Policy points on how the U.S. should proceed in preventing greater military cooperation between Russia and Iran. Moscow has supplied Tehran with advanced weaponry and technology that is beneficial for the production of weapons of mass destruction. The U.S. must take the weapon transfer seriously as it affects U.S. regional economic and strategic interests in the Middle East.
