriad of sectors, including the fields of space research, university to university partnerships and scholarships, science, engineering education, transfer of agricultural technology and sports.

The silhouettes of Yuki’s paintings and supremacy of her colors encompassed within her extract of artistic conception, genuinely depict the sublime friendship that has existed between Paraguay and Japan while it is poised to forge a lasting fraternity that bolster the economies and unites cultures of both nations.
