Potential Strategic Cooperation Between Pivotal States in West Asia in Light of Current Changes

The current world equilibrium is undergoing profound and historical changes that could lead to unexpected outcomes in the strategic international balance of powers. This is obvious in the economic structural problems facing the United States and Europe and their impact on foreign policy, as in the case of the United States changing its defense policy over the next ten years.

A prominent consequence has been the emergence of the concept of “regionalism”. West Asia can be seen as a model constituting an important strategic region containing pivotal states, namely the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries as a regional organization, India and other countries such as Iran and Pakistan. Cooperation between them may lead to the rise of a new geostrategic reality that is more positive than the prevailing regional atmosphere.
